    • “Fantastic place to stay with young children”

    • “Finding places to stay with a two year old and ten month old is always a challenge. It was lovely to stay somewhere equipped with cot, high chair, stair gates and even plastic cutlery! The cottage was beautiful and the garden ideal for playing out. Well situated for days out including the south lakes animal park and aquarium. The owners were really helpful when we needed them and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Woodside Barn.”

Excellent, cosy and great value for money.everything about the cottage was appreciated and nice welcome touch of fresh eggs qine and milk from the friendly owner who maintained privacy considering living on the same hamlet. Would recommend especially a xmas stay as so cosy and warm. Ulverston close for shops etc. But not too close....”

Dalton animal park our family's favourite location- very closeby. No tumble drier but clothes soon dried on clothes horse and clothes line provided. Would go back tomorrow and see the many sites not yet visited!”

    • “Really nice barn conversion with awesome views and surroundings. Only downside is the remoteness. It really is slap bang in the middle of nowhere with only ulverston nearby for those sans voiture Steve was extremely friendly and gave us a free lift into town one night Excellent stay with great accommodation”

    • “Clean and spacious property in a quiet location”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We had no contact from the owners on arrival, and had to phone them with a query, despite the fact, we discovered later, that they lived on site. The property was clean and spacious and just what we were expecting, though I feel the description of the bathroom as "luxury" is stretching the point a bit. It is a quiet location with plenty to do within a reasonable distance, the weather was poor so we didn't get the opportunity to explore the immediate area as much as we would normally. The building work going was a bit disconcerting as it would appear the holiday accommodation is being added to, if this is the case it will give it more the feel of a holiday complex. The biggest down side for me is the proximity of the wind turbines, and I cannot believe permission was given to site these monstrous white elephants in such an area. I live in a National Park and fear for its future if these things are allowed to spread.”

    Mr Kennedy, Huddersfield, May 2014

    • “The peace and quiet was lovely; it was wonderful to just sit in the garden and do nothing with only the birds and sheep to listen too. We couldn't of stayed in a nicer place, it was a haven.”

    Mr Jansen, Worcester, April 2014

    • “Excellent location. Cottage is quiet with beautiful views but close to busier areas like the beach and mountain areas. Owners also live on site but are unobtrusive so we could still relax and enjoy our holiday. Very comfortable cottage and a good size for a family of four. We really liked the children's books and the DVDs in the cottage.”
