Kenton pollard purchased this barn in 2014
Everything you could need is available, it's a comfortable cottage surprisingly spacious, great base from which to explore.
The barn was lovely very warm cosy and inviting, just perfect. Some nice walks around the village . We didn't venture far but certainly suited our needs, the dogs were very happy and garden a nice size. Would definitely go again
Property was lovely, had everything needed for a perfect break. It was clean comfortable and cosy, also kept lovely and warm our whole stay. Kenton called on arrival with information and then left us to it which was great. Went into Appleby and Penrith and had super weekend. Would definitely recommend.
We stayed for 2 nights at this beautiful cottage. We was welcomed by the owner who was very helpful and friendly and he showed us around and it had everything you would want for a romantic getaway. It was very clean, very spacious and the log fire gave it that extra special touch. The kitchen was very well equiped and had coffee, tea provided. Upstairs bedrooms are very impressive with a stunning bathroom and master bedroom having its own unsuite
The cottage is situated in a beautiful area with breathtaking countryside views and the villege is very quiet and has a pub directly behind the cottage which we could access via the cottage's garden. The pub was very cozy and the food was amazing.
We would highly recommended staying here and we cant wait to come and visit again and we might even bring our kids next time lol.
Looking forward to visiting again

We chose this cottage based on it being dog friendly and its location within the Eden Valley and proximity to the Lakes. It actually delivered a lot more than this, and we are delighted to have discovered this gem of a holiday cottage.
Arrangements to book the cottage, obtaining arrival details and sorting out keys were all very straightforward. There was a bottle of red waiting for us when we arrived and the owner, Kenton, met us at the property in the evening to ensure that we had settled in OK. The cottage is very clean throughout, and all bed linen and towels provided were clean and recently changed. We didn't have any issues at all during our stay so didn't need to contact Kenton again, but we were reassured by the fact that he lives locally to the cottage, so had we needed his assistance he would be able to respond quickly,
The cottage has been beautifully renovated throughout, the photos on the website do not show how spacious the cottage is which was a welcome surprise. All of the rooms are a good size, and the pantry area off the kitchen was really handy. The garden is securely fenced on all sides and the conifers provide privacy from the pub and car park to the rear. There was plenty of wood provided for the log burner, although the weather was dry and mild for most of the week we were there so we only used it a couple of times.
The staff at the nearby pub, The Masons Arms, were really accommodating. Dogs are allowed in the pub, but we were concerned about taking ours in for a Sunday lunch (they are liable to beg everyone for food, not just us!) so the Landlady, Karen, arranged for a "take away" service! The food and service was fantastic.
We will definitely be returning to Kenton's cottage again in the future and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
This was the second time we have stayed in this cottage (we never have stayed in the same cottage twice before!) and just as last time it was lovely.
The keys were left in the door for us upon arrival as we had been before and knew where it was. The owner (Kenton) did check in on us in the evening to make sure everything was ok.
The cottage is very spacious and pretty modern. The garden is dog proof which with 2 dogs is a massive bonus, though there are some lovely walks around the village!
The pub is just to the back of the cottage but any noise coming from it cannot be heard inside the cottage.
The log burner is really nice and heating works well.
Only 2 down sides to the cottage:
the first one is that if you enjoy hot baths the bath when filled isn't very hot (as it probably uses up all the hot water) but the 2 showers are fine.
The second one is that the DVD player doesn't have a remote which is fine if you want to watch a movie (there are dvd's at the cottage) as you can just use the buttons on the dvd player to start the dvd. But if you want to watch series and want to select and start episodes it is not possible. We remembered this from the first time we stayed and brought our own dvd player. The TV is MASSIVE!
Would we stay again? Yes we will, probably same time next year.
Its close to the lakes (ullswater is lovely) and close to the A66.
set just a short distance from the foot of the penines. And 3 miles from the historic town of Appleby and a short drive to the market town of Penrith. Only 30 mins from the lake district
