Very nice larger property with a great pub close by. We had relatives and friends coming for my wife's birthday celebration, and everyone was impressed. Be prepared with food if you're cooking at Winder Hall, as the nearest supermarket is a few miles away in Cockermouth.
We would go back again without hesitation!

Hello Mark, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It's a fantastic cottage for a big get together, isn't it? Birthday breaks are the best! It's always a bonus having a pub close by on holiday, be it for a drink or some delicious pub grub. I'm thrilled you had a great time and I hope you will come back and visit us very soon!

We really enjoyed our family celebration & holiday at historic Winder Hall. The house is full of character but comfortable & homely too. The setting & grounds are wonderful & Lorton is a friendly little village with a great village shop (serving lovely coffee & cake) & a great pub almost at the end of the drive (great food & friendly atmosphere). The heating works efficiently & you can boost it on an extra hour if staying up late by pressing a button. The open fires made it cosier on cold January evenings & we were able to buy extra bags of wood from the caretaker. The large, elegant dining room made an excellent setting for a celebratory family dinner & the kitchen is well-equipped, as well as being warm & cosy for family breakfasts. The hot tub & sauna room worked well & made the break even more special: a real treat! We did have a couple of issues with the plumbing but these were dealt with quickly & effectively by the caretaker & plumber who knew the property well & didn’t affect our holiday. All in all, a wonderful experience was had by all!
