    " ! However once this was sorted I couldn't fault it "
    Mrs Walker ‐ 1 Mar 2019
    "Would recommend to families as there is plenty of room and I am sure children will love the attic bedrooms.The bathrooms and bedrooms are beautifully styled and the views from the windows are over lush countryside. The pub is a few strides away where we enjoyed good meals; suggest booking before travelling as it gets busy at the weekend. The coastline has lots of lovely little beaches and walks, and the nearest at Silecroft has a friendly beach café; our favourite treat was an ice cream and a ..."

    "The location was ideal for accessing the lakes and also close to the beach. We had a lovely holiday."

    "The whole family loved the farmhouse and its quirkiness."

    "The photos on the website didn't do it justice! It was a very comfortable 'cottage' and had everything which we needed. It is set in a beautiful part of the country, and about 20 minutes' walk from a lovely deserted beach - shhh - don't tell anyone!!"

    "A delightful old farm house full of character and ideal for exploring cumbria. A welcome pack would have been nice to arrive to after a very long journey but instead had to go out again to get basic things such as tea! Every house we have been to include a welcome pack ie. .milk, tea, biscuits. . including a few basic cleaning things..very disappointed considering the price of the house. Bins outside were overflowing and settee in sitting room could do with replacing. Shame that the local pub was closed down and the walk to the beach was unsuitable for myself and my scooter. .would have been nice to been informed of these on booking. But overall a good week!"
    Mrs Rachel Pells, Colchester, Essex
    "This is an absolutely, amazing place in a great location. The house was beautiful. We would definitely recommend staying here. "
    Mrs Victoria Daley, Thornton-Cleveleys, Lancashire
    "Overall this property was a delight to stay in, it was really comfortable with excellent facilities. To be honest I could have stayed forever. Just my type of home. All the Daley's had a wonderful stay and we will be booking again that's for sure."

There was a little blip in terms of getting the keys when we arrived, but this was soon resolved. The house is nicely decorated and the bedrooms are very comfortable. We stayed with our extended family (aged from 3 months to 66 years) for my husband's 40th birthday and everyone had a great time. Kirksanton itself is lovely - the beach is very close and there is a good local pub that serves excellent steaks. We will definitely return!"
