Boarbank Farm's location is beautiful. The views from the garden and the front of the property are spectacular. The location is extremely quiet and peaceful so we all slept very well.
Mrs Bulman

Very comfortable and unusual barn conversion. Well equipped kitchen but window lock broken which could be an issue if children stay as the window as a window seat below it. Some issues with the dishwasher not emptying fully. Very spacious living acomodation and the conservatory gives access to a good sized garden. Garden is pretty secure if you have dogs. Lovely quiet location. The pheasant inn in allithwaite is worth a visit. Great food and friendly staff. Overall a great place to stay within reach of Windermere and Coniston.

A very spacious & unusual property which suited us well. Tucked away off the beaten track in the Cartmel peninsula, but convenient for the South Lakes & the less touristy southern fringes of Cumbria.
Mr Ballard

Could not fault our stay at Boarbank farm. We had everything we needed for a fantastic winter break in the Lake District. The 3 story barn conversion was spacious and comfortable. We especially loved watching the stars through the skylight in the upstairs bedroom. The kitchen was well equipped, enabling us to enjoy hearty meals at minimum cost, and snuggling infront of the most realitic coal-effect electric fire was simply pleasurable, with the wind blowing outside ( and no mess). We highly recommend this accommodation.

Quiet, spacious and well equipped!
