This beautifully converted barn offers cosy and welcoming accommodation for solo travellers or couples, in a serene Lake District setting with walking trails all around. It’s conveniently located only 7 miles from the M6, and with a lovely pub within 1 mile serving up local ales. On arrival, for an easy introduction to the area, head up Little Mell Fell (1 mile) or Gowbarrow Fell (2.5 miles) for a dog-friendly trip with lovely views.Originally part of a working farm, this property has been renovated to a high standard, and still features characterful exposed beams and lovely vaulted ceilings. Two steps lead up to the front door, which opens into an open-plan living area with a large sofa and a TV. The adjoining farmhouse kitchen has an apron sink, attractive grey units and a dining table with space for two. The comfortable super-king-size bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. You’ll have an outdoor space, too, which overlooks a meadow so you can enjoy a morning brew with a view.The vibrant village of Pooley Bridge (3 miles) features riverside coffee shops, pubs, restaurants, a bookshop, a post office and a bridge over the River Eamont. Directly from the property, you can walk to the stunning Aira Force waterfalls (4.5 miles), part of the Ullswater Way. England's third-highest peak, the majestic Helvellyn, is just 7 miles away. If you’re there at the right time, you’ll even be able to ski nearby – the local club (15 miles) offers nine runs around 60 days of skiing in a good year! Or if pampering is more your thing, head for a facial or massage at the four-star hotel 1.5 miles from the property.

I went away solo with my dog to do a little self healing. I absolutely loved every minute there and will definitely be returning. Everything is so very thoughtfully laid out and exceeded my expectations. Loved it!!

A lovely cottage in a perfect location, take a very short walk down the quiet lane to access the Ullswater Way Trail which takes you all the way up to Gowbarrow Fell (Wainwright) in less than 6km! Very clean, has everything we needed and good off road parking.
