Currently staying here with friends and family. The place is great. Very clean. Free view tv and wifi. Please note it is very isolated the nearest pub is around 20 mins walk away. You will need a torch when walking back as it is very dark. The road to the barn is not the best. Also be aware that the floor creaks a great deal. Did not bother us but could annoy others. Ideally situated between Penrith and Keswick. Will come back when revisiting the area. Also note dogs are welcome.
Take me back now please........ This lovely barn conversion was just simply perfect. Lots of space very clean and in such beautiful surroundings. This place just felt very homely and safe to the point where it was nice to let the kids go off and explore. The local farm dog and cat became very close friends during our stay with us all to add to the homely feel. I will definitely be going back to stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone especially family's. The sportsman inn at the bottom of the farmers fields is a really lovely pub with good food and drinks, and there is also a farm shop nearby which we used for steak and gluten free sausages which were amazing. It's only a 10 min drive to Penrith where there is a morrisons and a booths supermarket and a recycle centre. If you want a lovely peaceful break I couldn't recommend this place any higher.
We had such a marvellous holiday, and that was generally down to the comfort of our barn! The place needed one or two bits touching up but I imagine these things are refreshed after the tourist season and we came quite late in the year.
We just loved it, the beds were very comfortable, the facilities were great. We laughed and smiled a lot.
Also, the little farm dog and cat made our stay even more enjoyable x
The Old Barn is a great home from home! it's clean, well-stocked with crockery and cutlery, is warm and comfortable and has all your basic needs covered! We (myself, husband and teenage children) loved the open plan living area, and loved that it was upstairs so we could enjoy the view) and the beds were very comfy.
The barn is situated at the end of a lane, that is easily travelled, and it is peaceful and quiet. Although the barn is located in the middle of the countryside, it is only a short car journey to Keswick and Penrith. Ullswater is also close by, as is Windermere and Grasmere - the perfect location to explore the Lake District.
The owner is happy to help with any problems that may arise and was professional and friendly in all communication.
We would definitely go back and will be telling all of our friends, especially the ones with dogs as dogs are welcome! Thank you for letting your barn to us - we had a great time! :)
We stayed for a family weekend here. It was great. There are also 2 other properties next to this one from this owner which we rented too (big family) .
The barn has a large lounge/diner/kitchen area, it's perfect for a small or large group of people. Very clean and the surroundings were beautiful! Short distance from lakes. So quiet and peaceful here!
Wow we love this place. The Lake District is beautiful and this Barn Conversion is a fabulous place for family or a few friends to relax in. Comfortable beds and a lovely open plan upstairs living room withy well equipped kitchen & large dining table.
