Really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We were at Lake District and stayed in Coomb View from July 3-July9, 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The farm house was beautifully renovated, very modern and have all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. Brian and Diane are great host. Upon arrival, there were milk, orange juice, bottle of cold water, cookies and tea and coffee already stocked. That was a wonderful gesture and greatly appreciated. The surrounding of the farm house is beautiful and peaceful. Many mornings, we woke up to the sound of bleating sheep which we love. It is very easy to get into Kendal which is only 5 miles away and has grocery stories, restaurants etc that are only 10 minutes away. We loved that the house is away from all the hustle bustle of the Lake District tourism but is closed enough that all the hikes and sightseeing are short driving distance. The only thing that we are not quit keen on is the "open shower" where there is no shower door/curtain and the water does splatter half of the bathroom. The tiles are heated so it really is not that big a deal, just not our preference. Wonderful place and definitely will stay here again if we are in Lake District again.

Amazing Location and Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage 5th-8th may and it was amazing, the weather was perfect and the location is practical, 10 mins away from local village and motorway. We had a warm welcome and the cottage had everything we need to cook at home. We loved this place because it was so peaceful and quiet, we were never disturbed and we we given our privacy, however they were always a knock on the door away from any requests or queries.

We give this a 5/5 for everything, we could not fault this stay in any way, there were a few comments about construction but when we stayed, there wasn't any noise apart from the local sheep! We would definitely stay again without hesitation.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your fantastic review and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Coomb View. We totally agree with you and love our home location as we have the peace and quiet yet only seven minutes from Kendal with all of its numerous amenities and also a ten minute drive to motorway links. We purposely designed both of our barn conversions so each had their own privacy yet we are only a stones throw away to answer any questions or queries. We look forward to welcoming you back.
