The Airbnb mansion on a private Lake District island that works out at £41 per night

An impressive manor house situated on its very own private island is now available to rent through Airbnb. Located on the grounds of Hermitage House in Halton, Lancashire, the detached country idyll can sleep up to 24 visitors, making it the perfect location for a family get-together or special occasion.

With rental prices starting from an expensive-sounding £1,003 per night in May, if you and 23 of your crew come to relax together the price drops to just £41 per person, per night at full capacity. If you dream of living the luxe life in your country estate, or imagine yourselves as lords and ladies of the manor for a few days, this property offers everything you need including a games room, swim spa and sauna. The Lancashire island house can be booked directly through Airbnb with selected dates still available from May.

Stepping onto the island, guests can breathe in the stunning surroundings with views out across the River Lune and the adorable Otter Island. There is even the option for guests to try their hand at fishing if they bring their rods along.

Utterly charming at every turn, the house is home to its very own games room, casino and cinema, as well as a hair salon for guests who want to arrange to be pampered during their stay. Outside, the gardens surrounding the house offer plenty of opportunities for a therapeutic escape, and the views across the water are superb.

A third review simply said “What a place. Everything fantastic. 14 of us on a work Christmas event. All said how great it was a hot tub, casino. Sauna, everything is great.”

A small number of guests, however, felt that the kitchen was underequipped to cater for 20 or more people. One also mentioned in their review that “The fridge is for a small family and had no shelves. The ovens, dishwasher, kitchen sink and stove are more for a family of six with limited pans and trays. No operating instructions and there were no cleaning materials”.

Despite the small number of negative comments, all visitors agreed that the hosts acted quickly to resolve any issues. The property has enough parking for 10 vehicles and if you want to venture off of the island and all it offers, the house is close to Beaumont Grange Farm Equitation Centre, Gresgarth Hall Gardens, Lancaster Castle and the Lancaster Maritime Museum.
