The Stick Barn is currently undergoing renovations, more photographs to follow soon (September 2021)General Description
The Stick Barn is a newly converted 17th century old barn in the peaceful hamlet of Newbiggin, not far from the quaint market town of Kirkby Lonsdale. Inside this delightful barn conversion, charming character features sit seamlessly alongside all of the modern comforts and conveniences you'd hope for in a home from home.
The open plan living-dining-kitchen area is a fantastic sociable space. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, handy microwave, fridge with a small freezer compartment and a useful dishwasher. Enjoy convivial meals around the dining table before retiring to the living area, which has a Jotul wood burning stove (an initial supply of logs is provided and further loads can also be purchased from the owner), perfect for relaxing evenings in in front of the fire. Feature bi-fold doors take up the entire back wall of the living area. Opening out the patio, they flood the space with light and allow for fantastic views over the Newbiggin valley, Whernside, Ingleborough and towards the Dent fells. There's also a 50 inch smart TV to watch in the main room - if you can take your eyes off the view that is!
Also on the ground floor is the first of the 2 bedrooms, a spacious twin that can also be up as a king upon request. Light and airy, French doors lead straight out onto the patio. This bedroom also has its own 32 inch smart TV. The shower room is also downstairs and has a WC, washbasin and modern shower cubicle, ideal for refreshing tired muscles after a day out exploring.
Stairs lead up from the living room to a mezzanine floor where you'll find the second bedroom with a king-size bed. A lovely bright space thanks to the electric Velux windows, you're sure to feel instantly relaxed in here.
As well as parking for 2 cars, The Stick Barn also has a delightful enclosed patio garden. With outdoor furniture and beautiful views over the surrounding countryside, it's a lovely spot for dining al fresco. A dog shower is also available, perfect for washing muddy paws! A lockable shed is available for storing bikes: ideal if you like to get out and about on two wheels!
Guests can also enjoy access to a private section of the river, owned by the cottage owners who live across the single track road. The river is accessed through the owners' fields and is a haven for wildlife: otters, kingfishers, deer, foxes and trout, as well as numerous different birds of prey, can all be seen depending on the season. A real treat and perfect for some real R&R in beautiful surroundings.
