Property code: SZ438

A gorgeous barn conversion for eight, set in the southern Lakes, with spectacular upstairs living to capture the views, and splendid gardens from which to soak up the scenery.

Head to this truly individual holiday home in the south of the Lake District and take a good-sized group with you. Up to eight guests and two dogs are welcome to stay at the impressive, four-bedroom property at Finsthwaite, 10 miles from the market town of Ulverston. Venture approximately 0.5 miles to the shores of scenic Lake Windermere or head just under a mile to picturesque High Dam. Members of your party might also like to spend time at Fell Foot, 3 miles away, where you can picnic, paddle, swim and go boating. From Newby Bridge, 2 miles from the barn, catch a ride on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway, which makes its way through spectacular Lakeland scenery.

Step into this bright, three-storey barn and find yourselves in a broad reception hall, where you can leave your boots and jackets in a cloakroom and find a separate WC. Wander on to discover the airy kitchen/diner, with its AEG double electric oven and separate electric hob, microwave, fridge, washing machine, and dishwasher. Prepare hearty meals then gather around the table to enjoy them together. Find an extra TV in here too. Make your way up to the first floor to relax in the lounge and bask in front of the open fire. Settle down together to watch the large TV, with Freesat, or a film on the DVD player. Perhaps listen to your favourite tunes via the Bluetooth Bose speaker after dinner. Members of your family might also like to spill into the sun-filled conservatory to take in the sweeping vistas or challenge each other to a board game. Find one of your bedrooms, which has a king-size bed and en-suite shower room with WC, is also at this level. Climb the stairs to the top floor to discover another king-size room, plus two twins with hand basins, all with low sloping ceilings. The family bathroom, with bath, shower and a separate WC, is also up here.

Enjoy the many levels and different outside spaces within the gorgeous grounds. Dine on either of the patios, light the BBQ and find the delightful secret garden. The attached garage is arranged as a games room, with table tennis and a dart board, and also has space for bicycles. A handy tumble dryer is also kept in here. The barn comes with parking for two cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Beautiful location and a lovely property. Perfect for three generations. The walk to High Dam is quite an easy slow climb - our 2 year old granddaughter managed it. Its a short walk on the road to Lakeside where there is an aquarium and you can catch a boat to Bowness. A longer walk through the woods takes you back to the property. Church bells rinRead moreg every 15 minutes but its not an issue. There is extra parking at the church but be aware you may get blocked in by ramblers parking for the day. Hide
