The Manor House was our family home and we would like you to be able to enjoy it as much as we do. It is not a five star hotel but this, with its old fashioned charm, is where we believe its beauty lies. All you need now to complete the picture is a group of good friends or family.

Location description from owner

The England region

Cumbria is of course famous for its beautiful lakes (Wordsworth country) and its undulating lofty fells, hills and mountains and these can be taken full advantage of in this lovely house in this wonderful part of the world.

If walking is not necessarily for you, then there are plenty of other activities to enjoy such as visiting the many abbeys, monasteries, churches and of course castles that Cumbria has to offer. Many of them only a short drive away. Closer to home is our local town, Kirkby Stephen where you will find plenty of places to eat lunch or afternoon tea or perhaps enjoy a warming cup of cocoa on those colder days or a pot of tea and a slice of cake. It is quaint and as well as the many choices of cafes and pubs there are also antique shops offering both fine antiques as well as more affordable country antiques. There are also, of course, shops where you can purchase your groceries, newspapers and essentials.

Kirkby Stephen

Every Monday there is a farmer’s market which has been held in the town centre since 1530. Certainly worth a visit to soak up the atmosphere of this ancient town and get a feel for the farming community, agriculture being the main occupation for the people of Cumbria. Cumbria is known for its country fairs as well as its tradition of sheepdog trials, dry-stone walling contests, hound trailing, fell racing to mention but a few. Watch out for the Cumberland sausage (no they won’t jump up and attack!) - these sausages can measure up to 4 feet long and are baked whole, of course having previously been wrapped up in a coil! Also, look out for the Cumberland Ham, another traditional and popular Cumbrian delight.

“Excellent well equiped family house in quiet village with an super pub”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2013

I booked the house for myself and 10 others (French) for a walking Holiday. It was the first time in England for all, apart from my wife and me. They all loved the house, the walks,( although the lake district ones were a little bit too far) and the day in York, that they are pestering me to organise another trip next year. Ideal house for a large group, with lots of space, both Inside and out. The local pub (50 metres) is both friendly and serves excellent food, or in the words of Denise, who learnt 3 English words I Love You. Thank you again, the house made our Holiday. ,

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the lovely review and for taking the time to write it. You would be so welcome to come back again in the future. A bientot...

“Spacious, comfortable, well equipped and well located - lovely!”

Reviewed 31 Dec 2012

We booked to celebrate a 60th birthday with the full family and were delighted to find a spacious but homely venue for the weekend celebration. The owners were very helpful in making preparations for the weekend (Asda home delivery recommended!) and the handover of keys etc was straightforward. The kitchen is a country living dream - Aga to keep everything and everyone warm, very large table to seat everyone comfortably. Now I understand what Mr Cameron means by a 'kitchen supper' - friendly, everyone involved in the preparation as well as the eating. The living rooms are extremely well furnished - almost opulent with large leather chesterfields - and comfortable, and large enough to allow the whole group to gather in one room or split if young and old have differing ideas of fun... Bedrooms are comfortable and spacious, also well furnished. Bathrooms too, especially if you like a long soak in a bath after a day's outdoor activities. Only quibble would be the lack of a good shower option in the house for those who prefer the invigoration of a power shower to blow the day's dust (or mud) away. The location is great too - the local pub (a real local too) is a few yards walk away with good food and beer. Kirkby Stephen is a 5 min drive for a stroll and light shopping. And the wonders of the Pennines are on the doorstep. We chose Barnard Castle and the Tan Hill Inn as bases, but there is so much more to be found if you have the time and energy. Lovely weekend in a lovely house in a lovely location. Just lovely!

Owner's reply: We are so glad you enjoyed the 60th birthday celebrations and thank you so much for writing a review. We are delighted that you had such a good time at The Manor as we love the house to be filled with people enjoying themselves. Good news about the shower - we are fitting a shower room shortly! You also chose some really good places to visit - Mark and I (and the family) also love trips to The Tan Hill Inn and a little antiquing in Barnard Castle.

“A Beautiful House in a fantastic location - perfect for a big get together”

Reviewed 20 Dec 2012

I organised for a large group of 14 to stay at the Manor House. We stayed for 2 nights and all had a brilliant time. The Manor House is a beautiful old house, with really beautiful period features. Everyone commented how well they slept and all enjoyed a hot shower in the morning. We loved the big kitchen and enjoyed experimenting with the Aga. The house is very well equipped and easily caters for 14. We loved the big spaces to relax in – and big tv in the snug was great for a game of sing star. The house is well stocked with fire wood and kindling and so we made a fire each night, which made it very warm and cosy. The surrounding area is stunning and easily navigated, although there are lots of leaflets and maps in the house to help you out. We easily managed to wander into the village via footpaths and back again. On the Sunday we ventured out to the pub, which serves up a great cavery at excellent value, before heading home. We’ll definitely be back and have already recommended the house to our friends – thank you for a really successful weekend away!

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for writing this review. We are so delighted that you all enjoyed your time at the house and that you found it so relaxing. Many thanks also for recommending the house to your friends! Mark and I look forward to welcoming you again on your next visit.
