“Wonderful property in a stunning location”

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Charcoal House, which has to be the very best holiday home we have ever stayed in.

Everything about the house was perfect, so much attention to detail and as for the beds – so comfortable.

The location is so peaceful with fine walks nearby. Our highlight being the hike up the Old Man of Coniston and beyond.

We sampled many fine pubs all of which are a short drive away.

A thoroughly enjoyable week in the lakes, we will definitely be back to Charcoal House – Nick Baldwin, Uckfield, East Sussex

A wonderful stay at Charcoal House.

It is certainly the best holiday house we have ever stayed in. So many great memories in beautiful surroundings.

Our highlight was the views of our 10 mile hike over The Old Man of Coniston and beyond. Well worth the effort and achy feet.

Many thoughtful touches throughout the house which made our stay even better.

Our thanks to you for allowing us to charge our electric car. This made the whole holiday stress free. We will be back. – The Baldwins, East Sussex

The house has a lot of character and is very well appointed. We really appreciated the styling and the features and it was cool watching all the baby birds in the garden from the kitchen.

Access was very easy and it was great to be able to arrive at our leisure without the need to meet someone to hand over keys. It worked really well and the information inside is very comprehensive to assist finding things to do.

The biscuits were very welcome.

Really recommend the walk to the Red Lion pub where the landlord and staff are really friendly and helpful and have good beers and good pub food. I would like to have that pub at the end of my street.

Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a gorgeous and spacious house and lots of tranquillity in a beautiful part of the UK. – Tim Eady

What a terrific stay and home.

We were exceptionally lucky with the weather, enjoying Coniston water.

Had some great meals at The Red Lion. Recommend Treetop Nets, great for the kids.

A cold day meant visit to the aquarium (which was not great).

We love the house, loved the Aga and the kitchen scales are a nice touch – we baked some scones. Thanks Simon. – The Aulds, Woking

A beautiful place to celebrate a diamond wedding anniversary!

We have been very lucky with the weather and made good use of the pretty garden. We would have liked to have had more time to explore this part of the Lake District, hopefully we will be able to return.

Thank you. – Tom & Wilma Craig and friends, Skelmorlie

“Perfect Lake District Break”

Great weeks break in the fabulous lake district with Friends, scenery breath-taking, just goes to show what the UK has to offer.

The house was exactly described, very clean and a good size for 4 adults, 3 children and a dog (with The Nook) all the facilities you need, great location to explore the surrounding areas.

PS. recommend the Blacksmiths Arms in Broughton Mills as a great cosy pub with really good food. – Nick Smith

“Beautiful house, warm, welcoming, modern but with so much character. A real corker of a property!”

Thanks Simon, my family and I had a wonderful weekend stay at Charcoal House.

My husband loved taking early morning walks to Coniston Water and it was a fantastic base for exploring the Lake District.

The only problem we had was the house was so great, we didn’t want to leave! – Liz & Family

“Perfect for a family getaway!”

8 of us and our dog Harley stayed at Charcoal House for a week in January.

The house was super, very spacious with lovely furnishings, and everyone had a lovely break, even the Aga was a hit and produced an excellent Sunday lunch!

Even though the weather was snowy, we had no problem getting about, and took advantage of a number of Simon’s recommended walks which were right on the doorstep.

We also visited his recommended cafes and restaurants in Lowick Bridge, Greenodd and Ulverston, all of which were great.

All in all, the house is perfect for a family getaway and we will definitely look to book one of Simon’s properties for our January break next year – Peter Jones, Wrexham
