Had a great time at swan house, great for travelling to soo many different places.. Great pub right there too. The house was like home from home, very comfortable. The radiator in the ensuite wasn't working, but not a major problem at all

Thoroughly enjoy our holiday at Tewitfield Marina and would hope to return in the near future
Mrs Linfoot, September 2020
An extremely relaxing holiday accommodation with beautiful surroundings.. It was lovely being able to sit outside watching the ducks, swans and the boats. The only downside was the hardness of the pillows and dining chairs, but that is personal preference anyway. A supermarket was very easy to get to and we had some really nice walks by the canal..
Mrs Schofield, August 2020
The apartment was in a fabulous position overlooking the marina.. We were able to watch people working on their boats. We were very close to the pub, which was dog friendly. We were able to eat in the bar with our staffie. The whole area was dog friendly and we appreciated the welcome pack, comfy bed, towel and dishes provided for the dog. Everything we needed, and more, was in the apartment. There were even chairs and a table outside for relaxing and watching the world go by.

Found the site very enjoyable and relaxing and will be staying again the accommodation was very comfortable ..
Mrs Young, July 2020
The property was well located, spacious, well furnished and really clean and warm to arrive to.. In almost everything it was really good. Our only criticisms would be that the beds seemed very hard to us, and the cottage would benefit from more cutlery (difficult to use the dishwasher effectively when only 6 knives and forks).
Mrs Price, January 2020
We have had previous holidays at the Marina so went with high expectations.. We were not disappointed, everything was provided, clean and comfortable. Even a Christmas tree to welcome us!
We have visited this cottage a few times and will most likely return.. It is modern well equiped and comfortable. The marina is well looked after and the staff friendly and helpful. An ideal location for visiting coast, the lakes and Yorkshire dales.
My wife and I have stayed numerous times at the marina.. The development is in an ideal spot, Morecambe for the coast 15 mins away Blackpool for the fun to be had there 20 mins away..
The lakes are 20 mins away and Kirkby Lonsdale he same, Ingleton Hawes And Skipton are 35 mins away. York Harrogate about an hour.
The units are well managed as is the marina, the pub next door, can be booked vi a a mobile or tablet, is pet and child friendly with earl bird discounts. If you want eat in but not cook they do takeaway pizza! Only downside is you have a washing machine and no dryer, the dryers are at the back of the office and are not free to use
Swan house in tewitfield marina near carnforth is an ideal place for visiting the lake district.. If you want to stay at the marina there are plenty of walks to be had along the canal.Highly recommend.
The pictures you've got don't do the property justice.. Total chill out place pity it rained a couple of days but could not fault the break we had plus our little dog loved it especially going to the pub lol
Would like to book it again for next first week in july 2019
This is the third time we have stayed here and always enjoy it.. There are many attractions and places of interest to visit, not just the Lake District. The Longlands Hotel is excellent for a drink or a meal.
Grerat apartment and had all the amenities we wanted apart from no wifi in the property..
Very good holiday everything you need at 10 swan house.. Very comfortable right on the marina the ducks come to visit every day.will book again .
The only down side was no wifi and as reception so poor on mobile this was a big .... The only down side was no wifi and as reception so poor on mobile this was a big let down other than that I would have been very happy with our stay
The property is on a main bus route to the lakes and Lancaster And there is a hotel/ pub next door and a farm shop and cafe opposite .. The farm has a children soft play barn and other facilities for families.
If you are used to traffic noise in the background there is no problem.. We found it very intrusive and would not book this otherwise excellent property again.
Fantastic place to stay, right on the marina, and walking distance to a hotel for food. Dogs welcome and great for walking as its right on the canal. Perfect for an overnight or week long stay.
10 Swan House was immaculate in every way. Exceptionally clean and extremely well fitted out. Very peaceful looking out at the marina although I imagine it will be busy in the summer months. The food in Longlands Inn was excellent with a good variety to choose from and reasonably priced so we ate there every evening.
This cottage is a great find in a lovely setting right on the marina with the canal boats coming and going, it was very peaceful and tranquil. The hotel/pub is literally a two minute walk and is very good for both drink and food. The cottage was absolutely immaculate in every way and we would certainly return here without hesitation.
Stayed here for one week in August upon arrival we were very impressed with the quality and cleanliness of this house very well laid out and looking out onto the marina, we loved just watching the canal boats coming and going. You get a bit of noise from the motorway but not enough that it spoils it in any way, you are a two min walk up to the longlands hotel which does nice food and very good pizzas good beer as well. We liked it here so much that we are going back for a long weekend in September. There was no wi fi when we were staying but there is a room behind the office with wi fi and the pub has free wi fi as well, they are putting the wi fi in sometime soon.
Had a great time the accomodation had everything you required very comfortable indeed.parking no problem and had patio looking on to the marina.Carnforth lancaster,morecome within easy reach also the lakes.Would not hesitate in returning again and recommend to friends.
An ideal base for touring and a relaxing property to come back too. The rooms were very comfortable and warm.
Have been to Tewitfield Marina numerous times have stayed at 10 Swan House twice will return again. It was a lovely comfortable, spacious apartment, and dog friendly which is a great plus for us. In an ideal place for touring with a good hotel a few minutes walk serving good food.
Great base and great accommodation. Very comfy.
This is the third time we have stayed at Tewitfield and most definitely won't be the last. In a great location and the marina and cottage are both beautiful.
Me and my wife had a fantastic time at 10 Swan House. We will go back again, thank you.
10 Swan House was in a really excellent location, everything was in excellent condition and really modern and comfortable. we really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage
Fabulous location and property. It was not like a rental property at all, a home from home. We would definitely recommend.
An excellent place, will come again!
This was a spacious and comfortable house in a relaxing and pretty location. There were lots of places to visit nearby and we used the information book telling us about the local area all the time. There were also lovely walks along the canal from where we were staying and a bus from the road at the entrance to the marina.
We had a really enjoyable time!
The accommodation was spacious and comfortable with everything that you could need for a great holiday. We liked the information book which told us what attractions were in the area and we used that a lot. The location was very central and we were able to visit many places of interest.
We loved it here and the accommodation was as good as any timeshare wghich is what we've been used to. In fact it was better than a lot. We were so near the water it was like being on a boat and there were many places of interest round about. The cottage was well furnished and the kichen was well equipped wuith everything we could need. Three Tv's 0ne in each bedroom and the lounge. For me the only complaint was that could have been bigger as I have an eye and hearing problem but that's me and we solved the lounge one by moving the furniture bit I couldn't see the one in the bedroom because I couldn't see the subtitles. We are elderly so having to go upstairs to bed was a bit difficult but there was a toilet downstairs which helped. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at no. 10 Swan House. The property was very spacious and very well equipped. We loved the location, straight onto the A6 for the Lake District, and even the surrounding areas are beautiful, Grange-over-Sands, Arnside etc. We loved the holiday and we will definitely be coming back!
The location of the property was very good - parking was very easy and all aspects of the accommodation were well presented. An excellent location for exploring the lake district.
A very relaxing well appointed property. Close to many tourist attractions especially to the breathtaking scenery of the Lake District. The property was kept exceptionally clean by very hard working staff. The location was a real novelty, the Marina was so pretty and the walks along the canal bank were picturesque.
The high class accommodation and setting exceeded my expectations. The cleanliness couldn't be faulted.
The peace and quiet of the marina . The outstanding quality of the furniture and furnishings in the cottage. Even our little dog was well catered for. A most enjoyable holiday was had by all. We shall return at some date in the future.
great location, the accomodation wanted for nothing, great pub by the entrance to the site, I would go again and recommend to others
Very nice property. Good position for visiting Lakes and Lancs.
Beautiful cottage, everything as good as it was advertised.
Loved the house warm and relaxing pub at the entrance good food and also and the farm across the road with a farm shop and a very good pottery shop
very handy for the M6 which was the reason we picked the house and also quick link into the south lakes ...will stay again
The cottage was lovely, very well equipped and in a good location. Little things like coffee sachets provided and dishwasher tablets were already there.
Good position to M6 and good food available in walking distance with farm shop and pottery just over the road.
