We offer a warm welcome to our recently renovated, well equipped 17C barn next to our home, a former farmhouse built in 1687 in the picturesque conservation village of Helton. Helton is situated in the quiet NE corner of the Lake District National Park, half way between Ullswater (5miles) and Haweswater (6miles), within easy access of all the Park's mountains, lakes and fells, with a wide variety of outdoor activities and good village pubs close by. It really is a home away from home at affordable prices for couples, families or groups of friends, with all you need to create your peaceful and memorable Lakeland holiday!
We pride ourselves in our attention to every detail to make your stay memorable and we clean the property ourselves to maintain a consistently high standard of presentation. Whilst we're on hand next door if needed to help with any questions you may have, we also absolutely respect your privacy.
We have equipped and decorated the barn for you to relax in an atmosphere of calm tranquility in light airy rooms. We have combined antique and contemporary furniture and paintings in a traditional Lakeland country style. Upstairs, you'll love the stylish master bedroom with 5ft 4-poster bed and en-suite bathroom; the pretty double room with basin and wonderful views across the garden and valley beyond; and the third bedroom with full-sized 3ft bunk beds. Downstairs is a second bathroom with walk-in shower, toilet and basin. After a day out amongst the fells, you'll look forward to a great night's sleep on quality mattresses, with fluffy down duvets and pillows, sumptuous Egyptian cotton bedding and towels.
Downstairs is a cosy beamed living room with views over the garden and across the valley. It has a log burner, comfy sofas, throws and dining area, with flat screen TV, DVD, CD player, super fast wi-fi, iPod dock, well stocked bookcase and games. The newly-fitted kitchen has a dishwasher, washer dryer, fridge freezer, electric cooker and microwave, and full range of cooking/roasting/baking equipment.
In summer you'll love relaxing with a barbecue and glass of wine in our garden, enjoying the expansive view across the valley. In winter, what better way to end your day than to snuggle up in front of the glowing log burner for a cosy candlelit night in, after a day out exploring all that the Lake District has to offer? Or treat yourselves to dinner out in one of our local award-winning pubs or restaurants?
