Great week away
We stayed in The Old Grainstore for a recent family break. It is fair to say the accommodation surpassed our expectations, with some age appropriate toys and games provided for the kids, great outside space to play in and superb facilities. Bedrooms were perfectly equipped for our needs, and were more spacious than the photos suggested. Everything was in perfect condition on arrival, and the scones left for us were lovely. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and the kids really enjoyed feeding the calves on the farm. If we plan to visit the area in the future we wouldn't look anywhere else!

Excellent accommodation. Highly recommended!
We stay in many holiday homes across the country and this has to be, one of the best we have stayed in! Great for families with young children, especially in the warmer months with the garden and footballs, scooters and ride on tractor to play on. Fresh eggs, milk and cake upon arrival and amazingly clean and comfortable with everything you could possibly want or need whilst staying away. Highly recommended and excellent value. We look forward to returning!

Excellent property, comfortable and well equipped. Very helpful and welcoming hosts, in an ideal location for exploring the north of the Lake District, Carlisle and Solway. Ranks with the best we have stayed in.

The perfect holiday cottage
We stayed over Easter 2016 in this wonderful cottage. The cottage itself is beautiful and the owners Joanne and Martin have thought of everything - we could not fault it. Comfy beds, great showers and large bath, well equipped kitchen and toys for the children with a safe play area outside. The Bairds are great hosts and could not be more helpful - the fresh farm eggs and cakes were a great welcome and the children enjoyed helping to feed the calves. The cottage is ideally located for the many attractions of the North Lakes and only 5 minutes from the small town of Wigton. There are some great county pubs and tea rooms near by. We will definitely be returning to the Old Grainstore.
