Soak up the sublime setting of this 17th century Lakeland barn which has been converted to the highest of standards, with luxury touches throughout. The living space is beautifully convivial with fantastic views and sofas in the kitchen, and a gorgeously comfortable lounge with cream leather sofas and cosy woodburning stove. Outside you have space, and lots of it! The garden has little areas to explore, a large lawn surrounded by trees and split level patio.

Located in a rural spot on the outskirts of Bowness-on-Windermere, the village is just under two miles away by car. If you want to head off on foot, the Dales Way footpath runs close to the house and takes you into Bowness in just over one mile. For dining out do sample the fine dining menu at The Gilpin just up the road from The Hayloft or head into Bowness and Windermere for a choice of pubs, restaurants and cafes. If you’re a keen golfer, then you’ll enjoy having Windermere Golf Course nearby and anyone who enjoys messing about on a boat has a great range of hire and launching options to get out on the lake. There is also a network of lovely rural footpaths nearby with ever-changing and ever-beautiful views.

The Hayloft is ideally located for exploring the southern Lake District. Bowness is just a short drive away giving you access to Windermere lake shore and the regular boat services across the lake linking all the local attractions as well as providing stunning views on the way. Explore the independent shops in the courtyards of the pretty market town of Kendal, follow the trail of Wordsworth to picture-perfect Grasmere or explore the lesser known areas of the Lake District peninsulas bordering on to Morecombe Bay.
