General Description

1 The Barns has been refurbished and modernised whilst retaining some lovely original features. The entrance porch has a slate floor and a heated drying cabinet for outdoor clothes along with a torch, umbrella, wood basket and ample storage for footwear and coats. 

This leads through to the open plan living, dining and kitchen area. The fully fitted kitchen has a slate floor and walk in pantry, all modern appliances including a new cooker, freezer and dishwasher. There is also washing machine. Modern furnishings compliment the traditional farmhouse style of the kitchen.

The sitting room benefits from a solid wood floor and a traditional multi fuel burner whilst the leather sofas offer comfortable seating around the wall mounted TV. 1 The Barns is stocked with various maps, books and guides to the local area for walking, cycling and general sight seeing. Modern storage heaters compliment the multi fuel stove.

For extra flexibility, a high quality pull down king size bed has been installed in the sitting room and is concealed behind sliding doors along with a small wardrobe. The bed is fully made up and allows the property to sleep up to 6 people. 

Upstairs are two bedrooms, a king size and a twin bedroom. The king size bedroom has a pine wardrobe and views across open fields towards Blencathra. 

The twin bedroom does have a further pull out single bed (bedding provided, please request at the time of booking) as well as generous storage space, a TV and DVD player and games for all the family.

The family bathroom has a full-sized bath with an electric shower overhead, WC, washbasin and a heated towel rail.

Outside the garage contains a tumble dryer. There is storage space for bikes and any other outdoor equipment. The garden patio at the front of the property has a sunny aspect, looking towards Blencathra and comes complete with a barbecue, fire pit and garden furniture.
