We went with a party of 17 to Esk View - 8 adults and 9 children, ranging from 2-17. The house accommodated us all comfortably. The long lounge was great for movies and games and enabled two separate activities to take place simultaneously. The array of games and puzzles were much enjoyed. The large dining room enabled us all to gather for dinner, which was very sociable. The kitchen was a little small but manageable. We enjoyed sitting outside at the table. The view across Eskdale was absolutely magnificent, with all its changing moods.
We had two complete days without needing to use the cars. On one day, we took the Eskdale to Ravenglass railway to Muncaster Mill and walked over to Muncaster Hall. On another day, some of us walked up the valley to the Roman Fort in Hardknott pass and others swam in the river.
Overall, we had a super time and would definitely recommend Esk View as a holiday base for a large group.

Hi Frances, thank you for taking the time to write a review. It sounds like you had a wonderful holiday! It's the perfect place for a get together with family or friends isn't it? The location is stunning, ideal for heading out for some good walks. And the cottage is lovely and cosy to come home to after a day out exploring.
I hope you can come back for some more adventures in the Lakes soon.

Perfect position,somewhat dated but ideal for large families or groups. The previous owner is my cousin so I know the area, location, house,etc very well.
Unfortunately the house required a thorough cleaning, it was dirty, grimy and to be quite honest just filthy.
The cleaners turned up as we were leaving ,1030hrs, a two person team ,man and wife. No wonder it is as it is !
It is impossible to.
Change 16 beds
Clean 16 rooms
Clean hall, stairs,landings ,kitchen, lounge ,toilets and bathrooms in the hours of 1030 to1630hrs
Every year the owners should have at least 2 weeks where the house is blitzed top to bottom,this is clearly not the case.
For the cost of a weeks accommodation I at least expect it to be clean!!!

Perfect setting, lovely holiday.
Cleanliness of house was much better than 2 years ago but still a little hit and miss. That said it’s a perfect place for a walkers holiday with plenty of space for muddy boots and coats.

Hi Emily, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm glad you enyoyed your break, the location is perfect for getting out for some good walks isn't it?
I'm sorry to hear that some of the cleanliness wasn't up to scratch. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, I'll make sure I address it with the cleaner.
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
