Barn End is a renovated barn conversion sleeping 6 people. The cottage has been sympathetically modernised to include contemporary features such as chrome radiators, large patio doors and wood burner. It provides a lovely light and airy property with open plan beamed living space and a contemporary kitchen area. There are large french windows out to a patio seating area and a south east facing garden - ideal for breakfast on a sunny summer's morning or a glass of wine in the evening.
Barn End is situated on a quiet lane nearby to the village of Haile; holiday cottages in this area are about 15 minutes drive from the Ennerdale Valley (one of the most picturesque parts of the Lake District).
The tranquil, unspoiled valley of Ennerdale is an ideal starting point for hundreds of Lake District walks - from gentle lakeside strolls to energetic mountain hikes (the views of Ennerdale and Buttermere lakes from the high fells are a stunning reward); rock climbing (a good base from which to approach Pillar); mountain biking in Ennerdale forest and fishing in the lake (permit required); pony trekking and Go-karting (available nearby).
The nearest town is Egremont (2 miles) where there are shops and garage facilities. The historical west coast town of Whitehaven is 15 minutes away. It has a lovely marina and beautiful Georgian old town.
Wainwright's famous Coast to Coast walk passes close by and there are several lovely walks in the peaceful little known Calder Valley nearby.
