Whitbarrow itself was converted from an 18th century Cumberland farm, and retains much of its charm with a cobbled street, clock tower, flower filled courtyards and lawned areas.
The village also offers outdoor activities for the whole family, from 18 hole crazy golf and a 9 hole putting green course; a childrens adventure play area; a giant outdoor chess game, and lovely landscaped gardens. There is also a laundry room with two washing machines and two tumble driers.
Whitbarrow is very easily accessible from the M6 (junction 40), only 15 minutes away, but is right by the mountains and fells of the Lakes. Beautiful Ullswater is about 10 minutes drive away, Keswick 15 minutes, and then beyond Keswick, past Helvelyn, lies the honeypot village of Grasmere (20 minutes from Keswick), Bassenthwaite, Buttermere and Derwent. The Lake District is a very compact area, so nothing is really far away!
