We arrived late after a long drive from Kent to this beautiful, tranquil 17th century converted barn with its old oak beams and comforting wood burning stove... instantly we all relaxed including our border collies! It's location couldn't have been better, set in the very heart of the Lake District with amazing views over the surrounding countryside and just a short walk from the village of Hawkshead. The barn was beautifully presented and equipped to a very high standard with all sorts of little welcoming extras. We could not recommend this more strongly for anyone wanting a relaxing break in the stunning lake district.
