Nestling into the slopes of Blencathra, this property really does enjoy a most impressive location in a tranquil, elevated position with stunning views to St Johns in the Vale, Castle Rock and Clough Head. As the name suggests, the accommodation is an apartment on the first floor of a converted barn, adjoining the main farmhouse. There are many walking opportunities from the doorstep with footpaths to Blencathra, Skiddaw and Latrigg. The village of Threlkeld, which has two pubs each serving good food and real ale, are a 10 minute walk along the footpath. The owner lives in the farmhouse and is a fully qualified instructor in outdoor pursuits. By prior arrangement he will act as a guide or instructor for rock climbing, fell walking or mountain biking, subject to availability.
