Every two years my rather large family head to the Lake District for a week. We are a mixed bunch - 18 in number aged 9 months to 67 years - and we need a base that will enable good access to the fells as well as places of interest for the children. Meadow View Barn was perfect. The accommodation is spacious and there is enough space to park 6 cars comfortably. It has a lovely feel - lots of oak and natural colours - that was both cosy and stylish. The location is good in that access to both the Lakes and the Dales is fairly straightforward and we were able to pack our week with activities in both locations. We were also treated to a visit to the alpacas which is an experience we won't forget in a hurry! I'm not sure that our ever expanding family will fit Meadow View Barn in two years time, but if it does we will definitely be returning. Thank you so much for a brilliant stay.
Absolutely amazing place to stay for my friends hen weekend. Every single one of us loved it. The barn was so spacious and very clean with great little touches.
Wendy and Joe were brilliant, so welcoming.
Letting us get to see and feed the alpacas was a great experience which we loved.
We hired a hot tub from Cumbria hot tub hire and it was well worth it.
I would highly recommend this place to stay, and I would definitely like to return again.
Thanks again Wendy and Joe for our great stay.
Just had a great weekend at Meadow View Barn for my daughters hen party. There was ample space for 15 hens. The cottage has everything you could ask for and is very well presented, with little added touches that make it personal. The highlight of the weekend was our date with the Alpacas where we could feed and touch them. They are so friendly.
We had a Tesco delivery at the cottage which was great. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, and they assisted with many email requests before our stay. We hired hot tubs from Cumbria Hot Tubs which were ready to use on our arrival.
Everyone who came has left with many happy memories of the weekend. I would highly recommend this cottage if you're looking for a 5 star holiday break.

Just spent the weekend of 20-22 May here for my daughters hen do along with 15 "hens". The setting and facilities were outstanding and of a very high standard. The tour of the alpacas by the very friendly owners was an unbelievable bonus. Highly recommend all round.
Recently spent the weekend at Meadowview barn on my hen do.
The house is fantastic, it exceeded expectations. All the rooms were spacious and the house had everything we needed. The house was also very clean.
We arranged a Tesco delivery for when we arrived which was hassle free.
A highlight was being shown the alpacas and being allowed to feed them. Jennifer was great; spending time with us and telling us all about them. We could see how passionate she was about them.
The owners were very easy and friendly to deal with; responding to emails quickly.
Would recommend Simgill farm to any groups wanting high quality accommodation.
My family, (8 adults and 4 grandkids) descended on Meadow View Barn for the Glasgow September Weekend. This converted barn was stunning. Beautifully decorated and very well appointed. It had everything you could possibly want for a self catering holiday. The owners, Joe & Wendy were very pleasant people, who even took time out of their very busy working schedule, to let my grandkids feed the Alpacas and tell us all about them. The property is not too far from Bowness on Windermere, which opens up all sorts of activities, and Kendal. A great time was had by all and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to my family and friends. I honestly hope to have the opportunity to return there in the not too distant future.
Great property - would recommend to anyone - was just as good as the pictures if not better!
and alapaca feeding finished the weekend off nicely! Everyone of our 17 hen party group very happy!! Thank you
