“Want to come again”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

What a find! We loved our stay and want to come back again. Great house furnished with all you might need. Plenty of room for everyone in a big group and the outside space is also amazing. Beautiful views from all upstairs bedrooms (all ensuite - luxury!).

“Fab Place, Fab Location , Great for large Groups , Stunning Views”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I booked this a year ago for a group of friends to celebrate my big 50.
This house is a great place for large groups . The bedrooms were out standing it was great with everyone having there own bathroom .
The house had everything you required , well equipped kitchen , we loved the large dining table so we could all sit together and enjoy meals .
We also enjoyed the games room and the piano for a sing song .
I would highly recommend this property .
The owner was very proffesional with booking information and was at hand if needed .

“Fabulous for large family gathering”

person found this review helpful

We had a fabulous time at the Vicarage, it is really a lovely place in a gorgeous setting, beautifully furnished and catered to all our needs. It accommodated 10 family members of different age groups with ease. The dining room allowed us all to sit together and enjoy our meals in comfort and the sitting room was spacious and had several sofas for all of us to sit together. We had a wonderful family experience, despite the grotty weather!

“Fantastic gem of a place just outside of keswick”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Great property, the photos online do not do it justice!
The house is big, there was 7 of us and we had more than enough space. The kitchen was kitted out, plenty of sofas so everyone was comfortable.
The views! wow, we spend most of the weekend sat in the garden enjoying them.
Would booked again!

“Brilliant - Didn't want to come home...”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Stayed with a group of friends at the weekend and had a fantastic time!

The house was spacious, clean and comfortable (and had everything you could ever possibly need), but it was the views surrounding the house that were absolutely breath-taking.

Could not recommend this place more, such good value and truly a home from home.

“Lovely Getaway!”
Reviewed 18 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

5 couples stayed for 2 nights in Feb. We all loved it! Beautiful location, with amenities within driving distance (you probably could walk, but we drove!) Great for groups of friends, or families wanting a relaxing break away or walking holiday.
We plan to book again next year. I would definitely recommend!
