Holiday home With accommodation spread over the first floor of a detached, traditional converted barn in beautiful countryside, this charming property in the hamlet of New Hutton makes a sympathetically converted and well equipped holiday home. There are original features that have been retained in the property, such as crook beams and exposed stonework, and the gothic-style bedroom adds to the charm of the cottage. Outside is a garden with furniture and BBQ, while the local pub is just a 10 minute stroll away. Both the Dales and the southern Lakes can be easily reached, as can the town of Kendal.
Area The small hamlet of New Hutton, set in lovely countryside, makes a quiet and convenient base for getting to know both the southern Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales. There is plenty to see and do in this popular holiday area, with both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall, with its impressive topiary gardens nearby, as well as the town of Kendal, with its castle, art gallery and shops and restaurants set off cobbled streets. The walking in this area is superb, including limestone escarpments offering gentle walks and thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay.
Region Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

A warm and friendly greeting, set in beautiful countryside an ideal get away .... A warm and friendly greeting, set in beautiful countryside an ideal get away with the lake district on your doorstep, highly recommended
Had a wonderful week at Hollins Farm Barn.. It's very well equipped with lovely views. The location is perfect for trips to both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. The cottage is a good size, it seems difficult to find cottages for couples that aren't cramped.
Excellent location, nice and clean accommodation.. Friendly and helpful hosts. Highly recommended.
The cottage was located down a track, which the view from the front of the cottage was stunning! We even had Roe deer coming around the cottage which were lovely to see. There were many little touches including fresh flowers on our arrival, lots of information was available in folders. Overall we would consider booking again, as the amenities are close to hand, and not far from Bowness and many other lovely places of interest. Thank you, Julie and Graham!!
Hollins Farm Barn was the perfect place to stay for a peaceful, relaxing holiday.. The Lake District is all within a short driving distance as are parts of the Yorkshire Dales. It is easy to get to Windermere by train from Oxenholme station which is within walking distance of the cottage.
We had a very nice stay here and would happily return.
Julie and Graham greeted us on arrival and showed us around the cottage.. The cottage was lovely and clean and well appointed. They had even gone to the trouble to put up a Christmas Tree and decorate the living space.
Had a lovely week using the cottage as a base, even the mist on the lake cleared to let us have a cruise on Windermere.
Will be coming back in the near future.
A beautiful cottage in a lovely location.. The owners were really friendly and helpful and the cottage was one of the best equipped cottages we have ever stayed in. would highly recommend .
Had a wonderful short break at Hollins Farm Barn.. Julie and Graham were lovely, making us feel very welcome. They were unfailingly kind and helpful. The cottage ticked all our boxes although it was a very bumpy ride over a dirt track to get to the cottage itself. I was very impressed with the well-equipped kitchen which had an abundance of pots and pans, kitchen utensils, etc. Also impressed with the recycling crate as so many holiday lets fail to accommodate this. The bed was super comfy too. It was lovely to sit in the garden until late evening thanks to the good weather and take in the wonderful views. It's a short drive to the Station Inn pub where you can have exceptionally good pub grub in a friendly atmosphere. Oxenholme Station, from where you could travel to Windermere or further afield, even Edinburgh, is also a short car journey away and offers an alternative to driving.
Wonderful place to stay for both The Lake District and The Dales.. Being on the first floor gives great views and the cows and sheep close by just adds to the really rural feel (including one early morning bleating alarm clock!). Access is via a farm track over a cattle grid which is OK as long as your car has good ground clearance - our Ford Focus was fine.
Peace and quiet, cows and sheep! Very enjoyable and thoroughly recommended!
Wonderful place to stay.. Couldn't have asked for more. Julie and Graham were wonderful hosts and the cottage/dream home exceeded expectations. Would definitely recommend
A beautifully furnished, equipped barn with friendly welcoming hosts.
Very nice place. The owners were very nice and provided lots of information. We would definitely stay again.
Absolutely brilliant! There were beautiful views of the countryside, and it was relaxing and peaceful.
Owners were very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Had a very relaxing time, cottage was very comfortable.
This is a great property. It is well equipped, with all mod cons. The feel of the place makes you settle in right away, a real home from home.
A fantastic place to stay. It is a really well appointed accommodation and the owner seems to have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. We will definitely recommend to friends.
It was very well equipped with everything from pots and pans, bathroom essentials and local information, including OS maps of the surrounding areas.
A very spacious property for 2 persons. In a quiet location, this is the only holiday property on this site. There was good heating for late Autumn Winter use and friendly and helpful owners in the adjoining ex-farm house.
It was a lovely, comfortable, apartment, great to get home to relax after a day out walking. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could need. The position is ideal. When you are tucked up inside you feel miles away from anywhere, but Asda is only a few minutes away and Kendal only 10 minutes drive. A half hour drive takes you right into the Lakes or the Dales. There is still so much we would like to do, and hopefully we will return before too long.
Great little place with the most friendly owners you could ask for. Beautifully decorated cottage and within a short drive from all the lovely walks within the national park. Perfect!
This cottage was wonderful. Comfortable, clean, with everything you could need. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Perfectly situated for the lakes, with fabulous views from windows. This cottage is exceptional.
The cottage was in a very good position for both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. It was a very well equipped barn, comfortable and warm. We had a really good break.
Lovely place to stay in a quiet location. The barn had everything you would need and it was a very cosy place to come back to after cycling around the lakes. The owners were very friendly and we will be recommending the place to our friends and family.
It's difficult to elaborate on the fact that this cottage was perfect for what we wanted and would fit a range of needs. The location is ideal for a feeling of comforting seclusion whilst only being a stones throw from supermarkets, takeaways and Kendal centre. Coupled with the beautiful cottage itself and its non intrusive but very helpful owners, this holiday ticked all the boxes.
Stunning views from every window, a simply beautiful property. Lovely large sofa and a lovely place to stay. My Wife and I loved the fact there were plenty of pots. We will be back!
A good location and a good general appearance.
A very lovely home-from-home barn/cottage!
Hollins Farm Barn was first class. It was warm, comfortable and clean. The bed was really comfy and things like the bedding and towels were of good quality. The owners were helpful and friendly whilst respecting our privacy also. They left us toiletry's, salt, tea bags and oil etc which is something many don't supply. It was a very peaceful location. Well worth a visit!
Everything you could want from a holiday home - well equipped,comfortable, peaceful, great views..and not too far from amenitites and the mountains. We will certainly be back!
I liked the way the barn had been done-up so much that I didn't mind the awful weather we had during our visit. As a holiday home it was truly excellent. You don't mind staying in when the house is so nice! In particular I was impressed at the thought that had gone into things like even supplying emergency torches! There was a wide selection of books/DVDs/boardgames too.
The location was ideal for the lakes and surrounding area. The cottage was very peaceful and very comfortable.
We stayed in this cottage for a week and would have been delighted to stay for the summer; shame about work commitments! The owners were welcoming and helpful, but not imposing, and the cottage was delightful. Excellent location for walks in/visits to the Lake District, Howgills, Yorkshire Dales, and Morecambe Bay. Comfortable and well-equipped cottage, with very efficient central-heating, and safe off-road parking. One of the best cottages we have stayed in and would thoroughly recommend. We hope to return there soon...
This was a wonderful cottage, tastefully converted and furnished, very well-equipped and in a beautiful location. Our hosts were ideal hosts; friendly, thoughtful and helpful but not overpowering. One of the best cottages we have ever had the pleasure to stay in - and we've been on the self-catering cottage circuit for many years!
There was a warm welcome awaiting us at Hollins Farm Barn. As a gay couple this is important and made us feel very welcome from the outset. The first floor accommodation is nicely decorated with original beams and well-furnished with all the facilities you could need. There are nice views of the countryside and a pretty garden for sitting out in clement weather. There was plenty of space for storage of bikes and outdoor gear downstairs in the utility area. There were lots of books, guides, CDs and DVDs as well as free wifi. The heating and hot water was more than adequate, but would have benefitted from a programable timer. On the whole, the accommodation was very comfortable, although the bed would benefit from a better quality mattress. Overall this is a lovely place in a good location and good value.
So very well catered for - even the basic kitchen stuffs were there (tea, sugar etc). It was really nice and the owners were very welcoming and friendly and put us really at ease. It was like a home away from home, it really was.
Great location and setting. A lovely 'getaway' with excellent facilities which suited our needs.
Beautifully placed to gain access to the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, plus the Borders area. Easy access to the M6, and Kendal for shopping, yet quiet with nice views.
Friendly and helpful owners make it an excellent stay.
The barn was furbished to a high standard and filled with everything you would need for a self catering holiday. It is situated in a prime location just a mile from Kendal, close enough to be near the action but far enough away that you feel secluded and peaceful when there. The owners where very friendly and helpful and we would recommend the stay to anyone!
Great accommodation, situated in great area and actually managed to get good weather as well!
