“Superb accommodation and a very welcoming host”
Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a three night stay at the beginning of September in this beautifully converted dairy at the rear of the owners' farmhouse. Raphaela is a friendly, interesting and very welcoming host and the stylish, well presented cottage met our needs ideally. The gift of prosecco to help us celebrate our wedding anniversary was a very kind and much appreciated gesture. For us the location was perfect, a few minutes from Carlisle but a world away in terms of peace and tranquility. The Carlisle-Settle return rail journey was stunning and we enjoyed exploring the history of Carlisle Castle and Hadrian's Wall. In all, we had a comfortable and relaxing short stay in a fascinating area. Many thanks to Raphaela.

“Nice clean accommodation in a rural setting.”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our hostess, Rapheala, was a great host and very attentive to our needs. The apartment - a converted dairy - is modern and clean. It is a 15 minute drive from the pleasant town (or small city) Carlisle. Being situated in a farming environment, it does have a few farmyard smells which you need to get used to, but if you feel like a few days away from he city, then this just adds to the atmosphere. One of the great advantages of the property is its proximity to somr amazing sites and musejms along Hadrian's Wall.

“very relaxing”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed for a long weekend with the intention of visiting Carlisle and Hadrian's wall but once we parked the car we didn't move it again. The cottage has all the basics you need. But at a very high standard. The cottage had so many great features, great comfortable bed, lovely, easy to use shower. High ceilings, beams.

the weather during our stay was spectacular so we just opened the patio doors and sat in the sun. watching the birds flying round the courtyard. The enclosed garden accross the lane was great for sitting watching fish in the pool and feeding the very friendly chickens.

The welcome at Robin was second to none. Raphaela and Steve were very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. They were there if you needed anything.

“Simply delightful - Perfect”
Reviewed 14 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

Raphaela and Steve made us very welcome as soon as we arrived at the cottage, providing us a guided tour of the facilities and grounds. My partner and I chose Robin as our little retreat before he travelled to Australia. Robin provided wonderfully peaceful surroundings which allowed us to spend much needed quality time together. The self-contained cottage is well equipped and finished to a high standard. Wine and fruit on arrival was a lovely touch.
If privacy and tranquility are what you are looking for, Robin is the place for you. If we were to offer any tips for improving it, they would be minor things such as the following: a larger sofa in the lounge area - my partner is 6ft 1in tall, so it was a bit of a squeeze for the two of us. In addition, the duvets were two single duvets which much to my partners annoyance, I managed to win the duvet battle each night and he was left with none. Finally, wifi connectivity was sporadic - I blame this on the thick walls of the cottage, other than these minors pointts, it was perfect and simply delightful.
Overall, a truly memorable stay and I cannot thank Steve and Raphaela enough. I highly recommend this beautiful little holiday home for two. I really do not want to leave.
