Ford Barn Guest Reviews


Absolutely loved our stay at Ford Barn. So many fantastic little touches - the welcome hamper, seed for the many wild birds who visited, beautifully decorated and perfect location for exploring the Lakes. We'll definitely be back! Deserves the 5 Stars.

Hi, we had a great time at Ford Barn, very comfortable and homely. We would certainly book cottage again. Charlotte very helpful if needed.
Regards Ernie Stirzaker - June 2017

We had a fantastic stay at Ford Barn - there was everything that you could possibly need in a self catering cottage and more and the added bonus of 2 dog friendly pubs on the doorstep! The enclosed garden was great so we were able to sit outside without worrying about our border terrier escaping and walks around the race course were always fun - lots of other dogs to meet and greet.  Squeezing a car through the gates of the barn was a challenge but, with practice, it wasn't a problem!  Some lovely walks in the area and a train trip from Kent's Bank to Arnside was a lovely way to cross Morecambe Bay.

Thank you for a fantastic stay in Cartmel. What a treat!  The cottage and village were a delight. We had everything we could have needed in the cottage which is gorgeously decorated. The kids loved feeding the birds and the ducks - a lovely touch providing bird feed. The garden just added especial something for the kids.  

Fantastic!! What a charming house. You have thought of everything. Great holiday place. We will be back. The welcome pack was lovely too. xx

We've had a fantastic week here exploring the sights of the Lake District. Lovely cottage, had everything we needed. In Cartmel we enjoyed the beer garden next door, sticky toffee pudding and pork pies from the village shop! A boat trip on Windermere, Fell Foot Park and the gardens at Holker Hall were all great with our toddler. It's been a lovely break from life in London. We hope to come back! Thank you.

Fantastic stay, truly magnificent, lovely property, perfect location. Thanks for the extra touches, welcome pack, chocolates, bubbly & Christmas tree all appreciated. As for the parking we got our Range Rover in and out without any fuss at all. Cartmel is the perfect gastronomy experience, highly recommended!

What a lovely cottage! Having a great time, we have been to Cartmel many times, this has to be the best place we have stayed.
No marks on my Fiat driving out of the gate, ha ha!

Fantastic gastronomic weekend here in Cartmel c/o Simon Rogan. 1st night L'Enclume, 2nd night Rogan's Bistro, 3rd night his pub The Pig and Whistle ***
Property fabulous and well equipped - smoke alarm was more than sensitive even when cooker extractor and patio doors opened, but still functional. Car parking not the best with two large cars so we had to make use of the permit for the car park which was provided.
A really enjoyable long weekend and thank you for the welcome basket, a real treat! Would also recommend Ford Barn. John, Marlene, Kevin and Julie x
PS. Cartmel Coffee House is a must!!
The Brennands and The Chapmans - November 2014

We couldn't have asked for anything else with Ford Barn - exceptionally well thought out and equipped - in fact, with many unexpected luxuries - so, thank you! Home-made fudge and marmalade disappeared very quickly after arrival.
Cartmel exceeded our expectations - beautiful village in ideal surroundings. Many varied and interesting walks from the race course - saw a Barn Owl and a Red Squirrel on our wanderings. Regarding the restaurants and pubs...well it's a gastronomic dream, L'Enclume was excellent, but we also had two wonderful meals at Rogan & Company and in The Pig and Whistle too.
A truly wonderful week - many thanks.

We've had a lovely stay in Cartmel and found Ford Barn to be very compact and comfortable, thanks. The little girls especially enjoyed playing in the garden and made a big fuss of filling up the bird feeders. I liked the showers and robes- a nice touch - but I forgot to pack my slippers! The weather has been kind to us, especially for October.

We had the most relaxing week at Ford Barn. It truly felt like coming from home to a home. Every little detail thought through and lovely and clean throughout. We hope to come back again next year.
The Gelling Family, Oxfordshire - October 2014
What a lovely relaxing holiday! A beautifully furnished and equipped home, nestled in the perfect location! Even though we had on and off rain (apart from the 29th, my birthday, which was blue skies!) it didn't deter us walking and investigating.
A lovely break - we'll recommend Ford Barn!
The Brogan family - October 2014
We are now living in the Middle East and the cottage is the perfect retreat in the most perfect English village. We come to the lakes every year but our stay in Cartmel has been the best by far. This is due to the lovely cottage but also discovering Cartmel which is a real find. The food has been superb - The Pig & Whistle, Rogans and the fantastic service at The Kings Arms has made our stay fantastic- a foodie's delight. Thank you for the lovely welcome pack - also a special touch. We will remember our trip as being the best in the lakes - superb accommodation and food.  You will be remembered!

I had a lovely stay at Ford Barn, I hope to come back soon! Thank you!

I loved the countryside and long walks. I love the comfy bed and sweet shop and sticky toffee puddings, Thank you!
Alice aged 6

I really loved the comfy cosy bed. The story about the hamster made me laugh and I enjoyed feeding the birds and ducks. The countryside is beautiful and the sweet shop was.
Love Anna 6 and nearly 7 ( my birthday is on Christmas Day!)

We are very honoured to be your first guests. We enjoyed the cottage very much. Specials were: the delicious fudge (where can I order it?), suberb marmalade, the tranquility of the garden and ambience of the village, the birds in the garden especially the Robins. Very special was rescuing 5 ducklings from the garden, they all survived. Top marks for the cottage. Recommendations: Rogan & Company should deserve a Michelin star! Beauty Salon excellent massage.
Thank You - Gerritsen -The Netherlands
