“We loved itl”
Reviewed 23 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was a lovely place to stay in a quiet part of England. We had an almost one year old with us who had great fun in the space. Great walk to Melmerby's highly recommended pub. And Hadrian's Wall is not so far away.

“Loved every second!”

We stayed in this beautifully converted church with our family (6) and 3 small dogs. We loved the open layout so much space, it meant that we spent more time together, cooking and playing board games and the dogs loved it! The bedrooms were huge and each had an en-suite, also the garden is fully walled off, so we had no fear letting our dogs out at night. I would recommend this rental to friends and families. The location is in a quite village just outside the Lake District (Buy your food in Penrith 20 min away), which means it's much cheaper and still very close to all the attractions.
When you come and visit I recommend going to High Force Falls and doing the beautiful walk down to Lower Force Falls, then having a great lunch at the tourist info. Also visit Ullswater, it must be the best lake there is!! Stunning!! You can Drive to Glenridding (One the edge of Ullswater) and just before you hit Glenridding on the right there is a National Trust sign, park here and follow the Footpath to Aira Force Waterfall.
One the other side of Ullswater, there is Hallin Fell (a hike up to an amazing view) Park at - The Parish Church of Saint Peter Martindale, Cumbria. But remember to go inside the church, the stain glass is beautiful!!
Thank you so much for an incredible holiday!!

“Wow! The lost weekend!”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Brilliant place. Beautifully converted. Dogs loved the garden and we all loved everything else. Kitchen is well equipped and we were able to cook a fantastic roast for 8 without any hassle.
Would definitely recommend and would like to stay again.
