Beautiful house, beautiful location, breath taking views! Routen House is very spacious and well equipped. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need (even a bread maker!). Very comfortable beds in all bedrooms. Central heating kept us warm & toasty whilst it was snowing outside. The only downside to our stay was that the house telephone & Wi-Fi were not working, so we were completely cut off. ( I didn't mind so much but it was an absolute nightmare for our teenage sons! ) A wonderful break away was had by all, (except our boys!)
I will most definitely be booking another stay as soon as possible.

Hi Marie, thank you for taking the time to write a review. It sounds like you had a wonderful time at Routen House. It's a lovely spacious property isn't it? And the views are stunning!
I'm sorry that the telephone and Wi-Fi weren't working during your stay, I can imagine that didn't go down well with your sons! I hope they managed to enjoy themselves a little bit. Come back soon, you can be sure of a warm welcome.

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.
