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 .

Lake District break
A lovely property, clean and well equipped and ideally situated
We had no reason to even need to contact the owner
Lovely cottage close to Keswick
This is a lovely cottage close to Keswick but just far enough away to be clear of the crowds. The owners Jenny and Steve make you very welcome and the accommodation is clean and well prepared. We would have given it excellent except for the outside space which is very small and tucked in a corner.
It is however a great base to explore the Lake District and the fantastic scenery.
Great cottage in a fab location
Clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage. Great location within 10 minutes of Keswick and Whinlatter forest. Beautiful walks and hikes from the cottage and a pub right next door!
Very well equipped, comfortable cottage. Loved the village and surrounding area!
Great location, had some beautiful walks without too far to drive.Lots more left to do next year when we return (not to Barn Cottage as unavailable) Children loved their trip to the shop for ice creams and clambering in the brook close by. Overall a lovely family holiday.
Jenny responded to a request from us quickly and we loved Barn Cottage.
Our regular home from home
We will come here every year if we can. It is clean and homely and has everything you have at home (essentials) perfect views and location to relax or hit the hills.
Relaxing short break with the family
Found Cottage last minute and we were delighted with the house a real gem ! Thank you for the coffee and cake Jenny!
Thank You for your kind comments glad you enjoyed your short break in braithwaite
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
