The replacement of the bath with a shower is a great improvement as is the new cooker. Wonderful location for wildlife and wild flower meadows. Great to hear the Cuckcoo again.

Hi Gerry, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so glad you appreciated the improvements. The location is perfect for getting out amongst nature isn't it? Until next time.

We have been coming to The Barn for over 20 years now because it's exactly what is described - a lovely, peaceful place to unwind. There is no internet and you probably won't get a phone signal unless you walk at least halfway up the nearest hill, but if you want a total escape from the everyday pressure of life, it's perfect. Although it seems remote once you get there, it's only a short drive into Kendal which has all the shops and facilities you might need.
The Barn is warm, comfortable and well equipped and in the most beautiful location. It makes a perfect base for exploring more of the Lake District or just sitting on the patio next to the River Sprint watching the wildlife and enjoying the peace and quiet. If you're feeling energetic, it's possible to do several good walks from The Barn without having to get in your car. Longsleddale is a gorgeous valley which never alters from year to year which, in these days of constant change, is fairly unique.
If you're interested in wildlife, during our stay in the valley we saw buzzards, kestrels (which had a nest nearby), a stoat, roe deer, red deer, and otters to name but a few.
So if you want an escape from real life and you're happy to leave the phone, internet, etc, behind you, just for a week or two, we highly recommend The Barn. It's lovely.
