“Perfect house for a large group”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

After spending weeks on the internet we finally found this treasure!
12 of our family stayed at Bankfield House to celebrate our mums 70th birthday -3 couples, one 27 yr old, 3 teenagers, a 6 yr old,a 3 week old baby plus one dog!
As previous reviewers have said before the house is very spacious and really well equipped but the photos don't do justice to how lovely the house really is-the space and the views are amazing-our dog was worn out just running around the house and gardens!
A really warm and sociable house yet as a large group we were never on top of each other and as there were 4 toilets and 3 showers there was never a queue for the bathroom!
The bedrooms were fab and we slept in all the available beds plus fold up beds and the only bed that got a complaint was the sofa bed as it dipped a bit in the middle.
Helen and Eric had left a handy welcome pack but had also left a 70th birthday card and flowers for my mum which was a lovely touch and shows they go that one step further to make your stay special.
We all agreed the house was perfect and have already booked to return next year :)

“Fantastic spacious house in a great location!”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed at Bank Field in march, eight adults, one of who was in a wheelchair, and a 3 month old baby. The house complete our stay and made it into a truly fantastic holiday. The house is spacious, wonderfully decorated, has beautiful views across the bay and is great for entertaining and socialising. We had a warm welcome from Helen and Erik who were so helpful throughout our stay. I would recommend the house to anyone and hope to stay there again soon!

“A perfect mixture of grandeur and homeliness”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

An adult family group of nine of us plus 2 Labradors enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Bankfield house in March. We were met by our friendly hosts Helen and Eric who live next door and given a tour of the property. We were made to feel very welcome. The house is located in a stunning position overlooking Morecambe Bay. It is very well equipped, warm, spacious and well situated for south lakes attractions. It is well worth the walk up Hampsfell to appreciate the views. The Pheasant inn also deserves a visit, delicious food. We would have no hesitation in booking Bankfield again.

“Amazing Unforgettable Weekend”
Reviewed February 7, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

A party of 12 adults and 4 kids stayed here for a long weekend at end of Jan to celebrate 40th Birthday. Property exceeded our expectations, amazing house with plenty of space, great views and well equipped. We have stayed at many properties in Cumbria but this beats the lot. We were met by Helen and Eric on our arrival, who showed us around and everything we needed to know. The house had a warm welcoming feeling as you walked through the door and was decorated with great modern taste whilst keeping traditional look. All our guests expressed interest in booking the house themselves in the future. If you have kids it is a great place for them to have fun, and especially if they like hide & seek! We would just like to thank Helen & Eric for making our weekend so special and will have no hesitation in booking Bankfield again in the future, I am sure we will be back. Thankyou
