Lovely village, great accommodation and superbly located for holiday exploration. Suitable for all ages, I have two boys aged 4 and 12 who loved the area (particularly Mambo the parrot). Highly recommended for a quiet family break.
fantastic relaxing location

Myself, my husband, our 3 boys and dog stayed at The Old Byre and had a wonderful holiday. The location was perfect and the cottage was a home from home with clear directions and key collection instructions sent prior to stay.

Second visit to The Old Byre. Spacious, nice and warm - especially with the log burner. Private and peaceful village location, friendly locals, cottage full of character and an excellent c/h system and power shower. Central for both N Lakes and N Pennines. Bit basic on kitchen utensils but all there. Will go again!

A great place for the snow Easter break this year. Everything was well presented, of good quality and an ideal for exploring the Eden valley, North Lakes and the Howgills.
We had to forage for timber to burn on the log burner as the previous visitors had used all the supplies.
Recycling advice needs to be revised into a concise "what to put where" but otherwise a great place to stay.

We had a great time with you. The cottage was really very pretty and in an easy to reach location near enough to the main routes but nicely just off the beaten track. We can't fault our holiday. Thank you very much.

When we read some of the previous reviews there were issues regarding the cleanliness,this was immediatly dispelled when we arrived. The occomodation is naturally rustic but fully equipted,with the open plan Kitchen having everything you could possibly need, the bedrooms are huge and this would easily occomodate sleeping 6, with the smaller room downstairs being a childrens/teens room with 2 single beds and even a PS2.
The village of Sandford is delightfully quiet,just what we wanted,ideal for walking the dog or going for an early evening stroll down the lanes.
We ate in the Sandford arms a couple of times,Food is excellent although its more aimed at being a restaurant than a village pub,which in present times is understandable.There are also delightful pubs in nearby appleby which is only 10/15 mins away by car.
We used this as a base to explore the lakes and the Yorkshire Dales,travel to which is a maximum of about an hour away by car,but to be honest the scenery is so nice its a pleasure to travel.
Also can recommend the Settle/Carlisle line for the scenery,travelled to Settle and back for the day,although the town itself is quite small.
All in all we had an excellent stay and would recommend the Old Byre to anyone wanting a break away from the rat race.
Beautiful cottage, pity it hadn't been cleaned prior to our arri

Loved the cottage, absolutely stunning. Lovely surrounding countryside. Great pub a two minute walk. Would have been perfect except it had not been cleaned from previous guests so had to wash and dry all bedding and clean up on arrival. Despite two emails and a phone call we received no apology so regrettably will not be rebooking.

A very relaxing and peaceful stay

This cottage is in a lovely quiet area, it was very relaxing and peaceful.
The cottage itself was lovely, we fell in love with the log fire- It made the cottage have a lovely warm and cosey feel.
Their is not a lot to do around this cottage eg places to eat etc but as we went for a relaxing break with the dog it was great!
Truly great building with excellent location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay... Complete with open fire and availability to bring my dog. The bathroom facilities were top of the range which doesn't sound much, but after a long walk the luxuorious bath was needed!
I would say If either of the two electrical fly killers had been working this would have eliminated the fly problem and completed our stay.
