Equidistant between the popular villages of Windermere and Ambleside, but tucked away in the quiet Troutbeck Valley, is our stunning detached barn. Dog friendly and EV friendly, with a 7kW electric vehicle charger, it is also ideal as a romantic bolt-hole or as a base for exploring the Lakes. It has amazing views across the valley, with it's lush verdant meadows, grazed by the traditional Herdwick sheep. It is eco friendly, and cosy - heated by a biomass boiler and lit with LEDs.
On the ground floor is a stylish, modern kitchen with granite worktops and high quality appliances – a full height fridge/freezer, dishwasher, induction hob, fan-assisted oven, microwave and Nespresso coffee pod machine. The views from the window over the valley are fantastic. There is a useful drying/cloak room with a Bosch washer/drier.
Upstairs is a large living space with a Sony 4kTV with Apple Airplay and Google Chromecast, so you can stream content from your own devices on the screen. There is also a Blu-ray player and Bluetooth sound-bar providing lots of entertainment options while snuggled on the comfy sofas. The views get even better from the large upstairs window in this room. Adjacent, there is a romantic and stylish bedroom with a large, comfy king-size bed and solid oak furniture. There is a porcelain tiled bathroom just off the bedroom. This has a shower over the bath and a cute tiny window overlooking a waterfall. There is a balcony door in the bedroom, with a stone staircase leading outside.
There are two patio areas outside - one next to a waterfall (provided that the fells have been wet enough!) and another at the opposite end of the Barn, with a table and chairs, a charcoal BBQ and a great view of the valley.
Spa, sauna, swimming pool and gym access is included, free with your stay.
The Lakes has a good bus service. For those with a car, there is a parking space just outside the barn. This is fitted with a 7kW EV charger for those who wish to bring and charge an electric vehicle.
We are happy to welcome up to two well behaved dogs. However, if you have more than two dogs, feel free to contact us to discuss your needs as we are sometimes flexible, depending on the breed/size etc. No cats allowed, thanks.
The owners provide a breakfast basket including: corn-flakes, granola, brown bread, white bread, conserves, butter, tea, Nespresso coffee pods, milk, sugar.
