Large dog friendly holiday house sleeping 26 with a cinema room for family and friend group special occasions in Eskdale

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

This converted former hotel has been sympathetically converted into 12 bedrooms, most with en suite facilities, 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 and super-fast fibre 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. We also have a large screen Cinema that seats 26 - ideal for family gatherings: Sky Sports, Apple TV, DVD player, you name it, it can probably get it.
