Low Dykes Barn is a stylish and comfortable barn conversion situated in the hamlet of Clifton Dykes, bordering the Lake District National Park and North Pennines Area of Natural Beauty.
The entrance hall is well lit by the large windows, which flood the barn in sunlight, both upstairs and down. The kitchen is of a good size and contains a large electric oven, five-ring gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, large fridge, large freezer and an oak dining table to seat six guests. The living room is of a similar size with a four-seater sofa and two matching arm chairs, a gas-effect wood burning stove seated on a large slab of local sandstone, as well as a smart TV (so don't forget to bring your Netflix or Prime logins!). A stylish utility room houses a washing machine and tumble dryer and is perfect for storing muddy boots, wet coats and even bikes. There is a ground floor WC on this floor too.
Upstairs, on the first floor are the three bedrooms. The master bedroom features a king-size bed, huge wardrobe and en suite bathroom containing a walk-in shower, WC and hand basin. There are two double bedrooms with ample storage. The family bathroom has an over-bath drench shower with a second handheld shower head, a WC and hand basin. All upstairs rooms have a view over the garden towards the fields beyond and a fabulous Cumbrian skyscape.
The garden can be accessed from both the living room and the kitchen, with the latter leading onto a partially-covered terrace. The large garden has been cleverly landscaped, with the main features being a large stone pizza oven and the tranquil Light Water Beck running along the bottom of the garden. This is a beautiful feature but young children should not be left unattended in the garden. While the garden is fully enclosed, a determined dog would have no problem in squeezing through holes in the fences, so please also bear this in mind. This garden is well-set up for social gatherings, but guests can get away from it all with just a few steps down to the stream at the bottom of the garden.
There's certainly plenty to do in the area, but the question is whether you really want to leave the comfort and tranquility of Low Dykes Barn...?
