This luxury cottage has been furnished with care and attention to detail and by using the skills of local craftsmen, boasts charm and authentic individuality which is certain to appeal. Stone Barn Cottage is situated on a working farm along with two other holiday properties, set in 400 acres of picture perfect countryside. Nestled just outside the Lake District National Park hot spots of Windermere and Bowness, in the popular village of Ings. The farm itself dates back over 400 years and is still a working farm today.
