The property was very clean and excellently presented. A couple of minor issues like plug in bathroom sink not staying in and unable to switch towel rail on in bathroom or drying room which had a musty smell when fan off. But saying that it is a beautiful location, local people very nice and friendly, lovely view and I would recommend a stay there to anyone. Did think £20 per dog was quite a lot as we were to make sure there was no sign of them having been there.

The cottage is well equipped with all you should need for a break, clean and tidy, with neutral decor, bedrooms/bathrooms lovely. It is in a fantastic location with many lovely walks on the door step. Nearest village shop in Langwathby approx 4 miles, good food in the Shepherd Inn pub. Friendly and helpful locals.

We had a lovely comfortable stay in this very well equipped barn,the downstairs cloakroom/drying room was really useful,the woodburning stove was really cosy on a chilly evening.We could not fault it and would highly recommend it and would be more than happy to stay there again.

This barn conversion looks like it has only just been finished and to the highest quality too. The furnishings are top quality, this well layer out and with underfloor heating we didn't need to light the log burner despite the snow falling outside!
The views are stunning right around the barn and it's so peaceful. Lovely walks from the door and a short car trip to Penrith.
Definitely recommend this for a lovely quiet break in a beautifully thought through barn conversion

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautifully restored barn. All the rooms were really lovely, our only criticism was that it was too warm for us even with no heating on! It is situated in the countryside with spectacular views from all windows. Even though it is in a remote spot, the road to Penrith, which is about 10 miles away was good and caused no problems. Plenty of shops and supermarkets in Penrith for stocking up with food and drink. We had pretty awful weather but still walked and explored and our dogs loved it!

Lovely property, very well equipped and appointed but becoming very tired. Cracked tiles on bathroom floors, part repaired patches in living area ceiling, very dusty, lots of cobwebs especially around light fittings and velux windows. The smoke detecters are extremely sensitive, could not even make toast without setting them off. The lid of the teapot was jammed in the neck of the pot so unable to use. To continually find new mice droppings on a daily basis was rather unpleasant. To then be paired with a couple in the adjoining barn who just opened their door to let their dogs out, usually unsupervised,a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and a Whippet, was some what unpleasant. The volume of dog mess that was created, that we cleaned up on a regular basis was very annoying and dissapointing.
