The Experience

Enter the property through the useful boot room before continuing through to the breath-taking main living area. A vast vaulted space is divided into three areas, with a beautiful bespoke kitchen at one end.

Enter the property through the useful boot room before continuing through to the breath-taking main living area. A vast vaulted space is divided into three areas, with a beautiful bespoke kitchen at one end.

Designed with entertaining in mind, this impressive space features a central island with sociable breakfast bar, a twin Belfast sink, Lacanche range oven and plenty of worktop space for creating delicious family meals.

From the kitchen, step through to the central dining space, where a polished sandstone flagged floor sits beneath exposed oak ceiling beams and trusses. At the far end of the room is a cosy sitting room area with inviting armchairs and soft lighting.

Continue through to the sunny garden room, which is a peaceful and secluded space for relaxing with a good book in the afternoons.

Stone steps lead down to the lower floor and the snug, which boasts a stone fireplace with wood burner, comfortable sofas and a TV for cosy nights in after long days on foot. Also on this lower level is a spacious king-size bedroom with en-suite bathroom and delightful views.

From the sitting room area, steps lead up to an oak gallery off which there is a zip-and-link king-size bedroom together with a bunk bedroom and main bathroom. The last bedroom, located above the kitchen and accessed by a winding stone stairway, features a tall arched window overlooking the great hall, a king-size bed and en-suite shower room.

Outside, some nine acres of land surround the property, making this a wonderful choice for families.

Immediately outside the barn are formal lawned areas with herbaceous borders and al fresco dining spots. Beyond this, meadows, fields, fells and woodland are dissected by mown paths for enjoying wildlife-rich strolls through the grounds.

A shepherd’s hut overlooks two pretty ponds and offers a delightful base for afternoon picnics or evening BBQs.

Great Location!

It was a great location with beautiful scenery. The bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable. The hall is the best room with a lovely fireplace, its a lovely room to be in at night when you have a fire roaring next to you. Its a beautiful place.

We found the property to be perfect for us to celebrate my wifes birthday with friends and family, because of the design and layout of the property there was plenty of space but you could go to an area within the property to have some peace. The roads leading to the property area very narrow and it requires carful driving, the location is perfect lovely and quiet.

Located in the hamlet of Thorphinsty, the property lies in the lea of Cartmel fell looking out to the great limestone scar of Whitbarrow.

Set out on foot to follow the many walking trails that dissect this striking area, passing pretty hamlets and delightful village pubs along the way. Simpson Ground Tarn, a beautiful body of water set amongst a small woodland, is just 1.5 miles away and makes for an easy walk for a waterside picnic.

A short car ride will bring you to the foot of Lake Windermere and the River Leven, where you will find the villages of Newby Bridge, Lakeside, Finsthwaite and Backbarrow together with a selection of cafes, shops, galleries and boat trips.
