    About this property

    Backbarrow 1.5 miles. A magnificent detached stone cottage with a hot tub, situated within 400 acres on the owner’s working livestock farm, near the villages of Backbarrow, Newby Bridge and Cartmel. Located in spectacular countryside, Mungeon Barn is an excellent base for exploring the southern corner of the Lake District, with the ancient priory town of Cartmel just three miles away. This splendid cottage provides luxurious accommodation, perfect for a family get-together or for guests wishing to escape for a relaxing break. Built in an upside down style to take into account the stunning views, the open plan living area is on the first floor with a vaulted ceiling, oak beams and an exposed stone wall. The modern designer kitchen offers everything that you could wish for, whilst the dining table can comfortably sit everyone in the party. The other end of the living area is taken up with comfortable sofas, a woodburning stove that is guaranteed to keep you warm whatever the weather, a galleried window with exposed stone walling and steps down into the den. All of the bedrooms are located on the ground floor, with a beautiful master bedroom with an en-suite shower room, a step up to two further king-size double rooms, one with an external stable door leading to the patio and the other with a stable door leading to the front of the cottage, a twin room with stable door, a family bathroom and a shower room. Outside there is a large slate patio area, designed to maximise the beautiful views, with a built-in barbeque and a sumptuous hot tub where you can while away the evening with a glass of something refreshing as you watch the sun go down. Mungeon Barn is situated on a working farm where the resident Belted Galloway cattle blend easily into the landscape, whilst the only other distraction might be a hare, deer or pheasant strutting by. For the anglers in the party, there is a private lake stocked with Rainbow Trout, where if you are lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the otter and her young, depending on the time of the year. Just three miles away is the popular village of Cartmel with the smallest racecourse in the country and a superb mix of quirky shops, pubs, and of course the famous Michelin starred L’Enclume restaurant. This fabulous cottage is a gem. Note: This cottage can be booked with Refs - 918617, 929182, 931530, 931531, 981166, 981167

    Total occupancy 36.

    Ms Mcgee ‐ 1 Jul 2019
    "Loved stargazing at night in the hot tub."
    Ms Ellinson ‐ 1 Mar 2019
    " The building is beautiful and spacious. We made use of the BBQ pit outside but the hot tub was the highlight. Only minor point is that there is a large house just out of shot of most of the photos and there was the occasional car going over the cattle grid outside. But this is just a nitpick as everything else was so stunning we really didn't care. The owner was lovely and helpful, taking the time to show us how everything worked. "
    Mrs Payton ‐ 1 Mar 2019
    " Mungeon Barn is so beautiful and so are the surroundings. Kath & John were the perfect hosts, the beds were comfortable and the decor and finish of the furnishings were superb. We will definitely be recommending the Barn to our friends and hope to be back in the future soon. "
    Mrs Sagar ‐ 1 Nov 2018
    "Our host was really lovely, and the facilities were five star. Our only minor complaint was that the hot tub wasn’t warm enough to use on our first night!"
    Mr Duerden ‐ 1 Oct 2018
    "The most stocked kitchen in terms of pots/pans/glassware/utensils etc that we have ever had."
    Mr Casey ‐ 1 Apr 2018
    "Only downside I would say is the beds were quite firm and the pillows on the bed were very uncomfortable, far too large and firm. Other than that everything else was perfect."
    Mr Casey ‐ 1 Apr 2018
    "Great place to stay, absolutely beautiful surroundings, the owners were very friendly and extremely helpful."
    Mr Heaton ‐ 1 Feb 2018

    "Absolutely gorgeous cottage, all the mod cons including hot tub. Location was tranquil and peaceful close enough to lots of attractions including Windermere, Aquarium, Golf courses and Safari Zoo (very good for a British zoo). Kath the owner extremely helpful."
    Mrs Ann Paterson, Edinburgh,
    "The Barn itself was fantastic, 5 star accommodation, and the surroundings and owners made the whole package. The couple were very pleasant and informed us of the history of both business and farm. The bulls were our amusing neighbours for the week. Again, a fantastic holiday and the hot tub was a huge bonus for those lazy evenings spent in the barn."
    Mrs Jackie Cheetham, Sheffield, Derbyshire
    "An exceptional property with awesome views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Absolutely lovely."
    Dr Hyder
