The first impression on arrival is of the location with the stunning views up to the peaks of the Southern Lakes and across the estuary of Duddon Bay... The bungalow is comfortable and very will equipped with a great pub (The Ship Inn) just a minute's walk away down the hill, although the return journey may be a tad longer... Would definitely return!

My Children and I travel the UK and stay in all sorts of places. Halsteads is a little out of the way but we love that. The views are awesome and light pollution at night time is minimal too. It is such a peaceful property and we can only recommend it highly

This property is amazing from the moment you park up on the generous drive amongst the beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers. It is very spacious throughout with no compromise needed in any part of the property. A very large kitchen and breakfast table. Amazing views from there and everything you could need from a kitchen. Train station is only two minutes walk away - the trains are not an intrusion at all in my book as they show a little bit of daily life going on amidst the ultra tranquility otherwise surrounding the place. Loads of thoughtful extras throughout the property - games, books, maps, dvds, extra pillows and bedding, extra garden seating and instructions wherever needed. Large BBQ available but we had rain and didn’t get to play with it - great elevated location for this. Secret garden at the front is beautiful. View from main bedroom over the garden is lovely to wake up to. A really charming place in a great location. The Ship Inn (one minute walk) is closed Mon and Tue but we received a very warm welcome on Weds and had a great free game or two of pool. Nearby towns offer all shopping and takeaway options. Tesco delivery worked a treat and made for an even easier stay. Overall a wonderful experience enjoyed by us all - 15yr old said “I love it here I’d come back every year”. Thanks to Mike and Helen for great communication throughout.

Had a great week at Halsteads. This is the most organised and well equipped house I’ve stayed at and the communication and helpful tips from the owners were great. The view is amazing, can see for miles across the estuary and over to the hills. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed in this property during the first week of Sep 2020. The overwhelming memory from our break was sadly, the very dusty and dated property. The old carpets and similarly old furniture caused my husband to have an asthma flare up due to dust. There is a very distinct fusty smell In the house, the damp hits you every time you enter. Clothes that had been stored in the master bedroom required washing on our return home due to the smell. As previous reviews highlight, the property is very well equipped and it does have a wonderful view but unfortunately those points alone don’t make for a pleasant holiday rental, when the property really is in need of some modernisation and attention.
