The semi-detached house has been thoughtfully designed from the large welcoming entrance hall with original 19th century staircase to the cosy living room with wood burner and large open plan kitchendining room no expense has been spared to provide a luxury retreat to escape and enjoy your holiday in. The large private south-facing enclosed garden with patio and barbecue area makes the ideal spot to gather with the family to enjoy an al fresco supper as the sun sets. The attractive village of Askham is centred around two village greens and has a well-stocked shopoff licence which is open seven days a week and two pubs all within walking distance of the property. In the summer families can enjoy the outdoor heated swimming pool in the village. Not only does it have a 20 metre pool staffed by lifeguards but there is also a paddling pool refreshments kiosk and picnicking area.

Ullswater can be reached by foot 3 miles over the fells and once there you can enjoy a scenic walk around the lake or take a trip on one of the cruisers which set sale from Glenridding and Pooley Bridge. There is also Lowther Birds of Prey Centre and Lowther Castle and Gardens just a few minutes drive from the house. Shop pub and restaurant 100 yards.

    Excellent property, fabulous amenities in the house, substantial gardens and garden games and equipment, all located in the heart of a beautiful, peaceful Lakeland village.

    We had a fabulous time staying in this beautiful house. It was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed and more. The location is great - a quiet village with two lovely pubs serving excellent food, a fine dining restaurant and cafes. It's very close to Ullswater and a walk over the fell to Pooley Bridge is highly recommended.

    Very comfortable, very well equipped house in lovely friendly village. There are nice views from the house. The garden is big and looked very nice, although we were there in winter, so didn't really get a chance to enjoy it. Although only a few miles from the M6 it is incredibly quiet. We walked from the door almost every day, both along the river and parkland, and up onto the fells. Owner very helpful, contacting us to say we could arrive early if we wanted, and popping round to see we were okay - he stayed on the doorstep and wouldn't come in. We are already planning to come back.

    We had a fantastic stay at The Laburnams to see in the New Year. The property is extremely well appointed, roomy and homely, with a lovely garden and well positioned in Askham to have 2 pubs within walking distance and Lowther Castle only a 30 minute walk away. The owners were very attentive and helpful, leaving tea, coffee and wine available for us, and even had Christmas decorations and a tree set up in the house for our arrival. There were 7 of us in our party and the house was plenty big enough for us all. We would certainly return to The Laburnams without hesitation.

    Superb as before. Pricey but wonderful and probably worth the expense and even the luxury of not filling it. We'll be back. Already booked for the end of June.

    Great house and we've enjoyed staying on several occasions. Only two quibbles are that the price seems to have gone up year on year and at over 900 for an out of season week it is quite expensive and some of the equipment didn't seem to work (e.g. microwave and kitchen hand blender).

    The house was perfect for our requirements! Our family gathering was made complete with all the amenities offered even down to children's board games and spacious garden! The close proximity of several attractions in the area was a bonus too! 10 out of 10 ! Thank you for helping to make our family gathering full of memorable moments!

    As wonderful as ever. Prices are a bit steep out of the school holidays as witnessed by the lack of occupancy this month but it is our third visit and I will be back again once I've saved up!
