So we wanted to organise a family get together for my mums 70th. (12 adults.... 9 grandkids!!).... And we found the wonderful house in Coniston. What a find!! Shona who sorts booking was so helpful and very patient which is so important when sorting out 20 people and payments!! So when we got to the house... The first thing is the location..... Just so central and very easy access to the lake. Even better for the kids the park is over the road. Parking was great too.... Easy fitted our 6 cars. When we arrived there were beautiful flowers and a cake waiting for us. The house itself is just fabulous.... So spacious but so homely too. We literally did not want to leave!!! Everything is thought of... Right down to highchairs for the babies! We were very lucky with the weather and were able to enjoy the bque and the beautiful gardens. We loved it so much we have booked again for next year!!! Loved the recycling too.... We used so many bottles that it was good to recycle and so close to the recycling centre too. All in all 10/10.....i could not fault it and just wish the house was mine!!! Thank you so much to shona for making a very special family holiday xxx
This property was absolutely stunning! We booked it for a weekend for my husbands 30th birthday. The property was comfortably equipped for us all & everyone was very happy with the accommodation & location. We wouldn't change a thing. It was also lovely to arrive to a home cooked cake to start the celebrations off! We are already planning our next visit. Thank you x
Just got back from a weekend at Kirkbeck house and it was absolutely perfect! The photos on here honestly don't do it justice, the house has everything you can possibly need for a weekend away with a large party. We've made some fantastic memories this weekend and I can't wait to book again!
I just wanted to thank you for out lovely stay in Kirkbeck House.
Wonderful company, surroundings,even the weather came up trumps & well the house just topped everything off.
Everything we could have wanted or needed come rain or shine & much, much more.
The very thoughtful & much enjoyed cake on our arrival, was a lovely touch.
Generally the house was very well located and close to town. The owner is very easy to deal with and we found it very suitable for our purposes. Areas for improvement: the place could be better stocked with amenities for arrival, the internet connection was quite patchy for the large group, the TVs are too small in size for large groups, (they should be bigger), the Trivial Pursuit edition needs upgrading, and more towels are needed for longer stays. We are a fussy bunch, but for the price paid I think there are areas to improve on. I think asking guests to dispose of recycling materials, however close to the house, is too much, and a recycling bin or area should be provided. Other than that, the students had an excellent time.
We had a fantastic family weekend at Kirkbeck House last weekend (celebrating our parents Golden Wedding anniversary) and my son's 16th.
The house is wonderful and spacious and at the same time it feels so homely and cozy. It is so well equipped, I don't think there is anything that you haven't thought of! The whole family(17 people and 2 dogs) enjoyed the gardens, the large dining kitchen- meal time was a buzz- and the pool table in the basement!
The lake is a short walk away and Coniston itself is small but perfectly formed with a few pubs, all family friendly, plus a fish n chips shop - all on your doorstep within a short walk.
We'll all have fond memories of a brilliant weekend forever.
Large house perfect for a group of friends: places WITHOUT all rooms having double beds are surprisingly hard to find! Nicely furnished - comfortable without being so posh you couldn't relax. Exceptionally well equipped kitchen and dining facilities - all the wine / whisky / beer glasses you could want! Perfect for memorable birthday.
