Perfect in every way! Loved the marmalade thank you. South Tynedale railway & Lowther castle were fab trips for the kids. High Force in spate was truly Awesome!
David Bussey and family. October 2017
We had a great weekend. What with the Comic Fair in Kendal and a lovely walk over the Eden viaducts – it was a great place to stay. The barn was perfect. Thanks Katie.
The Young family. November 2017
Beautiful modern accommodation. Very well catered for children especially our 14 month old. Suited all our needs. Lovely days out, we can recommend Lowther Castle, Acorn Bank, Kennedy’s chocolate factory. A lovely Sunday lunch at The Black Swan in Ravenstonedale. Thank you Katie.
The Southwards and The Strachan family. October 2017
We had a wonderful time, great house, see you again soon.
A lovely and very comfortable home from home with so many little extras that made holidaying with children (almost) easy! An under rated area with lots to do including; Lowther Castle, Kennedy’s chocolate shop in Orton, Settle-Carlisle railway, Bowes museum and Forbidden Corner.

Wow! What can we say…. I arrived broken, sore aching and having run almost 90 miles in 3 days. Nelson Barn was like something from heaven. A proper cooked dinner, eaten around a table, hot bath, time and space to treat my blisters and then the first decent nights sleep for days. Nelson barn is beautiful and the attention to detail is gorgeous. We cannot thank you enough for your generosity and hospitality. I only wish we could enjoy it for longer. I imagine a winter snuggled in here would be cosy and wonderful. Thank you x

We have absolutely loved our stay at Nelson Barn. So comfortable and well equipped for everyone. Thank you. Lowther castle & garden – brilliant place for children. Fab cafe, beautiful gardens and a huge adventure play ground. Ullswater & Aira force – lovely drive over to see the waterfall and lake.
Beautiful, well appointed cottage with gorgeous fabrics and furniture. So much to do locally, our top tips – exploring water falls, the Rheged centre for rainy days, Lakeland climbing centre and for a nice stroll Smardale Gill viaduct – 3 hrs there and back and a picnic on the viaduct, hot chocolates at the Black Swan, Ravenstonedale afterwards.
A lovely house for a family holiday. Our 5 yr old loved all the books and toys you left out especially climbing on the top bunk! A social house with obvious thought for every guest that passes through the door. Thank you.
