Just returned from a long weekend at the Barn. A really nice find! Great location for a short journey to a quieter section of the lakes. We had a party of 6 and we felt the size of the social areas were therefore really good...I couldn’t have imagined having a full 12 as there was just enough sofa seating for 6. Great to find access to full Sky Tv package (sports and movies) and the hot tub was really nice after some active days in the hills. Good showers, plenty of heat throughout the building and plenty of plates and glass in the kitchen. Nice pub a short walk away in a quiet valley away from the crowds.

Considering there appeared to be improvements being made to an adjoined building, the barn did seemed very dated with some loose curtain fitting, old tv’s that didn’t work in bedrooms (with VHS). I’m not convinced all the ovens were fully working but we made it work. Some of the ceiling paper was falling down, it appeared to be in need for an update throughout.

Overall, very happy. Plenty of space for our smaller group of active people. We as a group would definitely come again but would have to consider other accommodation with a larger group or significant others.

Hi Lynne, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your break at The Barn. It's the perfect place for a get together with family or friends isn't it? I hope you enjoyed exploring this stunning part of the Lakes. Until next time!

Absolutely lovely long weekend with the whole family and 2 dogs. Hot tub really enjoyed by all! The decor is a bit dated but it adds to the character of the rustic barn! Plenty of fridge and freezer space. Local pub 20min walk away. Not got sky multiroom but really this didn’t matter as we were enjoying quality time together! Sky package in the lounge was great! Agree not quite enough seating for everyone so we took some camping chairs which helped! Only advice I’d have for future travellers is take plenty of toilet roll! We walked to the shop which shut early on sundays! Absolutely wonderful weekend, would definitely come again.

Hi Laura, thanks for taking the time to write a review. It sounds like you had a great time at The Barn. It's the perfect place to get away from it all isn't it? I hope you enjoyed exploring, I bet the dogs were in their element! What a treat to come home and chill in the hot tub! I hope you can come back again soon, you can be sure of a warm welcome.
