Valley View House

Nestled in the charming town of Dalton-in-Furness, Cumbria, is this superbly appointed detached Victorian treasure of a dwelling, Valley View House Dalton. This property has recently been converted into a large holiday home for all types of guests wishing to explore all the delights of the Cumbrian countryside. Choose from a range of sitting rooms to unwind after a long day sightseeing and tune into the TV and watch some of your favourite shows as the open fire warms you. There is a wonderful library room which holds a large number of books; take one and head into the snug where you can enjoy some quiet time. There is a large kitchen which has everything you could possibly think of for your self-catering needs, and a large dining room to gather with your home-cooked meals and have a sociable evening together. If you're looking for a quiet space with a view, then venture into the orangery, or take some time out in the games room where you can play a round of table tennis and browse through their selection of board games. Choose from ten well-presented bedrooms, set up as either king-sizes, doubles or twins and benefitting from their own en-suites. Race to choose your ideal bedroom and its bathroom facilities, with three of the en-suites hosting a Jacuzzi bath so you can have a long and relaxing soak to rejuvenate for the days ahead. While you're in the area, take advantage of your town centre location and browse through Dalton-in-Furness's selection of pubs, restaurants and cafés for those evenings you don't fancy cooking. If you're an animal lover, you'll delight in visiting the South Lakes Safari Zoo which spans across 51-acres and is perfect for you and your little ones to enjoy a day trip to. You can explore this town rich history at Dalton Castle, or venture further afield towards the medieval ruins of Furness Abbey. Dalton also has its own train station which can take you closer to the Lake District National Park and all of its magnificent attractions. Make sure you travel towards Lake Windermere, popular for its vast amount of watersporting opportunities including sailing, fishing and kayaking. If you're looking for more outdoor activities, Helvellyn and Scafell Pike are ideal for keen hikers, or enjoy some walks alongside any of its picturesque lakes. Literary lovers will delight in visiting Dove Cottage and The Wordsworth Museum, where the famous poet William Wordsworth once lived with his family and sister Dorothy and wrote many of his well-known poems. Valley View House Dalton is an excellent choice for a countryside retreat for a large group.
