Colin and Julie, 20 July 2012

"We have just spent a lovely week in the Lake District. The Barns is beautifully decorated and is a real home from home. I will be recommending this place to friends and family as it is a great find and an ideal base for exploring the area. Well done to Wayne & Louise for the standard of the accommodation and for their great customer service."

Kevin & Louise, 23 July 2012

Our stay at 4 Barns was part holiday and part family get-together. We wanted somewhere quiet but close to activities and family. We could not have chosen better. The cottage is superbly appointed, everything one could possibly need was provided and the reaction on opening the front door was a unanimous 'Wow!'

Deceptively spacious, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable and spacious cottage, quiet location but handy for the southern lakes. The owners could not have been more helpful with information we needed on our first night. Great accommodation for 6 without us feeling we were in each other's way.

The Barns, Haverthwaite

Great base for Southern Lakes

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house with great views across the fields towards a beautiful hillside. The house is tastefully furnished and has a real sense of space. Very impressed by the customer service received from Wayne the owner. Nice pub in the village which serves tasty food. Lots to do in local area: steam railways, Lakeside Aquarium, Old Man of Coniston, Morcombe Bay, Grizedale Forest, Stott Park Bobbin Mill, Hawkshead. We've had a fantastic holiday and would definitely book again.

Excellent Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at 4 The Barns for New Year (total 6 nights). From first booking to check out the owner was very helpful and speedy with the replies. On arrival at the property we found it spotlessly clean and very well maintained , self check in was very easy and straight forward. The Barn has a great feel about it and excellent views from the kitchen and living room windows. Probably the best thought out, designed and equipped holiday rental we have ever stayed in. We would highly recommend and as we own a holiday rental business over in Gozo (Malta) i would invite the owners over to stay with us any time.

(Tips) The local village pub is good for Ales and bar meals as we ate there twice , L'enclume Restaurant 2 Michelin stars was superb (15 minutes drive away) Stayed in the Barn and cooked a few nights as the kitchen has everything.
