“Fantastic cottage in a stunning location”
Reviewed April 13, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We had a wonderful week staying in The Byre. The cottage is amazing. Stunning countryside and mountain views from every room! Spotlessly clean and equipped to a very high standard. The wildlife garden is a lovely haven to relax in and enjoy the wildlife and wonderful views. Set in a great location to enjoy walks straight from the door or exploring the lake district by car. Will definitely be returning!

“A beautiful spacious house”
Reviewed March 29, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

With views of Skiddaw, Cat Bells and the Newlands Valley this is a perfect place to relax. The Byre is fabulous, with top notch facilities and David has taken every care to ensure a pleasurable holiday. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and will not hesitate to return. There are good walks from the doorstep and it is fairly close to drive to Buttermere and Keswick, or the lovely nearby villages in the valley.

“A beautiful place in a lovely location”
Reviewed January 22, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The cottage is very well decorated and furnished and everything is extremely comfortable. Although it is very spacious it is also cosy and inviting. The location is beautiful & calm and there are plenty of different walks. We really enjoyed our stay, a complete rest & relaxation. Would highly recommend and hope to return.

“Incredible accommodation in an incredible setting”

The Byre is one of the few places we would consider going back to (as a rule we never return to same place twice). The location is fantastic, with several incredible walks right on your doorstep and yes the accommodation really is as spacious and comfortable as it looks in the pictures. There is also a Weber BBQ, so a real bonus if you cook outdoors a lot. David was a great host and looking back, we really miss just sat on the patio, watching the wildlife with a cup of tea and being sat in front of the fire with a beer / wine (both). A truly fantastic place and well worth the 5 1/2 drive.

Top tip: Do the Coledale or Newlands Round walks. Hard going but amazing and buy the Rib Eye from the butchers in Keswick - up there with any beef i had anywhere in the world :-)
