The property offers a memorable backdrop to special occasions and family celebrations, thanks to its elegant, exposed beams, striking stone walls, and fascinating antique furniture. The holiday home is set over many levels, creating lots of different spaces to relax and unwind, as well as providing spacious open-plan areas for entertaining. A small flight of stairs from the ground floor brings you to the first of the living areas. This bright and airy space features an island where you can gather for breakfast, a chic kitchen with an electric induction range cooker, as well as plenty of seating areas. A further living area can be found on the second floor. This cosy spot has a roaring wood burner, as well as a grand dining table to seat everyone. The property has four bedrooms, including a twin on the ground floor and a double in the eaves (watch out for the restricted head height). A separate entertainment room houses a snooker table.

It’s also the birthplace of William Wordsworth; Wordsworth House in the centre of town offers a fascinating insight into the poet’s early years. Grab your buckets and spades and journey to the coast for a traditional day at the seaside in Allonby (8 miles). Tuck into ice creams on the 5-mile stretch of sand and shingle beach, paddle in the waves or stretch your legs with a stroll along the Cumbrian Coastal Way, which passes through the village.

We had a lovely holiday, the place is beautifully situated and while it is on a grand scale it is very homely and excellent for families. The games room was a great addition.

What an amazing stay! Everything you would need for a relaxing holiday was catered for. The attention to detail was fantastic, with all rooms spotless and affording luxurious comfort. The gardens are beautiful and surronding views are to die for. We would certainly recommend (and already have) this barn conversion and location to family and friends

Elwood will now officially become my home in the Lake District! I cannot find a single negative thing to say about this wonderful property, it was perfect in every way. Its huge, offering every possible convenience you could wish for. The layout has been so cleverly designed that two families can have quality time together and yet still have space Read moreapart. The location is ideal, beautiful views, yet within a 6 min drive to the local town which has everything. I almost want to keep it a secret! Hide

Great house in good location. This was our 3rd stay. Everything we needed was there. The bedrooms were all comfortable and each had access to it's own bathroom. The top level living/dining room is great. .
