Absolutely wonderful stay at Barrony Cottage. Well equipped, we wanted for nothing. The fire was a highlight - my husband absolutely loved it. Beautiful bedrooms. We had an issue with the shower during our stay and the owners were absolutely fantastic, responding quickly and sorting a fix fast. Had some lovely days out and meals in the local area -Read more was brilliantly placed for accessing the lakes. The best part was the cows that walk past in the morning - my daughter waited by the window for them Hide

The cottage is nicely positioned in a quiet village near the tea room/gallery which was excellent. The accommodation was clean and comfortable with exposed beams. There are walking options from the door to the Cumbria Way and plenty of other walks a short drive away. I can also recommend the Black Lion in Ireby for eating out.

Lovely cosy cottage and fairly well equipped. Just needed matches and more hand soap. Location great for Skiddaw, Keswick and Whinlatter Forest. Enjoyed the log burner. Nice modern interior with period features. It was nice chatting to and helping Johnny, the farmer, and his wife milk the cows. Very friendly villagers. Snooty Fox very underwhelmingRead more. Owner a little strange and the food was very overpriced for what it is. Can recommend the Sun Inn at Bassenthwaite and Maes Tea Rooms, also. Hide

Very comfortable cottage in a more remote and less crowded area of the Lake District. We found it to be an ideal size for the two of us and our dog. When open - need to check - the local pub, The Snooty Fox, is great for value for money meals and is a two minute stroll from the cottage.

This is a really comfortable cottage in a great location for the northern fells. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed -I would recommend this cottage to stay in.

Barrony is a beautiful cottage set in stunning Lake District scenery. It is extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean - a real home from home. The cottage is perfectly located for visiting the many attractions the Lake District has to offer.
