Stayed in Sunny Brown Barn 1st week of July. Lovely barn conversation fitted to a high standard in superb location for exploring central Lake District. We booked through Heart of the Lakes and had complimentary access to the Salutation Spa in Ambleside which came in useful at the end of a long walk and rainy afternoon. Recommended!

My Wife and I joined my daughter and her husband for a 4 night stay at Sunny Brow. When we arrived we weren't sure what we were about to stay in. What a surprise, we stayed in the recently converted barn, The Hay Loft. Phillip has done an excellent job, his work is to the highest standard. This two bedroom...

On our way home from a perfect stay at Sunny Brow farm. Philip and Suzy, complimented by their three lovely children, are the perfect hosts ; you know they are around for information or advice but they don't intrude on your holiday . The barn has been renovated to a high standard and is very homely. It was lovely relaxing...

Just got back from an amazing time at Sunny Brow Barn. The barn is stunning and is surrounded by gorgeous countryside and wildlife. Idyllic location with fairy like woodland and running steams - blissful. We walked everyday if not in the locality but to The Drunken Duck which was 15 minutes away or took a short journey to Tarn Hows...

Sunny brow barn is a beautiful, high quality conversion. We stayed for a week of walking and exploring the area. We enjoyed morning yoga with Susie and evening massages from professional and knowledgeable practitioners. We also had dinner at the wonderful Drunken Duck which isn't far down the road. Highly recommend this place and fully intend to return ourselves.

It has taken me too long to get round to writing this review. We rented all three yurts and came to stay as a family - parents, son + wife, daughter + husband. My parents were hesitant about staying outdoors in a yurt but they loved it (except dad didn't bring wellies but that was his fault!) The yurts are...

My husband and I have just returned from a fantastic long weekend at Sunny Brow Farm cottage and we can’t recommend it enough to anyone wanting to visit the lakes. The farm itself is quiet and idyllic and in a great location for walking and for visiting all the sights including Ambleside and Coniston. The cottage itself is perfect, it...

Fantastic location, yurt hidden away in the woods next to a stream & small waterfall - how idyllic. Yurt is well furnished, small kitchen area is handy for cooking, especially with the gas grill & BBQ outside. Toilet block clean & tidy. Huge area (woods & stream) for kids to play & explore.

We had a wonderful few days in this idyllic setting in the Lake district. It was the best of both worlds in terms of having the comfort of a hotel and the remoteness of a camping set up. True definition of glamping. We chose a yurt as opposed to a tent as we have a little girl so we wanted...

“we were in the higher, 2nd Yurt - and believe this gives the most private position. If you have young children however, the lower Yurt over the bridge would be fabulous”
