Lovely House, Lovely Location
Large, comfortable house, very well-situated for walking and cycling. Only 10 yards from the village pub - ideal! Highly recommended.
Lovely cottage with lots of room for the family
Absolutely delightful renovation with tons of character, beautiful modern conveniences, comfortable beds with nice linens, excellent service from the owners and property managers. You really couldn’t ask for more in a vacation rental - except perhaps a bit more bathroom space but we made that work out fine! The cottage has such character and we felt completely at home there.
Thank you very much for the kind review - we're delighted that you enjoyed your stay
Great place for a family holiday
Lovely spacious barn (or was it once a coach house for the inn next door - which could well have been a coaching inn?). Lots of space - great kitchen - comfortable living areas - excellent welcome tray and, of course, the mousehole and children's play loft was a hit with the younger members of the party. Very well situated between the M6 and Ullswater. Greatly enjoyed by all seven of us.
great location, spacious property with a character
great location within the national park but also close to the motorway,

Kind regards & Happy Christmas
A cosy spacious traditional barn conversion with many original features.
Spent four nights here in late Oct/early Nov - and enjoyed the cosy comfortable rooms during those first few dark winter nights.
Plenty of bedroom space for six of us, and lovely to have option of two sitting rooms - we mainly used the one with wood burner. (we bought wood and didn't find the starter pack listed). We didn't use upstairs dining area - tending to eat in kitchen which was easier than carrying meals through two rooms and upstairs. Main bathroom being downstairs was a pain with four children but we managed. Ensuite in huge master bedroom was tiny and had two louvred doors with loo just inside which seemed very odd. Shower powerful and lots of hot water though boiler incredibly noisy! When it kicked in overnight it was a bit like a plane taking off. Younger children enjoyed the climb up to the secret play loft. Overall comfortable house with all you'd need for a weeks stay & some interesting local attractions.
