Barrie Guest House
Reviewed 2 October 2016

Very handy for the station, quiet room, comfy bed and good facilities. Had to be away very early for the train, so owners kindly ensured provision of cereal, fresh milk, juice in my room (handy and very quiet fridge) , and plenty of toast from the toaster on the landing for me to start my day off well. Ideal! And good value too. Will certainly stay there the next time I'm in the area.

The Impressive building that is Barrie House just gets better and better. It combines the best of both period features and all the comfort of modern conveniences. The beds are spacious and very comfortable. The rooms are bright, airy and well furnished. This guest house has a lovely homely feel to it and this is mirrored in the warm and friendly welcome that you receive from Pam and Steve the owners of Barrie House.

I would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone looking for a relaxing comfortable base in Cumbria.

Many thanks for a wonderful stay.

Looking forward to returning very soon.

The location is excellent, just outside of the town centre. The owners, Pam & Steve, (really friendly) have done all the rooms in individual themes. All TV's are flat screen and the rooms have a modern air to them and they are spacious rooms. For the price and visiting the lake district this was great value for money!

Room Tip: Request an en-suite room.

Just spent three weeks at Barrie house whilst working at BAE. A great B&B that's very comfortable.A nice area to sit outside for a smoke or a drink that is covered in case it rains. Which unfortunately is quite regular in Barrow. Can't recommend this place high enough. The owners are really friendly. The breakfast arrangement is a 'Do it yourself' affair. There are cereals and orange juice, with milk in the fridge and crumpets. There's a toaster in the room and microwave ovens available outside the rooms. Ideally located to the shipyard or anywhere else in Barrow for that matter. Book it you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter, however, I had no problem at the front.

Recently spent two weeks in Barrie House whilst on business in the area. Not all rooms are ensuite but all are equipped a wash hand basin, fridge, kettle and cereals and breads for breakfast. Situated 5mins drive/ 25mins walk from the BAE dockyard makes it ideal for travelling contractors. Would happily recommend it and will be staying there on future trips to the town.
