“Wonderful accomation”
Reviewed 26 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

My family have just spent a lovely weekend in this wonderful converted barn. Really spacious yet cosy, well equipped, clean and comfortable. Great location and very easily reached. Lots of walks in the surrounding area. Very short drive to Kirkby Lonsdale. Didn't want to leave.

Lounge has lots of seating and large flat screen tv and video
Wi fi is provided
Towels are provided.
laundry room with washer and drier
Games room with pool table, table football for the bug kids and connect 4 [BIG] for the little ones
Small sitting room with tv and playstation.

“Best holiday cottage that we have visited”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Knott's View Barn is easily the best holiday home that we have stayed in, it was beautifully clean and more spacious than we could have imagined, believe me the photos on the website do not do this converted barn justice.
The kitchen is so well stocked with everything you could ever need, so leave the bits you would normally take at home.
Welcome package of freshly baked cake and wine was a lovely touch.
We were a family of four adults, three teenage boys, one teenage girl and a toddler and a week in this place was not enough, there is plenty to do and the furthest you should need to travel to any of the major attractions is a half hour drive.
I think it is the first holiday I have had where all four teenagers said that they enjoyed it and would want to return.
Don't worry about what to do when you get there as Ian & Anna have a box full of leaflets with most of the things to do in the Lake District.
Lastly don't mention Go Ape to your teenagers if you are like me and get dizzy just looking over a bannister as they have to have a participating adult with them ( it was the scariest day of my life ).
Ian & Anna, thank you for a wonderful stay, we will be back at some stage in the future.

“More than we expected, perfect for family of all ages”

Excellent property, spotless, with all modern conveniences and more. Really well equipped with more kitchen equipment than anyone would need all appliances provided including a downstairs laundry/ boot room, play area indoor and out plus a snug for the kids and you could get lost in one of the many rooms available peace and quiet, massive kitchen dining room, and the biggest lounge which even had a piano included. Bathrooms were plenty and ultra modern especially the main shower room on the top floor lovely heated floor and power shower loved it could have slept there but beds were far more comfy. On the whole for a family with young or older children this was a perfect holiday rental with fabulous views and perfect for walking, climbing biking and a whole range of sports not mentioned or just chilling. Great restaurants and pubs near by and Kirkby Lonsdale is beautiful and our children loved the devils bridge and the well equipped park easy access to Kendal and the lakes or Yorkshire dales within easy reach had a fabulous time and would thoroughly recommend On top of all that our host Ian and Anna were more than helpful in every way nothing too much trouble many thanks

“The best holiday cottage I have ever stayed in!”

The title pretty much sums up this beautifully restored barn! The owners have thought of everything a family could possibly need and more. The quality of the fixtures, furnishings and fittings were of the highest standard. We had 5 children staying between the ages of 3yrs & 8yrs so the back garden, swings and sand pit were a huge hit. The owners were on hand to help with any queries, the view is stunning and the location perfect for a number of great days out for all members of the family. We have stayed in many, many cottages over the years but this is by far the best and we would return in a heartbeat!!
