We have stayed at a lot of places but this is probably the best! Sue is such a great communicator and genuinely friendly caring and passionate person. The whole experience of booking, finding, staying and leaving was beyond smooth. Lovely big spotless room within a converted barn in a tucked away farm. The beds were so good I checked the... More

We stayed at West Barn on a last minute weekend getaway, to escape the city and get some fresh countryside air. We were so lucky that a room was available for our stay and we were given a lovely warm welcome by Sue. Our room was large, but very cosy, with a lovely selection of teas and some delicious homemade... More

Another delightful stay at West Barn - Sue her usual warm and welcoming self, the bed as beautifully comfortable as we remember, the homemade cake and biscuits just as special. This is a lovely place to stay when visiting The Lakes - close enough for them to be easily accessible but far away from the teeming tourists! Looking forward to... More

This is a truly special b&b; tucked away in the hills around Kendal surrounded by wildlife and a few farm animals. It was a real treat to meet and help feed the owners own mini flock of sheep and chickens, and the very grand Rocky the rooster. The room was beautifully presented with some scrummy home made banana cake waiting... More

The bedroom was lovely, spacious, very clean, comfortable and brilliant for relaxing in. As for Sue, well, she is such a warm, genuine, people loving person and we got on so well that we even went out for dinner together even although I only met her that day !!! Next time I am in the Lake District, I will certainly... More

Used this B&B as an overnight stop on the way to the Commonwealth Games and did we find a gem in the Lake District's crown. The room was perfect a massive 6 foot super kingsize bed which was wonderfully comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. As you would expect, kettle and tea and coffee etc supplied but the...

Our stay at West Barn B&B was just perfect. Upon arrival Sue made us feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. The room and bed was very cosy, clean and fresh. There was fresh homemade cakes and flapjack in our room with other refreshments. We have visited West Barn previously on a visit to the Lake District and enjoyed... More

Sue was so welcoming and such a pity we only stayed 1night but hope to return. Delicious home made cake,biscuits and filter coffee in the room. I have never seen such a large bed and so comfortable. You just sank into it . Situation is so peaceful and beautiful scenery all around. Best breakfast that we had in the Lake... More
