Low Dykes Barn is definitely one for the wish list, its already on mine!

Low Dykes Barn near PenrithSleeping 6 in 3 fabulous double bedrooms, this is a stunning retreat for a group of friends to get together and put the world to rights.

Kitchen-diner at Low Dykes Barn near PenrithDownstairs you'll find the wonderful dining kitchen. Exposed brickwork and beams sit alongside sleek modern units in here. There's a handy downstairs toilet and the useful utility room contains all the necessities: the doggy wallpaper might inspire your pooch (1 dog is welcome) to claim this room as their own!

Living room at Low Dykes Barn near PenrithThe living room is richly decorated, just perfect for a relaxing evening. The wood burner-style gas stove provides the welcoming glow of the real thing but with the advantage of instant heat - you can never find the matches when you need them, anyway!

Double bedroom at Low Dykes Barn near PenrithThe bedrooms are all on the first floor. There are 2 gorgeous double rooms, whilst the stunning master has a king-size bed: you won't be disappointed, whichever room you choose! For those who fancy a bit of luxury, though, the master bedroom might be the one for you as it's got a lovely bright en suite shower room. The cool family bathroom has a shower over the bath, so everyone's happy!

Outside is no less lovely than inside! The extensive garden is enclosed - keep an eye on your dog, though, as it's not completely secure and the surrounding fields are often home to livestock. There's a stream at the bottom of the garden and the views over the surrounding fields and countryside are wonderfully calming, perfect for recharging those batteries.

Pizza oven at Low Dykes Barn near PenrithThe partially covered terrace next to the barn is crying out for an al fresco tipple. If outside cooking is more your thing then you'll be delighted to find the built-in pizza oven! I'm yet to perfect the recipe for ours so remember to let me know once you've cracked it!

Low Dykes Barn is located in the peaceful agricultural village of Clifton Dykes. A short drive from Penrith for all the amenities you could need, Clifton Dykes offers a peaceful escape from the crowds.

Be sure to remember Low Dykes Barn when you're ready for a real break!
