Hollins Farm Barn Countryside Cottage description

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.

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.

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.

Very nice place. The owners were very nice and provided lots of information. We would definitely stay again.

A beautifully furnished, equipped barn with friendly welcoming hosts.

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.

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.

Excellent property.
Mr Watson

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 very well equipped with everything from pots and pans, bathroom essentials and local information, including OS maps of the surrounding areas.
Mr Hodgetts
September 2011
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.
Mrs Thirlwell
March 2013
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.
Mr Easterbrook
November 2012
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.
Mr Pilcher
May 2013
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.
Mr Holt

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!

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!

Great location and setting. A lovely 'getaway' with excellent facilities which suited our needs.
Mrs Daffern
November 2010
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.
October 2013
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!
Dr Allen-Collinson
June 2011
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!
Mrs Corrigin
September 2010
Great accommodation, situated in great area and actually managed to get good weather as well!
January 2012
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!
August 2011
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...

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.
November 2010
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!
November 2010
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.
