  • "A lovely week in a perfect location."

    The facilities, cleanliness & comfort of the barn couldn’t be bettered. Helpful owners too to greet us and say goodbye to. Lovely little touches all around in terms of useful information, cleaning products and little extras such as hairdryer, tissues and tea/coffee were all appreciated.

    Well stocked, had everything we needed. Wonderful, comfortable furniture and bed to rest on after long walks in gorgeous countryside. Friendly, approachable owners who left you to your holiday but always felt close if you needed anything

  • "A very comfortable and lovely stay."

    The hosts were very accommodating and very knowledgeable about the area. They had fantastic ideas in where we could go for walks and those walks really made our stay. The cottage itself is fantastic and a real gem, roomy yet cosy. We really were able to relax here. Nothing was an issue for our hosts and they really went above and beyond. We will be definitely using them again when we return to the lakes.

  • "This was a beautiful break."

    The hosts Julie and Graham are lovely. It’s was nice to be welcomed, shown around and told where they were if you needed anything. We stayed when the weather was very bad but it was still a brilliant break. They had everything we needed there and it was a great size for the 3 of us. We had a 7 month old and wanted somewhere that felt homely and clean where we could relax and let little one be his noisy self.

  • "A beautiful property in an ideal setting to explore the Lakes."

    In a lovely private spot, which feels out in the country, yet just a short drive to Kendal and other beautiful spots like Windermere. Extremely clean, well equipped and comfortable. We had a great time and the hosts are smashing. Would recommend!

  • "We had a really lovely stay, the barn is situated in a great area to explore the lakes."

    We had a warm welcome from our host and found personal touches in the barn (great if you forgot your shampoo/shower gel, small amount of tea / sugar). One only suggestion would be a few hooks for our coats downstairs otherwise we had the perfect stay. Thank you

    Very spacious and well-equipped with countryside views from every room. Well away from hustle and bustle but with easy access to Windermere and the Lakes, and the Yorkshire Dales. Sizergh Castle (National Trust) and Sedbergh(for quiet country walks) are both a must-do.

    We even had Roe deer coming around the cottage which were lovely to see. There were many little touches including fresh flowers on our arrival, lots of information was available in folders. Overall we would consider booking again, as the amenities are close to hand, and not far from Bowness and many other lovely places of interest. Thank you, Julie and Graham!!

    The Lake District is all within a short driving distance as are parts of the Yorkshire Dales. It is easy to get to Windermere by train from Oxenholme station which is within walking distance of the cottage. We had a very nice stay here and would happily return.

    The cottage was lovely and clean and well appointed. They had even gone to the trouble to put up a Christmas Tree and decorate the living space. Had a lovely week using the cottage as a base, even the mist on the lake cleared to let us have a cruise on Windermere. Will be coming back in the near future.

  • "Had a wonderful short break at Hollins Farm Barn."

    Julie and Graham were lovely, making us feel very welcome. They were unfailingly kind and helpful. The cottage ticked all our boxes although it was a very bumpy ride over a dirt track to get to the cottage itself. I was very impressed with the well-equipped kitchen which had an abundance of pots and pans, kitchen utensils, etc. Also impressed with the recycling crate as so many holiday lets fail to accommodate this. The bed was super comfy too. It was lovely to sit in the garden until late evening thanks to the good weather and take in the wonderful views. It's a short drive to the Station Inn pub where you can have exceptionally good pub grub in a friendly atmosphere. Oxenholme Station, from where you could travel to Windermere or further afield, even Edinburgh, is also a short car journey away and offers an alternative to driving.

  • "Wonderful place to stay for both The Lake District and The Dales."

    Being on the first floor gives great views and the cows and sheep close by just adds to the really rural feel (including one early morning bleating alarm clock!). Access is via a farm track over a cattle grid which is OK as long as your car has good ground clearance - our Ford Focus was fine.

About the location


Kendal 3 miles; Windermere 12 miles.

New Hutton is a small traditional Cumbrian hamlet set in beautiful countryside, ideally placed for exploring Southern Lakeland and the Yorkshire Dales. Just 3 miles away is the historic town of Kendal, with a fine reputation for shopping, known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th Century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Visit The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, its regular collection holding portraits by Kendal-born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay. With other attractions such as the Museum of Lakeland Life, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, New Hutton provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
