Everything was exactly as described and more! Loved all the extra touches which made it more personal. An ideal base for both Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales. We had a wonderful week.
Ms Bucknill

The owners have clearly put a great deal of thought into the barn and the decor is fabulous. The bed is so comfy and the whole place is immaculate. The location is great, the views from the sitting area were lovely and we couldn't have asked for anything more. We really enjoyed our weekend and will recommend to friends.
Miss Heeley

Lovely cottage with exceptional furnishings and a view to look at all day and never be bored. The owners were friendly and helpful.
Mrs O'Connor

The cottage is in a beautiful location, perfect for an escape away from the real world. I loved its rural location and beautiful views. The cottage is fantastically renovated and we couldn't stop admiring it. The view from the sofa over the hills is just one you can stare at all day!
Mrs Crichton

The Cow Byre is a beautiful and quirky cottage with great views. The owner has gone out of their way to think of everything - making it a real home from home. The location is really peaceful yet not too far from the nearest town. Loved it!
