We stayed over New Year with extended family. It was VERY expensive. With two lounges and a dining room for 12, it suited us well although we struggled to cook with only one oven and three hob rings. The house was very clean, with high quality bed linen but no towels. The house is in a great location for walking and has lovely views over Ennerdale Water and the surrounding hills. There are no amenities nearby with the nearest pub being an hour's walk. Be aware that the four bedrooms on the first floor share only one bathroom (although there is an emergency toilet in the utility room off the kitchen). The house is warm but the instant water & heating boiler is located IN one of the twin-bedded rooms which disturbs the guests' sleep. There was no mobile signal for any of our phone providers. Wi-fi is provided but do not expect it to be fast.

Hi Al, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Routen House. It's the perfect place to get away from it all isn't it? The location is simply stunning! I hope you had lots of fun exploring. Here's to the next Lakes adventure!

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay here, Ami. Ennerdale has so much to offer, hasn't it! I hope you all managed some of the walks from the door as well as exploring the grounds! Hope to see you in the Lakes again soon.

Beautiful location in quiet wild valley compared to rest of Lakes. Walks from the door, and lovely views from the house of the hills and Lake nearby. House has comfy beds and most things you need - few tips - scissors and more baking trays for kitchen would be useful, better dryer as really doesn't work /for large parties to dry washing at all well, showers aren't great either for large parties as if using one the water pressure goes on others. Would recommend highly for location and value for money overall.
