“Very special property in fabulous location”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The seven of us all truly loved Tarn House. Loads of space. Gorgeous garden with stunning views. Very well equipped kitchen. Super bathrooms. Loved having the wood burner on in the evenings and having more than enough eating and sofa space for us to all be together. Close to local amenities but not too close to feel "Bowness" touristy. Loughrigg Tarn really is five minutes walk and great for swimming and picnics. The lovely Langdales are ten minutes drive. We climbed Loughrigg straight from the house. Keswick is about forty minutes away. This really is a very special house and we were terribly sad to leave. Hope very much to return in the not too distant future.

“Well-equipped Spacious House”
Reviewed 3 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lovely house for a large group. All rooms are large. It is well-equipped even having lots of toys for our 1 and 3 year-olds. The garden is lovely facing west and having a super view. NB there are lots of steps up to the garden. The location is super. Lots of walks from the house including to Loughrigg Tarn and Fell

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 17 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Just returned from a short break at Tarn House. Lovely, clean, spacious accommodation. Kitchen very well equipped. Flowers and welcome pack on arrival which were appreciated.
Ideal location for some beautiful walks. A few minutes walk from Loughrigg Tarn and its beautiful views.
Would definitely stay there again.

“Exceptional Stay”

We stayed at Tarnhouse this weekend and couldn’t go without writing a review. ‘Spectacular’ is how I can sum it up in one word. The moment you step through the front door you felt at home. Flowers and biscuits on arrival as well as little extras like milk and tea bags and logs for the large fire in the living room to get you going. Well equipped for all ages from books, toys, highchairs to dvd’s and board games. Everything thought of. Bedrooms were all large plenty of space in each even after accommodating a chest of drawers and a wardrobe. Bathrooms on both floors are large and lovely to have a soak in the deep baths. The cottage throughout was beautifully furnished and not a utensil not thought of in the kitchen. We were a family of 9 ranging from 62 years old to down to 2 years old and not one of us got bored in this gorgeous place. Everything was in a stone throw away also a small walk to the local pub for some delightful local pub grub and Ambleside itself only a 5 minute car journey. We were celebrating my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary and couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. We will certainly be back in the summer months to enjoy the garden and views. We had snow!! Thank you so much.
