    Out of our 2 week stay in 5 different locations, this was our absolute favorite. The property is stunning and peaceful - exactly as shown in the pictures. There is everything you need in the home, a full kitchen, full bathroom, living space, food recommendations, great Wi-Fi and more. If you're looking to hike in the area, there is also maps and trail recommendations. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming right away. They were always quick to communicate and provide their personal suggestions and recommendations. The home is close to multiple parks and town at the same time. We were sad to leave the Hollins Barn. We would recommend this home and hope to stay again!

    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.

    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.
