Absolutely stunning barn conversion
By Guests From Birmingham on 13-Oct-2017
Absolutely stunning barn conversion, in a peaceful location and within easy travelling distance to lake Windermere.
The property has everything that we needed. The ground floor has a well equipped kitchen and spacious dining area. On the next floor the lounge is comfortable and cosy. There is a beautiful double bedroom a twin room and a bunk bedroom. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable.
The attention to detail and thought from the owners is spot on- we will definitely return. Thank you.
Tips for other travellers
The anglers arms is just over half a mile away and we found the service and beer very good.( we didn't eat here - but the menu looked reasonable and it was very popular)
Windermere is 25-30 minutes drive. But if you want to a more relaxed option there is the steam railway about 3 minutes drive away. We also fell in love with Cartmel just 5/6 miles away - a really quaint village
Fantastic place to stay
By Guest From Padbury on 02-Sep-2017
Fantastic place to stay, quirky in its arrangement on three levels but excellent all the same. Plenty of room , lovely to have the welcome pack surprise. Kids loved the bunk bed option and use of Netflix on the smart TV. Will defiantly come back again as location was ideal for surrounding area base.
Tips for other travellers
Very close to the local steam train station which takes you to the lakes where you can catch a boat. Also good motor museum nearby with great cafe. Plenty of pubs and places to eat within a few miles. You will easily fill a week but do your homework on TripAdvisor for things to do before you travel to help you plan activities.

Wonderful accommodation in a great location with lovely countryside views. So much to do in the local area. Highly recommended!
By Guest From Exmouth on 19-May-2017
Excellent communication from the owners throughout. Booking and payment was straight forward and regular contact made sure we knew exactly were everything was. Tips for other travellers - Easy to find from the M6 and set just a short distance from one of the main roads connecting to most of the Southern Lakes attractions. Coniston Old Man and Windermere are within easy reach as are many other very scenic areas. For those looking to tackle Scafell Pike then be prepared to drive for just over an hour. The route is stunning though. The property offers easy parking on a Minor road which passes by the property

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting. The perfect base for exploring the local area. We had a lovely time and we're sad to leave. Will be back!
Rusland Pool Hotel does nice food and has a great outdoor playground for kids. We loved hunting for the Gruffalo at Grizedale Forest and visiting the local steam railway which had a lovely cafe and shop too
Had the most wonderful time
By Guests From Liverpool on 28-Apr-2017
Had the most wonderful time at The Barns. Excellent location to explore the Southern Lakes, beautiful setting, lovely view from the garden, and the house itself is superb! Cannot speak highly enough about the property, or the owners, who are extremely helpful, responsive, and accommodating (the welcome pack was a very nice touch). Will DEFINITELY be returning. Tips for other travellers LOL, where to start? We travelled to Lake Coniston (20 mins drive) and hiked up Old Man Coniston (tough walk but my 5 year old son did it so definitely doable and the view is worth it, believe me! The town of Ulverston is a 10 min drive away which has an excellent supermarket (Booths), and while there a short walk up to Hoad Monument offers superb views of the area. Then theres Lake Windermere(again, approx 20 mins drive away) where you can hire a boat on the lake for around £30 which is well worth it(kids loved it). My last tip is this: Just go there, its awesome!
Accommodation & Service second to none
By Guest From Louth on 22-Apr-2017
Have to say that the accom and service are second to none as well as affordable excellent value. Second summer stay at the barns. So much to do and see in the area.
Had a lovely stay
By Guests From Lymm on 14-Apr-2017
Had lovely stay here - cottage was spacious and well equipped - felt very at home. Tips for other travellers - Enjoyed several walks and a bike ride at Grisedale forest. You can also get steam train to Lakeside to visit Aquarium which was good. Last day our kids were tired so we drove round to Muncaster Castle to see gardens and bird displays (owls/birds of prey and heron feeding)
By Guests From London on 03-Mar-2017
Beautiful barn, and easy to get to from the M6. The place was very clean when we arrived, with lots of space available for 6 adults. The kitchen in particular was large and well-stocked. A good number of bathrooms. I would certainly stay again, and would recommend to anyone else.
Very roomy & comfortable cottage
By Guests From Chepstow on 17-Feb-2017
Very roomy and comfortable cottage. The location is great for exploring the Southern Lakes and peninsulas. Fantastic place to come home to after busy days out. A gem.
