Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. I could fault nothing. Accommodation excellent,quiet and with in reach of all amenities. We wanted for nothing. Oct 2012.
  2. We loved the property - it’s location and the space inside. March 2012.
  3. Beautiful setting, lovely house. Feb 2012.
  4. Excellent cottage in superb location. Walk one way into Pooley Bridge and the other to take you straight up to the high fells. Some of the other visitors comments are spot on saying that the photos on the website do not do the cottage justice. May 2011.
  5. Welcoming cottage very clean and cosy Location within easy reach of village amenities by car or 15/20 minutes walk - Plenty of local walks and pubs nearby for your thirst or hunger. May 2011.
  6. Excellent position - lounge overlooked a field full of baby lambs which the grand kids adored. Nearly missed the turning to the cottage though on arrival as it looks just like someone’s drive, not a lane. The place was so full of light and wonderfully clean. We were lucky with the weather too. The boys went horse riding nearby and also fly fishing lessons, so kept them busy. Will definitely return again. April 2011.
  7. Had all the home comforts and plenty of room in both the dining room and the living room. Feb 2011.
  8. Good size kitchen/dining area and lounge (high ceilings). July 2010.
  9. Excellent location. Photos didn’t do the accommodation justice. May 2010.
  10. Location and facilities. May 2010.
  11. High quality fixtures and fittings. May 2010.
  12. Property was clean, beautifully furnished and well kitted-out. Thought the photos on the website didn’t quite do it justice. April 2010.
  13. A stunning cottage. Even better than the pictures. Cottage is nicely decorated and spacious inside and outside (particularly as we were a group of 6 adults). Had everything we needed. A short walk into Pooley Bridge village. Highly Recommend! March 2010.
  14. Plenty of room, spotless, big, comfortable - we were two boys and four adults and it was amazing. Feb 2010.
  15. Beautifully layed out property ideal for a group of friends or a family. Feb 2010.
  16. It was a very nice building set in nice peaceful suroundings. Oct 2009.
  17. Barton House was absolutely lovely. All crockery, cooking equipment etc.was of high quality and plentiful. The furnishing were comfortable and the whole house delightful. A lot of care had been taken to ensure that guests enjoyed their holiday. This was not just a holiday let, it was a welcoming home ensuring a lovely stay. We were quite sad to leave! May 2008.
  18. We were blown away when we arrived at Barton School House. It looked great on the web site but photographs can not do this lovely cottage justice. This is not just a holiday home, it is fit to live in and feels homely. It is fitted out with everything you would need in a home, let a lone a holiday home. The surrounding garden is very well kept and spacious. The location could not be more perfect, 5 minutes walk from the gorgeous village Pooley Bridge, 10 minutes drive to Penrith for all your shopping needs and many lovely walks for all types of walkers on your door step or around 10 to 20 minutes drive away. We will definitely return to this property again and have already recommended it to many friends and clients of ours. Oct 2008.
  19. It was a charming cottage, and we enjoyed sitting around the log fire in the evenings. Nov 2008.
