Lovely home in a gorgeous location
After an initial hiccup where the property was not ckean on arrival (which was rectified) we had a lovely stay in a pleasant and well equipped cottage in a beautiful but handy location.
Stayed 4 nights in Jul 2022

4/5 Good

Beautiful place
A beautiful cottage in a lovely location. Very clean and comfortable, the only issue was the radiator in the double bedroom didn't work (thermostat control said low battery and wouldn't turn on) and it was a cold room, otherwise a perfect place and excellent access to the surrounding villages.

5/5 Excellent

Can't wait to go back in January
Yet again a brilliant stay at the Granary. I'm running out of superlatives to use to describe how good the cottage is. This is the 4th or 5th time we've stayed there and we're back again in January. It's location is perfect for us as we love the Langdale Valley area. January can't come soon enough.

5/5 Excellent

Another great stay
This was our fourth time at the Granary and it never disappoints. Spotlessly clean and it appeared, newly decorated. We've found the perfect place for us to stay so we don't even look anywhere else. Roll on June for our next visit.
