Superb holiday cottage.
We stayed here at the end of August with 2 children and our dog. The cottage is in a lovely peaceful spot with easy access to Cartmel & Grange Over Sands. The cottage is great and is lovely and quirky being on 3 floors. The enclosed back yard was perfect for our dog. There were some nice touches with biscuits, dog treats and elderflower cordial left on arrival. We have already recommended this to family and friends and would definitely stay here again. The beds were really comfy and plenty of towels etc.

Lovely country cottage
I stayed here will my family at the end of July for a week. What a beautiful location. The cottage is larger than expected and very quirky. Set over three floors with beautiful exposed beams. The enclosed garden was perfect for our dog. The cottage was a perfect base for exploring the lakes and the village of Cartmel not too far away. We walked there on our last day and it took around 40 minutes which went very quickly whilst being entertained by spectacular views. I would highly recommend The Byre

Nice cottage and area. Presentation could have been better.
I stayed in this cottage at the beginning of July with my family and their young baby. The cottage is unique in that it is on 3 levels. It served our purposes well but we felt that more attention to detail would have scored this property much higher. The kitchen could have been better equipped and the property cleaned more thoroughly particularly the bathroom and kitchen. The cooker hood filters were very greasy and there were a lot of flies around and in the property which could be understood as it was adjacent to a farm. The twin beds in the ground floor bedroom were extremely hard and the springs could be felt through the mattress. Please be aware that the photos of the cottage on Trip Advisor are not all current. If the problems above were addressed I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to a friend. We all missed having access to Wi-Fi and the use of a washing machine. Perhaps not essentials for some people but desirable for us.

In a very peaceful location within easy reach of the Lake Districts popular towns. We have a dog so the walled and enclosed garden was particularly good for us. It was ideal for 2 people and a dog. There were good leaflets in the property for where to visit and details of local pubs/restaurants for evening meals, that were not too far away. Definitely worth a look as a cottage accommodation.

Very Nice & Relaxing
Arrived Here Fri 17th June for 1 Week Very Nice Cottage on 3 Levels,Very Clean & Spacious Had a problem with the electric cooker on the 1st night so the owner who lives next door cooked our tea for us Brand New Cooker in place by Sunday Morning Very Quiet area about 2 miles to Cartmel in the car 5-10 mins the only small problem we had was with Flies from the Monday,at some times there could be 10 -20 of the little buggers flying at you while you were eating or watching TV An Extra Large Can of Fly Spray and a good aim with a tea towel nearly sorted the problem We had great weather except for the Sunday and the Patio was great for sitting outside after walking round Cartmel Overall Very Nice & Relaxing(No Mobile Phone Coverage or WiFi thou)
