“Fantastic accommodation with spectacular views!”
Reviewed January 18, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay over Christmas in such wonderful accommodation. Though it is very spacious it was still very cosy especially once a roaring log fire has been lit in the wood burner. The views were spectacular and there were so many walks we could do straight from the door. I would definitely recommend 'The Byre' whether it be for a special occasion or just a holiday. We'll definitely be booking again!

We had a great time at the Byre - the cottage was absolutely spotless on arrival and the instructions to get there were excellent. The cottage really has the "wow" factor - excellent features and an amazing view. The nearest town where everything you may need is available, is only a 10min drive away. The cottage is perfectly situated for long walks from your doorstep.
We will definitely be returning and would highly recommend!

“Comfortable, spacious cottage in stunning surroundings.”

Our second visit to the Byre this year and once again delighted to be here. The Byre provides extremely spacious accommodation for two people with modern comforts including dishwasher and wi fi. The comfortable bed and quiet environment ensure a good night's sleep. The views to Catbells from the living room and pretty garden are stunning and many walks can be taken right from the door. Keswick is a short drive away for supplies and a variety of good eating places. Finally, David the owner is friendly and unobtrusive but on hand to welcome visitors and provide local information. All in all, our favourite place to stay in the Lakes.

A beautiful property, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Everything about this rental is fantastic and the fixtures and fittings are all high-end. A place for everything and everything in it's place! David, the proprietor is a great guy - very friendly and helpful yet never intrusive which is just what we like.
Only a couple of miles from Keswick, yet you get the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere - a perfect, peaceful and relaxing location! We have already booked for next year!!

The Byre is a wonderful property, set in a fantastic location looking out to Catbells. We have visited the property several times over the last few years and have found it very well maintained with everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable
The addition of wifi this year was a bonus.

The owner, David, is on hand and is extremely helpful and generous.

The location is ideal, with many walks straight from the door and with Keswick only 10 mins drive away, we found stocking up on supplies very convenient.
