Outstanding Barns....! Very high spec & spacious.

5 of 5
The Brockram & Keld Barns are exactly what we wanted for a short break with friends, comprising of four families. They are beautiful & very spacious with the outdoor areas perfect for the families children ages 6-15. Harriet & Ed made us all feel at home with the added extra of an on-line shop being put away for us all upon arrival. The barns were warm and very high spec with all the essential that you could want. I would recommend both barns if you want a secluded break away from it all & in a beautiful setting. We will be back very soon.

Lovely Cottage with Just the right amount of Technology

5 of 5
My Wife, 9 month old son, Cocker Spaniel and myself enjoyed a relaxing weeks holiday in this lovely cottage. The weather was in different but the cottage was well equipped enough to spend days inside taking advantage of the modern kitchen appliances, wifi and digital tv. There is not much to do in the area around the cottage but the Lake District is a short drive away with Ullswater only taking 10-15 minutes by car. There is a post office/general store hybrid next door to the cottage and a Bistro offering better than pub quality food a short walk away. Definitely recommend but travel is required if you want to explore.
