We chose as a family Glassonby Old Hall to celebrate our sons 30th birthday as it was in the ideal location for all of our grown up children to meet with partners and as soon as we arrived we knew it was the perfect choice.
5 star it definitely is, from the lovely hamper to welcome welcome us on arrival which was a fabulous touch and much appreciated to the excellent decor of the halls rooms were all to the highest of standards.
Thank you Christine and Jilly for accommodating all our requirements and making our stay so special .
We will definitely be booking again with you.
We really enjoyed our stay at Glassonby Hall. The accommodation is beautiful. The walk recommended in the welcome brochure is well worth it. Highly recommend the Crown Inn in the nearby village. The chef cooks amazing food! Would definitely like to return.
Booked her last November after deciding that no one needed more stuff for Christmas so it was better to buy us all the gift of time together. I looked through a lot of holiday homes and just kind of stumbled on Glassonby Old hall and I'm so glad we did.
Upon arrival the house was absolutely pristine, not a speck of dust to be found. The kitchen is better stocked than even our own at home and the bedrooms are wonderful and large. Both fires had even been set with wood to be lit they night. The bonus of an enclosed back garden for our dog just made it even better.
The location is stunning, wonderfully rural but all within a 15 minute drive of
Penrith if you decide you need some civilisation.
We stayed for four nights and our only criticism was that we had to leave. Can't wait to go back again.
We've just come back from a 4 day stay at Glassonby Old Hall. The house is immaculately presented and the little treats left for us were lovely! The owners have thought about every little need of the guests and have catered for it all. The suggestions about walks/pubs and takeaways were very useful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon!
Another fabulous stay with Th Rowley Estates. Glassonby Old Hall is a wonderful place to stay. Full of character and with a few surprises, makes it an exceptional holiday home where you can relax with your family and four legged friends within luxury surroundings. Looking forward to our next stay.
The accommodation is in a beautiful rural setting 20 minutes from Penrith and 30 minutes from Ullswater.
On arrival the house is immaculately presented and the five star ambience is echoed by a luxury welcome pack of essentials: coffee, tea, butter, sugar, fruit, fruit-juice, milk, cereal etc; and special treats, we got shortbread biscuits, champagne, locally made toffees and fudge to name just some of the items.
The accommodation itself is spectacular, comfortable for a large party, such as ours, of up to eight adults, there are high levels of finish in all the rooms and the kitchen is well equipped. The rooms are centrally heated and warm and the two large open wood burning stoves have an endless supply of logs.
Every eventuality is catered for making the stay seamless and trouble free.
The area is one of outstanding natural beauty with an abundance of local walks. The accommodation is equipped with information for local walks and hikes of different grades and lots of information about the Lake District's amenities.
Within a few minutes drive there are local mini-markets should you run out of essentials, welcoming pubs and a petrol station.
Our lasting impression is that this was superb accommodation, warm and comfortable in a beautiful setting with all your needs catered for.
What can I say we arrived to a wonderfully clean and cosy hall set in the beautiful countryside just outside Penrith. The weather providing frosty mornings and bright blue skies, ideal for walking alongside the river exploring the caves and local historical attractions.
Hall facilities were outstanding, decorated as new with little touches that made it feel like home. Beds clean and cotton linen fab. Bathrooms huge and modern.
Both the Jilly and Christine could not be more professional or helpful. Catering through Lynn Hilditch was perfect for the occasion and very well priced.
Both Jenny and elk cottages gave great flexibility for the group with facilities as good as the main hall, hampers for all WOW lovely touch.
I cannot rate the hall high enough and will definitely be booking other locations with the Rowley Estates.
