Stylish barn conversion sleeping two, situated on a quiet lane in the Esthwaite Valley, close to both Lake Windermere and Coniston Water.
Packed with everything you might need for a romantic break, this 18th-century barn conversion is located on a hill overlooking the beautiful Esthwaite Valley. Surrounded by private gardens, it’s a super choice if you’re looking to bring your loyal canines with you, as two dogs are also welcome. With some spectacular walks on the doorstep and some of the most popular lakes nearby, this is a great base from which to explore the Lake District.
This stylish home has been designed with comfort and relaxation in mind. Entering via a shared hallway, you’ll find a spacious open-plan living area which is full of charm. If you’re in the mood for dining at home, then you’ll find all you need in the kitchen to rustle up something tasty. The cosy lounge area with its high vaulted ceiling and warming wood burner, is the perfect spot to unwind after a busy day of exploring. Staircases at each end of the room lead to two galleried areas – the first is above the lounge and features a seating area which overlooks the gardens. On the second, you’ll discover the king-size bedroom where a restful night’s sleep awaits. Enjoy a little al fresco dining in one of the seating areas to be found in the 5 acres of shared gardens, as the hounds roam freely.
The village of Hawkshead is a must-see when visiting the area, with its independent shops, pubs and restaurants. Stretch your legs on the circular route at the stunning Tarn Hows (4 miles) which can be enjoyed on foot or two wheels and takes in some majestic mountain views. The popular town of Ambleside is 4.5 miles away - from here, hop on one of the many pleasure cruises that cross Lake Windermere to enjoy the sights from a different perspective.
