Property code: LCC04

One of the finest holiday homes in the Lake District, this fantastic barn conversion is in a beautiful secluded location with stunning views and is just half a mile from the shores of Ullswater.

Lose yourself in the beauty of the Lake District from the comfort of this splendid barn conversion. Sleeping eight guests, across four bedrooms, it balances rustic character with interior elegance and provides your happy group with an abundance of space. Gaze for hours at the picturesque vistas of Lake Ullswater and its mountainous surroundings, take off on long walks or cycle rides through the countryside or just revel in being away together in this unique holiday home.

Set close to the Cumbrian village of Wreay, your striking stone property has been beautifully converted to offer exceptional living and sleeping space. Touches, such as the boot room, where you can kick muddy boots off and store your hiking gear, make this a comfortable and easy place to stay. The capacious central hall at the heart of the property doubles as a magnificent dining area, where you and your family and friends can sit down to lavish meals together on special occasions. Also make the most of your bright farmhouse kitchen – a few steps down – which is the perfect place to enjoy freshly made coffee and tasty English breakfasts straight from the Aga. Your impressive lounge, with its exquisite stone fireplace, provides ample space for everyone to congregate and watch TV or play a few games. Light the fire and simply enjoy being together. Head downstairs to discover another useful family room on the lower level. Here, in addition to the laundry room, there is a snug where children can watch TV or adults can find a little time to themselves away from the throng. Dine out in the fresh air to a backdrop of the scenic Lake District; soak up the sunshine on the terrace while the children explore the garden and play on the lawn.

Both the property and location exceeded expectations. Everything was top quality and the little arrival goodies were appreciated. The property information guide left nothing to chance covering all bases. The owner took the time to communicate to see that everything was OK, we had arrived and settled in. We will be back.
