Beautiful family friendly cottage This has to be without doubt the most family friendly place we?ve stayed at.
The hosts Martin and Joanne are very welcoming as are the beautiful farm dogs!
On arrival there was a parcel of local produce including eggs, scones and jam that went down a treat.
As for the accommodation it is very well placed for easy access to the Lakes and beyond, we went North, South and West during our stay with ease.
The cottage is immaculately presented and very clean indeed. Every detail has been covered from an excellent wide range of pots and pans to child seats for the toilets. Our two young children (4 & 2) were well catered for with a wide range of toys and games for them to play with and all of the out door toys such as a ride along tractors, scooters and carts.
Joanne was very helpful and was only to pleased to show our girls the 4 week old dairy calf?s that make up part of the farm.
We enjoyed morning walks down the entrance track with Lily the puppy collie and the on site play area with slides and football was a welcome distraction whilst tea was being made.
We really cannot recommend this cottage enough, we comfortably slept 4 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of living space for the party too.
Internet is provided and is fast enough for the kids to access YouTube and alike.
The biggest compliment I can say is that it was like a home from home and we will definitely be back!! Philip W 2018-11-01
Great family friendly accomodation Joanne, Martin and family will make you feel very welcome. The cottage is clean and really well appointed, there are family games and plenty of toys to keep your little one entertained and the enclosed outdoor space is a lovely bonus! The cottage is ideally located for exploring Cumbria and we really enjoyed our stay. Sophie G 2018-08-09
Fantastic Holiday We had the most fantastic Holiday in Cumbria. The Old Grainstore completely surpassed expectations. It is a gorgeous little cottage, that has been beautifully converted and well maintained. Everything we could possibly need had been provided. We received a lovely welcome basket filled with homemade scones, banana bread, and local jam. Joanne had also left a selection of toys for my little girl to play with during our stay which she absolutely adored, and was so thoughtful. All the rooms were well appointed, comfy beds and sofas, and beautifully decorated. We loved the outside space, a little courtyard at the back where we had a barbecue one evening (also provided by our lovely hosts), and a lawned area next to a field with calves and sheep with ride on toys which my daughter also loved. We had the opportunity to feed the calves in the evenings, and we were also taken on a nature walk around the farm one evening where we saw a buzzard, heron and two hares (amongst other wildlife).
Our hosts were so friendly and accommodating, I really cannot fault The Old Grainstore. We has such a wonderful time. I was pretty devastated when we had to leave! I would thoroughly recommend you book your holiday here! Elizabeth T 2018-06-12
Happy family memories I am always torn about leaving a review for places like this as we want to keep it a secret. It was perfect. With three young kids we couldn't have picked better. The kids loved staying in a farm and having the huge enclosed space to play in. After a day at the lakes, they were straight outside on their bikes while we did dinner-we struggled to get them in. The accommodation is perfect; modern, but retaining that authentic barn feel. The owners are genuinely nice friendly people. They take time to answer all the kids questions about the farm, and, if you time it well, you get to see sheep dogs in action. The quiet, oh the quiet! Not a road noise or the sound of another human. The night silence is only broken by the odd neigh of a donkey.
The only down side is that the week will fly by. If we'd time for two weeks then we would have down that. My wife accepted and wallowed in the praise of finding this place. Major brownie points for her. DMagHerts 2018-04-14
