  • "Only problem we had was when the electricity tripped and there was no access to the fuse box."

    However, this was dealt with quickly and efficiently.

  • "Ada’s Hideaway was absolutely gorgeous!"

    ! Everything was extremely clean, the location was fab, they had everything you needed. The fire was perfect and the sofas were so comfy. The beds were huge in every room and we all had a great nights sleep! There were 6 adults, 1 toddler and a dog and we all had plenty of room and definitely didn’t feel like we were living on top of each other. Would highly recommend staying here!

  • "This house is fantastic , exceptionally clean and accurate from even the welcome pack to the cleaning products left ."

    Had a lovely 4 night break away . Wi-Fi is fast here too The only 3 things that I’d mention ( not complaining) is the sofa is really uncomfortable and low to sit on The floors boards are so noisey when you are trying have a nap downstairs you think there going to fall through And there is no info pack recommended walks , takeaways , etc so had to ask neighbor s about local info

  • "A really well presented, modern property, very well equipped with everything you need."

    Beautiful bedding and hand soaps! The enclosed outside area was great for the dogs. At the time we were there we could not get the outside tap to work, and the fan in the en-suit bathroom appeared not to be working. There is no management on site, and we could not find a phone number for anyone at Sykes, so we could not contact anyone to resolve any problems. Sykes emails are sent from a no reply email address.

  • "Really nice property we loved our stay."

    Two ever so tiny things, the catch on the garden gate was sticking and quiet hard to get in and out of & also the duvets were a bit too heavy, but that’s just being picky! A great property.

  • "We had a really lovely short break at Aida’s Hideaway."

    It was a peaceful location on a farm, with horses in the fields for a view. The inside was beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you would need. The beds were super comfortable and bathrooms were super and clean. Highchair and travel cot available to use. Nice canal walk with the dogs a short distance from farm. Half an hours drive to Windermere were we hired a boat for couple of hours, which was good fun. Would certainly return again, hopefully for a longer stay next time.

  • "My family have just spent an amazing weekend at Ada’s hideaway and highly recommend this property."

    The property is set within a horse rehabilitation farm which was very quiet and tranquil. The barn was spotlessly clean and has everything you need to make your holiday extra special. The kitchen included all necessities and more. We had planned to eat out each evening but in the end cooked and stayed in as the facilities were so good. Each evening we ate outside in the garden. Each bedroom was very comfortable with high quality bedding and towels. The en-suite, bathroom and cloakroom are modern and very clean. The lounge had a wonderful view of the fields and a log burning stove which would be great to use in winter. I can’t recommend this property enough and look forward to staying there again soon.

    Thank you for your kind comments. It is lovely to see that you and your family enjoyed your time, and the facilities at the property. We hope to welcome you again. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "A wonderful holiday cottage, extremely well maintained in a beautiful area."

    The only downside to this property is that it is only accessible along stretches of single file country roads. If you are a nervous driver or not that confident behind a wheel then I would certainly think twice before choosing it.

    Thank you for your comments. We are pleased to read that you found the property to your liking. Further to your comments about the location- we will take a look at the property listing to make sure that it is correct. Thank you. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

The property

Tucked away amidst south Lakeland rural countryside in the quaint village of Stainton near Sizergh is Ada's Hideaway.

This breath-taking barn conversion benefits from a spacious, stylish and reverse-level interior with a woodburning stove, Juliet balcony with countryside views and three well-appointed ground-floor bedrooms as well as a spectacular location close to the market town of Kendal and the wonders of the Lake District National Park while being encompassed by the tranquillity of the countryside; the perfect choice for families or friends looking to explore Cumbria.

Underfloor heating runs throughout the bedrooms and ground floor perfect for those cosy nights in.

Head up the steps and make your way inside your new home-from-home to find a welcoming living/dining room with a crackling woodburning stove at its heart; unwind here on the plush blue sofa in front of the Smart TV or simply admire the views across the countryside from the floor to ceiling windows.

Later, head into the fully-equipped kitchen to rustle up a delicious meal to enjoy around the dining table or downstairs on the patio outside, perfect for an alfresco affair.

When the sky darkens over Ada's Hideaway, head back inside to wash off the day in the ground-floor bathroom before sloping off to sleep in either the super-king-size (zip/link) with handy en-suite, the king-size or the double; all equipped with Smart TVs for lazy mornings. If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic bolthole, head into the nearby village of Sizergh where you can stock up on all of your self-catering essentials at the local farm shop or treat your loved ones to a meal out at The Strickland Arms.

Continue north to find the iconic town of Kendal, immerse yourself in the area’s part by touring the Kendal Museum and the stunning ruins of Kendal Castle; the town also acts as a gateway to the impressive Lake District National Park. Outdoor enthusiasts will be in their element here thanks to the abundance of walking and hiking routes through picturesque countryside or up impressive hills including Old Man Coniston, Orrest Head and Scafell Pike; try something a little more unique by taking to the water of Lake Windermere on canoes, kayaks and even paddle boards! All this and more awaits at Ada's Hideaway!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
