Well-equipped kitchen, clean bedrooms and bathrooms and good communal spaces (though it should be noted that there were only 6 of us)."

On Tuesday, 07 Dec 2021
"We recently booked Waverley for a family Birthday. We have a large extended family, so what better way than to celebrate all together on a fresh autumnal weekend in the run-up to Christmas? The house is great for large families or groups, with ample-sized bedrooms and multiple bathrooms. It’s very practical with a robust kitchen, large dining table, lounge area, open fires, onsite parking, and amenities for dogs to stay. What we particularly enjoyed was the close proximity to a clean, child-friendly park (literally across the road), the 5-minute walk down to the picturesque Lake and not to mention, the lovely local bars, restaurants, and shops within walking distance. It’s also a cyclable distance to Grizedale forest. However, sadly a few trees had fallen onto the trails, so it was closed at the time of our visit. We headed to the Christmas markets at Hawkshead instead. I would definitely recommend Waverley for large groups looking for a special place to make memories in Coniston."
