FANTASTIC PLACE TO RELAX & UNWIND

Fantastic place to relax & unwind
  • 5 of 5
A really lovely holiday home with great scenery and plenty of places to go for both adults and children. The house was well equipped, clean and spacious enough for 2 families to share. The children loved it and especially enjoyed playing with the owners dogs - they keep asking when we can go back!
Barbara and Guy were very welcoming and happy to answer any questions or help out if needed.
The house was served by a fair few takeaways in the area which was nice as we didn't have to cook every day. Definitely recommend :)

LUXURY ACCOMODATION, EXCELLENT VALUE

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying in the Barn. In fact, although we had loads of day trips planned, we actually spent a good deal of time at the house, swimming and relaxing. The space is tremendous and everything in the home, from the kitchen to the bathrooms, are top quality. The pool was also amazing - extremely warm and really large.

We cannot recommend the Barn enough. Our whole family loved it and it was definitely value for money. We hope to visit again soon!

THE COLLINGWOOD GIRLS

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a weekend break at the Barn and cannot reccomend it highly enough. The accomodation was superb with everything that was needed and more. The private pool and hot tub made it feel like being in luxurious spa. This was complemented by the owners arranging for a beautician to visit the property on Sunday where we all had treatments. This really made the weekend very relaxing for us all.
The object of the weekend for the seven of us (all ladies of different ages) was to have a relaxing break and it certainly acheived this and we will definately return.

ONE WORD - FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5
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.
