I stayed at Meadow View Barn in October 2016 for a friends hen do. I had such as great time that as I was leaving I booked Gill Side Barn for my own hen do where I was joined by 16 of my friends.
The location is perfect. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but are within easy reach of places such as Kendal and Windermere.
The house itself is fantastic - clean, modern and spacious. The bedrooms are cosy and comfortable and the communal areas are a great size to accomodate everyone.
We hired a hot tub for the weekend which I would highly recommend. The owners organised this for us although the hot tub is not provided by them.
We met and fed the Alpacas on the Friday night which is a brilliant added extra for the weekend and I would highly recommend you do this.
Tip - I loved both Gill Side Barn and Meadow View Barn but the dining room in Gill Side is more spacious for a big group of you.
Barn is completed to a very high standard, stayed with family for an 80th birthday, youngest in our party was 4.
Plenty of room, well equipped, we ate in each night and managed to cook easily for 12 people
Saw a new born alpaca and went out into the field with Wendy and Joe to feed the girls - thank you
Well positioned to visit Windermere and Kendal, we had a lovely few days and would recommend this property without hesitation
We had a fantastic time at the cottage which was perfectly appointed and set up for our five families to get together for a 50th celebration weekend. Set in a great location that is far away enough for peace and quiet but also within driving distance of Kendal if needed.
Both owners were very helpful and entertaining on the Alpaca visit.
Highly recommended !
Can't rate this property highly enough. Stayed for the weekend in Gillside barn for a 50th birthday celebration. The accommodation was excellent with perfect amenities for a large party. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. We had the opportunity to spend some time with the alpacas. Thank you Joe and Wendy for a fabulous weekend.
What a great place for old (or not so old) school friends to meet up with children.
I can't really say much more than the other 5 star reviews. Beautiful place, location, clean, just great really. And the alpacas are very cute!
A raucous hen party next door could have spoilt our stay but the owners Joe and Wendy were so apologetic and lovely that I can't even dock any stars for that!
The only thing which could be improved is the number of teaspoons in the kitchen, just not enough!
Thanks Wendy and Joe, wishing you lots of luck in the future.
