“Lovely Cottage as shown”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Barnhaven is situated in a small village which although not far from Kendal (3miles) is a little off the beaten track and some of the roads to the village were extremely narrow. However, once there the village is very pretty and the cottage is in a very good location within it.

Barnhaven itself was exactly as advertised and as shown in the photos. There was ample private off-road car parking and a very large private back garden which the kids (and grandparents) loved. We had a very nice time at Barnhaven and we would not hesitate to recommend this to others.

We are a family of six had a wonderful time at Barnhaven. The house was wonderful. It had a gorgeous view, everything we needed for our children ie cot, games, dvds. An excellent kitchen. The fireplace was a real hit! We loved our stay in the Lakes and hope to return one day! Though being Australian it may be a while!
Ps the local pub was wonderful.
