                                                                                                      4 of 5

The coach house had everything we needed and the provision of an 'arrival pack' was most welcome. Good location in Arnside with a short walk along the 'prom' to the pub in the evening and for access to Lakes. Highly recommend the coach house.

Everything we needed was there, plenty of space, lovely and clean. The garden was great for the kids to have a run about (on the dry days!) A good base for exploring the lakes.
