This is a real find! The property itself is ultra luxurious with enough space for our family to relax in.
8 of us stayed in the hall, 4 in Elk Cottage next door but we spent all but bedtimes together and there was enough room for everyone.
The website is very full with videos of every room but in reality it is much more impressive. The whole place is very tastefully decorated and incredibly well equipped, even down to the barbeque tools.
We loved the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside. A real contrast to the one day we ventured into the Lakes. The children enjoyed the park nearby and the teatime visit from the cows across the road.
The Featherston Arms was popular with everyone, super food and a beer garden for the kids to play in. We went there often!
We also went to the bakery at Melmerby, a good choice of breads nice gift shop and coffee shop.
We had a morning in Penrith, busy but a nice change.
We did a few walks round the area, all well documented on the website.
We had a great holiday!
Directions were good - we found it no problem. The welcome hamper was very useful and high quality. The house itself definitely has wow factor. The younger members of the three generations loved the snooker table.
Comfortable, within easy reach of Carlisle and the Lake District, it is fully deserving of its five star rating.
We chose as a family Glassonby Old Hall to celebrate our sons 30th birthday as it was in the ideal location for all of our grown up children to meet with partners and as soon as we arrived we knew it was the perfect choice.
5 star it definitely is, from the lovely hamper to welcome welcome us on arrival which was a fabulous touch and much appreciated to the excellent decor of the halls rooms were all to the highest of standards.
Thank you Christine and Jilly for accommodating all our requirements and making our stay so special .
We will definitely be booking again with you.
We really enjoyed our stay at Glassonby Hall. The accommodation is beautiful. The walk recommended in the welcome brochure is well worth it. Highly recommend the Crown Inn in the nearby village. The chef cooks amazing food! Would definitely like to return.
Booked her last November after deciding that no one needed more stuff for Christmas so it was better to buy us all the gift of time together. I looked through a lot of holiday homes and just kind of stumbled on Glassonby Old hall and I'm so glad we did.
Upon arrival the house was absolutely pristine, not a speck of dust to be found. The kitchen is better stocked than even our own at home and the bedrooms are wonderful and large. Both fires had even been set with wood to be lit they night. The bonus of an enclosed back garden for our dog just made it even better.
The location is stunning, wonderfully rural but all within a 15 minute drive of
Penrith if you decide you need some civilisation.
We stayed for four nights and our only criticism was that we had to leave. Can't wait to go back again.
