  • "The single beds were a bit hard and there was the racing on and we couldn’t get into the town when we got there it was blocked off and we had no pass."

    It would be good if they could let people know when they book with them that the racing was on. All the roads were blocked not good.

    I'm sorry that you felt your visit was spoilt by Cartmel Races taking place the same weekend as your booking. We would not mention this as a rule, as the cottage is situated 2 miles from the village and so is wholly not affected by the races at all. The village is open as usual for visitors on non-racing days. I will certainly look into purchasing new mattresses for the single beds. We did have to leave all doors and windows open after your departure as the cottage smelt of cigarette smoke, which isn't pleasant for guests coming in the same afternoon. The cottage is listed as 'non smoking' Property Owner

  • "Really comfortable and enjoyable stay - we really enjoyed the property and would certainly return."

    Very clean and tidy, lovely welcome gifts, milk and juice in the fridge, great back garden for our dogs and located very close to Cartmel. The bed was comfy and the bathroom/shower was great. There was also some information on the local area and should we have needed them, the hosts were next door. We spent almost everyday out and about until later in the afternoon and did not use the lounge area but should we have done, it was also very comfortable and cosy.

  • "The Byre is a beautifully converted barn, with high ceilings so it was very light and spacious."

    Everything was provided for a home from home stay, with some lovely welcoming touches from Sarah, including an Easter egg for my son. The beds were extremely comfortable. The back yard was secure and private, great for kids or dogs, both of which are welcome! The only thing missing in my opinion is a washing machine, the rest was absolutely perfect, we would definitely return

  • "Lovely accommodation in an ideal place for easy access to lots of tourist attractions."

    Fantastic heating and living spaces but could do with better mattresses as didn’t sleep well due to hard mattresses. Also not enough hot water, even with the booster switch, for everyone to have a shower in the morning.

  • "Cottage itself was lovely but whilst the cottage is listed as dog friendly you’re asked not to take your dogs into the living area meaning if you want to watch tv your dog needs to to stay down stairs in the kitchen."

    Facilities were pretty good but no washing machine. Cleanliness and location of the cottage were great and the couple that own the cottage were both super friendly.

    Thank you for your feedback. I would like to assure our future guests dogs are of course allowed in the sitting room. The stairgate is to help guests keep their dogs on hard floors whilst they dry off after enjoying their walks and days out, in what can be a wet and muddy Lake District. I will ensure this is made clear in the information for future guests. Property Owner

    As a family of 4 with a 10 and 3 year old there was plenty of room for us all and a good selection of games and dvds on top of what we brought ourselves. We would definitely like to visit again.

  • "This was our second visit to the Byre."

    The cottage is really comfortable and in a lovely part of the lakes, we had our teenage daughter and her friend with us and we all had a wonderful time. Motor boat on Coniston, Go ape tree top challenge at Grizedale, cycling in Grizedale, shopping in Kendal, Holker Hall and some lovely meals out. We will definitely be back. The owners were very helpful when we needed some help with our broken bike lock. A great holiday, thank you.

  • "My daughter and I enjoyed our short stay at The Byre, the instructions on how to find the cottage were clear and easy to follow."

    The only thing missing that would have made our stay more comfortable would be instructions on how to use the heating and gas fire. We arrived at The Byre after a very wet day out feeling damp and cold, after some time I did manage to get the radiator working in the living room. I never did work out the gas fire! Also information on local amenities/shops etc would have been helpful.

  • "I think you should make it clear that the nearest shop is in Cartmel which is 2 miles away, and the nearest pub is 1."

    5 miles away (up a steep hill if people are walking). The cottage itself and the area is beautiful and I couldn't have had a lovelier time I just think making the above clear will help people understand clearly the remoteness of it.
