This beautiful house easily accommodated our party of 9 adults, 5 children(aged 5 to 15) and 2 dogs! Eric and Helen were very welcoming and provide some lovely little extras. There was plenty of outside space and the views from the patio were stunning. The location made the southern lakes very accessible. All in all, a comfortable and relaxing holiday for our family.
Week spent in Bankfield house with a party of 9 adults, 5 kids and 2 dogs.
House was lovely and clean, towels provided and bedrooms spacious and comfy and enough room to make most into family rooms.
Plenty of space for our party not to feel on top of each other, although the kitchen did feel slightly cluttered with a lot of bits on the work surface, along with the extra kitchen table and chairs.
House itself is maintained for a house of its age.
The kids spent a lot of time in the garden which is secure. Plenty of car parking space.
Bankfield house is a beautiful house in lovely surroundings. Everything a large family group with 2 dogs could possibly need, very clean, spacious,and well equipped . The garden is perfect for all and Helen and Eric have thought of all the touches to make your stay easy and relaxing. planning our next stay already!!

We were a party of twelve adults and one large dog. We stayed for three nights and had a great time. Bankfield house is a very spacious comfortable and well presented property. The kitchen is equipped with everything needed for cooking large family meals. The rooms are all lovely. We took advantage of the good weather and had a BBQ in the garden on the first night. The large conservatory was great for meals in. All in all, a fantastic stay. Many thanks to Eric and Helen for a warm welcome and for a very nice welcome pack.
Stayed at Bankfield House for a weekend to celebrate a family birthday.House is fantastic, full of character and is very well stocked with all those things you forget to take away with you. Garden is great for the kids and has wonderful views. Planning returning for another stay next year.
Travelling from Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Portsmouth my family and I have just returned from a week spent at Bankfield House. We loved every minute of our stay-it truly is a fabulous house with everything you need supplied-homely and comfortable. The house has spacious rooms and a lovely ambiance.
We enjoyed breakfast in the kitchen with the AGA giving that country kitchen feel-a great place to start the day. Out and about around the beautiful Lake District through the day knowing we would return to chilled and relaxed family dinners in the spacious conservatory was perfect...followed by games of scrabble and Pictionary (supplied) in one of the lounges. My 1 year old grandson loved the space to crawl around and he slept like a log every night in the travel cot supplied by Eric and Helen..proving he felt at home here. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay...cannot fault this as a place to stay, comfortable spacious rooms, plenty of space for being together or having time for yourself, great safe garden for the dogs. Our hosts Eric and Helen were just lovely. We plan to return as all in all--"Just Perfect.."
Our family consisted of 12 adults and 3 children and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The house is nice and spacious so we all had enough room to mill about without feeling like we were ontop of eachother. We especially loved the large dining area in the conservatory and ate as a family every evening. Considering it is a large house, the heating had no problem getting the house nice and toasty, we had great weather so only needed to take the chill off later in the day. We all loved the bathrooms as there was enough for everyone we and found the bathroom particularly relaxing. All our bedrooms were lovely and spacious but we did give this a 4/5 star rating because we could have done with a little more storage space and a few of the beds weren't particularly comfortable unfortunately. We remedied this with extra duvets ontop of the mattresses to pad them out. We would suggest families who get an online shop delivered to the house not to go too over the top on frozen items as we found that there wasn't enough room and had to refrigerate most things instead. This was only because there were so many of us and so we had quite a big shop.
I must say when booking the holiday Helen and Eric were very helpful and friendly and couldn't do more for us.
The area is lovely and there are plenty of places to visit by car, with a lovely walk to grange village which takes about an hour on foot and 5 minutes by car. Bowness is a lovely day out and Ducky Farm near Bankfield House is amazing for the kids. The only downside was having grandparents walking up and down jack hill to the local pub etc as it was pretty steep!
I would definitely recommend this accommodation to other families and friends alike.
