Checking for availability


Willow Barn is a traditional Lakeland stone built barn situated in the fabulous location of Bennethead; a small hamlet overlooking Ullswater and the surrounding fells of the Northern Lake District.

The detached barn is refurbished to provide a high-end, calm and luxurious retreat which combines clean Scandinavian open plan design and functionality with the rustic features of the original building. Great care has been taken to retain some of the original details of this former piggery, whilst incorporating modern comforts with superb attention to detail.

Willow Barn sleeps up to four people in the two bedrooms, however, it is the perfect retreat for couples who want to enjoy the space and privacy on their own.

The well equipped kitchen includes Miele and Smeg appliances, a boiling water tap and everything you would be looking for to whip up a meal.

The spacious shower room features a large walk-in rain shower, underfloor heating and heated towel rail.

There are two bedrooms, each equipped with a kingsize bed featuring Hypnos mattresses, goose down duvets and 100% Egyptian cotton linens. Non-allergenic duvets and pillows are also available and beds will be made upon with these if requested.

Willow Barn offers private enclosed gardens with wonderful views looking down towards the lake, across to the High Street range, Place Fell, Dollywagon Pike, Helvellyn and many other notable peaks. The garden is complete with comfortable outdoor furniture, perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee, or an evening glass of wine as you watch the sun set over the fells. Private driveway and parking.

Heating is provided through thermostatically controlled electric radiators and underfloor heating in the bathroom.

Dedicated Wi-Fi is available throughout the property. Mobile reception is varied depending on your network provider, coverage ranges from non-existent to 4G.
