Fabulous forgot to write in the visitors book please pass on my thanks to Mrs .... Fabulous forgot to write in the visitors book please pass on my thanks to Mrs Turner for a truly wonderful Christmas stay
It's a good, clean, functional space.. I can understand why others might have issues with the shower - power shower it isn't - but we'd read up and are used to country living, so this met our expectations. We were given plenty of firewood and were warm and comfortable on a long wet weekend of walking and biking. We were well looked after.
Mr Rostron, November 2019
This was our first time staying in a cottage and it was perfect, had everything we needed, great views, quite area, warm and cozy cottage.. Loved our stay at the Granary would definatily recommend!
The cottage was very nice and in a beautiful location.. Rooms were very spacious so everyone could fit in comfortably. Overall the cottage was tidy and clean and we had a good holiday.
House is well equipped, everything needed was available.. Log fire was really lovely and the cottage overall was very comfortable. Access to look around the farm and see the workings, they are very helpful and your encouraged to look around (very nice)
The house was cosy and provided everything we needed.. The photos of the view didn't do it justice, the location was so much more beautiful in person. The house is in a very rural location so wouldn't be for everybody but was exactly what we wanted. We arrived to fresh cake in the fridge and where also pleased to find that the TV was connected to the wifi which meant we could watch Netflix in the evenings. A couple of things to note is that the shower water pressure wasn't very good & the smoke alarm in the kitchen got set off a couple of times when we where cooking even though we had the extractor fan switched on - other than this i'd highly recommend!
The general comfort of the cottage was great beds really good sofas good but the things I would like to point out is the shower was absolutely terrible no pressure also it was disappointing that the woodburner glass was broken on one of the doors which then made the whole cottage smokey and made it unusable and we booked it to enable us to have this.. The other negative was that dogs are not allowed on the garden which means you have to walk up the road each time which isn't ideal first and last thing, I wouldn't have booked it had i realised. The views are truly stunning from the cottage tho and although quite remote a lovely setting. Being welcomed with a gorgeous cake and milk on arrival. Will definately be returning to the Lakes as only touched the surface with gorgeous walks.
Such a lovely spacious cottage in a beautiful location.. Everything went very smoothly and efficiently. The owner was very pleasant and the homemade cake was a lovely surprise.
The Granary is a lovely cottage with open plan living area and all rooms are really big.. The views are incredible from the patio and gravelled area beyond. On arrival there was a homemade Victoria sponge cake and jug of milk which was lovely! The kitchen has everything you need and a large fridge freezer, and we had Asda deliver shopping to the cottage soon after we arrived - very worthwhile! There were only 2 slight negatives to this property - the beds are really firm and we all found that our backs ached after a few nights. Although this property is advertised as dog friendly, our host told us not to let them use the garden as a loo and to take them for a walk. Everywhere else I’ve stayed, we’ve only been asked to pick up after our dogs which we would do anyway. When you’re on holiday, the last thing you feel like doing is taking a walk along the road with 2 lively dogs several times a day! Despite the loveliness of the property and location, had we known about this rule, we wouldn’t have stayed here. There is livestock everywhere and walking in the area was almost impossible unless dogs were on leads. In the Duddon valley below, we found lovely riverside spots to chill next to. Also, Silecroft beach is great for dogs or a beach horse ride!
The location and views were far better than the advert was able to convey, and exceeded our expectations.. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. We had a great time, and it was an excellent place to stay with our 18 month old son.
The only thing that let this cottage down was the lack of a washing machine .... The only thing that let this cottage down was the lack of a washing machine inside it was kept in the garage and no washing line but no doubt if needed Mrs turner would of let you use hers if it's peace and quiet with stunning views and local wildlife and great walks then this is the place for you the cottage is warm cosy homely with all that you need with a fresh cake and a jug of milk waiting for you on arrival
The Granary was a great place to stay.. Cottage is equipped in everything a family with children may need - the kitchen especially. Rooms in the cottage are very spacious and bed/bedding is of a good quality. This together with the place being kept lovely and warm made out early April stay very pleasant. Log burner adds another lovely aspect to a relaxing stay. The views are breath taking!
Please be prepared for a digital detox once in Lake District in general as the phone reception is not great however The Granary does have Wi-Fi so you can catch up on your daily fix in the evenings if needs be!
Overall, we have had a great stay with 3 children and a dog. Highly recommend The Granary for your Lake District base.
The cottage is in a beautiful peaceful area on a working farm.. The cottage itself is very clean, well equipped and homely.
THIS WEEK WE SPENT AT THE GRANARY WAS PERFECT FOR OUR SONS 50th BIRTHDAY, SO MUCH TO DO AND SEE IN THIS AREA.. . BOAT TRIP ON ULLSWATER, STEAM TRAIN TRIP AND A MEAL IN THE RISTERANT AT MILLOM WAS MOUTH WATERING
An amazing location with picturesque views that take your breath away! Everything we needed was at hand within a perfectly resourced facility!
This cottage is in an extremely rural location which for us was perfect however future people considering this property should be aware of this as it wouldn't be for everyone..
The absolute perfect place to come back after a day of entertaining the kids. It's quiet, beautiful and has the most amazing views. The cottage is very well equipped and if you are ever short of anything the owners are just next door. The kids enjoyed exploring the farm and getting lost in the fields. It is a very safe place, so need to worry. Hope you all get to visit, it's truly amazing.
The Granary was a lovely, spacious cottage in fantastic location. Well equipped with lots of storage space and room in bedrooms.
Log stove a bonus on cold winter days when weather against getting out and about.
Great family cottage in a stunning location. Amazing views and walks from the front door.
The cottage was in a beautiful, quiet, peaceful spot with stunning views across the valley. The owner gave us a warm welcome.
We particularly liked the quiet and peaceful location, it's scenic beauty and lovely walks close by. The views from the farm were spectacular. The cottage was comfortable, well equipped and spacious. The wood burner was cosy in the evenings. There were also interesting places to visit quite near by. Outside was a nice patio area for BBQ's etc. We received a warm welcome from the owner and a delicious cake and some milk. It was a great get-away-from-it-all holiday. We even heard, then saw a cuckoo.
A beautiful location with lovely views. A fabulous spacious cottage (bigger than our house!) with plenty of space for four adults and a toddler. Had a well equipped kitchen and laundry facilities which were very useful for our toddler.
A great place - very scenic, very quiet. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.

The property was far more spacious than evident from the photographs and the view was also much more impressive than the photograph on the website.
