“Perfect place to stay..”
Reviewed December 30, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

I booked Park House for a family Christmas holiday. The house is actually spectacularly really nice and the photographs do not do it full justice. Every room is very spacious, the kitchen is fully equipped, the lounge has plenty of seating and a very easy to use log fire and the dinning area has plenty of room for the eight people setting. All four bedrooms are really cosy and comfortable with modern clean bathrooms. The grounds are lovely to walk around and the owner Anne-Louise is extremely helpful, welcoming and nice. Staying at Farm House for Christmas 2016 made our family holiday a very special one.

“Beautiful location”
Reviewed September 19, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A group of friends booked this property as a base to stay in while we attended a wedding nearby. So glad we found Park House as it could not have been a better home for the weekend!

Anne the owner found us enjoying the garden and views of the surrounding farmland shortly after our arrival and welcomed us warmly (we had already met the canine members of the family who all in our party wanted to take home!). Anne is very friendly and around for any issues that may arise (although none did for us) and she even let us use her beautiful house as a backdrop to some pre wedding photographs!

Park House itself was perfect for us. 4 spacious bedrooms, 3 modern bathrooms, large and well equipped kitchen and dining area and a comfortable lounge area. The old style wooden doors and ceiling beams in the master bedroom are great touches hinting at the buildings past life. The beds were extremely comfortable and the silence of the area makes for a good nights sleep.

Cannot recommend highly enough!

“The perfect location in the Lake Country”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Park House was spacious, immaculately clean, and well-equipped. It's setting on a working farm, set far back from any main roads made it the perfect place to return to each evening after our explorations in the countryside. We loved it! What a total change from our hectic world.

The Johnstons were more than gracious - to the point of providing us with food and wine on the night we arrived too late to shop for groceries or eat at any restaurant. 10 Stars!

“Silent, scenic, well equipped - a gem that has to be highly recommended”
Reviewed August 10, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We loved our stay at Park House. Everything was very tidy, the owners are very nice and are interested in the guests and their problems. The small garden area is surrounded by wide grassland with cows and we loved to have our BBC there. The house itself is a great mixture of old and new. The bathrooms are all new and the kitchen is perfectly equipped. We would highly recommend the house to any family or group that love to live in silence and the beauty of nature.

Thank you so much for the time!

The accommodation was brilliant for our large family with little ones as well. A few flies around, but it is a farm. The owner was always on hand to help with any issues.

“Fabulous accommodation with wonderful views”
Reviewed January 3, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Our family stayed at Park House over the new year period. There were 6 adults and two young children. The house was fantastic and had every amenity you could hope for. We love the large log fire in the lounge and the logs provided for us in the outbuilding. We could not fault the accommodation and the owner Anne-Louise could not have been more helpful. The surrounding area is great for walks and little villages but you are also only 15 minutes from Penrith. We would also recommend the Shepherds Inn in Langwathby..
