    located in a quiet part of the lake district,on a working farm we found the place to be peaceful ,clean and comfortable. A bit of a problem with flies however but that might be to do with cattle nearby, we did spray the place a few times but a insect-o-cuter device would be better ,dont like spraying chemicals in the place where i live and sleep. Wee old farm cat came visiting each day -she is a sweet gentle creature and very trusting as well a friendly. We saw the owner a few times but she was rather busy or pre-occupied ,the visitor books in cottage show many people felt very welcome, with a gift of wine and fudge etc ,but that was not our experience ,perhaps it had been discontinued. I cannot say we felt overly welcome ,sad because the place itself is very nice.

    We loved the area around The Old Byre as there was plenty to do. We loved the layout and the comfortability of the place and the ease of relaxing. It was clean except when we were there, there was an infestation of wood lice. All of the garden wall and in the cottage and we even found some in our bed!!! Normally we would have mentioned this to the staff, but we felt awkward with the cottage owner 'Susan'. Her attitude and way of speaking to us made us feel uncomfortable, and made us feel that we couldn't relax as we were being judged despite not doing anything wrong. If she wasn't affiliated with the cottage and the wood lice problem was rectified, we would certainly book again. But due to Susan owning the cottage, I suspect this is unlikely to happen.

    Amazing accomodation, very spacious, nice and pieceful even with guests in the accomodation next door. Hot tub was definitely the best bit. Will be booking here again in the future.

    Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. The place was very comfortable and cosy. Would highly recommend for a group looking for a relaxing break away

    We recently stayed at the Old Byre and had a great time. The host was accommodating, the cottage itself was extremely clean, and we had a wonderful time using the hot tub! The lounge areas were all clean and the bathroom was excellent. The area, whilst beautiful to sit in, did not have a lot going on around it. We visited Maryport on a Saturday afternoon and literally saw five people! However, Cockermouth isn't far and the whole idea with these things is to relax so I can't complain really! I'd definitely stay again if I was to book up for the same area.

    We absolutely loved our 2 night trip away for our anniversary! Susan is a great welcoming host. The weather wasn't great but a short drive (walk in the sun) and there are great local pubs with good food! (Highly recommend The Belle Vue). The views are lovely and we will definitely be coming back!

    Lovely spacious clean cottage, with lovely relaxing hot tub set within beautiful scenic views. We had a two night stay at the Byre, it just wasn’t long enough. Susan was lovely and welcoming, we would definitely like to come back and fully recommend if your looking for a relaxing escape
