Mrs Anne Barnes purchased this cottage in 1999
We came to Tarnside because we needed to improve the training facilities for the horses and live in a lovely area.Tarnside is special and everyone who visits says they want to return soon.The cosy feel of the cottages is just what people need for a relaxing stay.
We love the view and the peace and quiet of our home.
We have enjoyed a most relaxing stay at Tarnside,we watched the racehorses at work,that was amazing they are lovely animals and so healthy and shiny.A great place to stay and visit Hadrian's wall and the Lakes.
We were really excited and pleased as we pulled up at the property and so were our children. Really special to be so close to all the horses and my daughter was delighted as she loves chickens too! The owner is very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The accommodation was really clean, very bright and pleasant, and well kitted out. The view from the patio doors was really stunning and lovely to take in first thing in the morning. It was a great location for us to explore Hadrian's Wall, Carlisle and the surrounding areas, but we couldn't wait to get back and get that wonderful log burner on. Would definitely go back again.
Really nice and clean quite cottage! Owner is very nice and welcoming.good location with good view. Easy to go both Lake District and Scotland. Very well equipped in kitchen! Very much enjoyed time there while exploring Lake District and Scotland! Definitely coming back!!
If you're looking for a quiet peaceful retreat, this is the place. We used this as a base while we explored the Lake District, and it was delightful to return to the sanctuary of this lodge after our busy days out. The lodge is very clean and comfortable and very well maintained. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the owners are very easy-going and did not intrude on our stay at all. The location is idyllic. It was lovely to watch the horses being exercised in the morning. If the weather is warm, the garden, with its view of the tarn, is a perfect place to relax, and the charming little garden birds and rabbits etc made a very pleasant change from the noisy pigeons and seagulls that I get in my garden! I highly recommend this place.
We travelled with our 4 yr old son and 2 yr old daughter. Both loved being able to runaround the fields, pet the horses and feed the chickens. Maurice and Anne made us feel that we had the run of the place! For adults the local scenery is stunning, the view from the cottages ideal for sundowners and the local pub, about 1 mile away, is a good option for meals. All in all a very chilled out stay. Would definitely recommend.
I'm not being picky but no sky tv ( only free view ). No washing machine and no wi-fi. Very cold cottage.logs weren't replenished as promised and the log burners rope seal has disintegrated resulting in the fire burning out very quickly. Don't bother taking your mobile either.
Lovely owner who was very welcoming, lovely views to side and relax to look at of the lake. Nice cosy place with a lovely log fire, and good location for walking the dogs and not to far drive to get food etc. would stay again. Thank you Anne

The Gretna Gateway Outlet Centre is only 20 minutes away by car. The Cumbrian Antiques Centre in Brampton is a wonderful way of shopping for antiques within a unique surrounding.

If you want a totally stress free holiday/break, the local walks around Tarnside are well worth experiencing. There are a number of good local eateries including the Blacksmith's Arms in Talkin.
