We stay in that same cottage at the sam time every year and it's great the only this this year the downstairs was very cold and the bed s felt damp when we got in to them there was a funny smell in the main bed room I alway book this cottage and am very happy with it but was very shocked when I put down my deposit for next year and the price had shot up by a extra £100 or more for 3 nights I think is very expensive but outher than that all was fine
“Perfect getaway spot”
This property was recommended by Lake Cottage Holidays as our first choice was unavailable. Thank goodness! Absolutely beautiful cottage, felt totally at home staying there. Also dog friendly and bowls and poop bags were provided by the owners! Nice little touches such as the local wine for us to sample, rain jackets in the hallway, just in case, (didn't need them). The village was lovely and quiet and plenty of local footpaths to take Bailey for a walk, but the village was also just a couple of miles from the A66, so we could go off for days out in the Lake District and Eden Valley. Would stay again.
We needed a place to gather our rather dispersed family for Christmas. Stevens Barn was not like a rental - it was like walking into a welcoming home. The comfort, the facilities, the hi-fi, the wifi, the books, the games, the feel-good factor were above all expectations. Beautifully furnished, very comfortable throughout. This made our Christmas feel right despite being away from our homes. Brilliant!
“Great accomodation, Spacious, Cosy and Well Equipped”
Excellent renovated Barn on 3 levels, really comfortable dining and living areas. 2 very nice bedrooms with plenty of room and storage for clothes etc. The whole Barn conversion was modern and well equipped, an abundance of audio and Visual electrics in all rooms (With free Wifi). Even a Laptop and Electric Bass guitar for guests to use!! Great location in a lovely quiet village yet quick and easy access to both Eden Valley and Lake District locations.
The cottage was beautifully furnished and had everything you could have wished for. The bottle of local Cumbrian wine on arrival was a nice touch. The village pub served lovely food and Long Marton is within easy reach of a variety of Lake Disctrict locations
We booked this property over the Internet. When we arrived at Stevens Barn we were more than pleased, an excellent cottage or we should say converted barn. Very well equipped and in excellent condition. Very quiet little village with a very friendly pub to eat in just around the corner. We also found a few other excellent places to eat locally all which accepted us and our dog with open arms. Would definately visit here again
“Awesome place to stay.”
I was a bit apprehensive when I made this booking at Stevens barn as there were no prior reviews. However, this is one of the best barn conversions I have ever been at and it is a 5 star self catering cottage. The only let down is its location and is a bit far from main lakes. It takes a good one hour to reach any of the popular lakes. If someone is planning to stay away from the busy tourists and looking for a place to relax and venture out for walks nearby then this is place to be.
We enjoyed 7 nights in a superbly equipped cottage in the Eden Valley. The owners generously share all their own equipment and home comforts with their paying guests, including great sound systems in all rooms. The village is very quiet but well placed for trips into the Lakes or Pennines and has great nearby walks. Will definitely return.

This refurbished contemporary barn conversion lies in the peaceful Cumbrian village of Long Marton. Stevens Barn is a two bedroom property that adopts an upside-down approach across the layout of its three floors, enabling its living space to offer views of the surrounding fells. The ground floor plays host to the property's two bedrooms.
The master houses a king-size bed and you can have a lie-in or early night watching a DVD on your room's TV.
The master also has its own en-suite shower room, while there is also a family bathroom on this level for the use of the other bedroom, itself housing a zip/link super king-size bed and an iPod dock.
On the first floor you'll find the open-plan kitchen and dining space, with the second floor hosting the sitting area, with its character beams offering a proper cottage feel. A small, walled courtyard garden to the rear offers privacy for a peaceful retreat at the end of your day. Long Marton is a small village, but you can still buy some freshly baked bread from the local baker or sample the delights of the village pub. The village location is ideal as it is just a few miles west of the Northern Pennines, so exploring the beauty from the Pennine Way is a fine way to spend your time.
To the west, the Lake District, and less than half an hour's drive will find you in Pooley Bridge, from where you can enjoy all the activities around Ullswater, or perhaps a gentle lake trip. Located in the picturesque area of the Eden Valley, Stevens Barn offers the perfect spot for two couples or a small family to enjoy an idyllic countryside break in Cumbria.
Across three floors. Two ground floor bedrooms: 2 x double, one with king-size bed, en-suite shower, basin and WC, 1 x zip/link defaulting to super-king, can be set to twin on request. Ground floor bathroom with shower over, basin and WC. First floor kitchen with additional dining area. Second floor sitting room.

About the location
Penrith 14 miles.
The historic town of Appleby-in-Westmorland lies in a loop of the River Eden and is overlooked by the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the Lake District Fells showing on the western horizon. Set at the heart of the lush Eden Valley and steeped in history, this is one of the loveliest towns in the north of England and was originally the county town of Westmorland. Appleby is nestled between the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales, so guests can enjoy the contrasting scenery of these two National Parks, plus numerous walking and cycling opportunities as well as the fantastic leisure centre in the town. Appleby has a wonderful selection of quality independent shops, cafes and delicatessens selling locally produced food and crafts. The picturesque street of Boroughgate, with some interesting old buildings, is at the heart of the town and links the well-preserved Norman Castle with the fine medieval Church of St. Lawrence. Appleby is a major stop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain, and still today many of the old steam trains wend their way along this line and over the historic and awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. Visit Appleby in June and experience the colourful spectacle of the three hundred-year old Horse Fair. With the delightful Ullswater and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.
