Excellent as always

5 of 5
This was our 3rd stay at Red Syke Cottage. Impeccably clean as always, superbly well maintained and equipped with everything you could need. A home from home. Brian & Theresa are excellent hosts. Can't wait to go back next year.

Beautiful Cottage !

5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at Lowside barn - the cottage is beautiful with stylish kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, modern bathrooms and cosy dining and living room. The garden is nice and neat with lots of space to sit out and a BBQ. Every room was clean and tidy and well equipped. 6 of us stayed and there was plenty of space ! The location is ideal for walks in the Lake District and there are plenty of local amenities (Penrith is a 15 min drive away and has supermarkets and shops, there are pubs 5 mins along the road/20-25 min walk away). Claire and Chris were both lovely and really helpful with plenty of tips on the local area, things to do and walks. Would definitely recommend Lowside Barn and hopefully we'll get an opportunity to stay again in future !
