Don't just take our word for how great Hillside House is, see what our guests have to say about the property and location.

We had a fantastic time at Hillside house! The pool, the bedrooms, the outside area everything was spotlessly clean when we arrived. We really enjoyed the fact that we were on a bus route as well to Glenridding where we did a treasure hunt activity on the lake.

Jody - Manchester, July 2024

We have returned safely from a fabulous weekend away. 10 very satisfied holiday makers. The four grandchildren made the best possible use of the amazing pool, in fact we all did and the hot tub was the hottest hot tub I have ever experienced. We wanted for nothing as this house was so well equipped. Thank you for all of the information you sent, as a result our Asda order arrived right on time and we were able to relax not needing to leave the property for anything. Spotlessly clean, everything was perfect thank you. An en suite for each bedroom.....perfect.

Nicola - Northumberland, March 2024

We had such an amazing long weekend at Hillside house in the lakes. The house is so spacious and well equipped, ideal for a large group. We had our extended family (17 of use including children) for our pre Christmas celebrations. The children loved the pool and the adults made full use of the Jacuzzi and the gym. The tables were large enough for all the family We enjoyed lovely walks around Ullswater and Pooley bridge. Very much recommended we would go back anytime it was fabulous for all ages. Many thanks.

Anna, May 2022

We enjoyed our stay at Hillside House very much - we all particularly enjoyed the luxury of having an indoor heated pool and hot tub. It was a great way of entertaining the 5 children. It's a lovely spacious house with a good combination of open plan space and comfortable bedrooms. It was all very clean and the caretakers were helpful.

Gila, January 2022

It was billed as a Wowhouse on booking and it certainly was. Family and friends met to celebrate my wife's 50 birthday, in this amazing property and a great time was had by all.

Jon, December 2021

We had a great time, house was perfect for the celebration we wanted. Thank you. We will certainly use your company again next time we're planning something!

Kevin, November 2021

We had a really fun weekend together at Hillside House, which was a perfect property for our family get together. There was lots of space in the living area and everyone really enjoyed the indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi. It was a perfect location close enough to Penrith for a pop out to the supermarket but with country walks from the house, other nearby attractions, and obviously the northern Lake District hills, so something for everyone to do.

Amanda, November 2021

Thank you David and your team. It was amazing property and first time family been able to be together since my great grandaughter born in June 2021 and with Covid hindering holidays. Fantastic week. Thank you for all your help, customer relations second to non, brilliant.

Eleanor, September 2021

Thank you for providing a very professional service. We had a marvelous holiday in a fantastic house, in a beautiful location. Even the weather was kind to us. Our family group consisted of 14 members with ages ranging from 4 years to 74 years (and everything in between). The house and indoor pool allowed us all to have wonderful holiday. Once again, thank you for everything.

Mike, July 2021

The holiday place was good and would give it a 5 star. It was really nice and clean, and tidy perfect relaxed location and pool was just a master part of the holiday. And we will be coming back with our full family at some point.

Chaim, May 2021

Helen, November 2020

We were all absolutely blown away by the house!! It was outstanding. We felt like millionaires for a few days. We loved it.

Bev, September 2020

We had a wonderful time at Hillside House, it's so spacious and perfect for group entertaining with a gorgeous huge terrace, and two dining areas. We had a great time taking it turns to cook dinners in the well-equipped kitchen. The indoor pool and hot tub were an absolute highlight with all ages, there's nothing like a morning swim to refresh you before a days hiking. The scenery nearby is spectacular, we enjoyed hikes up peaks overlooking Ullswater.

Estella, July 2020

The hillside house was amazing, would definitely recommend to our friends.

Karen, November 2019

The first thing that I was aware of is how the photographs on your website reflected so accurately the size and amenities to be found at the house. All the rooms were of an excellent quality and left nothing to be desired. I suppose the highlight was the pool which exceeded expectations and certainly avoided any chance of the youngsters getting bored!

Geoffrey, August 2019

Excellent weekend thanks and a cracking property!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hillside House at the weekend. We were very happy to discover the house was actually even better than the photos, particularly the pool which was much bigger. The house was very well-equipped and had everything you could think of. The grounds were massive and gave the kids a chance to run about. We had a fabulous stay and would definitely return.

Upon arriving at Hillside House we were completely blown away by how amazing this house actually is. We were there for my sister-in-laws Hen Do and all 18 of us were in total awe of the place and its facilities ..... it was perfect and we had the best time EVER! We are already talking about a reunion next year and re-booking Hillside - it really does have the WOW factor!

Mandy, February 2018

We did enjoy ourselves at Hillside House. We were 10 adults, 8 children and a very young baby and we thought the house was well fitted out and there was plenty of space for all, especially the children when they wanted to run about and shout. The pool was a very important facility and well used, especially by the children.

Michael, January 2018

Fantastic property for large family group, the pool was fantastic for the little ones. Extremely well equipped with modern technology. Well located for Penrith and Poole Bridge. Good local pub The Beehive about a mile away.We had a brilliant week in a great house, with lovely cold crisp winter weather to boot. We will recommend Hiilside House and WOW House properties.

I have also given your details to friends on social media as some of the pictures we have shared have made quite an impression! We have no hesitation in recommending both The Wow House Company and Hillside house to anyone.

Jenny, October 2016

We had a very enjoyable stay at Hillside House thank you.We were extremely impressed with both the size of the interior and the very high specification of the design and the fittings.Indeed it is possible that your own marketing doesn't do it justice because the accommodation went way beyond our expectations.

Jen, February 2016

With regards to feedback we had an absolutely great time. The children especially loved the swimming pool and the owners had put a lot of thought into providing inflatable toys, swimming nappies etc to make this fun for all.The welcome gifts we received was a lovely touch and again the children loved the little toy dogs for each of them.
