The position of this cottage was perfect for our needs and introduced us to an area of the Lakes we did not know well. We had excellent proximity to both towering mountains and wonderful beaches. The owners were extremely helpful and courteous.
Mrs Hall

A very comfortable and spacious cottage, in an excellent location for the Western Lakes and in close proximity to the village with good pubs, food and shops. All in all a great base for a Lake District walking holiday.
Mr Worthington

Bleng Barn Cottage was warm and comfortable with real character. We particularly liked the location. Very relaxing.
Mr Fawcett

Really friendly owners and ideal for a family holiday.
Mr Waghorn

The owners were lovely and the property is off the beaten track. Very comfortable and relaxing. Our party was five adults and one dog and there was still lots of room! The local pub does wonderful take away food and are very friendly as were the the locals. We will definitely be returning.
