From day one the service of the hosts was excellent. The buildings offer many inter changeable styles of accomadation. Very clean roomy and comfortable. Used as a base for the Lake District, not as close as some places but the town of Kendal has everything you need and the old renovated buildings make up for the short drive to the lakes. Very peaceful as it is surrounded by farms and down a country lane. Need a car. A history slide night of the reconstruction with the hosts in their bar is recommended. Read more

From the second you drive into the estate it feels so wonderful and secluded.
The estate just opens up in front of you as you near the buildings and you realise that it is going to be great.
On entering the Bake House we realised that it was so much better than we had expected (which usually isnt the case after seeing pictures on the internet).
The quality of the rooms, furniture, crockery, bed linen etc were top class.
No money has been spared in making this place amazing.
The owners gave us a tour of their incredible achievement in these buildings, including the stunning bar area, wonderful grounds and state of the art technology in their 'green credentials'
I was almost hesitant in giving this review as from a very selfish point of view, I dont want anyone to know about it so that when i want to return, it will always be available for me.
Amazing. I will return.
