“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

This is a very polished cottage, the finish and fittings are first class, if you are a hiker or simply need a relaxed break we would recommend the Granary Escape, easy to find location with plenty of activities close (including pubs with good food), a few nice gifts left for us on arrival (tip - don't let anyone get to the cake tin before you!). You may not want it or it need it but the wi-fi is reliable and speedy unlike some we have experienced.

We stayed here for 1 week and had an absolutely fantastic experience. The cottage was ideal and was more than suitable for a couple or 4 people.

“Excellent find”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Small high spec relatively recently rebuilt end of terrace. Well kitted out. Nice finishings and furnishings. Great base for walking in the Western Lakes. Owners live next door but aren't intrusive. Random cakes provided which was a nice touch. Would definitely return.

“This is the place to stay!”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The Granary Escape is a wonderful place to stay. The accommodation is beautifully appointed with all the facilities of the highest standard. Our stay was only of three days but we will certainly be back. The location is ideal for visiting both the Western Lakes and the Cumbrian Coast. We would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone wanting a quality self catering holiday cottage in the area.

“A brilliant place to stay”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The Granary offers comfort, character and a view across to Skiddaw. The property has been renovated with taste and sensitivity using local slate and wood for floors and units and is attractively furnished. It's situated in the un-touristy western edge of the Lake District, which we liked and there were some wonderful walks a short drive away. Pubs and local restaurants offered a wide choice of good food. We're already planning to return.

“Absolutely brilliant!!! ”
Reviewed 18 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed for 2 nights on the first bank holiday weekend. It was a rainy weekend but it didn't matter, we had an absolutely brilliant time and we even stayed in as we loved the place that much!
The finish and feel of the place was lovely and I cannot wait to go back again.
Thankyou. xx

“Lovely stay!”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Nice touch with lovely carrot cake and walnut muffins awaiting us on our arrival.

The cottage was a lovely place to return to after our various excursions over the course of the (somewhat wet) week.

Lots of leaflets, maps and guides in the library area helped us plan our days out (also a selection of novels and dvd's); the Wifi was also very useful.

A comfortable living room, with a great telly and lovely fire; kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils and equipment needed.

There was a lovely bath and shower room and all the rooms well equipped, lovely and clean.

We would have been happy to stop for longer - still lots to see and do for another trip.
