- Very Good
We had high expectations before we arrived but these were exceeded from the moment we got there until we went home. The Barn is quite simply a really nice place in a great location, tastefully decorated it is very warm and inviting. In addition John and Tina had left some really nice personal touches such as 4 complimentary home grown eggs which were brilliant. The location is perfect right in the heart of the gorgeous lake district with lake Ulleswater only 4 miles away in addition a great village pub and quality restaurant are just down the road in the village. I whole heartedly recommend a visit it is really good, cant recommend it enough.
Austin - thank you so much for your kind words it was a pleasure having you to stay.
We stayed at The Barn at Andrew House for October half term What a lovely cottage, warm, cosy, very clean felt like home, fully equipped. Our children loved it especially the chickens in the wonderful fields behind the barn to run around and explore Lots to do around the area but only short drives if you want yo explore further touristy places too Lovely local pub called The Kings Arms with great home cooked food , John &!Tina was very welcoming and happy to help with anything ...... We look forward to another visit next year
“Fantastic place to stay”
We were so pleased we chose to stay at The Barn at Andrew House. John and Tina have thought of everything to make the cottage feel like home. It is fully equipped and with the added bonus of an open coal fire. It is in a perfect location to explore all of the northern and central lakes and ideally placed to travel the short distance to Penrith. We couldn't have asked for a better accommodation and we would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit this beautiful part of the UK.
Thank you so much for your kind review it was a real pleasure having you to stay
“A relaxing peaceful break in a beautifl property”
Andrew Barn is a home from home property with everything you could ever need for a peaceful and relaxing break. The Barn is comfortable, warm and equipped to excellent standards. John and Tina were so welcoming and allowed us to treat the property as our own and available if needed. The area is quiet, peaceful and so relaxing, we enjoyed sitting watching the numerous birds that visited the garden daily. Ideal for visiting Ullswater and other areas of the Lake District and local walks can be taken from the property itself. A week wasn't long enough and we will certainly be returning very soon. Lee and Hilary
Thank you for your kind comments we really appreciate them
“Wonderful House and John and Tina were so helpful in locating restaurants, pubs and hiking activities.”
We loved our stay at the barn. The living room and dining area spacious and comfortable. There is a cozy fireplace to take off the chill if rain. The kitchen was well appointed with everything you could need. Bedrooms with views of fields and birds and the most comfortable bed with quality linens . We had a lovely time.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday at The Barn it was great to be able to welcome you here in the Lake District
“Superb property...excellent base to explore Lakeland”
We had a short break at The Barn in July. It is situated in a secluded spot in the village of Stainton (pub and restaurant just down the road) not far from Penrith and about 15 minutes from Keswick. The property was spotlessly clean and welcoming, with a modern feel to it, right down to the comfortable beds and reclining sofa. The hosts are friendly and respected our privacy, and were always on hand to make sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible (they even made sure the bird feeders were filled up in the garden - loved watching the woodpeckers and all of the other different birds that visited!) The best bit for us was probably sitting in the garden in the evening, overlooking the meadow watching the sun go down each night! If you're a walker or climber you'll love the vast array of books and maps in the bookcase! We will definitely stay here again as it's ideal for anyone who wants a bit of peace and quiet and a great base from which to explore the Lake District.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday at The Barn especially as it was your wedding anniversary. We were concerned to ensure that you had a relaxing and peaceful stay.
