"A wonderful place for a group holiday. Voted the best by all the family. Loved the cosy fires."

"The house provided a cosy retreat for our first full family Christmas for years. We all really felt at home."

“To all at Eskmeals. Just to say a big thank you for our weekend in Cumbria. The house and gardens were amazing and we couldn't have had a better time . . . Eskmeals house really made our holiday, we definitely want to return. Thanks again, Emma and friends.“

“Just to say what a wonderful place you have there. All our party had a great time with laughter, plenty of good food, drink and conversation. It was a great family catch up and the kids are all fully exercised and exhausted. Hope to visit again sometime. Cheers from us all” The Butterworths

Eskmeals exellence

  • 4 of 5

We booked the house for a joint surprise 60th birthday weekend. Our party had 19 adults, 2 children and one baby. Everybody had a bed, and the house did not feel cramped at all. The dining table (which easily fit 20 people) was brilliant.

The house has a real charm - and the coal burning fires made it very cosy!

The hosts, Kevin and Yvonne, were superb. The met us with the keys, and then left us to it. However - they were always on hand to answer any questions or solve any problems. The T.V actually broke after the first night. I reported this to Kevin, and within a few hours we had a brand new 40" LED TV in the front room. You can't ask for better service than that!

We took all our own food for the weekend - and there was ample room in the many fridges and freezers.

Outisde there are horses in the field and two playfull dogs - which was great for the kids in our party.

We would reccomend this house to any large party - and we are already planning our next visit.
