We had a wonderful week at The Old Grainstore. We've stayed in many holiday cottages in the past and are very fussy. We are in our early. 30's and look for modern, clean places to stay that still have charm and character. This place fits the bill. Our expectations were not only met but exceeded. The family are very welcoming and friendly. The cottage itself is finished to a high standard and the cleanliness is second to none. Lovely surroundings too. What more could we ask for? We would not hesitate to return or recommend. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.

We travelled from Cyprus to the UK for Christmas: 2 adults and 2 children aged 6 and 11, and then picked Granny up on our way! So with a group ranging from 6 to 72 years a lot of boxes needed to be ticked. The property is perfectly suited to explore the Lake District and the Scottish Borders. From shopping, to castles, to museums to wildlife parks, we ran out of time in our two weeks to do everything we wanted to. Particularly in the cold, winter months - and the weather was particularly wild, we were looking for a cozy home-from-home experience. The attention to detail and comfort that Joanne and Martin have paid is second to none, creating nothing short of a small, boutique hotel experience. You feel with them, that providing a special experience goes beyond the contract detail. The working farm provides a really 'real' experience of life on a farm and how it goes on no matter what the weather or season. Again, provision of wellies for our 'Mediterranean Living' children was a touch beyond what we expected but so gratefully received and appreciated. Martin and Joanne have created something very special that I heartily recommend to everyone and anyone.

The Old Grainstore is a lovely place to stay. it is furnished to a very high standard and presents those who are lucky to stay there with a welcoming comfort at the end of a long walk! Nothing is too much trouble for the owners who are there to offer help if needed. Joanne's homemade scones were especially scrummy! Families with young children will enjoy the experience of living on a working farm. The Old Grainstore would be the perfect choice for a perfect stay in Cumbria.

A lovely place, beautifully decorated. We went with a 3 month old and 2 year old and Joanne had put everything in we needed. Great space for then to play indoors and outdoors and very comfortable. Would really recommend.

Joanne and Martin have thought of everything you will need for a lovely stay. They were very welcoming and all the facilities you require are in the cottage. The cottage itself is finished to a very high standard - very much a home from home. Martin was willing to share his farm with our children (which they loved) and the environment was very relaxing. Highly recommended.

The Old Grainstore is a beautifully converted farm building on a working dairy farm and is the perfect place for a relaxing family break close to the lakes. The owners Joanne and Martin and their family are really friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay; fresh scones, eggs, bread and cake were very welcome.
It's so nice that we will be planning a return visit.
