We took a group of adult students to the house for a residential weekend. The house had plenty of space for everyone and it was amazing to all sit at the same table to eat. The kitchen is well stocked with large pans, plates, mugs etc so made cooking and eating a pleasure. I would definitely recommend it to a friend or to other tutors looking for somewhere quiet to go for a residential
The Big White House was the perfect accommodation for our family get together. It was very clean, well laid out and had lots of dishes, glasses and cutlery to accommodate our party of 20. It's central location is great for getting out and about, the enclosed large garden makes it perfect if you have young children or dogs. We will certainly consider staying again.
The house is huge, and I don't think that the pictures do it justice! We booked this place for the week and I think I speak for us all when I say we had a really good time. I've just checked out of rehab and thought it was time to write a review haha, as a week is a really long time for a stag party! The house is situated around 12 miles away from Workington, which when we got there on Tuesday we were informed by the nice young lady at the bowling alley that "everything decent to do in town is closed until Thursday". So we went to the nearest Tesco for supplies and made our own entertainment back at the house.
On the Saturday we had a walk along to the next village which was around a 15 min walk. There are a couple of pubs which we tried. The Masons Arms had very nice, reasonably priced food and was quite a quiet place...until we arrived and about 10 mins later a hen party from Newcastle arrived which made things interesting for the next hour or so and defiantly livened the place up.
All in all, a great house in a great location and would recommend both this house and the pubs down the road!
The big White House is an excellent house for large gatherings.. Plenty of ensuite rooms and sitting rooms make this an ideal base for a family get together
We booked this for a family holiday and we've had a great week. This house is well equipped and has everything you could possibly need for a big crowd. Plenty of storage space! There were 18 of us and we had a great time. We made good use of the grounds with the kids who had lots of fun, riding their bikes, meeting the cows and playing games.
We stayed here for a family 70th birthday, the house is big great for games with the Pool table and many lounge rooms. We had good weather so made use of the large space outside. The house is well kept and clean.
Plenty of space for 3 generations to get together, and away from each other too!
Kitchen well equipped, nice touches of washing up liquid, dishwasher powder etc.
Feels a bit like a care home, some rooms very cosy and dated but very clean and warm.
A location map on the notice board would be an idea, especially as we arrived in the dark and unsure of bearings.
Comments / tips book would also be good to learn from others.
Overall very successful weekend
