Very Good

“Like being at home”

Reviewed 8 Dec 2012

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.”

Reviewed 12 Dec 2011

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.

“Beautiful location”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2011

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”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2011

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”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2011

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”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2011

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”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2010

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.

“Absolutley stunning place”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2010

Everything about this cottage was stunning, it was in a great peaceful location with plenty of things around to do if you fancy a day out. The owners were very friendly and always helpful if help was needed. The cottage was in great condition very clean and spacious! We had a lovely time there and would recomend it to everyone.

“Very homely and comfortable also in a great location”

Reviewed 22 Dec 2009

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.
