Property code: SZ232

With panoramic views of the Newlands Valley and the northern fells, this characterful stone barn offers a peaceful getaway for families or friends with excellent walks on your doorstep.

Boasting a prime location between Bassenthwaite Lake and Derwentwater, this holiday home is located in a stand-out spot for truly soaking up the very best of the Cumbrian countryside. Suitable for outdoor adventure holidaymakers or those who prefer to take it easy and enjoy strolling around local towns, this self-catering cottage offers the perfect base for all. Sleeping an impressive eight guests, you'll be pleased to find that this four-bedroom property is equipped with an abundance of space for your entire group to call their own. Travel to this National Park beauty spot with a group of friends, a selection of couples or even your extended family, bringing along one big or two small dogs should your getaway be a dog-friendly one!

Traditionally decorated with a ton of original features, this converted farmhouse property offers you and your group the chance to step back in time and enjoy some of the simpler things in life. For example, the majestic open-plan living space is separated by an authentic stone fireplace with wood burner set inside, perfect for curling up by the warmth of an open flame and chatting away come the evening. Stone flagged flooring unites the kitchen, lounge and dining room, whilst a look out of any of the windows or the French doors allows you to admire the stunning mountain views that the Lake District is well known for. Of course, during warm and sunny weather you'll be able to appreciate these views even more from the garden. This enclosed space, set to lawn, features an outdoor dining table for al fresco evenings, no doubt accompanied by good food or a local tipple. As night falls, you'll be pleased to find four bedrooms laid out across the ground and first floor. Although all of these are equally comfortable, two of the bedrooms do benefit from sumptuous king-size beds that you can sink into and dream of days just passed.

Lovely location for this cottage - with expansive views over to Skiddaw.. Good walks directly from the barn- very nice stroll through the woods to Braithwaite, or up into the Whinlatter Forest.

Stayed at Hall Garth Barn this week, location was perfect, very quiet, views from every window was stunning, pub was a pleasant stroll away, access to the surrounding area easy, the barn was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and bed linen clean and fresh, and the barn was quite child friendly.

Great location of barn - wonderful views. The cottage is all on one level so great for multi generational guests. Well equipped kitchen and lovely garden. Please note that when we visited there is only WIFI access in one half of the property and 8 guests have share one ensuite shower - this may not bother you :)

We chose this barn for a family getaway of 4 generations plus dog. It is in a peaceful location with stunning views and great local walks and amenities. We loved watching the lambs in the field opposite and the birds in the garden. The shower in the bathroom is not really a proper option so ended up queing for the main one. The locks need attentionRead more. Otherwise we found everything we needed, the barn is spacious and comfortable and an ideal base for a family holiday. Would stay again. Hide

Fabulous location, but a little pricey for a half-term holiday. Lots of character, but access to end bedroom is for short people only! Shame the back door was kept locked. Really enjoyed the log fire.

This property was perfect for a large family get together, with spectacular views over Skiddaw, and only 3 miles into Keswick. Braithwaite is within walking distance, where the Coledale Inn looked after us very well. The cooking, sitting and eating areas were ideal, with the added bonus of the small snug room for watching TV or reading. The beds weRead morere very comfortable, with lovely bed linen. Hide
