Ladstock Hall is a stunning Lake District home from home, standing in its own grounds with original features including open fires, leaded windows and oak panelling. A group of friends or 2 or 3 families will appreciate the attention to detail with this luxury property and the close proximity of Keswick with shops, bars, restaurants and attractions ensures there is plenty to do when you tire of soaking up the scenery in the garden.

Beautiful house, quirky and full of character but also really well equipped. Excellent kitchen with two ovens, baking equipment and great cookware. Large living areas with big comfy sofas. Good Wifi, didnt slow down even with 9 people attacking it at once. No signal in some bedrooms but strong downstairs and in rooms directly above the living room. Bedrooms comfortable and warm. Plenty of hot water and powerful showers. For atmosphere there are open fires in living room, dining room and kitchen.
Worst bit was the rain - but it gave us an excuse to settle down and play games.
Thank you for your review of your stay at Ladstock Hall.

It is not that easy to find accommodation for 10 when you're limited to the Keswick area but once we stumbled across this place we realised that miracles do happen! It's not that easy to find if you arrive in the dark but once there you are simply bowled over by the beauty and quality of the place. The kitchen is just superb, great for breakfast for 10 and a coffee and chat; the dining rooms provides ample accommodation for a wonderful family meal and a fine sound system; the lounge and the wood burning fire are ideal with Christmas décor the icing on the cake. The bedrooms are spacious and provide amazing views across the valley; the second floor is perfect for a family of 4 to be housed and separated as necessary. There are good walks from the back of the house into the Windlatter Forest which is beautiful. The cleaners were friendly and helpful too. There is only one negative and that's the towels - say no more! Read more

We had 3 generations in our group holidaying at Ladstock Hall & it met all our needs. The house is furnished to a very high standard & has everything you could want. The garden is lovely & peaceful so you can relax & unwind after a day out walking & exploring. Keswick is close by & has everything you could need with some great shops. A fantastic place we would definitely recommend & would love to stay again. Read more

Delightful location, spacious rooms , but,
Left on 06/20/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | Tony Dixon, Secretary, Rambler Group
As a group of ramblers (mostly retired but active) this property was ideally located. The booking arrangements were easy and straight forward with no hassle or problems, finding the property was easy and access and parking for the four cars in our party presented no difficulties. The reception rooms were delightful and kitchen facilities excellent for a large party. One of our members did suggest that not all pans / bowls need to cater for ten people and that a number of smaller recepticals might be helpful. We did have one major issue. The twin bedded room at the top (which now features in the photographs but as we booked whilst the house was being renovated did not at the time of our booking) does not accommodate two adults with any ease, the head room from one bed to a large sharp beam is insufficient. This room ought to be described as either for children or it should have a small double rather than single beds. With that one exception the property was brilliant, and best suites either families or groups of nine. Signed Tony Dixon, Secretary. Read more
