Semi-detached house built 2008 in the pretty Cumbrian village of Holme. Great for the Lake District, but also for the Yorkshire Dales, and very local to Arnside & Silverdale AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) & Leighton Moss RSPB bird reserve.
You will be on your own in our house, which is our second home. We bought in this location because not only is it handy for the Lake District and other beauty spots, it's also very easy to get to, with quick access to and from the M6. There is a bus from the village into the Lake District, but as you need to bring your own bed linen and towels (please see 'Other Things to Note' below!), a car is fairly essential.
You have the whole house and garden. Space on the front drive to park your car, then downstairs there is an entrance hall, downstairs toilet, open plan kitchen/dining room with patio doors, and lounge with patio doors. Sunny garden. Upstairs Bedroom 1 has a double bed and an ensuite bathroom with shower. Bedroom 2 has two twin beds. Bedroom 3 has one single bed. House bathroom with bath.
We have a large selection of guide books, walking books and maps on our bookcase which you are welcome to use.
Bikes can be locked away in our garage.
Interaction with guests
You are quite likely not to see us unless your visit coincides with us preparing for your arrival. We make a point of always being easily accessible by phone though while you're our guests, and we always message by phone during your stay to see how you're getting on!
Other things to note
Our price is fantastic for a whole house for a family on a self-catering basis in this sought after area, and here's how we can do it.......!
We don't live locally and so we don't provide bed linen or towels - please bring your own. We provide duvet inners and pillow inners, but you need to bring bottom sheets and pillowcases, and either duvet covers or sleeping bags. Sizes to fit the double and single beds of ours you'll be using.
We can usually sort out bed linen and towels for international visitors - ask me.
Other consequences of us not living locally are that we ask you to help us by leaving it clean and tidy when you go, and very very occasionally we might have to ask you to take your rubbish to the recycling centre - it's just on the way back to the M6. But usually we can do that.
Dogs - We have dogs who shed hairs, and it is impossible to remove every last one! There will be a few dog hairs around downstairs, but this is not a reflection on the general cleanliness of the house (see Cleanliness rating below). If this would cause you a problem, this is not the property for you. We like dogs and are willing to consider taking one well behaved dog, please message me to ask if they can be accommodated.
As long as there's not a same day changeover (unlikely), you can come any time after 10am on arrival day and stay as late as 7pm on leaving day, which gives you time to do an activity on both those days. Up to two more days holiday for the same number of nights!
The house is semi-detached and our neighbours are quiet. Please respect their quiet life.
No smoking, sorry.
We are not looking for bookings from groups of young people, just couples and families. Regrettably, following several incidents of damage by children, we are no longer accepting bookings where a child is aged under 8.
We just want you to have a wonderful time while taking good care of our home, so not too many rules, it's your well earned break!!
