What a wonderful cottage, perfectly appointed with everything we could possibly need and more!

Loved the views from the balcony and walks directly across the doorstep – The Damant Family

Thanks for a lovely stay!

The cottage was great for us and a lovely cosy spot to rest and relax.

We will definitely be recommending it to friends and family. – The Holdings, stayed with the Damart family (above)

This was a family break and this was the perfect venue for the whole family to do things at their own pace from me down to my Granddaughter aged one and two dogs.

They had some great days out but had equal fun on their return to Charcoal House.

Great family cooked meals in the Aga. And then the retiring to the lounge for evening drinking and watching by the log burner.

The facilities were fantastic, we’d definitely come again 10/10 – The Simmons Family

The weather was so wonderful, only half a day of rain. The Italian member of our group was very impressed. No need to use the wood burning stove.

We really enjoyed our walk up the Old Man of Coniston and the view of him from the balcony is wonderful. The dogs have a great time, lovely walks over Bethecar Moor and Blawith Common.

Beautiful rooms in a very cosy house. We mastered the Aga during our stay and found it very useful for drying our socks on after a boggy walk.

We can’t wait to come back and explore more – The Lloyd Family

17th March, 2017

The perfect house for our fabulous family get together.

We loved the location and property and were very lucky with the weather!

Thank you for thinking of everything that makes a stay so homely, comfortable and special.

Each room was well appointed and stylish.

We look forward to returning soon – Sally, Toby and Grandies

5 of 5 stars Review on Trip Advisor

We recently stayed at Charcoal house and cannot recommend it highly enough.

We regularly take a cottage break, at least five times a year. Charcoal House is superbly equipped, everything you could hope for in a home from home to provide a truly relaxing break.

The downstairs kitchen, dinner and snug makes an excellent family space and the lounge, upstairs, overlooking the mountains is fantastic and very relaxing, especially with the log burner.

We have stayed in many places that advertise themselves as luxury cottages and the standard at Charcoal House is far superior to any we have stayed in before and excellent value for money. There is even had a Nutri Ninja and were able to enjoy a fantastic range of healthy shakes each morning with brunch.

We could have happily stayed for longer!

Simon was fantastic to deal with and made the booking process very easy. We will definitely look to return to one of his other four or five star properties – Sarah Lennox

Thank you so much for a glorious few days here at Charcoal House.

From the minute we stepped foot inside this beautiful location we knew it was going to be a special place.

The cleanliness is 2nd to none and the house is furnished to an exceedingly high standard with views to die for. The location is superb too.

Simon couldn’t have done enough for us and we are already planning our next trip here in spring time. Many thanks – The Brooksy’s, Liverpool

This venue was amazing for a relaxing tranquil weekend. Lazy mornings, long soak in the bath, walking, pub meals and real fires 🔥 – Catherine

“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
