“Slice of heaven”
Reviewed 26 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

One of the most beautiful and individual cottages I have ever seen. Had such a relaxing time and couldn't have enjoyed the mini break more. The wine, cookies and chocolates from Lisa and Mark were a lovely touch as was the milk and eggs. The views were phenomenal and my partner and I got quite used to waking up to such wonderful sights, even for the few short days we stayed. Very much hope to return again. Thank you for having us!

Liked best: The open lay=out

“Perfect romantic cottage”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We recently spent a long weekend at the cow byre. We loved it from the welcome card, wine and chocolates to the home from home comforts.
The cottage had everythig we needed and was surrounded by lovely walks and close by to Kirby Stephen.
We are looking forward to returning in the bear future.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.

“Romantic, perfectly planned out cottage”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

From the wine, cookies and welcome card to the wonderful slippers and bathrobes it was clear that the owners really care about this property and the guests that stay there.
Really great attention to detail made this the perfect getaway cottage. The photos really don't do it justice. Everything was just wonderful
I would highly recommend staying here - although possibly not in January as the weather was appalling!
The restaurant guide came in handy and on Saturday night we had a great indian meal in Kirkby Stephen, about 5 miles away.

“Perfection”
Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I booked this for a weekend treat for my wife's birthday and have to say it was the best decision I made! It is simply incredible. The pictures do not do it justice and if you are looking for a perfect, romantic weekend (or longer if you are lucky!) then this has to be the place.

Lovely personal touches, such as chocolate, bottle of wine and cookies waiting upon our arrival and fresh milk and eggs all made for a wonderfully relaxing three nights. A perfect base to tour the Lakes but plenty of local walks if you dont fancy driving once you get there.

I cannot recommend The Cow Byre enough and hope that one day we will be fortunate enough to return to this small piece of heaven. :)
