A lovely 2-bed cottage, Beech Barn was an ideal location for us attenting a wedding at Hartington Hall, not far away. Modern fixings and furniture although sofa and chairs had throws to cover well-worn leather. Negative: Although clean on first glance, a thorough clean would be advised as when we lost games pieces under the chairs we found puzzles pieces... More

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

A very warm and genuine welcome from Rick, very comfortable room with woodburning stove and sitting area, with bedroom below. very nice bathroom. Best of all Rick conjured up a classic mexican breakfast for me as I need gluten free diet and what a treat that was. After 2 weeks touring the country celebrating a big birthday this is the... More
