    “Overall the house was good.”

    The downstairs communal areas were excellent and easily accommodated our extended family of 24. The kitchen, dining, cosy lounge and games room were in constant use and felt very comfortable. The single large fridge we found to be in adequate for our group and in the Summer we're sure it would certainly not cope with drinks and food. The showers were pretty useless and believe there was only one that was ok out of the 7 on offer.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We really do appreciate it as it gives us the opportunity to continually improve our properties making the guests experience that more enjoyable. Valley View is an amazing property and we do try to make it home-from-home so guests have everything they need. I'm sorry to hear that you had issues with the showers. I've spoken to the out of hours team and this issue was not reported to them at the time otherwise the property managers would have came to assist in getting the showers working. It sounds like despite this you had a good time and how lovely for all 24 of you to be together in one house. Best Wishes Julie Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the charming town of Dalton-in-Furness, Cumbria, is this superbly appointed detached Victorian treasure of a dwelling, Valley View House. This property has been thoughtfully converted into a large holiday home for all types of guests wishing to explore all the delights of the Cumbrian countryside. The property benefits from a range of sitting rooms to unwind in after a long day of sightseeing, one which features an open coal fire, where you can unwind on the plush sofas with a cup of tea in hand, as your favourite show plays out on the TV. Continue through to the spacious kitchen, which has everything you could need to create your families’ favourite dishes, ready to enjoy in the large dining room. On warmer evenings, why not enjoy your meals in the expansive grounds, followed by a dip in the bubbling hot tub? After dinner, if you’re looking for a quiet space with a view, head through to the conservatory, escape to the living room with open fire, snug or take some time out I the games room, where you can challenge your loved ones to a game of table tennis, pool or a good selection of board games. The ground floor is also home to a beautiful bathroom with walk in shower, along with four bedrooms, two super-king, one double and a twin. Follow the stairs up to the first floor, where you’ll find seven further beautifully decorated bedrooms, an emporer size French-style bed with en-suite bathroom, one super-king-size with zip/link, three doubles, a family room with double and two singles, and one twin room - all of which have access to their own en-suite bathroom where you can freshen up in style! Three of the en-suites host a bath so you can have a long and relaxing soak to rejuvenate for the days ahead. While you're in the area, take advantage of your town centre location and visit Dalton-in-Furness’ selection of pubs, restaurants, and cafés for those evenings you don't fancy cooking. If you're an animal lover, you'll delight in visiting the South Lakes Safari Zoo which spans across 51-acres and is perfect for you and your little ones to enjoy a day trip to. You can explore this town's rich history at Dalton Castle, or venture further afield towards the medieval ruins of Furness Abbey. Dalton also has its own train station which can take you closer to the Lake District National Park and all its magnificent attractions. Make sure you travel towards Lake Windermere, popular for its vast amount of water sporting opportunities including sailing, fishing, and kayaking. If you're looking for more outdoor activities, Helvellyn and Scafell Pike are ideal for keen hikers, or enjoy some walks alongside any of its picturesque lakes. Literary lovers will delight in visiting Dove Cottage and The Wordsworth Museum, where the famous poet William Wordsworth once lived with his family and sister Dorothy and wrote many of his well-known poems. Valley View House is an excellent choice for a countryside retreat for a large group.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.

About the location

DALTON-IN-FURNESS

Ulverston 5 miles.

The ancient town of Dalton-in-Furness lies in a narrow valley on that part of the Furness Peninsula which extends deep into Morecambe Bay. Once the leading town of Furness, Dalton has a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. The architecture of the town includes some interesting buildings in and around the market place, as well as an elegant Victorian drinking fountain, the market cross and slabs of stone used for fish drying in the 19th century. The 14th-century pele tower, known as Dalton Castle, was originally a place of refuge for the monks of nearby Furness Abbey, an impressive sandstone ruin nestling in a peaceful wooded valley. Within easy reach of the town are the South Lakes Wild Animal Park, the world's only Laurel and Hardy museum at Ulverston and the Haventhwaite Steam Railway which runs to Lakeside, where you can board a steam train for Bowness or Ambleside. Just north of Dalton-in-Furness is the stunning Duddon Estuary and Duddon Valley, with Cartmel, Holker Hall and Grizedale Forest within easy reach. Situated on the edge of the Lake District National Park, and surrounded by mountains and beaches, this area is ideal for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers.
