  • "Lovely comfortable cottage , we had a great stay at little barn."

    My grandson especially enjoyed walking down to Grange over Sands as its not to far from the cottage and playing crazy golf etc. we recommend this cottage for dogs too as they had lots of walks. Panoramic view from windows and outside seating area. Would stay again.

  • "Little Barn has a lovely view over the Sands."

    The Barn is absolutely beautiful, clean tidy and well cared for. We can't recommend it enough and enjoyed our stay. Although the garden is enclosed by a horizontal thin line wired fence, our dogs were able to escape with ease into the neighbouring field. (A reference in the information pack asked us not to let dogs into the neighbouring field). We would like to see the fence upgraded which we are sure could be easily done. Our holiday would then have been perfect. Terry and Clare

  • "Been to Grange many times, first time at Little Barn, what a find, in a beautiful location with views from the patio, (two to choose from) with the most glorious views over to the bay towards Morecambe, Silverdale etc."

    The barn is set on one level, with all things to hand, clean, tidy a beautiful bathroom, well set out kitchen area. Televisions in all rooms, though with that view you would not need them! Have already booked again. Our new favourite place in Grange/Cartmel.

  • "The property LITTLE BARN was beautiful in every respect; both inside and out."

    We are aware in the advertising that pets can stay there but we feel it is definitely NOT pet friendly, by pets we assume that dogs will be most likely to stay there, As soon as we opened the door to Little Barn we were met with a notice basically saying that pets can only be allowed to sit on the lounge floor and go nowhere else in the property. There were actually two big notices saying the same thing and also stating we would incur a fine if not complied with, We always take covers for everything anyway and always have. My Husband did mention this notice to the owners whilst we were there. Never have we had this before and we have stayed in your cottages before. The last one being on Holy Island last year. We really cannot recommend Little Barn to any pet owners as being pet friendly as it clearly is not. It seems such a shame as the property is perfect in every other way and we would have loved to have stayed there again ,

    Hi Firstly I’d like to thank you for staying at Little Barn and also give thanks for the lovely water paintings you did whilst visiting. I just want to try clear up the issue in this feedback. I’m aware you spoke to my dad about the sign we have up about not allowing dogs on furniture/beds and how it had upset you, the reasoning behind this is that, as you’ll well know if you are dog people, the hair of dogs will literally imbed into duvets/bed sheets making it nearly impossible to remove, this is obviously very frustrating to us as owners who have to then replace said bedding. And the second reason is being mindful that some people have allergies to pet hair so it is unfair to allow bedding that is covered in dog hair to then be reused for someone who has a potential allergy as I said it is near on impossible to get rid of it so unfortunately it does go straight into the bin. I’m aware your issue is that you would consider that as not pet friendly but that’s simply not the case, we just don’t think it is necessary that dogs go on to the beds, so then we don’t have to go out and buy fresh bedding everytime a customer chooses to allow that to happen. I have tried calling a few times to explain this to you but had no luck getting through so hope this clears things up and you can hopefully see our point of view. To clarify for any future guests we absolutely welcome dogs, Infact, we encourage them, we just ask they stay off beds, in accordance to the terms and conditions that are agreed to with sykes Thank you Leah Property Owner

  • "Had a wonderful stay."

    Batteries duly refreshed and recharged. Perfect location and views. My only slight criticism would be I’m not sure it could be classed at pet friendly.The patio wasn’t secure and we were constantly concerned about them exploring the rest of the bungalow. Also the sofa and chairs were very uncomfortable.

  • "Lovely cottage,great views."

    Would suggest better fencing between garden and field as dogs can get through at the moment so not secure.

    Excellent property as a disabled person would have liked a higher supportive chair I struggled with low chair I know u carnt cater for everyone but maybe put one in the bedroom that could be used if needed otherwise the most beautiful location spotlessly clean was sorry to leave views were spectacular and the peace and quite was amazing thankyou

    Hi Suzzane, thanks so much for the comments on Little Barn. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. If you decide to book again in future please do let us know if you require certain things as we do provide them but obviously as you know we do not have the space to have them out all the time, so we keep them in storage up at our personal homes. Usually when we have disabled or elderly guests, they let us know in advance so we can have it prepared for them on arrival (such as a seat for the shower) Thanks, Leah. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage!"

    We stayed there over Christmas, and the owners had put so much thought and effort in to decorate the property and make it feel festive. Little Barn was spotlessly clean, beds really comfortable and the view across the fields to the sea were stunning and are worth every penny spent to stay there! The dog loved exploring the patio, lawn and raised decking. We will be booking again soon!

  • "We had a wonderful stay - I feel very smug that I found this little gem."

    A couple of tiny things that might have improved our stay: We found that the garden fence was not secure; this meant we had to keep our dog on a lead at all times, which was disappointing as it was a huge reason we booked Little Barn. The kitchen knives were overdue being sharpened - having a knife sharpener available would have been great. The barn was very comfortable, although we did find that the pillows in the bedroom were absolutely enormous! Very luxurious but not the comfiest to sleep on. Oh my god the shower was awesome - 10/10. Thank you again for such a lovely stay - between the lovely little barn and the truly awesome views we were very, very happy indeed.
