What a great place for a get together. Everyone enjoyed the log burner, being able to all sit and relax together and to top it off fabulous local scenery and walks.

Good for family stay

  • 4 of 5

First impressions great place to stay. Peaceful location. Plenty of room in property. Main living room beautifully converted with large log burner. Stayed long weekend in property. Some lovely walks around the hamlet of Brignall.

Large property which has heating throughout with log burner and underfloor heating in large living room area.

We were really warm the first night, heating didnt come on second night, so although log burner kept main room warm the rest of the building was really cold because its so big. Problem with log burner third night. But, staff came when a phone call was made and saw to heating, but we couldnt use the fire.Never mind.

Property looked beautiful on first impressions, but, after plenty of visitors, certain places require a little TLC. Bit of paint on walls here and there. The wall next to oven all splashed in grease. Our ensuite showerhead needed changing. Looked quite dirty. Overall great place for large group to stay, just a bit of attention to certain areas required.
