The Old Post Office review

Excellent location for hiking in dales and lakes. Lovely quite village with beautiful views and walks. The cottage was perfect for our family of 3 and we had a fantastic week in one of the best spots in England before returning to Australia.

Second visit
Review submitted 09.06.22

We booked this cottage for the second year in a row and weren’t disappointed! The cottage is beautifully appointed and well cared for. Incredibly well stocked kitchen and beautiful bed linen, towels etc. Nothing’s been overlooked by the owners. We had one slight query about something and the owners responded immediately. We highly recommend The Old Post Office as a perfect holiday home and base for visiting the surrounding countryside.

This was our third consecutive year booking with Mill House Cottages and this was quite possibly the best cottage yet! Just wow! A perfect house for us (a family of four) and we lived our dream lifestyle here for the week. Upon entering the cottage, we were bowled over by the amount of living space and the welcoming feel. The photographs on the website don't do it justice! Everything was spotlessly clean - as it should be. No expense has been spared with the beautiful decor, furnishings and high quality amenities. All the little details make such a difference too - from the gorgeous wall art and plush cushions /throws - to the waterfall taps and cute window shutters! The owners obviously have an eye for style and design. We loved the amazing shower in the main bathroom, the super comfy beds and the chef's dream kitchen. We also loved the stunning mediterranean courtyard. We were lucky to have plenty of fine dry weather which enabled us to spend some evenings sitting out here playing card games with a glass of fizz, and enjoying the ambience. Barbon is such a pretty and quiet villlage. The Barbon Inn is a lovely pub (we had a drink here) and the Churchmouse Deli is great for buying local produce or enjoying a coffee. We also made friends with the local horse and foal! The handsome market town of Kirkby Lonsdale is only 5 minutes drive and has a wonderful array of independent shops, cafes and top eateries. A must-do is to walk along the river and over Devil's Bridge, and also walk through the back of the churchyard to see Ruskin's View . The Milking Parlour serves up the most amazing homemade ice cream I've ever tasted and the queues here speak for themselves. We had a lovely meal out one evening at The Highwayman - highly recommended. There is fabulous walking and breathtaking scenery whichever way you turn. We drove into the Lake District a few times and bagged some more fells and went back to some of our favourite places - Windemere, Hill Top (Beatrix Potter's Farmhouse), Ambleside, Keswick and Grasmere. A highlight was the walk up to Easedale Tarn from Grasmere! There are also lots of lovely places to visit in the Yorkshire Dales too, including Ribblehead Viaduct, Hawes, and the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail. We also walked to the top of Pen Y Ghent! You can find lots of waterfall walks if you google the area! I really cannot think of anything negative....just the fact that we had to leave! I have no doubt that we will return. Thank you Rob and Elaine for sharing your beautiful home. Keep up the good work. We are very happy and satisfied guests. We will definitely be recommending this wonderful cottage to family and friends. ps. Maybe the addition of a hot tub would be the icing on the cake?! Julie, Martyn, Elena and Olivia Pretty
