This property met our very specific needs. We were meeting relations coming from the North and needed to be close to the M6 in case of bad weather. We also needed two bathrooms. We booked very late and still can't believe our luck in finding this lovely place. The photos don't do it justice. It has been beautifully restored in a way which combines the best of the old and new. All the fittings are high quality and the two en-suite bathrooms are 5* hotel quality.
The hosts are lovely people who were helpful and friendly but respected our privacy as well. There was a cream tea, fresh eggs and flowers to welcome us and plenty of local information. Outside, the garden with hens and sheep and a small stream is delightful.
The location is very convenient for Kendal and the Southern lakes. Also the Dales Way passes through the property so you could walk from the door. The Yorkshire Fells are very accessible from this location but we didn't have time to do them justice on this occasion.
We would fully recommend this property as we feel it is of exceptional quality.
The most amazing experience
Left on 01/16/2014 for a stay in December 2013 | Paul
We had the most amazing time at Grayrigg. As soon as we got there after a long tiring journey from London, we were welcomed with a roaring log fire, home made mince pies and flapjacks. The owners couldn't be more welcoming and the cottage is so beautiful (the pictures don't do this wonderful place justice) and the setting picturesque... I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and hopefully will return ourselves. Read more

Excellent in all aspects really, and the weather was perfect which was a bonus! Great location, especially if, like us, you are interested in visiting the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. Only a few minutes drive to the motorway as well which was an added bonus at times.
The owners (next door) were very friendly and helpful and the cottage (an old converted stable) could not really be faulted. Great facilities and all very tastefully decorated and equipped. Would definitely recommend and given the chance would stay there again...

Greeted on arrival by the most wonderful owners of an exceptional property. Freshly home cooked scones with jam and cream and flapjacks to welcome us on arrival beautifully presented. Well renovated building with great attention to quality in all provisions.Close to town of Kendal but very tranquil countryside location. Very suitable for visiting places of interest in the Lake District. Felt very privilledged to have found this beautiful property and will return.
Everything you want in a holiday cottage

My wife and I arrived to a lovely welcome by Christine and David. There were home made sconesw with jam, tea/coffee and home made biscuits waiting for us. The cottage had everything anyone could want on a holiday, even down to supplying hand cream in the bathrooms. The cottage is new and everything provided appeared to be to a high standard. Out the back we had a babbling brook, with chickens marooned across a small bridge on the far side. Close by was a field with more chickens, sheep and cows (no not smelly at all!). At night we could watch, out of the living room window,the sheep and cows trudge across the small hill above the barn, as they went off to settle down for the night. We normally eat out every evening when staying in a cottage. Not this place! We loved eating in at the dining table or outside listening to the lovely ripple of water running close by and watching the chickens busily going about their silly business. Blissful holiday cottage.

Fantastic place to stay. Accommodation looked just like the photos - everything was of high quality and well-finished. Would not hesitate to return again. Fresh eggs in the morning were an added bonus! Great location, only 4 miles from Kendal.
What a welcome!!

A beautiful property and what a welcome!!
There were cookies, rice-crispie cakes, tea, coffee, etc. and everything you could possibly need.
Most things brand new, very clean and cosy.
The underfloor heating was a great success with the kids and the grownups liked the woodburning stove in the evenings.
Altogether we had a lovely weekend and would recommend the property to anyone.

Had a wonderful holiday at Grayrigg Foot Stable. Myself, my husband and parents spent 5 nights in this beautiful barn conversion just outside of Kendal. Although the weather was mainly terrible, this made the cottage and it's wood burning stove even more enjoyable. Everything has been done to the highest standard and the cottage is very spacious.
We managed to get out for walks in the local area, trips to Kendal and up to ambleside for the day.
Would strongly recommend this cottage.
Home from home and more!

This is truely 5* accommodation and the owners who live next door can't do enough for you.
Fresh eggs from their own chickens, scones jam and cream and fresh fruit all there waiting for us on our arrival.
Being close to Kendal the Lakes are only a short drive away as are the Dales.
You will not want to leave this beautiful farm house and garden.
Have already recommended this accommodation to all our friends and family.

One of the best holiday homes we have ever stayed in over the last 40 years. The owners go out of their way to ensure your stay is comfortable and everything you hoped it would be. The property is stunning with everything you need to make your stay as relaxing as possible from the quality of the furnishings to the open countryside views that the Lakelands provides. The only problem that we found was that our week went far too quickly.
Great cottage, lovely location, brilliant week

Booked this cottage after looking at the reviews and photos. Have to say the photos do not do justice to this fabulous cottage.
Arrived on Friday afternoon to a very warm welcome from David and Christine and home baked goodies. The cottage is very spacious and furnished to a high specification. The ground floor is open plan with lovely comfy sofas and a wood burning stove - unfortunately it was too warm to light it so will have to make a return trip in the winter! The cottage overlooks fields with cows, sheep and chickens - fresh eggs for breakfast and there is a pretty garden with a stream at the bottom.
The cottage is outside the Lake District National Park but it is close to Kendal which has a range of high street shops such as M&S;, Whsmith and Boots, plus Booths Supermarket and lots of independent shops. It is only a 20 minute drive to Windermere and the Lake District proper and it is also easy to reach the Yorkshire Dales as well.
Overall fabulous accommodation in a lovely location.
