“Just wanted to say how sad we all were to leave this morning and head home. I can categorically say that the few teething problems did not mar a fantastic week away. We managed to do everything we wanted to do and the house was perfect, meeting all our requirements.  We didn’t want to eat out so we really appreciated the kitchen and dining room and the kids loved the outside spaces and the basement which was a blessing for us as well as they kept disappearing requiring very little input from us!”


A luxury, long-weekend in the Lake District and definitely to be repeated. Birkdale House is an absolute delight – comfortable, elegant and spacious. Perfect for a long weekend with friends and family.

If you have never been to the Lake District before and want to get away from it all with a group of friends or family, this place is the epitome of a small lakes estate. It provides great comfort and historic views in a totally private peaceful place, a stone’s throw from the Windermere action

We loved the property. It exceeded our expectations. The house was spotless and the position couldn’t have been better.
