My Birthday celebration
Just way too lovely! Cannot describe this location! The guest house feels more like 5star hotel! I feel like buying the place forever, so I can come by whenever I like. The home owner as given everything a couple could need to make this stay most comfortable! The homeowner gave us very warm hospitality. AMAZING is all I can say! I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a honeymoon or just getaway from busy city life.

An amazing little place, perfect for two. It is beautifully renovated & decorated. The views were amazing and it was lovely having outside space to enjoy them and the wildlife.
Mrs Crocker

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.
