About Sarah E

My family and I bought this property because we love Barbon, Kirkby Lonsdale and the surrounding areas and one day hope to live there! But in the meantime we wanted other people to enjoy it too. We are Cumbrian born and bred so feel free to ask any questions you might have about the area and we will try to help! Thanks - Sarah x

Why Sarah E chose Carnforth

Filled with charming original features yet fully modernised, Hilltop is in such a superb location. Barbon village is a real gem! The Barbon Inn and the Churchmouse Cafe & Deli are both fantastic establishments and there is so much to do without even getting in the car.

What makes this cottage unique

Beautifully presented (even if we do say so ourself) yet unstuffy, perfect for couples or families alike. Walkers, ramblers, cyclists, foodies and everyone in between will enjoy this cottage and the local area.

One of the most amazing cottages we have stayed in

  • 5 of 5

I can not stress enough how great this cottage and the location it is in is .

It is in a charming little village with a proper old stile pub which serves some of the best pub/restaurant food I have eaten, and only couple of minutes walk back after a pint or two.

The cottage itself is total modern inside with that country cottage feel and has every conservable thing you would need in it and some of the most comfy beds we have slept in.

The cottage was supper clean and immaculate inside with lovely kept garden to have a drink in after a hard days sight seeing.

Sarah E could not have been more helpful throughout and we would have no hesitation staying there again ,I thoroughly enjoyable stay

Cosy home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for three nights, mainly to attend a wedding in Barbon but made a weekend of it because it was also our own Anniversary. The cottage is lovely and was just right for a cosy weekend for the two of us, but with two double bedrooms could easily accommodate four people. Everything's well laid out and nicely decorated and the interior retains many original features. I'd recommend without hesitation, particularly for anyone wanting a base from which to explore the Lake District and/or the Yorkshire Dales. The local pub, the Barbon Inn, is well worth a visit, too - good beer, good food and welcoming service.

Lovely property

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property and ideal location for exploring the West side of the dales. The house has been really well maintained, good space for four adults, very comfortable lounge and the bonus of a short walk to the pub. A great stay.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely three night break over New Years Eve. The cottage is cosy, well equipped and charming. We enjoyed walking across to the local village pub where we met friendly locals and enjoyed a good meal. The goodie basket that was left was a nice touch. I’d definately recommend this cottage. Thanks x

Fabulous cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from spending 4 days over Christmas at this lovely cottage. We really couldn't fault anything and they had even put some Xmas decorations up which made it feel even more cosy. The village itself is nice and quiet though obviously popular for walkers as is the village pub, the Barbon Inn where we found the staff very friendly and helpful ( the food also good !). We would certainly recommend this cottage and hope to return ourselves one day.
