Barn House - excellent location

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Barn House for 3 nights earlier this month and were delighted with the property and its location at the heart of the village. The property was clean, well-maintained and attractively furnished and presented. The kitchen was very well equipped with all "mod-cons" including a dishwasher. The bathroom, which has a bath and separate shower enclosure, was very clean and it was useful having a separate WC downstairs. The view from the master bedroom towards Skiddaw is terrific.

The house is literally next door to the Royal Oak Hotel where we enjoyed good ales (Jennings) and good food. Although so close to the pub there was no noise or disturbance in the evening. There is only parking for one car at the house and as we had 3 cars between us we parked the others on the street nearby which wasn't a problem. We didn't actually use the cars throughout our stay as Braithwaite is ideally located for starting several walks in the area.

We are looking forward to returning to the area in the future and would be more than happy to choose the Barn House again.

barn House, Braithwaite

  • 4 of 5
The property is well equipped, beautifully kept and was lovely and clean. The situation is excellent for exploring the northern part of the Lake district. There are good restaurants in Braithwaite, but the kitchen is well equipped so cooking at home was enjoyable too.
Jenny the owner was very helpful but we perhaps could have done with more communication beforehand. Views from the front bedroom are lovely but rest of house overlooks street etc. The outside space (patio) was not very private so we didn't use it, but it was no problem finding lovely places to enjoy the views within minutes of the house. I'd definitely recommend and we may well return next tiem we're in the area.

Excellent location , and perfect accommodation

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in BArn House for the first time in March . The cottage was a real surprise and it really does have everything you require - washing machine came in very handy and the dishwasher ! We did some amazing walks from the door over Catbells and Causey Pike and some lovely low walks around Derwentwater.

The log fire in the cottage was a real treat after a full day out and the pub next door served some great ales.

We hope to return before too long .

The village of Braithwaite has the best of both worlds - a quiet, safe, interesting village, where there are a choice of 4 village pubs to eat and drink -or if you want more choice Keswick is only 2 miles.

The area is a haven for walkers and Braithwaite is overlooked by the stunning Coledale Horseshoe - a magnificent walk with amazing views

Another historical Cumbrian town is Cockermouth, only twelve miles West of Braithwaite. Birthplace of the poet Wordsworth, Cockermouth is also home to the famous Jennings Brewery (where tours are available!)

Driving over Whinlatter Pass takes you to Lorton Valley, a stunning area which leads you to Crummock water, Loweswater and Buttermere . From Buttermere you can head either over Newlands Pass into Newlands valley or Honister Pass into Borrowdale valley, both which have tremendous views.

Other nearby recreational interests include the Keswick Golf Club (6 miles) and sailing on Derwentwater or Bassenthwaite (1 mile)

Other Activities: James Bond Museum

Golf: 2 Golf Courses close by at Keswick Golf Club or Cockermouth Golf Club
