“Idyllic and tranquil dog friendly home from home”
Reviewed 3 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Couldn't have been more perfect or magical for a getaway with friends. The quirky house is remote and surrounded by serene nature. It was so lovely to wake up only to the sound of the river flowing outside. Lots of space - even for 8 adults and a dog. Particularly loved sitting on the veranda looking at the stars, and our little dog loved going for walks in the surrounding area. Wish we could have stayed forever!

“THE MOST PERFECT GETAWAY - BEAUTIFUL!”
Reviewed 11 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We booked this holiday home after a very long search for somewhere that could host a large group to celebrate a 30th birthday. From the moment we got in touch with Jane, she was hugely pleasant and made everything very simple for us. Although we were excited about the trip, it wasn't until we saw the house that we realised how very special it is!

With its unique setting, quirky lay out and cosy country furnishings I'm very sure that there is nothing else like it around! It is incredibly spacious inside and almost has 'wings' when you book the flat alongside the main house. For a large group of couples (and one single!) it had everything we needed.

We arrived as it was getting dark so for everyone to wake up with the stunning views on to the river at the back it was a real treat. Many of us took to going for a stroll each morning - one even went in the river! We also loved that both Jane and Ron are keen to encourage recycling/Eco awareness at the same time as making sure that the house has all the facilities that you need.

Thank you SO much for hosting us there. We would love to come back soon and have already recommended it to so many people.

“What a great location”
Reviewed 18 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The bungalow was exceptionally spacious, with plenty of room for the eight of us to sit, cook,eat, etc, The location by the river was excellent and the walk along the river or into the village is very pleasant. Being without tv for a weekend was no problem and the children all improved their game playing skill (of the board game type !) Both Jane and Robb were always available to answer questions andpoint us in the right direction. The pub in Wray, the George and Dragon, should not be missed, as the food is very good and the owners are very peasant.

“Hideaway in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a wonderful family celebration at Roeburnscar. It was a 70th birthday and we wanted to invite people from different generations . This lovely dwelling met all needs and we were able to relax in peaceful surroundings, eat and drink together and enjoy beautiful scenery.
The surrounding area is varied and we enjoyed the coastal views of Arnside and Silverdale; the splendour of the trough of Bowland and the many pretty villages with welcoming pubs.
The owners were very concerned that we had a great time and their friendliness was amazing. Massive commitment to the environment in all aspects of Roeburnscar which is reflected in the beauty of the place.

“Chilled”
Reviewed 27 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Had a fantastic 2 night stay here with my wife and her parents. A gorgeous place with stunning scenery as the house is nessled within the forest next to the river roeburn, it feels like your miles from reality. We took in a couple of fantastic walks with our little pooch and also did the 20 minute amble into the village and had a pint in the local and some excellent grub in the tea rooms. Perfect destination for a relaxing weekend sat on the balcony or if you wish done your wellies and get exploring!!

“A beautiful place to stay!”
Reviewed 28 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This was a beautiful place to stay while I was helping my mother who lives nearby to pack to move. The sound and views of the rushing stream, being in the forest, and a gorgeous walk every morning before leaving helped reduce the stress of the move. The owner was very helpful when needed and took care of whatever I needed, and the place was spotlessly clean!
