Lovingly refurbished barn in the village of Kings Meaburn, the perfect escape for a family or friends looking to explore the Lake District or the North Pennines, with walks direct from the doorstep.

Sitting in the village of Kings Meaburn, this lovingly-refurbished barn sleeps six people over three bedrooms and is the perfect retreat for families or small groups of friends who enjoy a little luxury when they travel. Spend your days hiking in the North Pennines or kayaking in the Lake District, and your evenings rubbing shoulders with the locals in the village pub or warming your toes by the barn’s glowing wood burner.

Step inside and you’ll find yourself on the first-floor of this converted barn, which consists of an impressive open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with feature beams and a Lakeland stone chimney breast. Rustle up some dinner for your loved ones in the stylish kitchen area and dine at the large farm-style table. Or head out onto the private patio, fire-up the charcoal BBQ and dine alfresco. After dinner, enjoy a glass of wine on the patio, or head indoors to cosy-up in front of the wood burner in the lounge. If you’re there in the springtime, you can enjoy the view of lambs playing in the fields opposite. At the end of the day, make your way down to the ground floor and you’ll find three lovely bedrooms.

Pack up a picnic and visit Penrith Castle Park (11.5 miles). Explore the castle, which dates back to 1399, take a stroll around the rose gardens and stop for a game of tennis or bowls. Or head to Pooley Bridge (12.5 miles) to take a boat trip on one of the famous Ullswater Steamers. In the evening, pack up a deck chair and blanket and set off to the Tan Hill Inn (26 miles). Enjoy some pub grub and then do some world-class stargazing in the carpark. This famous pub is an official Dark Sky Discovery Site.

Delightful cottage, well equipped and great layout. Location was convenient - a short (and scenic) drive to both Lakes and Dales, and easy access to Penrith for provisions. We hope to return!

Smoot Garth is a beautiful, stylish, comfortable and well equipped house. A very welcome place to return to after a day exploring. It's well located for visiting the North Pennines, Yorks Dales and the Lake District. However, it's worth noting that each of these locations is 30-45 mins away so you can spend a lot of time driving. The local area, whRead moreilst not having the draw of the national parks contains charming villages, great pubs and quiet lanes ideal for cycling. Hide

We had a lovely 3 night stay in this unique, very stylish, beamed barn conversion. It was comfortable and well equipped with a beautiful kitchen and open plan living space. We lit the log burner in the evening which made it super cosy whilst watching tv. The property is in a very quiet hamlet with a pub with outside seating. Lovely country/riversidRead moree walks from the barn. Pooley Bridge and Ullswater was about half an hour away. Food shopping in Penrith. Very helpful owner contact. Hide

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.
