We had a lovely home made Banana Cake waiting for us upon arrival and after a long drive with a 2yo, was very much welcomed. This was our first family holiday with our Son so we wanted to be able to have the space so he could enjoy himself without any restrictions and the cottage certainly offers that. Every little detail seems to have been covered by Jenny, from books and games to relax in the evening to even a children's cutlery set with plastic beakers along with a high chair in the cupboard. Whether you are travelling as a family with children or as a group of adults walking and hiking the local area, Barn House will cover pretty much everything you need and not only would I recommend it, but look forward to returning in the future.

Spot on for location - very short walk to town centre. Clean and comfortable - has everything you need for a short or longer break. Sue

It was clean and well equipped for any need we might have with a few lovely extra touches. The log fire was cosy and the welcome book provided us with lots of information, tips and recommendations regarding the local area. The cottage was nicely decorated and even provided games, books, dvds and a tv to entertain us in the evening. The location is perfect as you can access many stunning walks and you are close to the lake. We enjoyed a different kind of tour of the lake and rented a canoe from Portinscale marina. Keswick town is just a few miles away and provides shopping and entertainment; the Saturday market is a must. There is so much to do here and we will definitely be returning to Grange Fell.
