About Mrs Jenny Clark
The Barn has been in the family for generations as a working farm and once it was no longer viable to farm in the village , my husband undertook to renovate the barn and took 3 years to turn it into a modern day house, which has a cosy friendly feel .
Mrs Jenny Clark purchased this Barn in 1994
Why Mrs Jenny Clark chose Keswick
The Barn has a perfect location in the heart of the quiet village of Braithwaite and it was oozing with character, it is a perfect base for guests to explore the tranquil enviroment of the Northen Lake district and yes I am biased it is definately the most beautiful part of the Lakes - a hidden gem ! We wanted to retain as many original features as possible , such as the oak beams , the large Barn doors (now windows) and the stone archway in the pretty lilac double room. There are always improvements that we would like to do , and as soon as one project is over , another idea comes to mind!
What makes this Barn unique
This cottage has a delightful location in the heart of the quiet village of Braithwaite , making it a superb base for walkers , cyclists and Sight seers alike . Whinlatter forest is also only a 15 minute walk, as is the picturesque market town of Keswick and Derwentwater lake . Looking out of the Lounge and Upstairs bedroom windows you see the majestic Skiddaw mountain range , which looks different every minute of the day with the rays of sunlight on it or snow capping .
Max guests:6 (sleeps up to 6 adults)
If using the wood burning Stove this must be cleaned out and cold ashes removed before departure .

Comfortable well located property
Accommodation was excellent but little outside space and limited parking. Some issues regarding contact with the owner but otherwise a really enjoyable stay.
All Home Comforts
Well equipped, comfortable cottage with everything needed for a family of six. Excellent TV, dishwasher and washing machine and plenty of games and jigsaws for wet weather entertainment.
Thank you very much for your kind comments , I am glad that you enjoyed your stay in our holiday home . I just wish the weather had been kinder to you !
Fantastic week in the Lake District
The property was amazing. The beds were comfortable, the rooms big and the kitchen well stocked with all the utensils a family might require (plenty of big saucepans and decent kitchen knives etc). High quality TV and excellent Wifi. It was the perfect base for us to explore the Northern Lake District and mount a challenge on Scafell Pike!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our holiday home . Its a shame the weather wasn';t the best it could be , but it sounds like you have made the most of your time in the Lake District .
I hope we can welcome you back again if you return to this area ,
Our first family holiday in the Lake District.
The house is as the photos and description say. It was an ideal base for us to begin exploring the Lakes. The house is well equipped - the lounge was a great place to rest at the end of the day, kitchen well equipped. A place we'd be glad to stay in again.
Thank you for your kind review and I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our holiday home . I hope you all had a safe journey home ,
Great time in Braithwaite
This was the perfect Lake District holiday. Great location, plenty of space (for a father with three adult daughters), clean and well equipped. We enjoyed canoeing on Derwent water, ascended skiddaw, helvellyn and catbells. Thank you for a great rental. .
The village of Braithwaite has the best of both worlds - a quiet, safe, interesting village, where there are a choice of 4 village pubs to eat and drink -or if you want more choice Keswick is only 2 miles.
The area is a haven for walkers and Braithwaite is overlooked by the stunning Coledale Horseshoe - a magnificent walk with amazing views
Another historical Cumbrian town is Cockermouth, only twelve miles West of Braithwaite. Birthplace of the poet Wordsworth, Cockermouth is also home to the famous Jennings Brewery (where tours are available!)
Driving over Whinlatter Pass takes you to Lorton Valley, a stunning area which leads you to Crummock water, Loweswater and Buttermere . From Buttermere you can head either over Newlands Pass into Newlands valley or Honister Pass into Borrowdale valley, both which have tremendous views.
Other nearby recreational interests include the Keswick Golf Club (6 miles) and sailing on Derwentwater or Bassenthwaite (1 mile)
Keswick Pencil Museum , Go-Ape and Whinlatter forest are all with 2.5 miles
Golf: 2 Golf Courses close by at Keswick Golf Club or Cockermouth Golf Club
