It was ideal as it was only a 10 min drive to Windermere. The converted barn was just perfect with everything you needed. Log fire was on most of the time as the weather was cold and wet. Lee also provided us with extra toys to keep our son entertained. This is a perfect example on how a holiday home should be run. Thanks Lee
