We have had a lovely week at the barn this half term! The house is awesome and beautifully furnished, wanting for nothing. The weather held out the whole week so lots of walks and back to a cosy home from home.

Wonderful stay, peaceful and beautiful. Owner very very helpful when we had an issue with the travel cot. Dog and Gun fab for dinner. Thankyou.
Well equipped cottage. We had a great time exploring this area.
we knew we would love our stay here from the second we walked in the door - the cottage is beautifully done. Unfortunately Dog and Gun appeared to be closed during our stay but we stumbled on a market in Keswick and an impromptu pub quiz at the Boot and Shoe in Greystoke ( both on Thursdays) which kept us happily entertained. Would also recommend a browse arounf Penrith and the food at the Snooty Fox in Uldale is well worth the (lovely) drive! Many thanks Joanne - Westoe Cottage has been a joy to stay at xx
We’ve had a great weekend staying at this lovely cosy cottage. It’s in a great location short drives to go exploring places. Derwentwater and Ullswater was beautiful and for confident drivers the Honister Pass to Buttermere is amazing and scenic.
