- 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.
