“Easter weekend in the Lakes”
Reviewed 5 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We loved the location of the cottage. Isolated enough to be surrounded by sheep, and enjoy complete silence, but close enough to the A66 to get anywhere in few minutes.
The cottage had everything we would require.
My only negative comments would be:
One. The shower is of poor quality. It was almost impossible to enjoy a good flow of hot water.
Two. We like cooking our evening meals, and we found a lack of large pans to boil rice/pasta for four, as well as of frying pans to cook meat.

“Would stay again but some things need updating”
Reviewed 24 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Location was in a very quiet area but you had to travel along a badly maintained track to get there and it was just a little to far from main amenities. The cottage was clean and the beds very comfortable, softer then we are used to but we slept well. The lounge furniture was uncomfortable especially the two chairs which were well used with flat cushions and grubby underneath. The frying pan was not usable due to brown stains. The pans would not be adequate to cook a meal for four people, due to their small size. the kitchen otherwise was clean, modern and apart from the pans was very well equipped. The bathroom was well equipped and the shower although small had plenty of pressure and the water was always hot. Unfortunately we could not hang clothes in the main bedroom as the small wardrobe had a Christmas tree inside. Sadly no Wi-Fi for children. A few changes as mentioned would make this a superb accommodation. Emily was very accommodating, in view of the fact that this was booked at short notice. If the few points mentioned were addressed then we would recommend this to friends but as it stands now then we would not.

“Great place for base in Lakes”
Reviewed 1 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

Really good place to stay in during out little holiday in Lakes. It was a pleasure to deal with the host Emily. She provided all the instructions how to find it and obtain keys. Very easy to follow. Barn itself was cosy and clean with all duvets provided, cutlery etc. If I could make a suggestion to the owner - please get a new pan as the one you have is well well used. Otherwise all was good:) We went for a lunch to the nearest pub the Sportstman Inn, food was quite good. I would recommend to everyone to visit Aira Force waterfall which is only 15min drive from the cottage and also drive to Pooley Bride- Ullswater lake is stunning.

“Lovely Cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The cottage is in open country side but easily accessible from the A66. Good views and walking from the front door. 2 pubs within a mile walking distance, we went to the Sportsmans Arms which was excellent. The cottage was clean and tidy - how lovely to arrive and the beds are already made up. Lots of tourist leaflets, games and books available and a decent TV. Dishwasher was a bonus I was not expecting!
Although the heating was storage heaters, so toasty in the morning and just ok in the evening (we had snow whilst we were there in April!) there was an extra heater in the main room that made it really comfortable.
Downsides? Take a loo roll as it seemed from the visitors book that they are not always provided! Beds were a bit soft and wallowy so don't go if your back is bad. Only 4 mugs so I seemed to have to wash them every time I wanted a drink!

“Great retreat ”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My family and I stayed here for 4 nights and it was great. It was cosy, warm and the location was ideal. It has all the mod cons but bring a DVD player if you plan to watch films in the evening.
It is close to ulswater, Penrith and Keswick. There is a lovely pub that serves nice food nearby. We all had a great stay here, we were sad to leave and would come back.
We had a problem with the access road being closed but we called the owner who guided is in, great service
