About this property

A beautifully converted barn holiday home, in the heart of the Lake District, suitable for a couple seeking tranquillity or outdoor activities and the chance to immerse themselves in nature.

This has a rustic stone feature wall, bath with shower above, WC and hand basin plus an electric towel rail. Take a few steps up from the hall to discover the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with its vaulted ceiling, skylight windows, gorgeous old A frame beams and natural stonework. Chose a DVD, then relax on the sofa in here to watch it or select some music for the CD player to listen to as you prepare a delicious dinner for two. Find the kitchen is equipped with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge with freezer section, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Whip up a meal then dine together at the table.
