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 !
