Fabulous holiday property. Everything needed to spend a wonderful relaxing time in one of most beautiful places in the world. Contact with hosts super easy and lovely welcome provided on arrival. Highly recommend and will be back. Thanks Sarah and Paul!

Excellent Holiday Cottage
Perfect location to have a wonderful holiday in the southern area of the Lake District. The Byre is a lovely and cosy cottage. In a secluded and quiet spot it is a superb place to chill out with country lane walks nearby for our pet lab. Cartmel, Windermere, Hawkshead and Grange over Sands all short distances for our grandchildren to have fun. In particular, the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction (The Peter Rabbit Experience) at Bowness-on-Windermere is exceptional. There were several welcoming items (milk/biscuits/wine//dog treats) on arrival which were very much appreciated. This was our second visit to the Byre and it won't be our last when holidaying again in the Lake District. Lots to do and lots to see in this part of the world and the Byre is an excellent cottage to return to after a busy day whether you are walking,sightseeing or visiting attractions.

Superb holiday cottage.
We stayed here at the end of August with 2 children and our dog. The cottage is in a lovely peaceful spot with easy access to Cartmel & Grange Over Sands. The cottage is great and is lovely and quirky being on 3 floors. The enclosed back yard was perfect for our dog. There were some nice touches with biscuits, dog treats and elderflower cordial left on arrival. We have already recommended this to family and friends and would definitely stay here again. The beds were really comfy and plenty of towels etc.

Lovely country cottage
I stayed here will my family at the end of July for a week. What a beautiful location. The cottage is larger than expected and very quirky. Set over three floors with beautiful exposed beams. The enclosed garden was perfect for our dog. The cottage was a perfect base for exploring the lakes and the village of Cartmel not too far away. We walked there on our last day and it took around 40 minutes which went very quickly whilst being entertained by spectacular views. I would highly recommend The Byre

Nice cottage and area. Presentation could have been better.
I stayed in this cottage at the beginning of July with my family and their young baby. The cottage is unique in that it is on 3 levels. It served our purposes well but we felt that more attention to detail would have scored this property much higher. The kitchen could have been better equipped and the property cleaned more thoroughly particularly the bathroom and kitchen. The cooker hood filters were very greasy and there were a lot of flies around and in the property which could be understood as it was adjacent to a farm. The twin beds in the ground floor bedroom were extremely hard and the springs could be felt through the mattress. Please be aware that the photos of the cottage on Trip Advisor are not all current. If the problems above were addressed I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to a friend. We all missed having access to Wi-Fi and the use of a washing machine. Perhaps not essentials for some people but desirable for us.
