What a lovely little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights at this small, cosy, faultlessly fitted-out cottage. I've rarely slept better than I did here, and the atmosphere around the cottage is so wonderfully relaxing. Access via the M6 is easy (once you know where to look for the apartment - it's just next door to the Crooklands Hotel) and you're within easy striking distance of Windermere and Ullswater, amongst other attractions.

Lovely romantic stay in quiet cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend in May 2017 and had a great time. The cottage is a good size for a couple, the kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom and bedroom are cosy but nicely decorated and furnished.

Hosts were friendly and welcomed us in even though we arrived 2 hours ahead of time (thanks again!)

It's around a 20 minute drive to Kendal and 30 minute drive into Windermere and Barrow on Windermere, which was fine for us.

Definitely recommend staying here :)

A stylish, comfortable little property.

  • 3 of 5

The property was as described and well designed. However, as the skylight in the bedroom didn't open it was difficult to ventilate the property sufficiently and there was a slight damp smell. Also, from the photos it was not clear that the Barn is situated between a house and a cement wall, close to a main road and not with a particularly nice view. The wifi worked intermittently but the signal was not always reliable.

The gentleman living in the adjescent Farmhouse was very friendly but we didn't meet the owners. The complementary bottle of wine and ice cream were much appreciated!

Lovely little holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Pear Tree Barn for a weekend in July. It was a lovely quaint little place, and the owners have definitely made use of a small space. Very clean and modern and a perfect, quiet location. Lots of Lake District towns within 30mins of driving and lovely scenic routes. Definitely worth a stay and great for couples who are after time away. However, I would have picked an oven over a washing machine as this would have came in useful but plenty of good pubs around the lakes to eat at!

Thanks Tim and Emma

It is ideally placed for sampling the delights of the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales. Kendal, also known as the gateway to the lakes has a super selection of shops, bars and restaurants. The property is situated within a short walk of the popular Crooklands Hotel which offers both bar meals and an a la carte menu. The village of Endmoor is only half a mile away and has a local shop and a bakery. There are a good selection of walks from the door including the canal path and a scenic river walk.
