Reviews at a Glance

Great place for a large group of people to visit. The house is beautiful and the photos do not do it justice. 8 bedrooms (I think, we kept getting lost in the house!), tv room with the best huge sofa's I've ever sat on, snug, pool room, bar, kitchen, food storage area/preparation and huge dining room with two large tables. We hired a hot tub which was amazing and did archery which was a hit with everyone. Each bedroom had a shower and toilet. There are 3 dishwashers and all the utensils you will ever need. I cannot recommend the Big Pink House highly enough. [READ MORE]

22 girls have just returned from a fabulous hen weekend at the big pink house. It was great, very well equipped with everything we need and more. Beautiful house and surroundings loved the pool room and bar. Your recommendation for the Cumbria hot tub hire company was excellent too. Keep up the good work and we will return very soon [READ MORE]
