A cosy spacious traditional barn conversion with many original features.
Spent four nights here in late Oct/early Nov - and enjoyed the cosy comfortable rooms during those first few dark winter nights.
Plenty of bedroom space for six of us, and lovely to have option of two sitting rooms - we mainly used the one with wood burner. (we bought wood and didn't find the starter pack listed). We didn't use upstairs dining area - tending to eat in kitchen which was easier than carrying meals through two rooms and upstairs. Main bathroom being downstairs was a pain with four children but we managed. Ensuite in huge master bedroom was tiny and had two louvred doors with loo just inside which seemed very odd. Shower powerful and lots of hot water though boiler incredibly noisy! When it kicked in overnight it was a bit like a plane taking off. Younger children enjoyed the climb up to the secret play loft. Overall comfortable house with all you'd need for a weeks stay & some interesting local attractions.
Overall very good. We all enjoyed our stay kids really love mousehole and play loft.
Just an observation need more toilet tissue and maybe spare bathroom mats as they were all getting soggy by the end of our stay. Also there are areas of the cottage that could benefit from cleaning windows were dusty and covered in webs (by kitchen) . But it didn't not disturb our stay and we found everything we need for our stay. Thank you would recommend it for others.
We had a wonderful week in Stainton, it's a superb location to explore the Lake District.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are delighted that you enjoyed staying at Dacre Garth, and visiting the Lake District.
