Set against the spectacular backdrop of Blencathra, with two pubs within walking distance and direct access onto the Skiddaw fell range.
Nestling into the slopes of Blencathra, this property really does enjoy a most impressive location in a tranquil, elevated position with stunning views to St John’s in the Vale, Castle Rock and Clough Head. As the name suggests, the accommodation is an apartment on the first floor of a converted barn, adjoining the main farmhouse. There are many walking opportunities from the doorstep with direct access on to Blencathra and footpaths to Skiddaw and Latrigg. The village of Threlkeld, which has a wonderful coffee shop/theatre/cinema/concert hall, as well as two pubs each serving good food and real ale, are a 10-minute walk along the footpath. Despite the accommodation being on the first floor, the access is via a barn door at ground level to the rear, as the house is built into the slope of Blencathra. Once inside the accommodation is all on one level with an open plan living space with a cosy wood burner, a spacious double bedroom with lots of storage and an en-suite shower room with two wash basins and fantastic views! The vibrant tourist town of Keswick is only 4 miles away and has a wealth of amenities. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 800 yards.
