We had a delightful one-week holiday at West Barn with our 3-month-old baby. Incredibly well-equipped for a holiday rental, comfortably furnished, spotlessly clean and perfectly positioned to explore the Lakes. Jane was a joy to deal with and a wealth of local knowledge. Even a couple of rainy days didn't dampen our stay - the perfect excuse to bunker down with newspapers (and wine!) at the lovely local pub and boardgames at the barn.
A wonderful place to stay. Perfectly placed for the Lakes or even popping into Scotland. Everything you could possibly need is available and Jane and Duncan leave some treats too.
It was lovely to meet up with my parents and they were even able to bring their dog, he is 17 years old and they are loathe to leave him behind these days.
Wonderfully comfortable beds, plenty of space for us, and more.
Word of warning re the local pub, the dog and gun......If you want to eat there, make sure you book, it is tiny! We did go for a drink or too later in the week and they are really friendly.
We also recommend the boot and shoe pub in nearby greystoke.
I would definitely recommend this wonderful place, and hope to come back again.
We love it here. Beautiful accommodation - clean, well furnished and modern. We've been five times now and we'll visit again soon. Thanks.
We stayed here as we were visiting family in Penrith and wanted to make a week of it.
The booking process was straightforward and Jane was happy to answer any questions we had.
We were planning to arrive late so this was not a problem and the welcome pack was very welcome. Waking up to the smell of fresh bread is great.
The property is excellently finished with good quality bedding and furnishings and had everything we needed.
Skelton is less than 10 mins from the motorway and we found it easily accessible to the local area, the lakes and beyond.

My partner, 1 year old son and I stayed in west barn at the start of May. It is one of, if not the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in. We were very comfortable here and had everything we needed. Jane kindly organised for a high chair and travel cot to be set up for our arrival which is a lovely touch and saved us the hassle of packing these large items. The cottage itself is decorated beautifully and has everything you need. I particularly enjoyed the roll top bath in the upstairs bathroom. The dining area was another favourite feature. I left behind my charger and Jane returned it hassle free also. We are looking forward to returning in future.
