This converted traditional Lakeland stone barn is situated in a picturesque rural location at the end of a small lane and next to the bridle path to Grizedale Forrest.

It is only a 5 minute walk into the village of Hawkshead, which is a pleasant walk either down the lane, or across the field and through the churchyard.

Hawkshead is a beautiful village of historical interest. It has a small supermarket, newsagents and post office and a section of independent shops. Milk and other local fresh produce can be delivered daily. There are also four Pubs in the village all serving food as well as a selection of cafes.

The Barn is comfortably furnished and well equipped to ensure a ‘home from home’ with everything you need to enjoy your self catering experience. The views from the large front bedroom are stunning.

There are many walks from the door and direct cycle access to the numerous mountain biking trails in Grizedale Forest.

Esthwaite Water offers fishing and there are many interesting places to visit including Tarn Hows, Beatrix Potter’s home Hill Top, Wray Castle and Brantwood. Ambleside, Coniston,Windermere & Bowness are just a short drive or ferry ride away.
