One word - FANTASTIC
Submitted: January 4, 2011
Stayed: December 2010
Our party (4 adults and 4 kids, ranging from 4-7) stayed for the Xmas period, 23-30 dec 2010 and to say that the whole experience far exceeded our expectations would be an understatement.
Firstly the accommodation, absolutely first class. The living area was spacious and very well appointed. The entertainment system was brilliant, the surround sound actually knocking snow off the roof. The bedrooms were comfortable and nicely presented, we had all 4 kids in one room using the bunks and double bed, probably not our best idea....
The kitchen was of a good size, the only downside was quite a small fridge, which considering we were feeding 8 for the xmas week presented a challenge, but the addition of the beer/wine fridge was a great help. On the flip side the dishwasher worked well, the kitchen was well stocked with crockery/glasses and cooking equipment and there was more than enough space.
The swimming pool, oh how we enjoyed the swimming pool. And the Hot Tub, well, what can I say, sitting in the tub, looking out over a snow covered Cumbria, what could be better. The provision of robes for everyone and enough towels made things feel even more 5 star hotel than we had expected.
The outside areas were all very pleasant, although we didn't spend too much time out there because of the snow, but it looked lovely.
All in all I could not recomment the barn highly enough. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable time and would not hesitate in returning, indeed we hope to do so in the near future.
Thank you Barbara and Guy for making our stay so memorable.
Families with Young Children,
