    We genuinely enjoyed our time at Keld House Farm. It is a truely lovely building in a beautiful tranquil, rural location, ideally located for touring the Lake District and with lovely local walks and access to amenities in the short drive to Appleby. We had a lovely welcome from Jean and very much appreciated the tea, coffee, fresh milk, wine and doggy treat on arrival. We particularly enjoyed the very well equipped kitchen (missing only a couple of minor items that may just have been specific to our family needs). The kitchen was a light and inviting space that we thoroughly enjoyed spending time in for leisurely breakfasts and dinners. I would agree with other reviewers comments, however, that the beds are not the comfiest (being very firm), the noise from the upstairs bedroom is loud and really ‘spooked’ our dog who barked through the night every time somebody turned in bed or went to the loo. The sofas are old and tired and also not the comfiest. We weren’t lucky with the weather unfortunately and that may have contributed to the lounge feeling very dark at times despite the enormous window. Footwear is essential at all times due no rugs or carpets downstairs and the cold stone floors which get gritty very quickly. We felt there was rather a lot of dust and cobwebs in high or hidden areas, on the decorative features and wafting out from under the furniture in the downstairs bedroom. I felt the cottage would have represented a better balance of value for money if the disadvantages were better balanced with its ‘dog friendliness’. I too agree with some of the other comments that there are a few too many restrictions on dog behaviours that make for a stressful experience when staying with a dog. I feel if a place is truely dog friendly you should be able to stay there and live as you would at home with your dog. My dog loves to sit on my lap for a cuddle in the evening and has no clue what ‘not going upstairs’ or ‘staying off the furniture’ means. I generally didn’t mind the well worn upstairs carpet and living room sofas ( and felt they were typical of a holiday home that accepts dogs) but felt both should have been accessible to my dog. The outdoor space is not suitable for most dogs either as they can easily get over the low wall into the owners garden, and having to put your dog on a lead if out there is not relaxing for owner or dog and defeats the purpose of a holiday. The lane outside was a good place for convenient dog walking in the morning and night, but be aware that unless your dog is large or very well used to being around livestock, you will need to leash your dog there at all times. We have quite a big Cocker Spaniel (who is still very young and undergoing training) who showed a lot of interest in the animals and could have gotten under the farmers gates to the sheep and cows if not on a lead. On the whole, though, we had a nice time. If the dog rules were a little more relaxed and a couple of small adjustments made it would have been near perfect.

    What a little treasure Keld House Farm is a real home away from home....plenty of space within the property (for 4 adults and a dog). The bath in the upstairs bedroom is huge. The patio area is a little restricted space wise but absolutely fine for sitting doing nothing...just the way I like it. The sun room provides respite from the scorching heat we had last week. Plenty of parking for our two 4x4's. A huge thank you to Jean and Andrew the proprietors who have thought of every comfort required and the flower display on the approach to the property is gorgeous. When asked both Jean and Andrew provided plenty of information about the area ie best walks, best pubs ect (The Royal Oak in Appleby even has its own doggie menu...our pooch loved the chicken and steak especially!). We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return before the end of the year or certainly early next year.

    We were welcomed by the owners who were very friendly. Home made biscuits as well as tea, coffee and milk ready for us on arrival which was a nice touch. The owners also recommended a number of places to visit in the area and there were lots of leaflets of local attractions in the cottage. The cottage is a spacious barn conversion which gives you a country feel and its dog friendly. Kitchen is well equipped. Sun room is light and airy, living room very spacious with a wood burner. Both double bedrooms are spacious with en-suite and there is parking available outside. The only negative for this cottage for us was the back yard/sun terrace which is very small without access to the grass area so not ideal for dog owners and families with children although there is a country lane just outside for dog walking. A couple of areas, notably shelves, could do with dusting but bathrooms and kitchen were clean. Overall we had a good stay and would return back.

    the barn was perfect and was a lovely way to see in the new year ,the owners had done everything to make our stay enjoyable, the pictures are accurate, the barn is spacious and there is separate area with patio doors leading to the garden which was nice to sit with a morning coffee looking at the wonderful views .

    We had a great stay in this lovely barn conversion. It is very spacious and comfortable, ideal for dogs. The owners were very inviting and we can't fault it in any way,even laid on towels and poo bags for our 3 dogs. Brilliant will go again to further explore the beautiful area's only a short drive away.
