The deer behind our lodge the kestrel in the afternoon the wonderful hot tub made our holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. They provided everything we needed for a lovely holiday.

The beds were extremely comfortable and everything else in the cottage was of very good quality. Having a hot tub made a huge difference for relaxing. We were in the hot tub every day and our grandson loved using it as well. Very secluded located.

The location is superb, the lodge is fantastic and all you could want has been provided - Sarah has thought of everything. Where do we start: the Hot Tub was great after a long days walking in the lakes (on constantly so you can get straight in anytime you want!); log burner gave a cozy feel in the evenings; accommodation is to a very high standard with comfy beds, loads of storage, fully kitted kitchen, great hot shower and plenty of seating to relax inside or outside on the expansive ...

.. The whole experience was special. The lodge is stunning, set in the most beautiful picket of the world. Clean, well decorated, great bedding and facilities... The single track road to get there is exciting, but go with the owners instructions or the road your sat nav takes you, will head you on a thrill seeking adventure...

Petite but perfectly formed for a short break with great facilities and lovely little touches by the hosts. Hot tub was wonderful even on cold wet evenings. Would really recommend Sarah & Eoin as hosts.

Where do I start!!!!! The barn and garden is done to a high standard! Just beautiful. The bathrooms are all tiled with great showers. Oak all the way through with under floor heating. Remote control velux windows. Kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed and more. I visited here with my parter & foster child, partners mum and dad and my brother and partner. And our four legged family members reggie, Oscar & milo. The garden is great for the dogs as they couldn’t get out. Table and chairs outside which was useful for our bbq in APRIL!!! Hot tub was lovely and checked & filled everyday. I called the owner (Sarah) to ask how to open the master bedroom window as it was electric she sent her husband within minutes of my call. The walks around this place were just great. The views were amazing. A fantastic week in a fantastic barn, worth every penny and would definitely recommend to anyone. We all can’t wait to come back.

We have a dog & so being able to walk up onto the hill from the side of the property was fantastic. We would definitely love to go on another occasion.

Thornyfield barn is a gorgeous property, we had everything we needed for our stay! We will definitely be going back at some point. Great communication with the owners prior to the stay too!
- Mr Hiley, March 2019
We had a great time. Space for us to get together but room to spend time on your own. Lots of bridle path walks. It is quite isolated but otherwise perfect.
- Mr Swinton, February 2019 Sykes
could not find anything to complain about . great location for walking . Ideal if you like peace and quite and beutifull views . beds very comfortable and plenty storage space, large rooms so you never felt like you were in each others way . they had thought of everything even plastic glasses and plates to use outside. very impressed

If you want to be away from the hustle and bustle then this is the place for you ,and of course you would want good facilities , I would rate them as excellent it takes not time at all to warm up with the central heating and a wood burner to add to the cosy they had just put a new hot tub in days before we arrived so felt quite spoilt the owners live next door who where helpful and friendly , the surrounding countryside is lovely and you can be in say grasmere in 20-25 mins quite central; we where out walking everyday and with two energetic dogs the surrounding lanes are quiet so ideal .this cottage left me with the wish to return which I can’t say about other places I have stayed certainly a good place to unwind

It had everything we needed and was in a perfect setting. Faultless. The pictures don’t do it justice!
Mr Ross, February 2019 Sykes
Lovely bottle of prosecco and pint of milk in the fridge most welcoming! We’ll be back.
Mrs Campbell, November 2018 Sykes
Wonderful location although single track approach road can be a little daunting at first! The turning at the church is 0.3 miles after the Sun Inn not 3 miles as instructions said. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, with fantastic autumnal weather.
Mrs Wood, October 2018 Sykes
The views from the cottage are outstanding. The cottage is very cosy with everything you need. Would definitely like to return for another holiday.

Never been to the Lake District before so what a wonderful place to visit. The cottage was really well presented and was very clean, the local community were very nice and gave us ideas on what to do and where to visit. Will be booking again hopefully with the same cottage for next year. If you go to Underbarrow please go the the Black Labrador pub and have a meal. 5*. Everything was A+++++++++++++++++++

clean and cozy could not fault it in amy way
- Mrs Foulger, October 2018
The condition of the accommodation was great right down to the fully enclosed garden. If you go to this cottage PLEASE take a few provisions with you as although it says it is in a village (which it is) there is nothing there other than a pub (the pub is excellent with fantastic food ). The area is well worth a visit and you could not do better than to stay at Brookfield Cottage, we could not find fault with anything there.
