Testimonials for Hause Hall, Cruik Barn & The Stables

Beautiful location. Property was very well equipped. Hamper on arrival was filled with local produce. Would highly recommend a stay here.


Hause hall is in the most beautiful & rather remote location in the Lakes! We love Ullswater & it was a great spot for quiet walks. Christine made us up the most spectacular hamper for our arrival! A kind & thoughtful Christmas treat. You would expect some small bits but it was a huge goodie basket & we’ve even brought some of it home with us! She was also kind enough to let us arrive earlier than check in & allowed my mum who has ME (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) to stay an hr after the usual check out time which was really kind. The house is incredibly well equipped & has things you would find in a home but rarely in an air bnb!! It was fantastic to have so many pots & pans, two dishwashers & electric oven with gas hob in addition to the Aga which was great when cooking for more than 10 people on Christmas Day. We had a wonderful time & we will remember our time at Martindale & talk about it fondly for many years to come! Thank you for making my son’s first Christmas a special one! X


This was our second stay at a Rowley Estates property. Both times the experience was fantastic. The properties are simply magical, extremely well supplied, they think of everything. Christine is so helpful, you feel like you are special, not simply a run of the mill guest as at some rentals. We had several family members join us, all were awed by Hause Hall , ( and previously by Melmerby Hall) and by Christine. We have stayed in many rental properties around the world. Rowley Estates is absolutely The Best.


Had a fantastic long weekend with Family. Hause Hall, Cruik Barn and Stables are Beautiful well equipped accommodation with ample space. Set in a peaceful location with absolutely wonderful views. Thank you Christine and Rowley staff


We have just returned from a magical stay at Hause Hall having celebrated our wedding there. We couldn’t have wished for anything more. The accommodation was superb and the location is stunning. We couldn’t recommend it highly enough all the staff were very helpful and friendly and responded to our questions very quickly. Our families had a wonderful time and we will hopefully return one day.


Stayed here in April with our children and grandchildren, this was our third visit. Lovely house and amenities, very clean and lovely bedrooms. Fantastic location, perfect for walking, didn’t need to use the cars after arrival. Fabulous views from the house. Would definitely recommend and we look forward to returning again.


We have just returned from our second stay at Hause Hall and have already made plans to go back next year. The location is amazing and the house is out of this world. Tastefully decorated and furnished to the highest standard. I would recommend Hause Hall to everyone, simply could not fault it. Many thanks Rowley Estates.


If you are looking for a place with space to be with friends and family, to have lots of laughs and have your breath taken away by the views, then Hause Hall is the place you need to be. I had my 50th there and it was 100% perfect, there's nothing I'd change.


What a wonderful place to spend time with friends and family. Amazing facilities and views.Lots of space for everyone to relax.


Just wanted to write to say thank you so much  for the most fabulous weekend at Hause Hall Farm.. The house was absolutely perfect for our family trip, celebrating our mum’s 80th birthday. It was the perfect space and so well equipped with everything we could possibly need. The views from the house are incredible and with the amazing weather this weekend, we got to appreciate them in their finest glory.
Thank you again for all your help.. We would most definitely recommend Hause Hall Farm to friends. It was such a great house in a breathtaking location.


We were thrilled with the whole thing- it is a beautiful house in a stunning location and suited our needs perfectly. Thanks so much!


We had the most fantastic time at Haus Hall. It was so much more than we imagined. The rooms were beautifully decorated and linen spotless as were the bathrooms. The kitchen open plan dining and lounge area was vast. Again spotlessly clean. Everything was taken care of.... even down to soap powder for washing machine and dog bowl. We loved the aga especially when we got back from wild swimming! The hamper was a real treat.
That view out of the day room leading into the patio was utterly stunning. We loved just walking out of the door onto the fells.... beautiful. We hiked, cycled, swam, canoed, kayaked, as well as sat watching the raptors, sheep, and deer amongst others. We can’t recommend Rowley estates highly enough and we will be back.


We did return for another amazing week! We were able to eat on the terrace, almost every day and thoroughly enjoyed our second Hause Hall experience. The memories of ‘that’ view will travel with each and everyone of us. Thank you to Christine, Jilly and the team. A wonderful time was had by all.

A wonderful, relaxing house, fantastic views even in typical Lake District weather. Just a fantastic place to have a holiday. We will be back!

Fraser and Co.08/06/2019Visitor Book

The 5th time for us this year and as ever, a very enjoyable occasion. It really is a great house, a great location and once more it gave us a great weekend. Already looking forward to the 6th. Hopefully it will round in the blink of an eye!

Thank you for providing us with a comfortable base where all our family could be together to celebrate my my Mum’s 80th Birthday. We have been fortunate to enjoy fantastic weather to explore this little gem of a place and had the well-appointed house and cottages to return to after walking each day. We really appreciated having such a well kitted out kitchen to prepare our meals and also the high standard of bedrooms/bathrooms etc for rest at the end of the day. The views are superb in all directions and we loved congregating in the living room with its picture windows. Thank you too for the welcome hamper and thanks Jilly for taking us through fixing the satellite dish so enthusiasts could watch the rugby.

Thank you for providing beautifully decorated, well equipped places to stay. We will be back!

Phillips and friends17/03/2019Visitor Book

This house couldn't have been any better ! Lovely setting with amazing views and wonderful walking straight from the door. Lovely cosy sitting area with wood fire for cold days and a beautiful sun room with views and easy access to a patio and garden for warmer days. Well equipped throughout with every little detail attended to and beautifully furnished. Great kitchen for self-catering and lovely pub/hotel within walking distance. Easy access to the Ullswater ferries. Friendly helpful manager and spotlessly clean. Delicious "welcome hamper" too. I would highly recommend this farmhouse, stables and barn as for our party of 17 walking friends it was just perfect !


We were a large party aged from 3 to 70. The venue and surroundings met our needs perfectly. The three buildings were spacious, warm and comfortable. Communications in advance of the stay were highly satisfactory. We all share very positive memories of the visit.


'I just want to say a great big thank you for our lovely stay at Hause Hall Farm, Cruik Barn and Stables. All our guests loved their stay and were very excited, when they got there, at the beautiful setting, their rooms and and the views. Our time there was perfect from start to finish. We loved the lovely warm rooms, cloud like beds and bedding, and spotless bathrooms. We made good use of the thoughtfully planned and exceptionally well equipped kitchen and dining room. My mam and dad were very comfortable in their downstairs bedroom with the specialist equipment you made available. Your generous welcome basket of provisions and food basics was much appreciated. It was great not to have to bring basics like washing up liquid, t-towels, kitchen roll, dishwasher tablets etc with us. Providing t-lights and holders was a lovely touch. The piece de resistance was the day lounge with that utterly captivating view. We all had endless pleasure watching the view appear, disappear then reappear through the mist and clouds. We were entranced by the changing colours of the hillside and sky when the sun came out. We appreciated the magic of the endless stars, planets and milky way when we had clear nights. It is so great that you don't actually have to go out of the house to appreciate the fantastic scenery you are in. We found the situation of the farm glorious and enjoyed the 15 minute walk down to the lake, Hotel snug and cafe and the pier for taking the steamer to Pooley Bridge too.'


We had a wonderful week at Hause Hall, Cruik Barn and the Stables with a family gathering of 14 and one dog. Booking was easy and the communications excellent. Arriving at the property we were treated to stunning views of the Martindale and Boredale valleys from the elevated position of the house. Fresh bread, eggs, biscuits and an enormous bowl of fresh fruit greeted us inside in the beautifully appointed main house. The kitchen, with its aga was fully equipped with all that was needed to cater for a small army, the enormous dining table seated the entire family and the wonderful conservatory was just perfect to watch the sunset over the hills behind Ullswater. All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated, the beds comfy and the whole place spotlessly clean. It is an ideal location to set out on numerous good quality walks without the need to get into a car. We cycled, swam in the lake and walked the fells. This is a wonderful place to stay, our week went by too quickly so we have booked again for next year.
