Our hosts, Howard & Catherine, were most welcoming. The accommodation and facilities were excellent. We understand that because this was a barn conversion there may be some quirky features eg floor levels which played havoc with my wife's balance (she suffers from labyrinthitis). Even though there were no shops etc, Skirwith is not that far from Langwathby and Penrith. There are plenty of places to visit in the vicinity, favourites were Acorn Bank House and Gardens, Long Meg & Her Daughters and Little Salkeld Mill. If you wanted to go further afield get a train from Langwathby Station on the Carlisle to Leeds line.
