There are many fantastic things to say about Pickle Barn, but for us the best thing was the view - on a good day (we were very lucky) you can see the lake district and the yorkshire dales, as well as the howgill hills and some lovely farmland. Does it need to be said that the location is fantastic ? We spent 2 days in the Lakes ( 30 mins away) , 1 day in the Dales (similar distance) and the rest of the time more locally - we love Kirby Lonsdale, this was out third visit and it justs grows on us. It was our first time at Pickle Barn and we will certainly be back - friendly owners and a good welcome with lots of thoughtful 'extras' , immaculatly clean, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, lots of outside space, peace and quiet. it was lovely to eat breakfast with the doors wide open and the sun streaming in ... missing it already.
