We had a lovely week in Little Byre. It was just perfect for the two of us. The cottage is very well equipped and furnished to a high standard..We visited Ambleside, Kendal,Keswick and Windermere. We were lucky to have good weather and enjoyed very scenic drives and had a few picnics.

Our stay at Little Byre was perfect. The cottage is exceptionally clean and well cared for, beds are very comfy and the neighbours are friendly and helpful. Very peaceful setting. Would recommend the tea room at Dodds Wood, best gingerbread you will ever taste.
