Just arrived back from our stay at Lapwings Barn and what a great weekend we had! Lovely quiet location yet still local to Kendal and Windermere. The owners are lovely and breakfast is the best we've had in any b&b. Great value for money and an excellent stay!! Thank you!

Stayed for two nights in the Curlew at the end of September. Visiting family locally we wanted a good night's sleep and that's exactly what we had. Beautifully peaceful and quiet surroundings with a patio to sit out and have morning coffee. Freshly cooked breakfast with their own produce was delivered to the room at the time of our choice...

We were on the last leg of the Dalesway and Lapwings Barn was an Oasis at the end of a long and tiring day! Not just a bedroom - but a lovely balconied living room on the first floor with cosy wood burner and bedroom/shower room downstairs. Rick was the perfect attentive host - he brought a delicious expertly prepared... More

Having previously stayed here for a couple of days in the summer of 2012 and had a great experience we returned for a 3 night stay in late November 2013. We were looked after very well by Gill and Rick. This is a self contained bedroom, ensuite and upstairs mezzanine living room with balcony. It was kept pleasantly warm during... More

Seriously, you would be hard pushed to find a better place to stay anywhere in the UK. My friend and I only stayed the one night but I wish it could have been longer and will definitely be back. Rick the host was warm, and welcoming and genuine. The room was clean, warm and the beds very very comfortable. A... More

We wanted somewhere quiet, comfortable and affordable for a few days at the end of August. Found Lapwings Barn online and then read the reviews - could it really be that good? Yes, it could! Ric and Gill (who makes the most delicious cakes) couldn't have been more helpful and hospitable, and the accommodation was just delightful, with the upstairs... More

Booked for just one night when going to a party in Kendal and couldn't get accommodation in town - but wished we'd stayed longer. It's a dinky little place with bedroom and shower room downstairs (with porch with bench seats and room for muddy boots), and bright lounge with balcony upstairs. The lounge has a little table plus fridge and... More

Ricardo and Gill offer genuine hospitality set to a back drop of comfortable furnishings and peaceful surroundings. Most impressive is their commitment to fine food - the most delicious bacon, breads and jams! The wood burning stove is a treat too. I recommend Lapwings very highly.

Where to begin. Firstly the hospitality. Rick is everything you would want from a host; interesting, laid back, friendly and can't do enough for you. He is absolutely the sort of person who should be in the hospitality industry. Meeting the rest of the family just reinforced this impression as they were all warm and very helpful. The accommodation is... More
