We undertook an extensive programme of converting our attached barn to create a home to an extremely high standard and wish to share all the benefits of this beautiful area and our holiday home has to offer

Brian & Diane Potter purchased this barn in 2010

Why Brian & Diane Potter chose England

Having lived in Cumbria all of our lives we feel the peaceful and tranquil location of our barn conversion is perfect for a relaxing break as well as having the Lakes and Mountains on our doorstep. Coomb View offers everything in a stunning location. Something we have never tired off or taken for granted !

The area and scenery is amazing and we feel very fortunate to be able to live and work here !! The surrounding area and its abundance of attractions and activities will appeal to families, couples, walkers and cyclists.

Beautiful House and Land

  • 5 of 5

Truly wonderful experience during our stay in Kendal. The apartment is clean and well equipped and beautifully designed. Our hosts were very helpful and accommodating. The listing is exactly as described with all the amenities one would want on a vacation stay. Highly recommend this rental and it is worth more than the price tag in my opinion.

An excellent location for a short break

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely fantastic house in a great location with very diligent owners. The house has been renovated to a very high standard and has everything you'd need for a break away. The use of a hotel gym and swimming pool is a real bonus as well. I'd agree with a previous review that being woken up at 8am by workmen wasn't ideal but understand there is other work going on around the house - perhaps the welcome pack should just mention this.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review and comments about Coomb View. We are so pleased you used the Hotel Gym and Leisure Club at the Riverside. Many of our guests do not use this facility as we are in the process of evaluating the value of this to our guests. Within the settlement here, there is a renovation of a derelict barn which will enhance the surrounding area once completed. We have assurances from the Contractors that any disruption to all of us as residents in the settlement will be kept to a minimum and certainly within normal working hours.

Exactly as advertised, clean, modern and a great base for exploring area.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were welcoming and resolved a couple of very minor issues straight away. Would highly recommend a stay here, ideally located for the Lakes.

Our only recommendation would be a microwave but there was a very good oven and hob so a very minor point

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. Coomb Views location is handy for both the South and the North Lakes and all of its attractions. A couple of our guests have suggested a microwave for which we are in a process of incorporating into the design of the contemporary kitchen. Hope to welcome you back to Coomb View in the future.

Excellent Accommodations Beautiful Setting

  • 4 of 5

Coomb View cottage surpassed our expectations. It was very convenient to services in Kendal. For the self catering experience, there is a a very modern supermarket and excellent shopping opportunities.

The cottage itself was very well-equipped and comfortably appointed. All the little bits and pieces that are required to start your stay were provided and the bottle of wine as a welcome was much appreciated

Great care was taken to provide a luxurious and well-designed home away from home.

The surrounding landscape and the sheep grazing on the hill outside the window while we were eating supper were particularly charming.

The location is perfect for day trips up to the lakes and our six night stay gave us ample time to really enjoy this part of the country.

The idea of being in a restored stone barn was the only part I felt a little deceptive. The place is so modern and luxurious that it felt like walking out of the John Constable painting it into an IKEA store.

This is simply a matter of personal taste and anyone staying here will find the accommodations first-rate.

Brian a little attention is needed for the faucet in the kitchen. It was very difficult to manage the water pressure control knob.

Everything else was near perfection ,and I highly recommend a stay at Coomb View.

Owner's Response: Coomb View has been converted from a disused stone barn using traditional methods and more importantly we have preserved the external appearance to match the rural and tranquil location and surroundings. The current trend in the UK for Home Design is contemporary and open plan living which is why we have designed the interior in this manner and have chosen key pieces from various leading UK home design stores such as Debenhams, Marks and Spencers, Next and Ikea to suit this style. Thank you for the heads up on the Faucet in the Kitchen (Kitchen Tap). The tap itself seems to be more of a design statement rather than the functionality of it. The stiffness of the controls have now been attended to. The location is perfect for both the North and South Lakes and the list of attractions nearby are endless. Kendal is only a stone throw away which provides all the amenities of supermarkets, banks, beauty salons, hairdressers and a mixture of shopping experiences. It was so lovely to have met you and hope you will return to the UK in the future.

We arrived approx 6.30pm on the 13th. It was lovely to enter a very well equipped property.

  • 5 of 5

It is lovely, very tastefully decorated. It is very clean. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. A microwave would have been helpful but not essential. Brian and Diane were very helpful without being intrusive. It is nice to have them living on site. It is very helpful that there is a good supply of literature in the house of activities, places of interest etc to visit whilst being in the Lake District

Owner's Response: Lovely to hear from you and thank you for your review. We have been thinking of providing a microwave for our guests so your comment is much appreciated. Just need to put some thought to its position as we do not want the spoil the contemporary look to the kitchen. A lot of our guests comment it is their first visit to the area so to be on site and be able to recommend places to visit is our pleasure. We also felt it was essential to have as much literature as possible in Coomb View so our guests can plan their days in advance. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back to Coomb View in the future.

The cottage is beautifully designed and is fully equipped. The location and views are idyllic .

  • 5 of 5

Our week was totally relaxing and the location allowed us to visit many beautiful areas of the Lake District, and in particular we loved Elterwater. The house is very stylish and comfortable, and the spa leisure centre passes were utilised on several occasions. The views from the cottage are stunning and the garden is completely calming. The welcome wine and essentials are a really lovely touch and very much appreciated. The open plan style of the house adds to the relaxing experience. It is very clean upon arrival and very organised. Considering the owners live there also and there is a second rental, there is such a feeling of privacy and separation. We loved staying there and will be recommending it without hesitation.

Thank you for a really fabulous holiday.

There are so many beautiful places to explore within the Lake District, the list is endless. Looking forward to welcoming you back to our little piece of heaven. Wishing you all the best.
