Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just finished our week's holiday at your lovely house. It has to have been one of the best self-catering places we've ever stayed at. My three grandsons were enchanted by the mousehole. But even without that it was a lovely place and so many thoughtful touches. Have been to the Lakes many times over the years yet never visited Stainton which proved an ideal centre. My thanks to you for a great holiday.



With 2 members of our party under 6, the hidden play-loft was a fantastic surprise. We loved the social space in the kitchen



We have lots of happy memories of our lovely holiday in the Lakes and will always remember Dacre Garth with great pleasure. It's so beautiful and comfortable. Many sincere Thanks again for everything!”



I wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed our stay ...it was perfect for us, and we really appreciated how well equipped it was, as well as the thoughtful touches like the flowers and tea tray! I have already recommended it to friends

Beautiful, spacious cottage!

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we received a complimentary pack of treats, which gave our holiday a very good start. The cottage was much more spacious than expected for 8 people we had lots of space and enjoyed hanging out in the communal areas. Next to the cottage is a pub wnich does delicious home-made food. Also down the road is a restaurant which does amazing food too! My friends and I explored the waterfalls near Ullswater which I would highly recommend doing. Overall we had a great time at this cottage in a good location and lots of lovely places to eat. Would definitely return!

An ideal location

  • 4 of 5

We booked a last minute break at Dacre Garth. It was just 2 of us for 2 nights and additional family for the 3rd. The cottage was ideal for small and larger groups - very well maintained (inc new carpets) and a good flow of hot water. Kitchen was very well equipped.

The barn conversion gives character

Location is ideal for Ullswater/Penrith, and easy to get to being a few minutes from the M6

Perfect Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

A great property for a family holiday - with any age of children! Great location for exploring the Eastern side of the Lake District - with some hidden gems to the East of Ullswater, as well as an awesome route up to Hellvellyn via Striding Edge. And then the perfect place to come home, relax in the deep tub and sink a pint or two in front of the fire ...

A truly wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Dacre Garth and it won't be our last. We knew from the pictures it looked a beautiful place to stay however when we walked in it was even better than we had imagined. The welcome was wonderfully warm with tea, coffee and biscuits set out tougher with a fruit. The layout of Dacre Garth left us wanting for nothing at all, it is beautifully decorated with gorgeous mood lighting, spacious with hideaways and tremendous character. The location is perfect with many amenities close by and yet it is so peaceful and quiet so we could get away and leave the world behind us for a few days and enjoy the delights of the Lake District. Dreams do indeed come true.

Owner's Response: We are really pleased that you enjoyed your first stay at Dacre Garth. Having stayed in many holiday cottages ourselves, we were keen to ensure that the Barn was as well-equipped as possible to make family holidays easier. Thank you for your kind comments - we hope to welcome you again in the future.
