Amazing, well-equipped cottage, friendly owners
We had such an excellent time here. The owners were really friendly and bent over backwards to make our stay perfect. Once they found out we had a 3 year old with us, they made sure there were lots of toys and books to play with, and provided a bed guard. My daughter was so excited to feed the cows on the farm! The kitchen is better stocked than my own, and they had homemade scones out for us when we got there. The beds were really comfy and the showers lovely. Would happily stay again and would recommend.

Beautiful spacious cottage
We have just returned from a fantastic family holiday at The Old Grainstore. The cottage is beautiful , spacious and very well laid out. It also had 3 toilets which was very handy having 3 children .They have thought of everything . The owners Joanne and Martin are really lovely .My kids 14 ,10 and 9 loved it especially their 3 dogs Bramble,Poppy and Lily who are so friendly and love a good cuddle . The welcome basket on arrival had Banana bread which was so tasty , raspberry jam and eggs that were all double yolkers . They also have a very good enclosed play area with football goals,slides and swing ball which is a very good idea especially for younger children. We also enjoyed seeing the young cows right next door to out cottage . The kids also enjoyed a visit from the ice cream van and was so nice hearing the tinkle as he drove in. It is very central to loads of lovely attractions , Lowther castle, Lake District wildlife park , Keswick Allonby beach and many many more .We can't wait to go back as I think this was a very good find for a very enjoyable family holiday .Thank you .x

Great owners, location, accommodation
Have stayed here 9 times now (that's how much we like it). What makes this cottage so good are the owners Martin and Joanne. They really make you feel welcome and can not do enough for you. The cottage is always spotlessly clean and well maintained. It's location is great too, halfway between Keswick and Carlisle which is great for easy access to the mountains/lakes and also if you fancy a trip into Southern Scotland. I would and have recommended the cottage to anyone and in fact have already booked our 10th visit for next year. It a great place to stay.

Amazing accommodation
A beautifully renovated barn on a working dairy farm. Amazing location and very friendly owners who met us on arrival and advised us of plenty of thing to see and do in the area. Perfect location for visiting the Lake District and surrounding areas. The cottage was spacious and homely and had everything you would need. We will definitely be visiting again and would highly recommend.
