General Description

Little Barras is a charming and characterful cottage in the beautifully situated hamlet of Masongill in the Yorkshire Dales. Sleeping up to six people in three delightful bedrooms it's a tranquil haven for a family or small group to explore this lovely area. It boasts a lovely ground floor bedroom with its own sitting room for any members of your party with more limited mobility.

The owners have taken advantage of lockdown to improve the house still further. It has a new slate roof, and several rooms are freshly painted. New photos will be uploaded soon. 

On arrival at the rear of the property guests enter into a porch with plenty of space for your muddy walking boots. There's a sitting room to the right, which makes a lovely second living area for the children or teens to commandeer. There's a desk in here should you have brought work along with you on your trip, just don't let the lovely views put you off! It's a charming room with a sofa, two armchairs, an electric stove-style fire and a TV with DVD player and a stereo. Beyond this is the ground floor double bedroom, which is a gorgeous space with a Mediterranean feel about it due to its vibrant blue colour scheme and shuttered windows, there's a chest of drawers for storage and two windows looking out over a panorama of fields.

Moving back into the main house you'll find a downstairs WC and shower room with an electric shower in a corner enclosure as well as a spacious utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, upright freezer, sink, ceiling airer and plenty of space for your outdoor gear.

The lovely double-height kitchen has been well thought-through to make the most of light, space and the characterful details of the building. It has stylish hand-crafted blue units and is well equipped with an Elan range oven with five ceramic hobs, a microwave, dishwasher, fridge, coffee percolator and under-stairs breakfast table.

The main open-plan living and dining area is beyond here. This gorgeous room has exposed beams, parquet floors, deep set windows with stone sills. It's furnished with three beautiful deep sofas and a velvet armchair arranged around the fireplace and large Smart TV linked to ultra fast broadband. As with the rest of the house there is well-chosen art adorning the walls and a thoughtful colour scheme. The large dining table comfortably sits eight and makes a great place for enjoying long post-dinner conversations about your outdoor adventures. Please note, the wood burner in this room is for display only.

Back through the kitchen and upstairs to the lovely light landing now. The master bedroom is a lovely light dual aspect room with a purple colour scheme and a view to the gardens. It has a king-size wooden bedstead, built in wardrobes and a large chest of drawers. The next room has a fresh green colour scheme and two windows. There is a modern double bedstead, a wardrobe and drawers for storage and a comfy chair for looking over the front gardens. Lastly to the upstairs family bathroom which has a WC, vanity unit and traditional claw-foot bath with shower attachment.

Moving outside there's a lovely lawned area to the front of the house and an enclosed west facing garden to the rear, where there are mature shrubs and garden furniture on a gravelled terrace for enjoying the peace, quiet and birdsong, while on a clear day admiring the view to the Lakeland fells.
