We had a large party (nearly 30 people, a mix of adults and children) and the Big White House was absolutely ideal accommodation for us all. The rooms are all quite basic but clean and the house has a lot of character. It is in a quiet location but it very handy for a lot of the sites in the Lakes. The House itself was very well equipped and everyone who attended agreed that this was the best accommodation of this type that we had been to. We would definitely return and would look to attend during the summer months so we could make use of the garden area. We also hired a hot tub for the children and this was also very good. I think that the Big White House is excellent value for money and compares very favourably with hotels, B&B's or caravans that are available in the area.
We took a group of adult students to the house for a residential weekend. The house had plenty of space for everyone and it was amazing to all sit at the same table to eat. The kitchen is well stocked with large pans, plates, mugs etc so made cooking and eating a pleasure. I would definitely recommend it to a friend or to other tutors looking for somewhere quiet to go for a residential
The Big White House was the perfect accommodation for our family get together. It was very clean, well laid out and had lots of dishes, glasses and cutlery to accommodate our party of 20. It's central location is great for getting out and about, the enclosed large garden makes it perfect if you have young children or dogs. We will certainly consider staying again.
The house is huge, and I don't think that the pictures do it justice! We booked this place for the week and I think I speak for us all when I say we had a really good time. I've just checked out of rehab and thought it was time to write a review haha, as a week is a really long time for a stag party! The house is situated around 12 miles away from Workington, which when we got there on Tuesday we were informed by the nice young lady at the bowling alley that "everything decent to do in town is closed until Thursday". So we went to the nearest Tesco for supplies and made our own entertainment back at the house.
On the Saturday we had a walk along to the next village which was around a 15 min walk. There are a couple of pubs which we tried. The Masons Arms had very nice, reasonably priced food and was quite a quiet place...until we arrived and about 10 mins later a hen party from Newcastle arrived which made things interesting for the next hour or so and defiantly livened the place up.
All in all, a great house in a great location and would recommend both this house and the pubs down the road!
The big White House is an excellent house for large gatherings.. Plenty of ensuite rooms and sitting rooms make this an ideal base for a family get together
