This property is a perfect spot for enjoying what the Lake District has to offer. As well as what is available from the doorstep many popular destinations, Keswick, Cockermouth, Penrith, Carlisle and Hadrian's Wall, and slightly further afield the Solway Coast with its sandy beaches and spectacular views across the Solway Firth to Scotland can be found around 25 minutes away.

 
This beautiful barn conversion sits in fantastic surroundings with fields as far as the eye can see, and the impressive view of the Northern Fells mountain range and the back of Skiddaw in the distance.

The kitchen is to the left, fully equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge / freezer, dishwasher, washing machine (tumble drier located next door), Nespresso coffee machine, cafetiere and bread baking making – with all of the ingredients to get yourself started! All perfectly rounded off with beautiful finishing touches throughout. Just off the dining area is a downstairs shower room and WC as well as a useful under the stairs cupboard – perfect for drying off those wet boots! Upstairs takes you to two tastefully decorated bedrooms (one king and one twin room with tv). There is additional storage in the large landing area and space to hang up clothes. The upstairs bathroom includes a roll top bath and WC, again wonderfully finished.
