We were a party of 15 adults. Every single one of us fell in love with this place. The house itself is amazing and the surrounding area is beautiful. The weather was kind to us but even though the temperature fell down to around 1 degree at night the house was always warm, that is a feat on its own because the house is vast. The large kitchen area, the sitting room, the playroom are all brilliant.
We travelled together in a minibus and although the lane to the house is quite narrow, quite steep and quite bendy it is quite manageable. The outdoor hottub is amazing and although it was cold outside , it was beautiful in the tub.
The biggest problem we had was allocating the bedrooms, because, although they are all good, two or three of them are absolutely brilliant.
We did not have any children with us, ,but, even though the large gardens are great, I would think children would need to be watched, trip hazards etc.
Jules who owns the house has been very good and helpful to us. Thank you for that. All in All this place was Absolutely Brilliant for us. Oh yes and the view from the front of the house , for some reason, hey its only trees and water, was breathtaking. We hope to visit this place again. Thanks.
We all had an excellent family pre-Christmas get together. The house is fully equipped for people of all ages which was great. We couldn't believe how much space there is. Those that wanted to relax for the weekend could enjoy the views which really are spectacular. The rest of us were in the games room or hot tub which kept us entertained and having a laugh the whole time. It really is a great place and was perfect for us who as a family only get chance to meet up a for couple of times a year due to living all over the country. Will definitely be coming back as soon as possible.
My 60th birthday get together with family and friends, fantastic from the arrival to the end. Plenty to do inside 2 large TV's with sky, pool table,chess table amused our 3 yr old and plenty of bathrooms with two spa baths and fancy light/music showers. Fantastic views from all front facing Windows. Great kitchen where everyone took a few turns at producing great meals. Spacious bedrooms with comfy beds and the house was warm. Do take your own towels though.
Fabulous garden to explore and relax in the ultra modern electric jacuzzi or play air hockey or ping pong. A short walk to the cove is a must - stunning.
There was space for everyone to get together or find a quiet spot to just sit and read.
Plenty of dishwashers, washing machine etc all facilities for an an all round great holiday, if you love getting together and the Lake District you should stay here. Loved it and would go back.
We had an amazing time here in June. The house is so big and open that we didn't fall on top of each other. There was plenty of space for numerous cars too and we didn't feel like we were bothering the neighbours (the few that there are) when we were playing outside.
Nice distance away from the beach and the small village (where there is a co-op and a pub). Not too hard to find and it is completely equipped. We got a food deliveries to the house which was a good idea if you all team up to order your food :).
Rooms were all great, especially the rooms with hot tubs. Unfortunately during our stay there was little hot water so we couldn't completely use this facility but it didn't matter too much and the owner was kind enough to give us to compensation for this!
Jules was a pleasure to communicate with - he answered all of our inquiries quickly and friendly. We only wish we could have spent more time there!
spent a week at bay view, 18 adults, 4 children and 2 dogs. We had a fabulous time. Loads of space in the fantastic house, which meant we werent falling over each other. lovely location and views, plenty of room to play boards games without disturbing others. we even managed to have a "pub quiz" in the lounge that everyone took part in. not too far to travel to other destinations like the lakes etc. Deposit returned within 3 days of us returning home, jules very helpful on our arrival. Would recommend without hesitation.
