This charming cottage is able to sleep six people across three bedrooms – one double en suite and two twin rooms.

In the small hamlet of Tatham on the rural outskirts of Bentham lies this stunning property - an outstanding, semi-detached stone barn conversion just eight miles from Kirkby Lonsdale. Set in the grounds of the owner's farmhouse, this pretty property has been lovingly restored to incorporate attractive period features and practical modern fixtures. There is also a well-equipped kitchen with dining area as well as a lovely lounge with wood-burning stove and French windows to the patio, ideal for outdoor eating, or relaxing in the sun.


We stayed here for one week during August, it was a truly wonderful place, tranquil and beautifully appointed, my children didn't want to leave. Comfortable clean, crisp beds, everything I needed in the kitchen, open fire, comfortable settees. The garden felt very safe for my little doggie, and the views and sunsets were amazing. The resident wallabies are beautiful creatures and we could feed them banana skins as the owner suggested. The girls rode bikes and had freedom. The owners were there but were unobtrusive, and couldn't have been more helpful.

The property was beautifully maintained and in a lovely quiet location. The owners were very pleasant but not intrusive.

A Beautiful Well Equipped Home in the Heart of the Forest of Bowland!
The property was beautifully cared for, quiet and the owners were especially kind. The location is perfect for exploring Lancashire and the North Yorkshire Dales. Hadrian's Wall and a bit of Scotland are just a little drive away. There are ample opportunities for hiking and the local village, High Bentham, has great pubs, two grocery stores, a butcher, bakery and even has an Indian takeaway. The home itself is very spacious and well appointed. There are many conveniences in the home that we greatly appreciated. Would definitely give this home a legitimate five stars! Oh, yes, - the resident wallabies were an extra bonus, so cute!

We thought the views from Usherwoods Barn were out of this world it was beautiful to wake up too them and then see them all day. The walks in the area where superb and every one was so friendly and the owner was very very nice.
Mr Lindley
