“Perfect location for girls weekend”
Reviewed January 19, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Party of 11 women, plenty of space, house well equiped. Enough bedrooms and bathrooms for us all and a huge conservatory where we could all eat together. Altogether, would thoroughly recommend. It even snowed, to make it more picturesque!

“A fabulous house to explore around the area or just relax!”
Reviewed January 5, 2016 for a stay in June 2015

We had a wonderful 3 night stay with extended family and friends from Canada. The house has all the amenities you could wish for including a very generous starter pack with a lovely bottle of wine!! The pub,which is is at the bottom of the hill but it is quite steep and quite a trek back up. We took Cartmel races in which was great fun and only a mile down the road.
The house is very clean and with beautiful bedrooms and more than enough bathrooms. The view is exquisite and the neighbors are lovely!!! We enjoyed it so much we are back there again this coming weekend!! 08/01/2016...............Review to follow!!

“Generous and well equipped”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed here this past weekend with our family and 5 dogs. The house was very well equipped, the owners were very lovely and more than helpful. The couches were comfy, bathrooms clean and house was warm. We would highly recommend and we will definitely return.

“Great house for large family get together.”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We booked the house to celebrate grandmother's 80th birthday, the house was well located for guests travelling from Manchester and Scotland. The house is large, beautifully decorated and yet homely. There is a conservatory where 15 of us dined in comfort and ate our BBQs. Its in a good spot for exploring the coast, the Lakes and Cartmel. The booking and arrangements were all straightforward as the owner is very pleasant and most importantly we were able to bring our dogs. We'd go again.

“Beautiful house with very versatile accommodation.”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This beautiful house easily accommodated our party of 9 adults, 5 children(aged 5 to 15) and 2 dogs! Eric and Helen were very welcoming and provide some lovely little extras. There was plenty of outside space and the views from the patio were stunning. The location made the southern lakes very accessible. All in all, a comfortable and relaxing holiday for our family.

Reviewed July 31, 2015 for a stay in July 2015


Week spent in Bankfield house with a party of 9 adults, 5 kids and 2 dogs.
House was lovely and clean, towels provided and bedrooms spacious and comfy and enough room to make most into family rooms.
Plenty of space for our party not to feel on top of each other, although the kitchen did feel slightly cluttered with a lot of bits on the work surface, along with the extra kitchen table and chairs.
House itself is maintained for a house of its age.
The kids spent a lot of time in the garden which is secure. Plenty of car parking space.
