Wonderful stay
We booked this house for a week as wanted somewhere to stay after we took our son to uni in Ambleside and this was a perfect base. House was very clean and had an unusual layout with hall, bathroom, utility room and two bedrooms on the ground floor. Stairs leading up to the sitting room and kitchen and then stairs to the master bedroom with ensuite shower room. The kitchen was wonderful with everything you needed for your stay and we loved the windows in there as was so bright. We didn't use the little garden to the back of the back of the house but in the early summer months I bet it would have been lovely to sit out there but did feel it was overlooked by the neighbours and their dogs which barked at us when we opened the door! But we didn't hear them other than that. We felt that stair gates would have be a good idea to have as well, as we had an 8 month old crawling baby that wanted to explore. The bed was very comfy in the master bedroom and the velux windows were great to stargaze. The village of Cark had a lovely bakers called fat flour where we tried the pizzas and they were delicious would recommend them. Nice fish and chip shop in the village too . We were about 35 mins to Windermere and 45 mins to Ambleside which are both beautiful and would recommend a visit. We visited new parts of the lakes which we had never visited before as was closer being in flookburgh. Villages such as hawkshead and coniston which are beautiful with little pubs and tearooms. Not too far was Hilltop ,Beatrix potters home in near sawrey. The lakeside aquarium was great and very cheap. The steam railway and Windermere steamers operate from here too and the car park was great ?4 for 10 hours so worth parking here and getting the boat to Ambleside . We had a wonderful week away and always love coming back up to the lakes. The house is a great base for Cumbria and the lakes .

Perfect holiday base
We have thoroughly enjoyed staying here. The house is immaculate and tastefully decorated to create a warm, cosy place to stay whilst visiting this region. We had everything here that is needed to offer a home from home holiday. Loved everything about it, the underfloor heating, large well equipped kitchen, gorgeous bedroom with sky windows and lovely ensuite. The bathroom is gorgeous as well and the utility room was a welcomed surprise. We highly recommend staying here, it's a peaceful, cosy home.

Fantastically relaxing home from home.
Superbly equipped property, (from the kitchen and laundry room, to the dvd and games drawers) that made our holiday just perfect. The owners have thought carefully about what their guests may want or need. They have also added some lovely touches that make the property really homely. Willow Barn is ideally positioned for travelling around the Lake District, either by car or by train, as the station is just a short walk away.

The location of this property provided convenient access to many places of interest. The property itself was in a quiet, peaceful setting and was of a high standard.
Mr Rayner

Willow Barn has the wow factor. It is a warm and cosy home which is tastefully decorated and furnished. The owners have made sure we would enjoy our holiday, and have gone the extra mile to make it comfortable. The key collection system was very practical.
