The Byre is a romantic two-storey detached barn conversion at High Lowscales Farm, a traditional Cumbrian hill farm situated in the south-western Lakes, between the beautiful countryside of the Whicham and Duddon Valleys. The Farm is set in 17 acres and has spectacular views down to the Irish Sea and the Duddon Estuary. Public footpaths cross the farmland, and next door lies Millom Park, perfect for woodland walks. The driveway is also a bridleway, ideal for mountain biking in the Whicham Valley and up the 600m high Black Combe. The beaches at Haverigg and Silecroft and the Hodbarrow RSPB reserve are a 10-minute drive, whilst the market town of Broughton-in-Furness is 15 minutes away. Within a half hour drive you will also find Coniston Water, the Barrow-in-Furness Peninsula (pretty drives, South Lakes Wild Animal Park, Furness Abbey, The Dock Museum, Walney Island Nature Reserve, Piel Island, Furness Owls, Gleaston Watermill and the Cumbrian Coastal Way), Muncaster Castle and ’La’al Ratty’ miniature steam railway at Ravenglass, which all make for wonderful family days out. The Aquarium of the Lakes and steam boat cruises on Windermere are a 40-minute drive away. You can also enjoy your very own ’cupid’ spa hot tub, complete with massage jets and feature lighting. In order to make guests’ stays as relaxing as possible, shopping, ‘drop off suppers’ and massage and beauty treatments (at the cottage) can be pre-ordered (separate charges apply).

    Overall a lovely cottage, high end fixtures and fittings, let down with the basics, ( no mirror near a socket for drying hair, pot lids didnt fit, no toast rack,no space to put away our groceries) lovely hot tub, best bed I have ever slept on. At the time of our rental there were work going on right across from our cottage so spoiled our peace and tranquility.

    We had what can only be described as, ' A week of splendour.' The Lakes, The Views & The Hot Tub'. The location of the Byre was perfect as it far from other buildings and we had sheep as neighbours which meant that our stay was very peaceful. We stayed there for 7 days and were able to visit a few places in The Lakes, namely; Stickle Tarn, Keswick, The Lakes Distillery, Bassenthwaite Lake and Coniston Water. We still had ample time to have some quiet days in. I took my SLR onto the public footbath which is on the farm's acres of land and was amazed to see views which are literally 'in the back yard.' The facilities of The Byre are done to a high standard, cooking facilities, SMART TV which had, freeview as well as Netflix! As well as another TV upstairs along with a Bose speaker. The bathroom was also done to a high finish and must say was very spacious. The hot tub was amazing, and being far from other buildings meant that we had privacy. We have been to The Lakes before and where we stayed was nice, albeit far from civilization and meant a long drive just to replenish stock (drinks or the weekend paper). The Byre was perfect as there was a TESCO which was less than 10 mins drive as well as a BP Shell garage to check tyre pressure and refuel for the journey back. If you are the designated driver, this is good to know. Giles came to assist with a couple of things and it wasn't too much trouble for him and must say was very hospitable. The Byre is definitely a place where we shall be returning, be it for a weekend break or another long week away. DID I mention that we had glorious sunshine whilst we were there, we didn't book that however it was a welcomed bonus!

    A lovely wee place to stay if you like peace and quiet and remoteness.

    When we arrived the cottage was clean and well equipped. It is way more "out of the way" than we expected. We arrived on a Friday and all weekend the other house on the site had very loud parties into the early hours that we could hear, although this is obviously not the fault of the owners. However, from mon-fri there was building works going on at a new property right next to the byre from 8 am until 5!! Hardly the relaxing environment we had hoped for!we felt like we couldn't unwind in the hot tub with an audience. The local town is terrible! We went into millom on the Sunday to have a nice pub lunch....everything was closed! The places we did walk in to made us feel very unwelcome. Overall, a lovely property but the things mentioned above really let it down for us.

    Beautiful, secluded cottage. Immaculately clean and very well furnished and equipped. The hot tub was fantastic, we used it at least twice a day. The only thing that I needed but they didn't have was a mirror somewhere near a socket for drying my hair! Not a big deal though. Loved our stay at the Byre

    Absolutely loved our stay at The Byre. It was so quiet and relaxing away from other people, but also only 5 minutes drive to the shops. You do need to drive if you're going to stay here. We reached all the touristy bits within an hour or so. We got lost getting there, but were helped out with easy directions over the phone. It was lovely to find fresh bread, milk, butter, biscuits and tea and coffee when we arrived tired and hungry... even nicer finding a bottle of Asti kindly left for us :-) The hot tub was amazing and very private. Nice to have the BBQ going whilst relaxing. Also enjoyed the huge bath and rainforest shower. Everything seemed of high quality inside. My only criticism would be that there are no plug sockets near either of the two mirrors, so drying and straightening my hair was not the easiest thing in the small mirror I brought. Overall, a great stay and sad to leave.
