“Fantastic”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Returned from Hill Side Barn this weekend from out first family holiday. What an amazing place to stay.

Situated in a great (and quiet) location in the hills above Ulverston the barn offers a great base to explore The Lakes and the surrounding area. The barn itself is very comfortable and kitted out with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. Which brings me on to the hot tub - a perfect way to relax and unwind following a full day of doing touristy things.

Very sad to be home!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 18 February 2015 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed in 2 of the cottages and thought it only fair to put a review on here, these are by far the best cottages we have ever stayed in , the decor and furnishings are amazing and so homely and comfortable that you won't want to leave the cottage, we had a Halloween party at the cottage whilst we were there and took full use of the hot tub after our long walks and bike ride. A lot of thought has been put in to the cottages with things like a slow cooker being put in the kitchen which was ideal for us, the bedrooms were comfy and the shower rooms fantastic.. In Ulverston there is some great pubs to get a meal and there's a lovely walk up to the lighthouse and if you get chance to go in the views from the top of the lighthouse are spectacular. All in all these are the best cottages we have ever stayed in since we started having the October half term week away some 5 years ago and we would have no hesitation in recommending them and also giving them a 10/10 . Hoping to get the big cottage this October so we can all holiday together and have a family party in that amazing kitchen.. Thank you for the great holiday. ... From the Yates Family,

Thank you for your review. Glad to hear that you had a great time at Hill Side Barn. It is nice to read that the property was homely, it is the perfect characteristic for a family October half term getaway. We hope that the Halloween party was as good, having a hot tub is definitely a key ingredient for a good party. We can't wait for you to book the larger property so that you can take advantage of the kitchen and have another 10/10 experience!

“Comfy, cosy, clean a fabulous place to relax”
Reviewed 14 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Lovely holiday let. Everything was very clean. Lovely and warm and comfortable. The hot tub was the icing on the cake. The wine, eggs and milk were a thoughtful touch. We would not hesitate to stay here again. If there was one thing we could have had it would have been a better reading light in the lounge but to be honest, that was the only thing we could find fault with and it certainly didn't mar our time away.

Just got back from a week long relaxing break at the hill side barn, had the most amazing time, the barn was warm and welcoming!! Hot tub was lovely, spent most evenings in it with a glass of bubbly stuff looking at the stars! Ulverston is a lovely town with lots of shops to get the essentials. We visited the temple and the zoo whilst staying here as they were both a short drive away and would recommend these attractions to everyone. Would certainly go back and will be recommending it to friends.
