Barrony Cottage is one of our NEW COTTAGES!
Barrony Cottage is a charming, bright 18th century converted stable located within the Lake District National Park in the peaceful village of Uldale. Full of original character features and with all the modern comforts you'd hope for, you really do have the best of both worlds here. On the ground floor you'll find a lovely living room with a cosy wood burner that's perfect for relaxing evenings, and a spacious well equipped kitchen-diner. Up the stairs on the first floor are the 2 characterful bedrooms, a lovely king and a charming twin, along with the family shower room. Outside there is a seating area with bbq, parking for 1 car, as well as a shed for storing bikes should you prefer to get out and about on 2 wheels, the National Cycle Route 10 is close by.
Uldale is a small village, located in the area known as the Back O' Skiddaw. As well as the famous ‘Mae’s Tearoom’, the Snooty Fox pub and a village tennis court, there are a wide variety of walks on offer nearby. From riverside rambles and peaceful woodland walks to high fells. Serious fell walkers can tackle Skiddaw itself, England's fourth highest mountain. Or why not venture up Binsey, Little Cockup or Great Calva for a fantastic walk rewarded by stunning views? If cycling is more your thing, then there are plenty quieter winding country roads to explore as well as Cycle Route 10.
Though enjoying a peaceful rural setting Bassenthwaite Lake is only 3 miles and Keswick is a scenic 11 mile drive away. Known as the adventure capital of the North Lakes, sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies. Have a go at canoeing, raft building, gyhll scrambling - or try the Via Ferrata at Honister Slate Mine, for the very brave only! Enjoy a lakeside picnic on the shores of Derwentwater or take a ride on the ever popular launch to enjoy the water from a different persepctive. Head to Cockermouth, a charming Georgian market town. Indulge in some retail therapy in the great choice of quirky independent shops or visit Wordsworth House, the birth place poet William Wordsworth, for a spot of culture.
