“Fab break!!”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2014

We ( 2 adults and 2 boys) went and stayed late December for a 3 night break over the New Year. The cottage was equipped with everything we would need. The wood burning stove was lovely and cosy after a walk out. Could not fault in anyway. We all had a wonderful time!!

“Just what we wanted.”

Fully equipped cottage in a beautiful area, a little remote but that suited us and our dog. Keswick 12 miles away, blissfully quiet, well equipped kitchen. Would have no hesitation in staying again.

Barn Roost was a fantastic base to explore the northern Lakes. Beautiful cottage in a peaceful location. Absolutely loved our stay and would definitely return.

“Nice place...but”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2013

When I initially was looking for a cottage to rent in the Lake District, I dismissed Barn Roost as it was a little isolated and too far north. Unfortunately, a slip of the finger meant that I booked it and I didint realise until far too late. The cottage itself is really only suitable for a family as it only has one double bed and some bunk beds which was a bit of a shock (I know... I should have read the full listing! We were three adults and I can tell you from bitter experience, that the lower bunk is flaming uncomfortable. Other than that the general accomodation is ok but is let down by having a £5 tv that only worked on the DVD player (after trial and error, the problem is with the Freeview box as it does not send a sound channel. Come on guys, for £600 a week, you could upgrade the awful TV. Hint. Attaching it to the wall and putting up some floating shelves would make the sitting room a lot bigger. Without doubt, the saving grace was the excellent WiFi coverage, as we all had iPads. Might be usefeul to promulgate the password though as not everybody knows its on the bottom of the router.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review on Barn Roost. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at this very popular property. I have discussed your concerns with the owner of the property and can now respond as follows. The property is a Grade 2 listed building and as such the owner has to respect its character. It is advertised as one double and one bunk bed and the interior is in a classic cottage style. The problem with the TV was identified as a loose scart cable, which once plugged back into the rear of the TV rectified this issue. We can confirm that the password for the Wi Fi is located under the router and in the front of the guest information folder. The owners undertake regular visits to the property and upgrade all faulty or outdated equipment. Our company and the owner take feedback very serious and react upon what we receive quickly, had we been informed of this issue during your stay we would have acted immediately to rectify any problems you may have had. We hope that the issues raised did not detract from your enjoyment of the Lake District and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

“Great Cottage”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2013

Great cottage, great location. Had everything we needed. The rural location was a bonus. Will definitely go back, next time for longer.

“a very cosy cottage in a quiet location”

Reviewed 24 May 2013

Ideal for exploring the northern lake district.The cottage is fitted with quality fuature and fittings throughout and very well equipped.The only negative was the smell from the oil fired boiler in the conservatory which spread through the property.The owner says that this has been checked but you would not put up with this in your own property.I suppose this is not a problem in the warmer weather when the boiler would not be used. Would certainly consider returning.

“Absolutely beautiful cottage, relaxing to come back to after a d”

Reviewed 31 Jan 2013

Very tranquil location perfect if you don't want any hussle or bustle. Beautiful cottage, short walk away from the pub if you do fancy a drink in the evening. We went in January after the snow so one day we were completely house bound but it was extremely nice in this cosy cottage to be stuck. Good value as it was out of season.

“Lovely cottage!”

Reviewed 17 Jan 2013

We really enjoyed our week at Barn Roost, it was warm, comfortable and well equippedv- great for two adults and 3 dogs - we had loads of great walks and cost evenings in. The conservatory made drying off soggy dogs easy and the laminate flooring was easy to keep clean in the rainy weather. Immaculately clean throughout. The second bedroom would be ideally suited to children, it's got lovely wooden bunks and the courtyard garden would be great in the summer. Room to park one car in front too.


Reviewed 29 Nov 2012

It was a perfect getaway for me, the wife and our dog meg for a long weekend of walks and snuggling by the fire. We would definitely visit this property again, in fact we are already planning to go there at some point in 2013.
