“Perfect get-away cottage - beautiful location and all modern amenities”
Reviewed November 8, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The Sturdy Bank Barn turned out to much more than what we expected - a wonderful location overlooking the valley, a modern house with high-quality and well designed interiors and absolutely lovely hosts in Lindsay and John.

As we drove up to the cottage, we were first welcomed by the breathtaking view and then of course by the lovely lemon cake on the kitchen table. Lindsay and John were very helpful in guiding us to the nearby attractions and the walks (John - we really enjoyed the walk near the Coniston Lake). They are right next-door if one needs any help, but they don't bother you at all otherwise.

The cottage itself is very well designed and maintained. The huge window spanning the dining and lounge areas gives a unbroken view of the valley and every bedroom has a different view to enjoy. All the amenities one would require are provided for, even if you have a large family coming in. Also, there is a good selection of books and a few games if you are stuck indoors (our kids were mostly on Scrabble in the evenings and and they really enjoyed the fireplace).

I would readily recommend the Barn to anyone!

“Beautiful cottage within rural view”
Reviewed August 2, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The cottage is beautifully located in a typical rural area, with picturesque view from every window.
It is very carefully designed and kept to make the most of this view, and it is nice just to sit there and enjoy it, and feel blessed.
The owner are welcoming, friendly yet private, which was perfect for us. We were welcomed with freshly baked scones and tea.
The place is very clean and comfortable, and we all enjoyed staying there.
Thank you very much Lindsey and John!
