  • A warm welcome, beautiful scenery and lovely cottage. We have very much enjoyed our relaxing stay here and will miss waking up to such stunning views. That you Margaret for being so kind and helpful when a visit to the local GP was needed. Smokey and Dandy will be missed. Hopefully, we will be back again.

  • Back again at our little bit of paradise, The Granary seems as far away as it is possible to get from day to day life. Have had glorious weather, not ofter do we return home from the Lakes with sun tans. Walked some of our favourites, and some new ones. As usual we don't want to go home.

  • Dear Margaret, What a lovely time we have had at The Granary. The boys have had so much freedom, paying in the fields, building dents and just 'being boys'. The Granary is a lovely home from home and such a beautiful setting. Thank you for the lovely thoughtful gift of Easter Egss for the boys and packet of biscuits for me. If you'll have us again, we'll be back.
