Excellent spacious base with good facilities, ideal for exploring Lakes and Eden Valley with dogs.

  • 4 of 5

All arrangements went to plan and we received a warm welcome from Kenton. There was also a bottle of wine ready on the table much enjoyed during our birthday celebrations over the weekend. Booking is very flexible which was brilliant as we only wanted a two night stay over the weekend (Sat and Sun). Our party consisted of 4 adults and 2 border collies. The accommodation was ideal for all. Both bedrooms were spacious, one with a good ensuite and the other next to a roomy family bathroom - so no waiting for the bathroom in the morning! Downstairs accommodation was just as spacious with a lounge/diner and a breakfast kitchen with laundry room. Everywhere was clean, well equipped and tastefully dressed without clutter. The very large TV was a bonus. All was ready for the woodburner should it be required but the central heating soon warmed everywhere adequately. Outside was a secure private grassed area suitable for the dogs to run out in or for sitting out or opening French doors onto during good weather. The position of the barn is in the middle of the village with no rural outlook but all main windows are onto the garden rather than the quiet street and opposite houses. Lots to really commend this property! Have only given 4 stars because of location and mainly because unfortunately previous guests had not cleared spillage off twin bedroom carpet so it was badly stained and ready for an annual clean. Such a shame for Kenton that they spoiled such a nice cottage.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your kind comments, we are aware of a stain on the carpet and have attempted to clean it in a number of ways . It has annoyed us so much that we have got a date for new carpets coming in in three weeks, hopefully this will push us up to the five stars Thankyou Kenton

Lovely barn conversion in a very quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location as a base to visit north lakes & north yorks. Away from it all lovely barn conversion with everything you need from a home away from home. Nice pub backing onto property but nothing else in the immediate area. Would be nice to return for a longer stay.

Lovely place and very welcoming owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the barn for three days and thoroughly enjoyed our time. We were made to feel very welcome by Kenton and the barn was spotlessly clean and very homely. We would definitely like to return.

Excellent break away

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the property for 3 nights and when we arrived a bottle of wine with glasses had been left on the dining table which was really nice. The owner came around and made us feel welcome, and communication at all times with the owner was excellent. The house and garden are both lovely, and the house is spotless. It has good private off road parking also for a few cars. We especially loved the wood burner in the living room! Very quiet and peaceful area. Thank you for our stay!

Great property, great location; ideal for dogs

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous property - we were made very welcome by the owner.

Good, clean facilities and plenty of room for 2 of us and 2 large labradors. The enclosed garden is ideal when they needed to go outside.

We enjoyed walks into Appleby along the Roman Road, up to the top of High Cup Nick and across to Cat Bells near Keswick,

The pub is right next door - very welcoming and good food (huge portions); they allowed the dogs in the bar while we ate; there was no noise from people coming and going in the evenings.

There is a bakery in the village (all sorts of pies and cakes but no bread) but no other shops. You can get most things in Appleby (3 miles - 5 mins) and everything else from Penrith (10 miles - 20 mins).

We look forward to visiting again.
