Milnthorpe Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Traditional detatched barn transformed into neat boutique style accommodation

Pear Tree Barn is a wonderful example of a traditional detached property that has been cleverly transformed to create a beautiful, stylish holiday retreat for two. It is a superb choice for couples looking for that romantic getaway and for spending precious time together in quality surroundings. Striking colours throughout of red and black have been married with quality and carefully chosen accessories to create a stylish, contemporary look.

A stylish, comfortable little property.

  • 3 of 5

The property was as described and well designed. However, as the skylight in the bedroom didn't open it was difficult to ventilate the property sufficiently and there was a slight damp smell. Also, from the photos it was not clear that the Barn is situated between a house and a cement wall, close to a main road and not with a particularly nice view. The wifi worked intermittently but the signal was not always reliable.

The gentleman living in the adjescent Farmhouse was very friendly but we didn't meet the owners. The complementary bottle of wine and ice cream were much appreciated!

Fantastic little cottage in a handy area for reaching all the local attractions or for just shutting the door to the normal grind of working life

Lovely little holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Pear Tree Barn for a weekend in July. It was a lovely quaint little place, and the owners have definitely made use of a small space. Very clean and modern and a perfect, quiet location. Lots of Lake District towns within 30mins of driving and lovely scenic routes. Definitely worth a stay and great for couples who are after time away. However, I would have picked an oven over a washing machine as this would have came in useful but plenty of good pubs around the lakes to eat at!

Thanks Tim and Emma

Lovely place for a short stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely short break visiting the Lake District staying in this cottage, small but almost perfectly formed and in a fantastic location for easy access to everything.

We would happily stay here again; although it would have been useful to have had some additional notes on the website about how to find it (we had to park in the nearby hotel car park and have a little wander as the address didn't actually have a road name) and how to get the key.

The actual cottage itself was lovely and very well laid out, but again, some notes on how to use certain things would be useful - the shower and hot water both needed to be switched on and we weren't sure about wi-fi access. Having said that, we didn't ask the owner as we were able to use a BT hot-spot; he was just next door however and we did bump into him when we arrived so I think he would be very easy to contact and ask questions and seemed very friendly.

We absolutely loved our short stay at Pear Tree Barn. Everything was picturesque, inside and out, and Emma was such a friendly and helpful host.

The cottage design is such an efficient use of space and provides everything needed for a hassle-free stay. Thank you again for helping us to enjoy such a lovely weekend!
