Very impressed with the house, in fact it’s the best Rural Retreats house we have stayed in so far!

We had a great weekend. Lots of walking –even went on the Ullswater Steamer. We had the whole range of winter weather- wind, rain, sun & snow. Had a great meal at the Black Swan in Culgaith. Thank you.

Superb accommodation, Park House surpassed expectations! This attractive spacious house, with fabulous views and even room outside to kick a rugby ball gave us all time to chill and relax.  

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed visiting this part of the country and would highly recommend eating at the Black Swan Inn at Culgaith – the Baked Alaska was fantastic!

Wow this house is amazing! We’ve been up Crossfell, Catbells & High Street. It was great to have Robyn and Harvey to play with and Sally the dog as company.

We’ll certainly be back.

We came to relax in a luxurious and well equipped house in a peaceful and beautiful setting and that’s exactly what we got.  We loved the fresh flowers, the quality of the welcome hamper and the thoughtful provisions for the 5 month old twins.
