The barn is an ideal place, stunning view, brand new, and well designed, architecturally. I and my friends enjoyed staying there quite a lot. We spent a good bit of time in the barn rather than going out. This place is worth more than what we have paid. Perfect for a group of people. Lindsay is full of great hospitality. We got the lovely welcoming scone and tea on the arrival day! Thank you for hosting us! Hope we will have a chance to visit you again.
The Sturdy Barn is an ideal location when exploring the southern Lake District. The photos don’t really do it justice it is much larger and brighter than what you can actually see. Both Lindsay and her husband were very accommodating and we had fresh scones and cream on arrival and a bowl of fruit which was a lovely gesture.
The barn itself can accommodate six people, all rooms are of a high quality, comfy, clean and roomy. The barn is open plan and you can tell the thought that has gone into the architectural vision of the building, giving as much light and views possible of the surrounding area. We stayed here for five days over new year and loved it and would definitely go back.
The barn is set on a quiet road but only a few minutes to the main road too which is surprisingly quiet, this location means you get to be away from it all yet in close distance to explore whether its walking, cycling etc. You cant get sick of the views form the barn whether you are watching TV, eating breakfast or entertaining the views are lovely.
The downstairs area is really big with a full sized table, great for entertaining and fully equipped with all mod cons too. I would thoroughly recommend you to check it out yourself!
Thanks for a lovely stay!
