The location is wonderful and views are breathtaking. We were an extended family celebrating a special birthday and included children, babies and a dog, so the inside space, rooms both downstairs and upstairs were ideal. However these are the things that we noted let the stay down: the beds are past serviceable in some rooms and only passable in others: 4 slot toaster only works on 2 slots: Grill on second oven does not work so batch grilling and keeping food warm for cooked breakfast is an art to be acquired! Correcting those would make this an absolutely desirable place to stay for any large gathering.

With a party of 16, it was difficult to find any places that would accommodate us all in one house. We certainly got lucky with Ghyll Bank House. It was perfect for us, from the stunning location, the size of the property offering large bedrooms for all to the facilities available to us.

Mr & Mrs Beattie were lovely, calling to check all was OK with us during our stay (4 days). The cottage has a fabulous modern kitchen - well equipped, a very useful utility room, a spacious dining room with two large tables and plenty seating for all, a massive lounge area with views to die for and enough seating for all. Great bedrooms serviced by modern toilets and showers made this a superb holiday cottage. There are a few areas that looked a little tired against the newer modern areas but, as an old working farm house, it actually adds to the charm of this place. I can highly recommend Ghyll Bank House - For such a large party of people ranging from 86 yrs old to 16 yrs old, it proved to be the perfect stay for us.

Spent a brilliant week at ghyll bank house with extended family easily accommodating 14 of us, bathrooms redone since we last visited in 2015 made it much more user friendly. You get a fantastic view of the house from Hughill fell, which is walkable straight from the doorstep.

The sheets on the bed were not changed, there was hairs and crusty deposits, it was awful. The rest of the house was fine, parts have been updated(the kitchen and a bathroom are nice) but many of the bedrooms need attention.

What a great house for large parties. Lots of rooms and bathrooms and some with great views towards kentmere and morecombe bay.

Surrounded by farmland and sheep and a healthy walk into stavely this was a great option for us. We prefer a bit of peace and quiet and you may not find it nearer the centre of the Lake District.

Kitchen was large and well equipped though frying pans could be updated.

I would definitely return to this part of the lakes and this house.

A fabulous house for all the family to enjoy. Spacious, no queue for bathrooms! Children have freedom to run and enjoy outside grounds. Fabulous views. Easy access to all major attractions including boat and train rides. Suited the more energetic who actually climbed a mountain!

Car a must, not an easy walk to village shops and eating facilities.

An ideal place for a large group to stay. Very comfortable, an enormous amount of room including two kitchens, warm and well equipped, the most amazing views, perfect for walking the fells; within walking distance of Stavely ( and Wilfs restaurant!), friendly owners. Might be a good idea to bring games to play for a family and children - the Lake District weather! You will need to be mobile/active to make the most of this place. Basic store in the village and good supermarket in Windermere (Booths).
