    About this property

    Broughton-in-Furness 5 miles and Millom 5 miles. This picturesque, traditional Lake District barn is situated in a timeless, peaceful location in the gardens of Whicham mill at the foot of Black Combe, with White Combe beyond in the South West corner of the Lake District National Park. Wainwright mentions Whicham Mill in his description of three walks on Black Combe which can all be started directly from the door of Swallow Barn. The Barn offers a stylish and cosy, brand new conversion. The ground floor has a well-equipped kitchen boasting a slate floor with underfloor heating. A small step up leads to the sitting room, complete with a wood burning stove. Upstairs there is a master bedroom with a king-size bed, views of the garden and charming original features. The bright second bedroom has twin beds which can be zip-linked. The family bathroom includes a bath with both a shower wand and shower over, basin and WC. Outside there is a private stone walled patio to enjoy the afternoon sun and a beautiful lawned garden with the beck tumbling by, providing an enchanting place to enjoy the scenery.
    The famous Cumbrian Heavy Horses Stable and Riding Centre is just along the valley offering unforgettable beach and fell rides. There are a range of walks and attractions to take advantage of, including breathtaking views of the Irish Sea from Black Combe, the stunning wooded trails or scenic boat trips of Lake Windermere, Scafell Pike, the homes of Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter or the historic and haunted Muncaster Castle. Perfectly located to take in the famous landmarks and historical attractions of the Lake District, this property provides all the home comforts you will need, as well as a place to escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy the natural beauty of the region.

    Broughton-in-Furness is situated in the south western corner of the Lake District and is just six miles from Coniston Water. The village provides an ideal base for a walking or climbing holiday, with ample opportunity to explore the rugged beauty of the Duddon Valley and the Lake District fells.

    "The cottage was in a lovely spot, a stream nearby, a friendly dog, a mountain walk from the cottage."
    Mrs Leon ‐ 1 Mar 2018
    "It may not be in the centre of the lake district, but we liked that. It was peaceful and felt like we were part of the 'real' Lakes because it was not too close to the touristy centre of the Lake District, but everything including Haverigg beach was just a short drive away. The best lake, Coniston, is about twenty mins drive away. The Punchbowl Inn is within walking distance serving really good pub grub. The owner is very approachable, accommodating and helpful. Has a great knowledge of local walks, sending us on an amazing walk that started on a pathway that used to be a victorian railway track, led to another great pub - The Blacksmiths Arms and though rolling fields full of new born lambs. All in all a wonderful easter break."

    "Frat spot for walks in magnificent surroundings, literally from your doorstep. The cottage has a boutique hotel style and Maggie, the proprietor, is very helpful and discreet. We have been able to drive around the lakes from this location. We had seven wonderful days there. Highly recommended. We will be going back."

    "We had a lovely week at Swallow Barn with our two children aged 3 and 7. The cottage is charming, cosy and comfortable, and there is no shortage of walks and family activities in the area. We would definitely considering coming back in the future."

    "Sympathetically renovated with just the right mix of old and modern decor and furniture. Clean,well equipped and a perfect spot for a peaceful relaxing break. The garden was great to sit and relax with a book and a glass of wine. Maggie was a great host who was there if we needed her for anything but in no way intrusive. Ideal spot for visiting some beautiful places nearby. Loved Ambleside and Ulverston was great on market day. We would definitely recommend this little gem."
