Set mainly over the first floor, this one bedroomed property sleeps two and offers a perfect base for the Lakes and Dales. With accommodation spread over the first floor of a detached, traditional converted barn in beautiful countryside, this charming property in the hamlet of New Hutton makes a sympathetically converted and well equipped holiday home. There are original features that have been retained in the property, such as crook beams and exposed stonework, and the gothic-style bedroom adds to the charm of the cottage. Outside is a garden with furniture and BBQ, while the local pub is just a 10 minute stroll away. Both the Dales and the... southern Lakes can be easily reached, as can the town of Kendal.

Town: The small hamlet of New Hutton, set in lovely countryside, makes a quiet and convenient base for getting to know both the southern Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales. There is plenty to see and do in this popular holiday area, with both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall, with its impressive topiary gardens nearby, as well as the town of Kendal, with its castle, art gallery and shops and restaurants set off cobbled streets. The walking in this area is superb, including limestone escarpments offering gentle walks and thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay.

We stayed in this cottage for a week and would have been delighted to stay for the summer; shame about work commitments! The owners were welcoming and helpful, but not imposing, and the cottage was delightful. Excellent location for walks in/visits to the Lake District, Howgills, Yorkshire Dales, and Morecambe Bay. Comfortable and well-equipped cottage, with very efficient central-heating, and safe off-road parking. One of the best cottages we have stayed in and would thoroughly recommend. We hope to return there soon...
Convenient and quiet location with good facilities nearby.

There was a warm welcome awaiting us at Hollins Farm Barn. As a gay couple this is important and made us feel very welcome from the outset. The first floor accommodation is nicely decorated with original beams and well-furnished with all the facilities you could need. There are nice views of the countryside and a pretty garden for sitting out in clement weather. There was plenty of space for storage of bikes and outdoor gear downstairs in the utility area. There were lots of books, guides, CDs and DVDs as well as free wifi. The heating and hot water was more than adequate, but would have benefitted from a programable timer. On the whole, the accommodation was very comfortable, although the bed would benefit from a better quality mattress. Overall this is a lovely place in a good location and good value.

Beautifully placed to gain access to the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, plus the Borders area. Easy access to the M6, and Kendal for shopping, yet quiet with nice views.
Friendly and helpful owners make it an excellent stay.

The barn was furbished to a high standard and filled with everything you would need for a self catering holiday. It is situated in a prime location just a mile from Kendal, close enough to be near the action but far enough away that you feel secluded and peaceful when there. The owners where very friendly and helpful and we would recommend the stay to anyone!
