“Holiday ”

The Granary was stunning. Beautifully appointed in every conceivable way. Amanda had thought of everything to make our stay feel so comfortable that we were reluctant to leave. Certainly very happy we could at least have the extra night.
A bottle of wine and some home made muffins made the country welcome complete. Amanda is a beautiful lady who has done a magnificent job with this barn conversion which is now equal to any five star accommodation anywhere in the world.
The Granary is remote yet with the town only a step away and is in the Lakes District with all the Lakes and towns close to reach.
Many thanks for our stay we have already recommended the Granary to many family members and friends.

“Lush!”
Reviewed May 20, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The granary was warm and spotless upon arrival with some delicious carrot cakes as a welcoming gift. great lighting. The shower/bath is amazing, especially after a day out. Privacy was very much so respected. The area was lovely and quite but only 5/10 minutes away from the town but also not far from the seaside or forest adventures and lake scenery. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely book again in the future.

“Gorgeous!”
Reviewed April 17, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

Me and my partner stayed here last October (very late review!), and it was wonderful! Lovely cakes and bottle of wine on arrival, pristinely clean and homely. Great choice of films and things to read about the surrounding areas. We always talk about coming back here whenever we go to the Lakes again! The owners were lovely and you couldn't ask for a better place to stay.

“Blissful honeymoon escape!”

We stayed at The Granary for our honeymoon and it was just amazing. High end finish provided a luxurious romantic hideaway that we were very sad to leave. Facilities were fantastic, we wanted for nothing! Perfectly situated in an area of the Lakes so that there's plenty of places to explore, Cockermouth, Keswick, Honister & Buttermere all within 20min drive. We will definitely be returning!

Beautiful ! Wonderful home from home with everything you could need and more.
We stayed for a week and can't fault it.
Lots of information on local area and places to visit. Very helpful owners friendly and close by but not at all intrusive. We will definitely return
Thank you so much Amanda.

This is a very polished cottage, the finish and fittings are first class, if you are a hiker or simply need a relaxed break we would recommend the Granary Escape, easy to find location with plenty of activities close (including pubs with good food), a few nice gifts left for us on arrival (tip - don't let anyone get to the cake tin before you!). You may not want it or it need it but the wi-fi is reliable and speedy unlike some we have experienced.
