Recently hailed by the Telegraph as one of the top 30 properties to purchase, this beautifully presented property is brimming with charm both inside and out.

Fall in love with this medieval cruck barn, hidden in the tranquil hamlet of Thorphinsty. Sleeping eight, this is a venue for those looking to experience the Lake District in the most spectacular way. A historical treasure saved from dereliction, this Grade II listed building has been restored to its former glory and then some. Lavish interiors, high ceilings and nods to its rich past make this home a one-of-a-kind backdrop for a memorable celebration.

Feel the exclusivity of the location from the moment you embark down the gated driveaway, and then stop at the bottom to admire the great barn doors. Formal gardens and wild meadows wrap around the barn, framing its beautiful architecture; take a little stroll through the grounds and you'll discover a sweet shepherds hut and garden room to hide away in. Stepping inside, the detail of the craftsmanship is sure to be the first thing you notice. The large living space (also known as the Great Hall) is split into three sections: the kitchen, dining and living area. An oak panel separates the solid wood units, twin Belfast sink and super Lacanche range cooker of the kitchen from the rest of the vaulted room. On the other side is the perfect dining setting. Imagine hosting a dinner party at the grand oak table, while the wood burner roars, and the sound of laughter and music bounce off the canopy of huge ancient oak beams and trusses. Round off the evening with a nightcap at the far end of the room, immersed in one of the armchairs, soaking in the atmosphere. If you're looking for somewhere a little more private to relax, you can sneak off down the stone steps to the snug, pop the fire on and curl up in front of the TV. Once you're finally ready to take yourself to bed, there are four bedrooms to choose from, one of which is accessed via a winding stone stairway. With three gorgeous king-sized bedrooms, all with en-suites, and one bedroom with full-size bunk beds, all guests are guaranteed a peaceful night's sleep.

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

Please note there is a refundable £300 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

  • 4 bedrooms – 1 en-suite king-size on the lower floor, 1 bunk bedroom and 1 en-suite zip-and-link king-size (can be made up as two singles by prior request) on the gallery level and 1 en-suite king-size on the upper floor accessed via winding stone steps

It was a great location with beautiful scenery. The bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable. The hall is the best room with a lovely fireplace, its a lovely room to be in at night when you have a fire roaring next to you. Its a beautiful place.

We found the property to be perfect for us to celebrate my wifes birthday with friends and family, because of the design and layout of the property there was plenty of space but you could go to an area within the property to have some peace. The roads leading to the property area very narrow and it requires carful driving, the location is perfect lRead moreovely and quiet. Hide

Lovely converted barn with pleasant countryside views. Good walks from the doorstep. Mason Arms is within an easy walk through the wood and on quiet roads.

Fantastic cottage! In a great location not far from amenities including a couple of good pubs but far enough away to get peace and quiet. Wouldnt hesitate to stay again.

Lovely House with access to hill walking and not too far from Windermere/Ambleside. Perfect for a family celebration.
