We had an amazing time, only downfall was due to COVID our whole family didn’t get to experience it.

Hi Sharon, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm so pleased you had a wonderful time, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it? It's such a shame that some of your family had to miss out. I hope you can all get together for another break soon.

Our family spent a fantastic week at The Old Homestead. It was spotlessly clean, plenty of outdoor space for children of all ages to play. We liked the fact that all the bedrooms were en suite. The only negative thing I would say is that the kitchen could do with a few more baking trays and dishes but having said that we managed ok.

The Old Homestead is a wonderful property located in a stunning area in north-west Lakeland in the the Lorton Valley with views down Buttermere and the to the surrounding fells. Zen and Jayne would get 20 out of 10 as hosts if there were a rating! They did everything they could to make our stay a memorable and enjoyable one and we so hope we can return one day. The only reason we have marked the 'Comfort and Equipment' and VFM scores slightly down is because of the kitchen. It is small for a property that is very large can accommodate 25 people (we only had 11 using the ground floor) and we struggled a little. Ideally the kitchen would be larger, have a window and a little more large-scale cooking equipment, pots and pans and utensils. However, THIS IS BEING PICKY and these comments should not detract from the overall review and we would return yesterday and stay forever if we could! Old Homesteads is spotless, en-suite in every room is marvellous and the showers are probably the best you will find on planet earth! Thank you Zen and Jayne, you and your property helped in a huge way to make our wedding such a wonderfully memorable experience. Steve & Allison
