Property Reviews

a review about Dunnabeck in Grasmere
Dunnabeck
Grasmere, Grasmere/Rydal
This was our third visit to this house and frankly we would be unlikely to want to stay anywhere else in the area. Dunnabeck's location is second to none- you can do all the local sights ( Wordsworth) and lots of walks from the house around Grasmere and Rydal and then you are also perfectly positioned to drive out in all directions to other things- eg this time we went to Levens, Hampsfell and Cartmel, Wray, Buttermere, Castlerrig and Aira Force.Mr and Mrs Richards
a review about Low Melbecks Barn in Bassenthwaite
Low Melbecks Barn
Bassenthwaite, Keswick/North Lakes
This was the third time we stayed at Low Melbecks Barn and it's still as wonderful and immaculate as the first time round 6 years ago. A lovely welcome from the owners with homemade cake, wine, tea/coffee and other goodies. This place is paradise and we cannot wait to go back.Mrs Hepworth
