“Perfect base for exploring”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

My partner and I have just come back after spending a long weekend in the bungalow at Ghyll Bank. The piece and quiet we found there was very welcome and inspires us to return for a longer stay in the very near future. We had our dog with us and I'm convinced he enjoyed it just as much as we did. The views of the fells are breathtaking and most memorable.
The owners gave us clear and concise directions to the bungalow and made sure it was nice and warm for our arrival, they even tried to catch us twice to ensure we were ok but unfortunately on this occasion we didn't meet.
Ample parking space, and fuel for the woodburner provided.
Thank you Mr & Mrs B.

Wow! Thank you so much for this fantastic feedback! We couldn't be happier that yourselves, and of course your dog, had such a lovely holiday. We hope that you do join us again for another holiday, and hopefully for longer next time!

“Loved it, can't wait to go back.”
Reviewed 21 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Just spent Christmas at the bungalow, the views of the fells are fantastic. The bungalow is well fitted out with everything you need including a log store for the fire. the location is ideal for exploring the lakes, Windermere is about 5mls away. The owners called to see us on the first night just to make sure eveything was ok. We will definateley be returning, as the bungalow is located on the fells the walks & views are fantastic.

“For older people communication is a serious problem if problems occur.”

Ghyll Bank Bungalow was unsuitable for us because none of 3 mobile phones could get coverage and on our first night while lighting remained available, power ceased to work, so WiFi ceased too. That is not tenable for older people, even though we were and are in good health. The owner seemed more interested in rent than service, as towels were not provided, yet bed linen was and our phone discussion after driving in to Stavely felt dismissive. We bought towels in Kendall. We left next day and forewent any refund.
