Beautiful property, with great views. 5 of 5

By Diane B on 18-Jan-2018

Beautiful property, with great views. 5 of 5 We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Lakefield House, an Easter break for 12 of us ranging in age from 20 months to 72 years and we all had a brilliant time (despite not having very good weather). The cottage is very spacious with a large lounge which seated us all and had a lovely view over Esthwaite Water. It is well looked after and very clean. The bedrooms are all a good size and the beds comfortable with three en-suite and one family bathroom, all lovely. The kitchen and dining room are very good and well stocked with plenty of crockery. As I said we didn't have great weather, but we still went out, we visited Tarn Hows and Grizedale Forest and got the ferry across to Bowness. We also visited Brockhole in Windermere, which was great for the children in the group. Some also made use of the table tennis in the garage and the children enjoyed the garden. The house is like a home and we were all sad to leave. Hopefully we'll be able to return one day. Review Submitted: 04-Apr-2016 Date of Stay: March 2016

Spacious and well equipped in a beautiful spot 5 of 5

By Sarah N on 18-Jan-2018

Spacious and well equipped in a beautiful spot 5 of 5 We had a great stay at Lakefield. There was plenty of space and bathrooms for everyone to have their privacy and the large kitchen/dining area and lounge easily accommodated us all, usually around a toasty log fire! The location was great for walks and there were lovely views from the house. A great stay, thank you! Review Submitted: 19-Jan-2017 Date of Stay: January 2017
