Nestled in the heart of the Lake District, The Byre - a renovated 'cowshed' of the farmhouse - offers an escape from the pressures of modern life, and a chance to immerse yourself in nature. This refurbished modern barn conversion - which sleeps up to four people - is cradled in amongst the fells of Patterdale, offering fantastic views of the iconic UNESCO World Heritage Site landscape. The Byre provides reverse accommodation and overlooks the working farm of Deepdale Hall, which was built around 1670, and has been owned and run by successive generations of the Brown family who have been making visitors welcome since 1954.

Deepdale Hall is a Grade II listed 17th century farmhouse situated on a working Lakeland hill farm in the scenic valley of Deepdale, close to Patterdale between Ullswater and Brotherswater in one of the most beautiful parts of the Lake District National Park. Indian Runner Ducks run free and a peacock resides on the farm. The Byre's rural location means you are ideally situated for exploring the mountainous terrain of the Lake District. With walks to Helvellyn and St Sunday Crag available from the doorstep within a mile radius, the stoned cottage is perfect for keen and ambitious hikers.

The converted barn has also hosted HRH, the Prince of Wales. Prince Charles attended a meeting on the sustainability of hill farming in 2009, which took place in the Byre itself. Whether you visit in the heat of summer or shelter from the frosty winds of winter, the modern barn conversion is a perfect retreat for your family, allowing you a glimpse of the traditional and peaceful way of life many of us long for.
