“Wonderful family Christmas ”
Reviewed December 27, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We have just spent a wonderful Christmas staying at the farmhouse (all 12 of us). Brenda couldn't do enough for us and was more than happy to show us around on arrival, despite it being Christmas Eve!

The house was already decorated with a Christmas tree and decorations, which only added to the Magic. The enclosed garden was perfect for our dog to roam around and the living room was so cosy with the gas fire and bags of space to spend Christmas morning around the tree.
The kitchen well stocked and we all fit round the table to eat our Christmas dinner and leftovers on boxing day.

The bedrooms are perfectly laid out and warm.

The only things we'd like to see would be more large dishes in the kitchen for serving many people and a larger fridge would be great. However there was plenty of everything else we needed and we wouldn't think twice before planning another stay in the future.

Thanks again.

“Where cherished memories are made”
Reviewed September 3, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Having just returned home, I wanted to log on & ensure that our review was posted immediately. This has been now our third year in a row we have visited Allonby & stayed at the Crookhurst Farmhouse, the first two years were with our daughter now 12, but this time we also travelled up with our little adopted boys age 1 & 2 & of course our little chihuahua. Brenda the owner welcomes you with such friendly northern heart, arms ready for a hug & our little boys felt welcome straight away. The house is lovely & each time we come, there are more renovations complete, even though we thought it was perfect before. It was,the lounge room this time its now considerably larger & very accommodating, As a family with young children, this house is perfect in every way, stair gates, travel cots & even toys. We do love it here & will definitely ensure that Crookhurst & Allonby become a regular part of our cherished holiday memories. Thank you Brenda as always xx

“Absolutely fantastic! :)”
Reviewed July 12, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our stay was very pleasant. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner who was lovely and gave us a tour of the house and two cottages. We were really impressed how stocked it was with all dishes provided. The owner even went out of her way to get us a muffin tin as we had left ours at home! Everything was very clean when we arrived and there was plenty of space at the dining table and in the living room for us all to gather. There is loads to do within a short drive and Allonby and the beach is a short walk away. I would definitely recommend Crookhurst to anybody and we will definitely be coming again! :)

“Lovely large house”
Reviewed June 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Lovely large house with plenty of space for everyone. We had the large farmhouse plus the adjoining cottage and found enough room for 15 adults. The living room is large enough to accommodate everyone and the garden is nice to sit out in. Kitchen was well equipped. Only a short walk/drive into Allonby and the beach, and not far from the lake district for days out.

“Does excatly what you would want”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A group of 12 of us stayed here for a weekend in October. The house is perfect, the rooms are larger than the photographs suggest and the kitchen was a good size for so many of us. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all fair and fit for purpose. The only downside is the low door heights, if you are 6ft or over you will need to duck under every door. This is common in buildings of this type and there is not much the owner can do about it but it’s still worth mentioning.

The location is great. Very quiet and tranquil with farmland surrounding the property. It’s a 15min walk along the country road to Allonby or a couple of minutes in a car. There is no pavement so I would not recommend walking on the country road in the dark.

The owner, Brenda was very accommodating and great to deal with.

Would recommend it.

“Absolutely Perfect in Every Way”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Once again, another fantastic holiday location, we had such a wonderful time last August holidays that it was worth the 5 hour drive back up again. This accomodation is homely and perfectly located to be able to walk into Allonby, swim in the sea, run around with the dog and our daughter on the endless sandy beaches and eat great value pub meals in town. Wtihin short driving distances, you are able to visit the beautiful Lakes of the district and many other tourist attractions. We love it so much, we have already booked Crookhurt Farmhouse again. The owner Brenda could not be lovelier, you just want to hug her. Brenda, thank you very much for showing us and our little girl around the milking farm & the adorable gingerbread cake. See you again next year.
