Meadow Barn 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 beautiful South 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 snuggler chair, all arranged around a wood burning stove 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. Lastly the twin bedroom, this has a single wardrobe for storage and a quirky feel about it with stairs leading to a velux window looking towards the Duddon estuary. Pick a step to sit on and enjoy the view! The modern family bathroom has a large bath and a mixer shower in a separate enclosure, both ideal for soaking away tired, fell-walking muscles.
Outside there is a small lawn to the rear of the house and a larger fenced lawn to the front with dining space for making the most of sunny days and enjoying the feeling of this sweet little hamlet. In all, guests will find this a welcoming base for their Lake District adventures.
