Whether celebrating in style or simply spending quality time together, historic Morland House is the perfect place for a memorable holiday, providing comfortable accommodation for large groups of family and friends. As soon as you enter the oak panelled front hall you will be swept back into a former age. The spacious manor house is set in four acres of Victorian walled gardens with views to the Pennines. The rural village of Morland lies in the heart of the beautiful Eden Valley adjacent to the Lake District.
Sleeps 6 - 19.
The Grade II listed house dates to Tudor times but much of its character derives from it being the family home of the Markham family since 1828. Over the last two centuries the house has been extended and filled with a fascinating variety of paintings, books, antiques and curios which make a stay here truly special. Recent modern touches include the all essential home comforts of excellent WiFi, central heating, modern bathrooms – and new beds! The large south-facing double-ended sitting room and the dining room both seat 18 and have open fires and oak panelling hung with family portraits. Hire a local cook for dinner and you have a splendid setting for a special and memorable family occasion with minimum fuss. There is a separate catering kitchen.
The gardens are a very special feature, with four acres of lawns, kitchen garden, rose garden and herbaceous borders. Steps lead down to the stream and a children's wonderland with riverside walks, waterfalls and secret Victorian quarry garden complete with grotto. After a game of croquet, children of all ages will love 'through the green baize door' with the fully equipped modernised family kitchen seating 12 and a games room with seven foot pool table, table tennis, darts, large TV, WiFi and board games. There is a snug with TV and separate utility room.
Three generations of the family are involved in owning and running this cherished home. Lettings available for guests for weekly lets or short breaks (weekends or mid-week) - check availability here.
