“Gorgeous Cosy Cottage”
Reviewed May 7, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Had a lovely bank holiday weekend here. Were met on the Friday morning by Anne, who showed us round which was so nice, before we disappeared off in a walk round Ennerdale Water (lovely, relaxed walk) Anne had left some eggs for us, from the chickens in the gardens - absolutely gorgeous and so much better than the eggs we get usually!

The barn is very well equipped with everything you need for a home from home stay. The view is something in itself - amazing and no need for the tv when you can just sit and watch the weather come through and the sunrise / sunset (which we did!)

The barn is well situated for the coast, for Wasdale and Loweswater as well as obviouslyEnnerdale Water with Bowes Knott carpark only 15 mins drive away.

If you are looking for something special in a quiet part of the Lakes then this is definitely a must!

“Comfortable character property with stunning views”
Reviewed September 18, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

One of the best rental properties that we have used - not only do you have wonderful views over Ennerdale and its surrounding crags but the property itself is extremely comfortable, well furnished and maintained. The location is very convenient for access to to the Lake District as well as the coast and the area along Hadrian's Wall. We have now visited twice and will be back again before too long.

“Beautiful :-)”
Reviewed July 2, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Absolutely loved it here, was a proper little home away from home. Such a quiet and peaceful area with stunning views. We were made to feel at home by Anne, loved that she left us fresh eggs, milk etc, such a nice touch after a long journey. Such a shame we only booked it for a week, would have loved to stay longer.
