We had everything we needed on arrival with instructions on using the hot-tub. What we like most was the space and layout of the property, very light and airy with great views. Ulverston had nice shops and the Farmers' Arms restaurant was great. We liked the location quiet without being miles away from town. But didn't like having to drive on some muddy roads to get there. The directions caused some problems due the signage in town but once you got Hill Side Barn, it was well worth it.
We would definitely stay there again. It was one of the best properties we've stayed in.
Absolutely lovely week.

The house was gorgeous. Very modern, well equipped and very clean and tidy.
The welcome pack was excellent and the overall organisation of the whole holiday was excellent, from instructions to the local amenities.

The cottage was very well appointed with everything we needed in a beautiful location. It was a short drive to the local town but was so quiet and peaceful with just the sound of the sheep and the cows chewing grass. Fantastic to have the hot tub to come home to at the end of the day and this was the icing on the cake. Would recommend and would definately return ourselves in the future.
a peaceful and relaxing break

This was one of the best holiday cottages i have ever stayed in. only two miles from ulverston but we could have been anywhere in the depths of the country.
It was furnished beautifully, everything was clean and seemingly new.There was everything you could possibly need in the kitchen which was a delight to cook in--being part of the one large open plan room.
The highlight for us was the outside hot tub, this was amazing on a freezing January night---we sat in it for hours with the obligatory glass of wine.
The resident dog was a delight---he wandered in, decided whether our tea was better than his, then finding it wasn't---went away --but called next day to check out breakfast.
Altogether we loved it and will certainly go back next year. Probably in the winter months as I expect the summer holidays could get quite busy.

Perfect family retreat

Excellent choice for a family celebration. Owners very friendly and helpful. Barn lovely throughout with beautiful furnishings. Many thoughtful extras. Loved the wood burner and open plan living. Excellent location and the single track road was even passable in the snow! The barn is child friendly with a safety gate on the stairs.Would love to return to this cosy barn.

Great place to celebrate a birthday

2nd time we have visited, and we thoroughly enjopyed ourselves. The outside spa was the reason we had booked and this was excellent although it did take a bit of effort to go out to it on the Saturday night when it was raining.
Inside they had refurbishjed the bathroom and this was a good improvement.
The fire in the main living area was not really required but we used it anyway because it was nice to have a log fire.
We all enjoy cooking so we made sure that we brought utensils we thought we might need, one area where we felt there could be an improvement.

Hill Side Barn - Great Place to stay

I would recommend this place for other people to stay if they want to get away from it all but be able to travel to areas within the Lake District. The hot tub was also a greated added feature. We had a great stay.

The cottage is very modern and had everything we needed. It was in a great location if you needed anything from the shop as it was only 5 minute drive and also the locals are friendly. Will bhopefully be re-visiting in the future and would definately recommend to friends and family.
The Knowles Party
Newcastle Upon Tyne
5 Star property - We did'nt want to leave
Left on 12/03/2009 for a stay in September 2009 | The Knowles Party
The property was everything we could have wished for. The amenities throughout were superb.
Outside we had the bonus of the hottub and barbeque. The barn was far enough out of Ulverston for peace and quiet, but not too far if we wanted a newspaper.
There was 6 adults in our party and we weren't falling over each other.
None of us were ready to leave and wished we'd had another week.
We have recommended this property to family and friends
