“Wedding of our dreams!!!”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2015

There are no words to describe how amazing this property is. We stayed here in May 2015, for 3 days, with 18 relatives to celebrate our wedding. The typical British weather managed to hold off long enough for us to get married in the idyllic setting on the lawn underneath two magnificent trees. Jilly and her girls made sure that our stay was faultless with nothing being too much trouble. All of our guests were mesmerized by the venue each room lovingly restored with great thought and impeccable taste. The photos in each room to illustrate the scale of the restoration was a nice touch. A week to the day since we arrived, my only wish is that we could go back and do it all over again. Thank you to Jilly and Blencowe hall for making my wedding dreams come true.

Response from the manager Hi, Congratulations and thank you for taking your time to write this review. We are all so pleased that you your wedding dreams came true. We really appreciate your comments on the restoration of Blencowe Hall and glad it was the back drop for your celebrations. I have passed on your praises to Jilly and her team. Once again, congratulations and thank you. Best regards Charlie, Christine and Jilly

“Absolutely stunning and perfect location for a family celebration. Thank you”

Reviewed 31 May 2015

Blencowe Hall was a truly stunning and splendid destination to celebrate my sister's 50th birthday. The accommodation was absolutely perfect and has been renovated in such a beautiful way. Excellent communication from Christine and Jilly and lovely touches too - hamper etc. it is fantastically equipped and there was nothing that we didn't have. We are just deliberating when we can return! Huge thanks again for making our stay so fabulous. We can't recommend it highly enough.

Response from the manager Hi, Thank you for taking your time to write this review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your sister's 50th birthday celebrations at Blencowe Hall. It is in a stunning location and we really appreciate your comments on the renovation. If we can be of any help in the future then please get back in touch as we would love to welcome you all back as our guests. Best regards Christine, Charlie and Jilly

What can I say but it was just AMAZING!! We had the best time ever at Blencowe Hall with all our lovely family and friends celebrating my 50th Birthday and our 25th Wedding Anniversary. How could you possibly not enjoy yourself in this outstanding venue? The bedrooms and the sitting rooms were even more beautiful than we had remembered and our guests could not believe their luck in staying here. I have never seen so many jaws drop! We truly felt like royalty. Jilly and her team were of course marvellous - all the catering arrangements went according to plan and the food was simply scrummy especially the shepherds pie and fish pie and fruit crumble on the Friday night. The canoe treasure hunt I had organised at Glenridding was also hugely enjoyable and well worth recommending. Christine and Charlie, you should be so proud of what you have done in rescuing this and all the other uniquely fascinating buildings within your Estates. You have breathed life back into what were sad old crumbling ruins and in doing so have provided a wonderful experience for all of your guests. I can't think of a more perfect way to have celebrated these milestone events and I can't wait to find another reason to come back to Blencowe or indeed any of the other Rowley Estates' properties. Thanks again Christine, Charlie and Jilly!

Response from the manager Hi, Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We are so pleased that you and your guests had an amazing time celebrating your 50th birthday and your Silver Wedding Anniversary. We really do appreciate your comments about the restoration of Blencowe Hall and it is wonderful that the building is now full of life. We look forward to welcoming you all back again sometime in the future. Kind regards Charlie, Christine and Jilly.

“Amazing !!!!”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2015

I was extremely fortunate to be invited to spend a weekend a Blencowe Hall for a friends Silver Wedding celebration and all I can say is one word.......amazing !!! From the initial sighting of the hall as you drive along the road from Greystoke I was totally blown away The Hall itself has been beautifully refurbished and is a testament to the hard work and dedication from its current owners If you are expecting sleek modernist decor then this is NOT the place for you, however if you want fantastic comfort in an amazing building then it is most definitely for you I can't fault Blencowe Hall on any level and would highly recommend it as a fantastic venue for any special occasion and I feel very privileged to have been able to spend a memorable weekend there

Response from the manager Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write your 'amazing' review on Blencowe Hall and we are so glad you were 'blown away' and had such a memorable weekend celebrating with your friends. We find it very pleasing that you have appreciated our restoration and refurbishment on such an historic building. We would love the opportunity to welcome you back to Blencowe Hall or one at our other properties. Kind regards Christine, Charles and Jilly

“One amazing and luxurious place to stay!”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2015

We wanted to do something really special for our 25th wedding anniversary and we could not have chosen anything better! Blencowe Hall is beautiful - it's big enough to get lost in it and find a cosy corner to read/relax, the beds are AMAZING, so, so comfortable with superb linen sheets. Everything that you could want is there - they have thought of everything! The girls, Jilly, Trish and the others were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We had a truly memorable weekend and will be back for more. I can't tell you in words how absolutely brilliant it was - the whole party had an amazing time and the Hall is something else. We were truly "Rowley-d"!! You have got to go and experience Blencowe!

Response from the manager Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write such a glowing review. We are so glad you chose to celebrate your 25th wedding anniversary at Blencowe Hall and as you say it really is 'something else'. We will pass on your comments to Jilly and Trish. We are pleased that you had a memorable weekend and we would love to be able to welcome you and your guests back to The Rowley Estates in the future either at Blencowe Hall or at one of our other Halls or Cottages. Kind Regards Christine, Charles and Jilly.

“Magical Stay”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2015

It was a joint 50th birthday celebration with friends. What a unique and wonderful place. It was perfect and everyone absolutely loved it and felt welcomed and well looked after. Plenty of space ,so even though there were over 20 people staying, we didn't feel crammed in. Our own castle for 3 days. Can't get much better than that. Thank you so much Christine, Jilly and Trish for your hospitality.

Response from the manager Hi, We are so pleased that you all had a great 50th birthday celebration at Blencowe Hall. We are planning Charlie's 50th birthday party for this summer at one of our places and hoping that we have as much fun as you have had! We look forward to welcoming you all again soon and thank you again for choosing to come to Blencowe Hall for your break. With our best wishes, Christine, Charlie, Jilly, Trish and the team :)

Superb bedrooms, spacious and well-equipped communal rooms, top quality catering. This was our second short break at Blencowe and we've already rebooked our third visit for next year. We stayed with a large group of friends. But I would love to stay with a family group as well. I cannot recommend Blencowe Hall too highly.

Response from the manager Hi, Thank you again for your kind comments after your second stay at Blencowe Hall. We really appreciate your feedback, as will Jilly and her team ! Looking forward to welcoming you all back for your third visit. Kind regards, Christine, Charlie & Jilly

An amazing stay. The hall was everything you could wish for and more, spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming, nice cozy beds and bedding, beautiful bathrooms, large communal living area with plenty of space for large groups, well stocked kitchen with plenty of everything, dishes, appliances etc, set in lovely grounds with good secure parking, Booking again for 2015
