Simply perfect!
We booked this cottage last minute for a few nights? break and couldn?t have been happier when we arrived to this beautifully converted home. The place was spotless and all fittings and furnishings of a high standard. We instantly felt at home. Joanne and Martin were so friendly and the welcome tray was a lovely touch. (Best banana loaf we?ve ever had! ) It was a treat to help feeding the calves, and just sitting out on the patio listening to birdsong and watching the swallows diving about was so relaxing. Could?ve happily stayed a lot longer and will definitely visit again! Just a tip if you're thinking of booking - booking direct with the owners via their website is cheaper than going through a booking agency.

Superb modern holiday cottage
The Old Grainstore is one of the best holiday cottages I've stayed in; it's extremely spacious and modern, was spotlessly clean (important in these Covid times!) and has everything you need. Joanne & Martin were incredibly welcoming and really helpful with advice and tips of things to do locally, such as options for bike rides. I'd love to stay again sometime!

Perfect accommodation
4 friends and I stayed here Fri-Mon to climb Scafell Pike and enjoy a country escape from London. It's about and hour and 20 drive from the mountain through incredibly dramatic and beautiful scenery. It's very conveniently located for visiting Keswick and also Bassenthwaite Lake (which we swam in... Brrrr... beautiful but cold in September). The accommodation itself was scrupulously clean and well maintained. The rooms were all enormous with lovely high ceilings and decor and furniture that was extremely comfortable and restful (the beds are divine after a trek up a mountain and the whole place is light and airy and fresh). The enormous bath was also a bonus! Also, we couldn't have wished for a better host. We had a small accident (too embarrassing and daft to detail) but our host was ever so kind and understanding. We really appreciated the lovely cakes, jam and eggs that were in the cottage when we arrived as well. Our stay couldn't have been better. Highly recommended.

Perfect Getaway
We had a fabulous week, Grandma, Grandad, Mum, Dad, 3 3/4 year old & 16 month old. Joanne & Martin extremely friendly hosts who genuinely care that you are happy. Well equipped, child/toddler friendly, spotless & very comfortable. Great showers & comfortable beds. Lots of thoughtful touches. Great location, good access to walks & the beach. Must visit the Howk in Caldbeck. Wigton will cater for most purchases. The banana bread & crumbles by Joanne were delicious. Our granddaughters loved Bramble, Poppy & Lily the extremely friendly, but well behaved farm dogs. Would definitely recommend, especially if you want peace & quiet. We will be back!

Amazing location and hosts
We've just returned from the best week here. Joanne and Martin are absolutely lovely, couldn?t do enough for you. Our boys adored watching the the calves being fed by Joanne and then being asked to name them our suggestions are Alma and Marie (after the boys great grandma's). The boys loved the three dogs especially Lily as she kept running up and down whilst they played football. The cottage pie and apple crumble where delicious. And the ice cream van was ace perfect end to a few days. The location is just fabulous so much to see and do 7 days was not enough so we can?t wait to visit again. Thank you for an amazing week :-)
