I would first say that our family gathering of 10 adults + 1 2week old really enjoyed the stay and the family time together.
The place was very nice and i would had given excellent all round if not for the one big problem, the TV is suffering from a poor damp issue that renders the room unusable due to the terrible musty smell.
The owners are aware of it and were using a de-humidifier to help with the problem, it's now december 13 so maybe now the problem is fully fixed.
The owners did come round on the first day to drop us off our logs for the dining room fire, the stereo was mibehaving, so the owner instantly went away and brought back a brand new one.
We found the owners to be polite and very helpful, they told us some nice places to visit and also eating houses.
The rooms were huge especially the 10 door wardrobe you could play hide and seek in.
The kitchen diner had everything you needed for a family to gather and cook.
Car parking was no problem, we easily got 3 cars around the back with room for a couple more.
It's in a quiet area close enough to the southern end of windermere.
We would stay again if the damp issue and musty smell was sorted.
Great family party place.

We booked Meathop Hall for a special occasion to be shared with family and friends who stayed in relays. The accommodation was excellent. Five bedrooms were great, the sixth with twin beds was small and stuffy. Ample bathrooms meant there were no queues. The kitchen and breakfast area were super, spilling over into the outside space. We had such good weatheer that we used the sitting room only in the late evenings but there would have been plenty of social space if it had been wet. There wer one or two items missing from the kitchen like pyrex basins - how can you whisk eggs without a basin? The hot weather however encouraged flies and fly deterrents would have been useful. Also with different people coming mid week it woiuld have nice to have been able to clean the bathrooms for them but there was no equipment. The owner responded quickly to our requests. The view was lovely and we all enjoyed sitting outside watching the sunset. The nearby restuarant/pub was conveniently located but only average in terms of it's food, We went once and did not return.
Lovely house with loads of character

We really enjoyed our stay in Meathop Hall. It is a beautiful house with lovely bedrooms which are all a good standard so there was no fighting about who got the best room! The location was really good, an unusual part of Cumbria which we hadn't explored. The hotel up the road is very good for food or just a drink.
