Enter the bright, open-plan kitchen/lounge/diner, perfect for socialising. Prepare meals in the well-equipped kitchen, which is fitted with an electric oven and hob, a fridge with a freezer compartment, a microwave, a dishwasher and washing machine. Enjoy delicious meals at the dining table before settling down by the Jotul wood burner for an evening of film watching. The large bi-fold doors, which take up the back wall of the living room, provide you with a beautiful backdrop of countryside views. On the ground floor, you’ll also find the twin bedroom which can be made into a king upon request and boasts French doors onto the patio and its own Smart TV. Finally, there is a shower room with a WC and washbasin. Upstairs on the mezzanine, the king bedroom is lovingly furnished with Velux windows to let the light stream in.

There is also a handy lockable bike shed for storing some essential gear. There is private parking for two cars on the property.

Had a great holiday. The Stick Barn is a lovely, cosy cottage with amazing views. The bed was so comfy slept really well. Great location to visit the South Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales. The lane approaching the cottage was very narrow but luckily we only met one other car.

Absolutely fantastic holiday! The Stick Barn is a beautiful property, it looks amazing in the photos but is even more impressive 'in real life'. It was very clean and included everything we needed, the little extra touches of local jam and milk and lots of leaflets/maps giving info about the area were brilliant. The beds are super comfy too! The loRead morecation is lovely and quiet, it feels like you're in the middle of nowhere, when in fact it's actually not too far from loads of things to see and do. Hide
