Property code: 75286

A stunning barn conversion located in the South Lake District, with private 8 seater hot tub, balconies from two rooms and unspoilt views of the Duddon Estuary and surrounding countryside in all directions.

Immerse yourselves in the spectacular Lake District with a group break at this impressive barn conversion. Sleeping up to eight guests across four bedrooms, it also welcomes an extra two children under 14 who can sleep on a sofa bed on the mezzanine level. Set in the rolling hills of the South Lakes, about 1.5 miles from the village of Broughton Mills, it is well placed for reaching Coniston Water and Lake Windermere. Enjoy the space within the property, which dates back to the 1700s and has three bathrooms, two balconies and a private hot tub. Take up to four furry friends with you if you choose: they will enjoy spending time out in the enclosed garden or heading off with the rest of the group on long walks through the national park.

From the barn’s reception hall, with its glass staircase, wander on through to the spacious lounge/kitchen/diner. Cook up treats for your entire group in here and even whip up a fresh loaf in the bread maker. Dine together round the table then gather in the lounge to light the wood burner, and play games, watch the Smart TV or gaze out across the undulating Lake District through the huge windows. Find a utility room downstairs, as well as the former annexe, where there is a second open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner in which you can cook, relax and pull open the patio doors onto your outside space. Venture up to the first floor from this part of the house or from the entrance hall to your bedrooms. Three of these have en-suite bath or shower rooms, while two have access on to private balconies and another opens on to the outside space with the hot tub. The mezzanine floor is also at this level. Soak up the sunshine and fresh air from your balconies or BBQ and hot tub area or play with the children out in the garden. There is generous off-road parking for your party.

The location is exceptional; off the beaten track, private, with spectacular views and the freedom to walk a right of way from the gate. We are a three generation family with several dogs, and all appreciated the space inside, and especially the well maintained and securely fenced grounds. The property is cleaned to a good standard and the furniturRead moree in the shared living spaces is appropriate and comfortable, but the crockery and kitchen equipment should be improved and updated..

Stunning property in a spectacular albeit remote location. Lack of a welcome pack was disappointing in a high end rental.

The shower in the master bedroom was useless, producing only a trickle of cold water. Great property in a fabulous location but some niggles Hide

This property is in a fabulous location with brilliant views and really helpful neighbours. Cleanliness was a big issue for us and the lack of water meant only one of the four showers was useable. Two just delivered scalding hot water so be aware with young children. We unblocked one of the sinks ourselves and photographed the issues which Holiday Read moreCottages are now aware of. If the cleaning can be improved and water supply sorted this will be a fabulous holiday property. Hide
