Occupying a beautiful and secluded location around half a mile from Lake Ullswater, this stunning barn conversion is one of the finest holiday homes in the Lake District. A former Lakeland barn, the property has been sympathetically renovated to preserve its heritage and charm, while offering plenty of contemporary comforts. With its grand interiors and exquisite views, this spacious property creates a warm and welcoming space for family and friends to gather and create special memories.
The sheer size and superb attention to detail of this holiday home is impressive from the moment you step inside. The light and airy rooms have beamed ceilings, which are vaulted on the top floor, beautiful flagstone or oak flooring, lovely stone detailing, and solid wooden doors, complemented by contemporary furniture and select artworks befitting a grand country home. Spread over two storeys, it has a quirky, upside-down layout with the bedrooms on the lower floor and the main living space above. Gather in the formal lounge in front of a roaring open fire to relax after a day’s adventuring, or head down to the cosy snug on the lower ground floor, which offers a perfect space for children. The farmhouse-style kitchen features an AGA-style oven so you can whip up family favourites, before gathering in the formal dining room or dining alfresco in the large garden, admiring the beautiful views over the lake and valley. At the end of the day, the four spacious bedrooms offer a comfortable place to rest and recharge, ready for new adventures.
Often considered England’s most beautiful lake, Ullswater is the second biggest lake in the country, offering a wide range of activities and water sports. Take a boat trip on an Ullswater Steamer, head out to explore via kayak or canoe, or catch dinner on a fishing expedition. There’s plenty to do around the lake including walking, cycling, horse riding, and rock climbing, or you can explore the pretty village of Pooley Bridge (2.5 miles) or head to Howtown on the opposite bank (6.5 miles), home to one of the most beautiful walks in the Lake District.
