“School reunion”
Reviewed April 17, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

What a great place for old (or not so old) school friends to meet up with children.

I can't really say much more than the other 5 star reviews. Beautiful place, location, clean, just great really. And the alpacas are very cute!

A raucous hen party next door could have spoilt our stay but the owners Joe and Wendy were so apologetic and lovely that I can't even dock any stars for that!

The only thing which could be improved is the number of teaspoons in the kitchen, just not enough!

Thanks Wendy and Joe, wishing you lots of luck in the future.

Thank you for your kind comments glad you and your children all enjoyed the school reunion. Sorry about the lack of teaspoons we were unaware they had gone down in number, we will refill the barn with some more. Glad the children and adults enjoyed our Alpaca Experience too. All the best. Wendy & Joe.

“Hen party = perfect house”
Reviewed April 13, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We booked for a hen party, perfect location to allow those coming from the motorway a quick arrival! We were lucky enough to have look round prior to the weekend, massive lounge, kitchen and plenty of bathrooms to allow is all time to get ready! We made use of the perfect weather and sat out on the garden furniture to do some fun and games. (We set up an aerial silks rig in the garden!!)
We rented the two attached cottages so were able to make use of the massive ovens enabling everyone to eat at the same time! Plenty of plates, cutlery and most importantly glasses in both cottages made it easy to cater for the 30 people staying! The owners were so helpful and made us feel at home straight away! The alpacas were so lovely to see, and we were allowed to feed them! Would def recommend these cottages, perfect for a few family's getting together or a big party like we had! Thanks again for having us xx

It was a pleasure to have you and the aerial silks rig was something we have never seen here before - a good idea for a group activity. Hope the big day goes well for everyone. Regards. Wendy & Joe

“The perfect escape for a group getaway”
Reviewed December 21, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We booked this barn to celebrate my husbands 40th, there were 17 of us all together. the barn was cosy yet spacious and modern with its amenities.
The scenery was most wonderful to wake up to and Jennifer our host was lovely.
I would highly recommend this place to friends and i hope to visit it again myself one day soon.

“Hen party ? Alpaca my bags.”
Reviewed October 16, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Absolutely perfect amazing brilliant stay for my hen party.
Beautiful location, dead accessible from the motorway but you feel a million miles from everything which is perfect.
Gorgeous house. Enough bathrooms and hairdryers to keep a group of glitter covered mad women happy. Comfy beds, skylights for star gazing as you fall asleep.
The owners are properly cool, came to meet us on Saturday to show us the alpacas which is a hilarious experience. The alpacas will cure your hangover:
Can't fault anything about our stay.
Didn't want to leave, but I suppose I better go and get married!!!
Thanks again

We have just returned from a weekend stay- Friday to Sunday at Meadowview Barn. We were celebrating my husbands 65th birthday with our four children, spouses and 4 young grandchildren. We have had a fabulous time! The property was perfect, the alpacas were an amazing experience for both young and old and Jenny was both helpful and friendly. Thank you for helping make our special weekend really special!

“Great weekend had”
Reviewed September 21, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

It's the second time Inhave stayed SamGill near Kendal on one of
Tamara's yoga weekends. Fab place, set in the rolling hills of the Lakes. The house is well presented and comfortable, kitchen is big and great to cook in. Meeting the Alpaca's was fun too, and the duck eggs you can get also well yummy!! I'd love to come back with friends for the weekend.

Absolutely brilliant. Could not have been better. We enjoyed family preparation of food sessions in the kitchen, then cooking the food (we had Raclettes) at a wonderfully large dining table. Great open scene.
