All round excellent base for a holiday. The weather was reasonably good, so we didn't have to put heating and wood burner to the test. Can imagine it's very cosy in winter. The barn and its garden are very nice, but there's is not much in the immediate locality. Broughton in Furness is a little over a mile but you really need to drive to avoid walking on busy roads. On the other hand, the location is excellent for easy access to various parts of the district - the western Lake District via Eskdale, the central Lake District via Coniston, the beach, and Barrow in Furness, which has some interesting places to see and visit.

Hi Michael, thank you for your comments - it sounds like you had a great time exploring the county. You're right, Barrow does have some really interesting corner to explore! Come back and see us again soon!

Poured most of the four days following Ciara and Dennis storms, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Not affected by flooding. Very spacious, clean and high spec. Great walks in the hills and woods adjacent to the cottage. My kind of pubs in Broughton only 1.5 miles away, also friendly butcher/grocers there. It is a town that time has passed by. Would definitely stay at this cottage again.

Hello Eric, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It's a gem of a cottage, isn't it? Aww, shame about the weather, however, I'm thrilled the cottage more than made up for it. You couldn't have picked a better location for getting out and about on some great walks. You just can't beat a pub close by on holiday, be it for a drink or some delicious pub grub. Come back any time, you can be sure of a very warm welcome.

Fantastic venue for a quiet relaxing weekend away with friends. Local towns not much to do so car journey is needed. Would definitely book again!
