“The most wonderful house.... What a find!! 10/10 all the way!!!!!”
Reviewed 15 July 2018 for a stay in May 2018

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

“Amazing property!!”
Reviewed 5 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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!

“Good house in little village and close to Coniston Water”
Reviewed 25 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

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.

So pleased you all had a good time.
I think perhaps one of the problems may be that you only just over half filled the house, had there been 20 of you the price would have been £16.50 per night per person, because there were only 12 of you this pushed the price to £27 per person so maybe your expectations were quite high, just for info though it costs £30 per person to stay at the youth hostel shared dorm and bathroom). The TV 's are 32'' I think adequate, but I get that people want bigger and better these days. I hate TV, if it were up to me I would have them removed, but it wouldn't make much business sense. I am currently looking into improving the Wi-Fi, although I have had several people say to me how lovely it is that the kids can't disappear up into their bedrooms it has forced them to join in. I will look at updating some of the games.

You're right I have made the decision to not make it my responsibility to recycle a weeks worth of recycling for parties of 20 every week, it's a ball ache of a job for one, easy if you have a group doing it.
I think the thing is, it is billed as self catering, I couldn't possibly second guess what a party of 20 might need or want, I make sure that if they arrive before the shopping they can get a cup of tea and a slice of cake, that there is loo roll in every toilet as a start, some dish washer and washing liquid, then let the party decide and buy what they require, i think this is normal practice for self catering.
I literally offer our lovely home with linen and towels. there are plenty of extremely expensive alternatives with whistles and bells, our aim is to provide a home from home, clean well maintained and decorated and well equipped for large parties in a beautiful setting for what I believe to be a reasonable price.
Thank you for my 5 star review though, and all your comments, I really appreciate it. It would be lovely to hear from you again in the future.

“Family memories for a lifetime at Kirkbeck House”
Reviewed 6 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

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.
Thank you.

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.
