Visitor comments

'Barn Close is a lovely place to stay. It has a tranquil feel to it and the house provides an environment where you can completely relax.  Anne gets the balance exactly right , between being helpful with suggestions of where to visit, walks to do, places to eat and also respecting guests privacy. Highly recommended.'

'I couldn’t have been made more welcome on my own for a few days at Barn Close. Anne made sure that I was comfortable and had everything I needed and there was a lovely feeling in their home.  Shame so many people miss this lovely corner of Cumbria, sticking to the main towns.'
