The Manor was beautiful, interesting, and perfect for our family size; full of character, ample space, and in a great location. Saying this, the place is in need of some major TLC - wallpaper peeling off, mould on walls, bathrooms in dire need of replacing and an upgrade, which could be done while keeping in-line with the decor - lack...

Our family spent a long weekend at this house. The house is old fashioned but we all loved it. Ample room for our family of 8 adults and 6 kids. 6 bathrooms made meant no problems for us all. The kitchen is a good size with a lovely table to seat everyone, the conservatory is nice with a BBQ outside...

The Manor House was an excellent location for a long weekend for several families who have children of varied ages. The holiday rental is very spacious with lots of original features.

About the neighborhood
Every Monday there is a farmer’s market which has been held in the town centre since 1530. Certainly worth a visit to soak up the atmosphere of this ancient town and get a feel for the farming community, agriculture being the main occupation for the people of Cumbria. Cumbria is known for its country fairs as well as its tradition of sheepdog trials, dry-stone walling contests, hound trailing, fell racing to mention but a few. Watch out for the Cumberland sausage (no they won’t jump up and attack!) - these sausages can measure up to 4 feet long and are baked whole, of course having previously been wrapped up in a coil! Also, look out for the Cumberland Ham, another traditional and popular Cumbrian delight.
