1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Kirkby in Furness, Lake District, Cumbria, England

The cottage adjoins the owners main home which is a converted Dutch Barn. This barn was originally part of a working farm and is sited furthest away from the original farmhouse and therefore, as well as enjoying lovely views over the neighbouring farmers fields, we are not overlooked by other houses.The cottage has been lovingly and stylishly converted to a very high standard and is an ideal retreat for couples or couples with an infant.

Have your shoes at...

We have just returned from a lovely break at this cottage. Mike and Chris were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble, they even installed baby gates for us at no extra charge.

We have just spent the weekend at this fantastic cottage, our second stay in successive years. The cottage has a real homely feel about it - modern, clean, equipped with the essentials in a quiet hamlet in the south lakes. We were welcomed on both occasions with a fridge stocked with milk, eggs and bread plus a lovely bottle of...
