Left on 04/21/2013 for a stay in March 2013 | Ten Thompsons on Tour
A very well equipped property which comfortably catered for our party of 10 with ages ranging from 4-71 years. The owners who live next door were very friendly. There are lovely views and very pleasant walks in the vicinity with Kendal and the southern Lakes a short drive away. The children's play area was very well used - fortunately because we had good weather we didn't need to make full use of the games room but this would have been a great asset if the weather had been unkind.
We had a very enjoyable week and would definitely recommend this property.
Excellent Christmas Family Break

The house was ideal for the family which included young children with their parents, and grandparents. Lots of room for the children to crawl and run around, and a comfortable lounge for the older ones to relax in. The games rooms were well equiped and the children enjoyed the outdoor swings and slide, although the weather did curtail outdoor play a bit (but it was December after all). Some enjoyed a ramble up Farleton Fell behind the house, and the amazing views over the bay to the Lakes, and some went down the canal to the local cafe and pub. Kirkby Lonsdale is a good spot for a bit of shopping and a coffee break, and only about 15 minutes away in the car.
The house is a quiet location despite being a short hop to the motorway.
Our hosts were always helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
A great holiday, and we would like to go back another year.
