“great place”
Reviewed September 11, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

very comfortable place , well thought out and with lovely finishing touches. Bottle of wine went down well on arrival.Only problem we had that was caused by ancient sat nav and not requesting detailed instructions was finding the place as it hides behind walls and is called the Lilacs. The local pub is to be recommended for quiet drinks and meals. Penrith and the northern lakes are all in easy reach . I would be more than happy to return here again.

The Lilac barn was excellent for my family of 4. It was comfortable and was well equiped. Excellent decore and it felt homely. Location was good with easy commute to the lakes, M6 and facilities. Finally we had decent weather which made a great holiday.

“5 star”
Reviewed July 18, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have just spent a week at Lilac Barn which is perfectly situated for touring the Lake District. Everything you could need is provided, beds are comfortable and the barn is spotlessly clean. Recommended restaurants include The Sun Inn (Newton Reigny) and The Boot and Shoe (Greystokes)

“Excellent cottage with every facility provided for a relaxing stay close to the northern lakes.”
Reviewed April 24, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The cottage has been renovated and furnished to a very high standard with every facility required to make your stay very comfortable and stress free. It is an excellent location to explore the northern lakes and surrounding towns. The welcome and quiet support of the owners Jill and Howard Moss is appreciated.

Just a great place. Spacious, immaculate with all the bits and bobs you will need (including a welcome bottle of wine)
Great location with supermarkets a short drive away and the Lakes not much further with some amazing drives on the way.
Would we recommend this? Well we already have to our family.
We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we enjoyed our all to brief stay here.

If you are looking for a quiet and very lovely place to stay in the Lake District, this is it. What a stunning find! It was exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated, and very spacious. It was also in close driving distance to all the places we wanted to visit in the area. We enjoyed this stay immensely!

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed January 22, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

people found this review helpful

Lilac barn is a fantastic place to stay and although hidden away in a small village it is very close to all the lake areas. The barn itself has been beautifully decorated, it is spacious and spotlessly clean. The ambience of the place is enhanced by the clever lighting, and although it hase an olde worlde feeling it is complete with all modern facilities and just about everything is new. The bedrooms are really nice and the main bedroom is complete with an en suite shower and toilet room. There is also a nice bathroom an separate toilet downstairs.
The village now has a newly refurbished Sun Inn pub, 5 mins walk, which is really nice and provides both a friendly atmosphere and superb food. Try the steak pie and cheese soufflé which are excellent and reasonably priced.
