The house was perfect for my family get together

By Kate on 18-Mar-2024

Lots of space, comfy beds, well equipped, plenty of parking, loads of games, toys books and films which made children feel welcome. Didnt use the cars for 3 days.Great walks from the house.Enjoyed boating on the lake, shopping in Hawkshead, walks round Moss Eccles tarn and a fabulous Sunday roast in Tower Bank Arms 5 min walk away.We are planning a return trip.

he house was a delight

By Colin on 03-Jan-2024

We were two families staying at Lakefield over the New Year week. The house was a delight with a huge sitting room & amazing views over Esthwaite. It was warm, spacious & well equipped to cater for the 9 of us. There are walks straight from the doorstep on this quiet side of Windermere & crucially, two pubs close by! Owners Guy & Jane clearly care about providing a homely getaway for families. We would definitely return.

A perfect house in a perfect location.

By Petra on 10-Feb-2024

A perfect house in a perfect location. Works well for a group with different abilities due to the ground floor facilities (there are 2 steps by front door and 2 into the main living area to consider). Room for up to 5 cars. Well equipped for families like ours who love to cook and spend quality time together. The open fire was lovely and the view like a living painting. Perfect to park up and walk. But equally not too far to get to Ambleside, Hawshead or Bo''ness. Highly recommended a stay at Lakefield House.
