Property code: SZ154

A beautifully converted barn holiday home, in the heart of the Lake District, suitable for a couple seeking tranquillity or outdoor activities and the chance to immerse themselves in nature.

Make your romantic getaway to this enchanting stone haven for two, in idyllic surroundings, about 1 mile from the small village of Patterdale and picturesque Ullswater. Tucked away in the Grisedale Valley, it is located after the farm road finishes, making it ideal for anyone seeking solitude. Head off from here on foot to explore the Helvellyn range; climb St Sunday Crag, just over 1 mile away; see serene Grisdale Tarn, about 2.5 miles away. Hike 4 miles to impressive Aira Force Waterfall and take in the views over Ullswater. Catch a steamer from Aira Force to Pooley Bridge, where you can hire your own boat if you wish. Head to Penrith, 14.5 miles away, to go shopping and dine out.

Find your way to this rural idyll, once home to cattle and now an inviting, stylish sanctuary with an abundance of character features, including exposed beams and stonework. Step in to find yourselves in the entrance hall from which there is a door into the beautifully finished bathroom. This has a rustic stone feature wall, bath with shower above, WC and hand basin plus an electric towel rail. Take a few steps up from the hall to discover the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with its vaulted ceiling, skylight windows, gorgeous old A-frame beams and natural stonework. Chose a DVD, then relax on the sofa in here to watch it or select some music for the CD player to listen to as you prepare a delicious dinner for two. Find the kitchen is equipped with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge with freezer section, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Whip up a meal then dine together at the table. At the end of long days out exploring the Lake District, lay your head in the double bedroom and wake up to leafy views.

Spend sunny afternoons sitting out in the garden, gazing out over the green surroundings or up at the clear starry skies. Light the BBQ and sizzle your supper out in the fresh air.

My week at Cruck Barn was absolutely wonderful, I cannot wait to return. Its setting is glorious - the sights and sounds are quite overwhelming. I loved the daily walk to and from Patterdale and being surrounded by tumbling streams, bah-ing sheep, cattle a-lowing & majestic views of Helvellyn & fells.

A fantastic accommodation in a magical setting- perfect for those who want to be alone in the mountains . Well appointed and equipped, warm and comfortable, the road ( single track lane) is most suitable for a 4x4 .. but our VW managed it ok.

Cottage was lovely, entrance round the back if you're arriving at night as we did.. take a torch! Everything was in good condition and worked, it felt very cosy, though no log fire, and the outdoors was stunning, waterfall outside back door, close to the Helvellyn trail which descends with dramatic views of Ullswater into Glenridding. We ate a coupRead morele of times at Fellbites who served lovely snacks, baked pots etc, beers, wines and nice cakes! Hide

We loved this cottage , we parked the car up and didnt move it until we left due to the great location. We walked through a week of storms and had no problems drying clothes, draughts or noise. The cottage layout was excellent allowing a cool bedroom and the rest of it warm. We will and have recommended it.

This barn is very cosy and comfortable and had everything we needed. All instructions given on the pre-information were spot on and we would definitely come again. Everything was provided that you would need. I was in waterfall heaven.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
