This place was brilliant, I couldnt recommend it highly enough. The house is beautiful and pictures don't do it justice. The inside is very clean and tidy, nicely decorated with plenty of space and cosy beds for everyone staying there. The kitchen has everything you need with tons of space too. The surrounding area is incredible, with miles of countryside and some lovely nearby towns not too far away. The host Brenda was incredbily helpful and lovely to talk to, made the whole stay easy and all the much more enjoyable. Perfect for a family getaway or a large group. If I could rate it higher than 5 stars I would.
We booked all 3 cottages as there were 20 of us. It was very spacious and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. Lovely quiet location - Allonby and the beach are in walking distance but there is no pavement so have to walk in the road. It was perfect for a family/friends get together.
A great place for a family get together or large party of friends to, well get together. Set in beautiful countryside with amazing walks it is peaceful and calming. The local village a short walk away has many excellent: shoreline, icecream, fish and chips and pub. A fabulous place to stay.
Our stay in Bowscale View cottage is coming to an end. This is our third visit, last 2 times were in the big farmhouse. Both are extremely comfortable and have everything you could want for.
Brenda is just so lovely and nothing is a bother.
So close to everything but at the same time out of the way and peaceful. The views are just beautiful.
We can't recommend highly enough.
Until next time!
I booked this property for my brother's stag do. We wanted somewhere entirely out of the way so we could be as noisy as we liked without disturbing other people as there was 18 of us in total.
I and my friends could not have been happier with the our weekend at Crookhurst. The main farmhouse is spacious and well furnished. It has been quite recently modernised and the workmanship is top notch. The beds are extremely comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with glasses and all the utensils you would need for a proper self catering soirée.
We met Brenda on the Friday and she is absolutely lovely. She couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating, assuring us that if we needed anything at all she was only a phone call away. We didn't need anything else though because everything was so well prepared for us.
The scenery surrounding the house is gorgeous, rolling fields that the sun sets over turning everything orangey-pink. There's a garden where that overlooks this lovely landscape. We had a BBQ with us and we sat outside each night and drank in the country air.
I also cannot emphasise value for money here enough either. Very reasonable rates.
Overall we were so pleased with our stay there is already talk amongst the group of a stag reunion (if there is such a thing!) next year.
Big thanks to Mrs. Wilson for everything.
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.
