The most beautiful house in a lovely quiet location. It provided us with a gorgeous homely feel for 8 of us to enjoy and was a great base for enjoying the Lakes – Martin

Returning guest and as usual we had a fab time.

Charcoal House is so comfortable and always so clean on arrival. We always feel at home straight away.

We were blessed with lovely weather and company. We will be back.

Thank you to Simon and the team for running such a lovely holiday agency where you know you will be comfortable no matter what – Alison Graham, South Shields Tyne & Wear

This is a beautiful property. It is extremely well-equipped and furnished. All the furnishings are very good quality and the beds, sofas and chairs are very comfortable.

We found it very spacious for our family group of 8, ranging in age from 6 to 70.

The children made the most of the lovely garden area – Catherine

We felt at home the moment we arrived. Even better in reality than in the photos (which are good).

Lovely aga warmed kitchen. Delightful garden. Living room was a wow and so comfy. Beautiful views from the bedrooms.

Very quiet situation and near to so much.

Recommend the Manor House to have dinner and Swallows & Amazons cafe just up the road ((by car) to just hang out and take in the stunning views (and lunch).

Will definitely be telling my friends and family to stay at Charcoal House – Caroline Senior

“Stunning house and perfect family get together”

Beautiful house! So much space for us all to get together without being under each others’ feet.

Really well equipped and so spacious. Great communication with the owner who very promptly deal with a small problem.

Lots of great small touches like a games box and walking routes. Couldn’t fault it! – Kirsty Dunn

Hi Simon,

We had a fantastic time!

We got really lucky with the weather and did plenty of walking. I have the blisters to prove it lol.

By the way, that’s the best Aga we have ever used! Really accurate instructions and we had plenty of perfectly cooked eggs, casseroles and fajitas!

We hope to book again sometime in the future. I think this was our 11th holiday with you & we have had some very special memories so thank you. 🙏🏻

Kind regards

“Magical Christmas Stay”

I booked directly with Simon for the Beautiful Charcoal House to spend Christmas week with my family – 6 adults, 2 children and Bonnie our dog.

What a haven it was!! Spacious and x so comfortable.

I’m very particular and was so impressed by the highest standard of cleanliness – it was immaculate.

The festive touches were in place throughout and the beautiful Christmas tree in the spacious, luxurious upstairs lounge was so lovely.

Everything we needed was supplied to cook Christmas dinner – so well thought out.

I LOVED the AGA and am a convert!!

We all loved Charcoal House.

The weather was wet and windy but we still ventured out to the beautiful nearby lakes.

We will go back – no question.

Thank you Simon and team for all the informed information to make this Christmas stay so memorable and magical. This is a MUST!! – Sue Carter, Mauchline, Ayrshire, Scotland
