Spacious barn conversion in the peaceful Duddon Valley, with easy access to relaxing local walks as well as Lake District gems such as Coniston Water, Grizedale Forest and Windermere.

Stay in this warm and welcoming barn conversion situated at the mouth of the picturesque Duddon Valley. Sleeping up to six people in three well appointed bedrooms and boasting beautiful socialising spaces it makes a perfect base to explore this unspoiled area. Contemporary luxurious furnishings and high spec appliances are complimented by individual quirky pieces creating a lovely atmosphere for a family or small group stay.

Duddon Bridge sits between Lakeland's south western fells and the Irish Sea. Less visited than some of the more hectic areas of the Lake District, this area boasts some fabulous walking and cycling without the crowds. Why not head up to beautiful Seathwaite and enjoy a riverside walk? Alternatively take a dip in one of the swimming dubs. Stickle Pike makes a rewarding walk, you can even cheat a little and take the snaking narrow road over to Broughton Mills, then you can start the walk half way up! Just up the road is the charming village of Broughton-in-Furness. Set around a Georgian village square with an obelisk at its heart, it boasts award winning pubs with great locally sourced food and real ales, two excellent cafes, a great play park, and a much-loved bakery, grocers and butchers shop.

Beautiful Coniston also lies nearby where you can explore the area's rich culture, take on some mighty Lakeland peaks or just have fun on the water. If you're feeling energetic you can hire a rowing boat or kayak to explore the beaches around the picturesque 5-mile lake. For a more leisurely exploration of the water, why not catch the beautiful Steam Yacht Gondola during the summer months? You could make a day of it and head to Coniston's fascinating Ruskin Museum. There's something there for everyone as its exhibitions cover the worlds of literature, art and the area's water speed record heritage. However you choose to spend your stay, this cottage is a perfect base from which to start.

This cottage is a beautiful modern barn conversion by the lovely River Duddon. This semi-detached property is one of a small hamlet of houses near the charming village of Broughton-in-Furness. Sleeping up to six people in three lovely bedrooms, it has a warm and welcoming feeling about it from the moment you arrive. The owners have used a subtle palette of colour, comfortable furnishings, atmospheric artwork and quirky decorative touches to make a great base from which to explore the beautiful south of Lakeland and its peninsulas.

On arrival at the house guests enter into the wonderful double-height conservatory. This is a great addition to the social space of the house where you can enjoy far-reaching views over meadows to the Grizebeck fells in the distance while lounging on the comfortable rattan furniture. There's a shoe rack and coat hooks in here, ideal for returning from muddy walks. The conservatory leads on to the gorgeous light-filled kitchen. It's well equipped with double oven, five gas hobs, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. As well as this there's a high breakfast bar with cycle inspired barstools and a map for inspiring your outdoor adventures be they on foot or by pedal power!

The next room you come to is the delightful living and dining room. The living area has two deep comfy sofas along with a snuggle chair, all arranged around a wood burner and a curved screen Samsung Smart TV with DVD player. Perfect for cosy nights in. The other half of the room boasts a contemporary wooden dining set and a soft leather corner group sofa for extra seating, ideal for relaxing with a good book. In the rear hallway you’ll find a handy utility cupboard as well as a spacious downstairs WC.

Moving up the corner staircase now to the lovely bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-size wooden bed frame, a wardrobe and views out across the meadows. Next is the cosy double bedroom which has a low-level window and a wardrobe with sliding doors for storage.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too.
