UPDATE REGARDING BOOKINGS FOR 2021 IN VIEW OF CONTINUING CORONAVIRUS COVID-19
AFTER LOSING NEARLY ALL OUR BOOKINGS FOR 2020 BECAUSE REGULATIONS DID NOT ALLOW MORE THAN 6 PEOPLE TO GATHER IN ONE PROPERTY, WE HAVE MADE THE SAD DECISION TO LIMIT BOOKINGS FOR 2021 TO NO MORE THAN 6 GUESTS INSTEAD OF THE USUAL 10, (THIS INCLUDES BABIES AND CHILDREN). WE ARE SORRY THAT THIS MAY BE DISAPPOINTING TO PREVIOUS GUESTS HOPING TO COME AGAIN. YOU WILL SEE REFERENCE TO 5 BEDROOMS THROUGHOUT THE WEBSITE, WHICH IS STILL THE CASE, BUT ONLY 3 OF THESE CAN BE USED DURING YOUR HOLIDAY.
ALL BOOKINGS MADE FOR 2021 WILL BE PROVISIONAL, AND CAN BE CANCELLED BY US, THE OWNERS, OR BY THE GUESTS, IF GOVERNMENT ORDERS OR ADVICE MEAN THOSE BOOKINGS SHOULD NOT TAKE PLACE. IN THAT CASE WE WILL EITHER OFFER TO MOVE YOUR BOOKING TO ANOTHER DATE OR GIVE A FULL REFUND OF THE DEPOSIT. FOR THE SAFETY OF THOSE CLEANING THE BARN AND WASHING THE LAUNDRY WE WILL ALSO BE ALLOWING AT LEAST 3 DAYS, AND PREFERABLY A WHOLE WEEK, BETWEEN BOOKINGS TO ALLOW ANY POSSIBLE INFECTION TO NATURALLY DISSIPATE AND TO GIVE THE PREMISES AN EXTRA DEEP CLEAN BETWEEN BOOKINGS.
GUESTS WILL BE ASKED TO FOLLOW SOME GUIDANCE TO AVOID CATCHING OR PASSING ON THE VIRUS WHILST STAYING IN OUR COTTAGE. THIS IS BASED ON GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS, AND THIS CAN BE SEEN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS PAGE
PLEASE TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE IN THE MEANTIME
This beautiful converted sandstone barn provides spacious and comfortable self-catering accommodation for up to 6 people in perfect rural surroundings - a great choice for you, your family and friends to enjoy a "de-stress" holiday or short break. You will find peace and beauty in the undiscovered and unspoilt Eden Valley, and excitement nearby in the adventure capital of England - the Lake District is just half an hour away.
With a choice from 5 bedrooms - 2 double bedded and 3 twin-bedded - and lovely open plan, exposed-beam dining area and sitting room with log-burning stove, well equipped kitchen and 2 bath/shower rooms, as well as a garden with lovely views, it has all you could need for that long planned get-together to catch up and chill.
Set in a beautiful Conservation Area village, at the base of the Pennine Hills and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty it is convenient for the M6 with junction 40 only 20 minutes away, a stress-free 30 minute drive away from the Lake District, and less than an hour to Carlisle, Scotland and Hadrian's Wall, and with great on- and off-road walks and cycle rides straight from the door, there is truly something for every level of activity (or inactivity!)
We have a cot, high chair and stair gates to make life easier if you are bringing a baby or toddler, and 2 pets are welcome. There is off-road parking for 4 (or 5 small) cars at the front and a high, secluded garden at the rear looking over fields. Good WiFi connection is provided.
Short breaks are available for all dates. Special offers for last minute breaks often available - see prices.

Sue and Bob look forward to welcoming you this lovely and unspoilt part of the world
