One of the finest holiday homes in the Lake District, this fantastic barn conversion is in a beautiful secluded location with stunning views and is just half a mile from the shores of Ullswater.

This spectacular four-bedroom barn conversion enjoys a secluded location and stunning views, just half a mile from the shores of Lake Ullswater. Accommodating up to eight guests in spacious surroundings, this is the perfect retreat for a special occasion or getaway with friends and family. It’s also an ideal choice for keen hikers and walkers.

From the moment you walk in, the sheer size of this former Lakeland barn will take your breath away. Tasteful decor and sumptuous furnishings combine with many traditional touches to create a really welcoming home. The large and attractive farmhouse-style kitchen will be an exciting sight for the budding chefs in the group, while the dining table is a relaxed spot for a group breakfast. More formal meals can be enjoyed in the central hall, with its pitched and beamed ceiling and a large table. In the elegant lounge, sit back and relax together while the open fire crackles away, while younger guests will love escaping to the additional snug room downstairs, with its comfortable sofas and large TV. Four inviting bedrooms are also to be found on the lower floor, each with their own style and restful design. Two are en-suite, while the two twin bedrooms share a bathroom. Allow the kids to explore the terraced patios and lawns which surround the property, while you sit back, take in the views and enjoy a drink at sunset.

Ullswater is the second largest lake in the Lake District and much of its shore and surrounding fells are accessible for visitors to explore. For a more challenging day, head to Grenridding (7 miles) which is a popular starting point for walkers and climbers going up Helvellyn, England’s third-highest mountain. Take a wander around the shops, museums and restaurants in popular Keswick, 15.5 miles away.

Both the property and location exceeded expectations. Everything was top quality and the little arrival goodies were appreciated. The property information guide left nothing to chance covering all bases. The owner took the time to communicate to see that everything was OK, we had arrived and settled in. We will be back.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
