Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Stanley House, The Lake District, Cumbria, sleeps 26 in 12 bedrooms.

This converted former hostel has been sympathetically converted into 12 en suite bedrooms, with stunning views either of the fells to the north or the gardens, rivers and fells to the south.

Stanley House is perfect for gatherings of family and friends, for special occasions and celebrations, or as a base for a wide range of outdoor activities.

All rooms are very comfortably furnished to a high standard and include flat screen TVs with DVD players (there is a DVD library for those wetter or lazier days) and WiFi for those that cannot be away from it all. All the bathrooms have bath and shower.

On the ground floor there are two large sitting rooms, one with a cosy wood burning stove and doughy sofas to laze on, the other equally as comfortable and with the added large screen TV with Playstation hooked-up to it to entertain the children (of whatever age). We also have a large screen Cinema room.

Breakfast is either served to you, or you can totally self cater - in a dining room overlooking the extensive gardens with the confluence of the River Esk and Whillan Beck.

There are endless walks straight from the door - river, flat or hilly, depending on the level of activity require. Plus, we have the Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway on our doorstep (literally!).

We are surrounded by 5 fantastic Inns, all serving excellent food and award winning real ale; none of them further than a 5 minute drive, and two of them within a 10 minute walk.
