Our Lakeland Barn is a great place to relax.
I am a music teacher. I love my job, but after a noisy week at work I like nothing better than to stay at The Barn and enjoy the peace and quiet in Garth Row, punctuated only by birds singing, lambs bleating and the occasional clip clop of horses hooves. I enjoy walking on the local fells, sailing on the lakes and visiting the Lakeland tea rooms.
Fran purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Fran chose Kendal
Garth Row is a great location for a property. It is far enough away from Kendal to feel very rural, but close enough to nip in to visit the shops, the restaurants and public houses and the cinema. The local fells are not busy as they are undiscovered by the majority of walkers. Many of the famous 'big' walks, the various lakes and towns and villages are easy to reach by car.
What makes this Cottage unique
I fell in love with this little barn on my first visit. I love the beautiful stone with which it is built and the thickness of the walls. The views onto the garden and surrounding countryside are lovely. It is a perfect location for a quiet and restful holiday, but only a few miles from the amenities of Kendal.

Long Weekend Break
We stayed at The Barn from Sunday through to Wednesday and were very pleased with what we found! The Barn is situated in Kendall, a short distance from Windermere where we spent most of our time on the lake. The views were exquisite, amazing weather and plenty of water sports based activities to do!
The Barn itself is cosy and the perfect size for two. Fran was a great host, especially considering we didn’t know the area, she was very accommodating with suggestions of things to do and places to visit. Fran also left some lovely goodies and was very friendly - would definitely recommend to friends and family!
Lovely wee barn
What a lovely wee barn! Fran is a lovely host and the wee welcome treats were very welcome. Everything nice and clean and so peaceful.
Lovely setting the barn was spot on just wished we had booked longer
All went smooth
We enjoyed our stay in this nicely decorated and furnished cottage. The kitchen is small but we had everything we needed to cook our own meals. The living area is comfortable and the heating was quick to warm the cottage up. The dining area looks out over fields and hills. The bedroom (downstairs) has plenty of drawer space and there is a small hanging area under the stairs. The shower in the bathroom is small and basic but with plenty of hot water Communication with the owner was easy. The cottage is situated down a narrow but very quiet lane with parking right outside the door. Dinner at Corner 124 in Kendal was very enjoyable - we ate there on a Monday evening and it was very quiet. Holehird gardens are well worth a visit if you need to give your legs a rest from hiking.
Nice base from which to explore the Lake district.
Beautiful and peaceful location
We really enjoyed our stay at the Barn. The location was perfect for a quiet, peaceful couple of days. Waking up to the sound of birds singing and the views were fantastic.
Fran was very helpful and the extra treats left for us was a nice touch. I would definately recommend the barn to anyone looking for a quiet romantic holiday.
Truly Lovely Time
What an amazing time we had! Stayed for a couple of nights courtesy of our son and loved the stay.
