“We had trouble finding barn ( it was dark ) Email said it was the 2nd house on right but it was 3rd house , 2nd building .”
We were to pick up keys from marsden farm but in the dark it was so difficult to see farm names , I rang number and with a very bad line due to signal but with help we eventually managed to find property . Maybe a map would’ve helped !

“We had a fantastic stay, I can't praise the hosts or the accommodation highly enough.”
The house was spotlessly clean, cosy and comfortable. Ian and Anna had though of everything - Ian contacted us prior to arrival to say he'd noticed we had infants on the booking and fitted stair gates for us. There was a freshly baked cake and other goodies awaiting our arrival and a general feeling of being made very welcome indeed. An incredibly relaxing stay in an idyllic location.
“Fantastic cottage, perfect for large familys and groups, pleanty of room and well equiped.”
The owners and location were fantastic, will definatley be going back.
“The house ie,.”
...... Knotts View Barn was amazing and had great things to do inside for the kids. The location was lovely with farm animals to see when ever you went out side. Sleeping 11 with bathrooms to use on every level was fantastic.
“The accommodations had great facilities.”
The beds were extremely comfortable. Location was great for getting to places of interest. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. We had a great stay.
“Knott View Barn was perfect for a group holiday, there are lovely, large communal areas, the games room is great and the garden and patio are ideal.”
The house had everything we needed and the kitchen was very well stocked. The hill outside has one of the best views from the top I have ever seen. We will almost certainly be back.
“The children's play area outside was a great hit with our grandchildren and there were games rooms inside for all age groups.”
The beds were very comfortable and the large lounge meant we could all sit together in the evening. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped and everything was clean and ready to use. The location is good within easy reach of lots of exciting places to explore and the hill at the back provided lots of fun. We were all very sad to leave.
“The house is lovely, there was 10 of us (6 adults 4 children ages 3-12) there was loads of room, didn't feel cramped at all, very comfortable beds and furniture and beautiful bathrooms and lovely and warm The surrounding area is very beautiful, so peaceful, the children loved the outside play area We all had a wonderful time, very friendly owners, lovely cake, wine and Kendal mint cake left for us Would highly recommend.”
“Perfect base for a large family get together, fully stocked with anything you may require!”
The games room and play area were added bonuses for the kids . The photos really don’t do this barn justice. Fantastic value for money from Sykes too
“Fabulous house in a great location, loved it!”
“Knottend barn was excellent for a family gathering and we received a friendly welcome from the very pleasant owner Ian.”
The delicious Victoria sandwich cake, Kendal mint cake & bottle of wine as a welcome pack was much appreciated. The house was spacious, well equipped & very clean. The children loved the playground & indoor playroom. We had an enjoyable extended weekend in this beautifully situated property. The only thing that we would suggest as a possible improvement for the future would be , more comfortable beds. Otherwise everything was what we wanted. We would recommend this property to others.
“The photos just don't do the place justice - it was amazing!”
“The location is superb and the accommodation is spacious.”
The owner (Ian) lives immediately adjacent and is on hand to help with any problems. A welcome pack was provided for us on arrival and we immediately felt 'at home'. Our party (11) comfortably maximised the use of the 7 bedrooms and the several bath/shower rooms some of which were en-suite. A playroom and separate sitting room for the children enabled adults to relax in the large sitting room. The outside play and barbecue area was well used but the as the weather changed from the high temperatures earlier in the month to mild with occasional showers outside dining was risky! We had a good family holiday with our children and 6 grandchildren and have no regrets about our booking which we made well in advance. My recommendation would be to book early.
“The photos of this property really do not do it justice.”
It is amazing - private, secluded and so picturesque. Granted we did also get the most wonderful weather for the weekend but regardless of that the facilities we not only ideal and well kept but also so clean! We as a family of 4 couples and 4 children. As there are only 3 doubles one of the couples were in a twin which is not the end of the world but bear in mind this is a cottage and the single beds are small for the taller of us. The owner Ian is lovely and for the most part of it just left us two it though we did see him and his wife pottering around and it was good to know he was there if we needed him, The welcome pack was a lovely touch even including a homemade cake which went down a treat with both children and adults. All in all I could not rate our stay there high enough and we are already contemplating booking up for next year.
“The perfect house, location for the whole family, all 10 of us, aged 18months to 80 years.”
The owners were very friendly and helpful - great welcome pack appreciated! The outdoor and indoor play areas were fabulous , the icing on the cake. We all enjoyed celebrating granddads 80th birthday here. We will be back!

About the location
Kendal 9 miles.
An attractive market town, Kirkby Lonsdale is situated in the heart of the Lune Valley, midway between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The town was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and holds a 13th century Market Charter. Nowadays, Thursday is market day, a perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive independent shops in the town, or the many 17th and 18th century buildings which still stand. The town was also a finalist for the High Street of the Year Award in 2016. This part of the Lune Valley was a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, and was made famous by Ruskin – his "view" of the valley is still spectacular. The medieval Devil’s Bridge spans the river, and the quiet country lanes are ideal for exploring by car, bike, or even horse. There are three golf courses nearby, as well as tennis, riding, fishing and a variety of riverside and country walks, making the area an ideal location for a break, whatever time of year. When voting Kirkby Lonsdale as the ‘Best Place to Live in The North West’ in 2019, The Sunday Times commented it is “An unbeatable Lake District location, bags of community spirit and one of the cleanest high streets in the country’.
