From arriving on the driveway our dreams came the property full justice.
Trip advisor reviews are all spot on.
The owners were very courteous and made a point of greeting us.
The facilities inside were excellent and as described.
Views from the bedrooms are stunning. We had a weeks holiday to remember, the locals were all very friendly and the bonus of having access to the local hotels health club just topped everything off.
We could not have found a better location to use as a base.
With easy access to the lakes, or over the border into Scotland or the beautiful
We definately will make a return visit and are already advising family & friends. Read more

Quiet, peaceful, lovely views and setting. Quite likely the most comfortable, pleasant and well set-up self-catering accomodation we've experienced in many years. So nice to come come "home" to at the end of a day of sight-seeing or walking.
Many thanks to the owners for making it available. Read more

this is our second stay at geltsdale and this experience was just as good if not better than the first.The owners are excellent the property is just out of this world as a chill out experience the fact you can use the leisure facilities at the crown only add to the experience. I would recommend this property to anybody looking for a relaxed and chilled holiday(where else do you eat breakfeast while watching deer graze outside your window).I know we will be back tomorrow if I could.

What a beautiful apartment in this house. We had a lovely 3 night stay at Geltsdale. The house is very well equipped with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. If I were to be really picky, I would mention the very noisy heating system (there must have been an air lock). It would also have been nice to have had a private part of the large garden for our use and to have had a view from the lounge! Other than that all my family enjoyed this home-from-home get away! Really do wish to return soon! I would highly recommend this house!
"Relaxing weekend in very comfortable accommodation in beautiful"

We were 3 couples meeting up for annual Lakes get together, and wanting to try a different area. We wanted 3 en suite bedrooms in a high quality property and found your website very easy to search for this. It was easy to book and the owners were very accommodating. We loved the comfortable accommodation and the very impressive location. It was ideal for us. We were able to enjoy walks from the property without having to take the car. Using the facilities at the Crown Hotel was an added bonus which we enjoyed very much. We were disappointed we couldnt stay longer and hope to return there again.

We chose Geltsdale as we have a small baby and wanted somewhere with space and somewhere we could walk and eat locally.
The home was very inviting and comfortable and had all the facilities we needed.
The location was excellent as a 5 minute walk took us into the village where there was an excellent restaurant and scenic walks were aplenty.
Minimum stay and check-in day vary by time of the year.
