What an absolutely stunning cottage - I would happily have this as my home and not change a thing!
We visited The Old Grainstore primarily for a wedding in the area, staying as 4 adults and 1 child and could not have been happier.
The owner (who was just lovely) contacted us prior to our visit and checked the age/gender of our child and made sure there were games / books / decor approraite and she felt well and truly special. She also checked to see if we had any specific requirements.
On arrival we had a basket of warm, freshly cooked scones waiting, along with local jam and a pack of eggs - complete with the hens names.
Everything you could want was provided (except a BBQ although I didnt ask if there was one)
There were logs for the fire - which, despite the warm weather, we lit - as it would be wrong to visit the lakes and not have a log fire burning.
There was a grassed area complete with picnic table, a football goal and swingball which was great and of course, the farm which we were free to roam.
Beds were v comfortable, furniture lovely, bathrooms great.
Decent location - a few local pubs that we tried and within 30 mins drive of many places to visit such as Bitts Park, Carlisle Castle, Ullswater Steamers, Hadrians Wall etc.
Would point out that this is not somewhere to stay if you're not driving.
I would not hesitate to stay here again. It really was lovely. Thank you
