    Details

    A luxury 5 star, 17C barn conversion, sleeping 2 + cot. Renovated to a high standard retaining its original character with oak beams, but with a contemporary twist, offering spacious boutique accommodation using local materials, such as slate floors, Herdwick wool carpets, and art from the area.

    Large open plan living area incorporating a lounge with sumptuous soft furnishings, a contemporary log effect real flame gas fire. Wi-Fi, 32" Freesat HD TV, Blu-ray record, stereo with USB port. The well fitted modern kitchen has black gloss and brushed stainless steel units and a dining area. Door opening on to high level private patio overlooking the rear garden. Super-king size/twin bedroom with superb views down the valley through a feature coloured glass window and Freesat TV. Luxury bathroom with bath and separate shower cubical with power shower.

    Idyllically located in a quiet position nestled at the foot of Place Fell, within walking distance from the local amenities and pub of the picturesque village of Patterdale and only a mile from the shores of Ullswater.

    The area has lots to offer, activities such as sailing, cycling, horse riding, country pursuits and outdoor adventure activities are all available locally, and of course excellent walking for all abilities from the front door, with the towering Helvellyn visible from the property and the start of the High Street range just around the corner.

    Patterdale is a popular base for touring the Lakes. Surrounded by Penrith, Keswick, Windermere and Ambleside all within a 30-minute drive. Attractions in the area include Dalemain House, Aira Force arboretum and falls, the Kirkstone Pass and Rheged.

    Once owned by the well-known poet William Wordsworth this stylish cottage is the perfect retreat for romantic breaks; relaxing holiday’s and out of season short breaks in quality accommodation.
