Lovely barn conversion, ideal for families and groups of friends

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a family get together in this very spacious barn conversion. Good pub right next door and Northen Lakes easily accessible. Lovely sunny corner at the front to have breakfast outside and a little garden area at the back as well.

Not enough showers or toilets. Very cold, thin duvets, cooker knobs didn't have any markings

  • 3 of 5

I have rented loads of cottages although it's spacious it needed more attention to detail . We didn't know the temperature of the oven. There wasn't any spare blankets. One very small en suite and a basic over head shower/bath. Even the hand soap was half used. A new one is more hygienic. Lots of space for kids though a toddler just walking could find it quite tricky. It is a very clean cottage, well equipped kitchen and loads of information about the local area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are sorry that you found the Barn cold - we do leave heating control to our guests' preference and it has always been found to be very responsive. There are additional duvets under the beds, but we will ensure these are more clearly signposted for future guests. Thank you for letting us know about the oven controls, we will get this sorted immediately. Thank you also for noting the cleanliness of the Barn, we will pass this to our cleaner who does a fabulous job in a property of this size. Kind regards.

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.
