Cosy Converted Barn On The Edge Of The Lake District

A lovely property in a quiet location with everything you need for a great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The Barn was small but perfectly formed and tastefully decorated and the kitchens cupboards were well stocked with everything you need. The garden is pleasant and secure with a lovely seating area to enjoy an evening drink in the setting sun. The property is in a quiet rural community but everything you need is within a short drive away including a Starbucks which scored bonus points for me! It was great to be able to take our 2 springer spaniels and they enjoyed a couple of the complimentary biscuits, whilst I enjoyed the bubbly and chocolates. We would definately return and reccommend to others.

The Lake District - stunning & Hill Top Barn offers excellent accomodation for dogs and their owners

  • 5 of 5

Hill Top Barn offered very comfortable accommodation in a small village close to Cockermouth at the north west of The Lake District. The barn was well equipped, clean with a secure garden which our 2 dogs loved although one took exception to the sheep grazing right by the fence.

Sadly the weather was not as good as we would have liked but we did get out every day. Particular good places for the dogs and their owners, St Bees Beach (lovely sandy beach), Keswick Lake side with walks through to Friars Crag and excellent coffee at the Café by the Lake. In Cockermouth a small café Wild Zucchinis Bistro which welcomes muddy paws in the conservatory and garden.

This was our third holiday in the Lakes and we enjoyed exploring Butternere, Elterwater, Ennerdale and Thirlmere. All have dog friendly pubs or café’s in the vicinity.

A real gem of a find. Wonderful location and very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

The property was well laid out and the conservatory really made the living room light and airy. The large landing gave it a great feeling of space. It is a wonderful cottage for those with dogs and is extremely pet friendly, the dogs did notice the biscuit jar on thr fridge. The bathroom felt luxurious with the underfloor heating. The garden had endless views over open farmland that stretched as far as the eye can see. The sheep enjoyed watching our white labrador in the garden as they thought he was one of them. Will definately be revisiting Hill Top Barn in the future. Thank you Morag for sharing this little piece of heaven.

Rustic luxury

  • 5 of 5

My family (6yrs to 69yrs) had a wonderful stay in this beautiful barn. Our expectations of this little retreat were certainly met and exceeded. Absolutely everything seems to have been thought of. Right from the start the comfort of this place could be felt. Some welcome treats (for us and the dog) plus tea, coffee and milk.

Our first day, the only one to be enjoyed with sun, was spent in the garden. On the little patio set and loungers, where we could take in the beautiful countryside with a glass or two of wine.

After a comfortable nights sleep we awoke to rain, none stop. This however just meant we got to enjoy the cosiness of the property all the more. With plentiful amounts of cushions and blankets we snuggled up to play games (some our own, some from at the barn), watch the selection of dvds that were at our disposal and relax reading in the comfort of the conservatory.

We did venture out a couple of times and enjoyed Cockermouth very much with Supermarkets and little shops selling something that little bit different. The Brewers Fayre for a meal was very nice too.

We can't really find fault with this little treasure at all. Had the weather during our stay been better we would more than likely have enjoyed a bbq and if we were to make one small suggestion, it would be for a bigger bbq than the one that was there.

All in all 'Thank you for sharing your home with us'.

Beautiful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Dear Morag,

I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our holiday and stay at Hilltop Barn. The accommodation was perfect for our family and our 4 children enjoyed the stay thoroughly. The barn is well equipped and lovely furnished. The surroundings are so beautiful and serene, we just enjoyed seeing the endless green fields and the peaks. We managed 4 full days of great fun and adventures. The location of the barn was convenient and we managed to move around easily. Easy to get from Ullock to Keswick, Aira Force and Ullswater, Cockermouth.

We would hope to be able to return at some point in the future.
