A brilliant home for large gatherings; reuniting with family and friends spending time in the sociable, large rooms. Bring two dogs along to holiday with you.

Your next big holiday is all about making memories, and this gem of a property is large enough for your entire group to spend quality time together at the heart of the Lake District National Park. Positioned within the quintessential village of Eskdale, this marvellous home sleeps 16 across eight bedrooms and has room to spare for the two canine companions in your life. Set out to explore on foot or by bike, meandering through countryside trails and tackling the sweeping fells of the Eskdale Valley. Your accommodation has plenty to entertain too with a games room and outside table tennis for a dose of healthy competition.

Studded against a superb backdrop of rolling hills, this charming property is impressive from the outset with its immaculate front lawn and welcoming exterior. Inside is chic, homely and inviting thanks to the simple country-cottage decor and roaring open fire in the lounge. Gather the troops and watch family films with snacks galore, switching to board games when the children get fidgety. There’s a farmhouse-style kitchen fit for a feast, complete with a traditional Belfast sink, electric Range cooker and a breakfast table for light meals best enjoyed after a coffee in the bright conservatory. For special mealtimes, the dining room aims to please with its huge table that seats 16. Sated from your meal and keen for entertainment, head outside to the enclosed garden to relax with a drink, taking turns on the outdoor table tennis table. The games barn is a great way to use up energy, or take a stroll through the garden to enjoy the pond and orchard. Back inside, the bedrooms can be found across the ground floor and the first floor, but there’s also a pretty twin room with a staircase leading to the final bedroom. All eight bedrooms share two generous bathrooms and a shower room. There’s a utility area under the stairs for taking care of your outdoor gear, plus ample parking for five cars.

The western reaches of the Lake District National Park are famed for their beauty and, for the adventure seekers amongst you, that’s bound to be excellent news. The towering heights of Scafell Pike are within 8.5 miles, but you’ll also have the secluded trails surrounding Wast Water (8 miles) to enjoy if you prefer gentle walks or a spot of wild swimming. A trip to Ravenglass is a must for riding the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway. The harbour, beach and selection of eateries are well worth perusing, especially if you wish to sample the top-notch local fare. Boot, 2 miles away, is home to the West Lakes Adventure Centre for thrill-seekers keen to try ghyll scrambling, climbing and kayaking.
