Great cottage. Spacious. Old rustic charm with all modern amenities. Good location with a very friendly pub next door and a hotel a short walk away. The cottage is much better than the pictures shown on website. Would strongly recommend.
A great place for a family gathering
The property is large and meandering, with many rooms and a very convivial gathering place around the kitchen table. It was ideal for our needs which was to bring together family members from different parts of the world.
When we arrived the fridge freezer had broken down. We made a phone call to the property manager and a replacement was organised immediately and delivered first thing the following morning (plus a bottle of champagne). Excellent service.
Lovely property with plenty of space and very well equipped.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Access to everything was very handy. Only criticism was the size of the en suite. Bedroom spacious en suite not! But saying that we all managed and there is a good sized bathroom on the ground floor with a very nice roll top bath. Also those who are taller than about 5 foot 8 inches need to mind their heads as a few of the beams are low and we did have a few banged heads but then again it is a barn conversion and it is nice to have the original features. All in all a very nice property and we had a very nice relaxing holiday and the ambience of the property did add to this. Would have no hesitation recommending.
The location is excellent. Nice and quick off motorway for arrival and within 30mins of great walking.
Great family get together
Dacre Garth is everything we expected and more. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. The huge family kitchen is very well appointed, has everything we needed to prepare our Easter feasts and there was room for all of us (8) to sit and chat while we were cooking. The main lounge is also very comfortable with plenty of space. The weather was hot and sunny so we didn't need to use the log fire but if we return in the autumn/ winter that would be a bonus. We chose to have our meals in the upstairs dining area overlooking the lounge and have fabulous memories of the family celebrating together.
All 4 bedrooms are very comfortable and perfectly private.
The pub next door is an added bonus, very friendly and not at all intrusive.
I'm sure we will want to return to Dacre Garth before too long.
Lovely House, Lovely Location

Dacre Garth lies in the heart of Cumbria within the small friendly village of Stainton. The Village boasts excellent food at the King’s Arms Public house and the Brantwood Hotel.
Within a short walk is the renowned Greystone House Farm, stocking local and organic produce ranging from pasta and preserves, to fresh bread, milk, vegetables and its own butchery. The tea-rooms above the farm-shop are also highly recommended for lunch or an afternoon snack.
The village also has a children’s play park and recreation area just 5 minutes’ stroll from the Barn
