  • "We had a lovely stay at Willowsway Barn though felt it would have been useful to know that there was building work happening on site."

    We were lucky and only had an hour or two of noise the first day and as it was a weekend stay we weren’t disturbed too much over the weekend. Anyone staying from Monday for a week might be more annoyed. Each morning we were also woken before 7.30am by dogs barking, which we assumed were the owner’s living nearby? Overall, a lovely barn with high spec facilities.

  • "There was an issue with the log fire which someone attended asap, small issue but others will need to know to lift tge grate if room fills with smoke."

    You can hear neighbours at times, and they had an extention from window to a caravan which hung across door way and could of been dangerous due to lack of outside lighting. Our stay despite the comments was great and would definitely consider returning again soon. Great location, great views, great comfortable home with plenty of room. 5 star

  • "This cottage is spectacular, the area is beautiful."

  • "This is a superbly appointed holiday home!"

    ! Absolutely nothing has been overlooked by the owners. It’s very much off the beaten track but this was no issue for us. Ideal for large families. The home is spotlessly clean, the information provided is detailed and clear and they have clearly gone above and beyond for travellers’ essentials. We were very sad to be leaving and wished we had gone for a full week. Well done Sykes for this brilliant find

Sizergh 3 miles.

Perched on the outskirts of Stainton in Cumbria, is this superb semi-detached barn conversion, Willowsway Barn.

Boasting three floors, each offering traditional features of exposed stonework and original beams, as well as a fantastic location for accessing Kendal and Grange-Over-Sands, Willowsway Barn makes for a wonderful retreat for a group of friends or family of 10 looking to explore the Lakes as well as the Yorkshire Dales AONB, Forest of Bowland AONB, Arnside & Silverdale AONB.

Take advantage of the ample off-road parking available for six cars, before unloading your bags and being greeted by a delightful gravelled front garden, where you can look forward to savouring the last of the day’s sunshine with a glass of wine.

Beginning on the lower-ground-floor, you will find a well-presented king-size bedroom with en-suite shower room, ideal for those who prefer a little more privacy, as well as an additional shower room and cloakroom, eliminating the need to stand in those morning queues!

You will also benefit from a handy utility room on this floor which houses a tumble dryer and washing machine for keeping your holiday wardrobe fresh.

Make your way up to the ground-floor, where you will find three more well-presented bedrooms, two doubles and a twin, ensuring ample sleeping arrangements for all.

These bedrooms are served by a contemporary bathroom, where you can indulge in a soothing soak as your towel warms on the heated towel rail nearby.

After a satisfying meal, take your pick of plush seating to retreat to ready to escape reality with your favourite film on the Smart TV, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

When sleep calls, climb the steps up towards a delightful mezzanine double bedroom, where you can enjoy a refreshing night's embrace.
