Description

Swallow Barn is a beautifully presented, two bedroom end of terrace barn conversion quietly set in a small, picturesque village in the Caldbeck Fells in Cumbria, one of the most beautiful regions in the country. It is the most delightful property in which to spend time away from home with its cosy wood burner in the living room, the comfortable beds and modern bathrooms, not to mention the delightful garden to the rear, it really adds that little extra something to a holiday in the Lake District.

The peaceful village of Torpenhow is the ideal spot for exploring the area. The even quieter Northern Fells are on your doorstep with many walks, yet easily accessible for day trips are the popular tourist towns of Keswick, Cockermouth and the historic city of Carlisle. The famous Hadrian’s Wall is only a short drive as well as Dumfries and Galloway, the Scottish Borders and the Yorkshire Dales. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

About the local area

Bassenthwaite Lake and village of the same name is situated just north west of Keswick in the Northern Lakes. The magnificent Skiddaw (931m) can be seen rising to the east and Grisedale Pike (790m) to the south west.

Paths leading from Bassenthwaite village connect to circular walks in the area and holidaymakers are able to go fishing and sailing on the lake. From May to September look out for the wild Bassenthwaite Lake Ospreys raising their young chicks or watch the video link from Whinlatter Forest Visitor's Centre. Try a visit to the historic 17th century manor house, Mirehouse, which is close by on the eastern shore of the lake and has some lovely garden walks (Open April - October) or travel a few miles west to market town of Cockermouth or just a little further to Maryport on the coast.

This area offers the ideal base for exploring nearby Keswick; a charming Northern Lakes market town of great character and is well placed for touring the untouched northern and western lakes.
