Description

Bumblebee Barn is the last word in luxury and elegance set in the beautiful Cumbrian countryside. Originally two barn conversions Bumblebee Barn now offers guests to the area the chance to enjoy real family time together and can sleep up to 12 family and friends. The delightful living areas are all about family enjoying relaxing time together, yet offers the space for you to have a little ’me time’ just on your own. The kitchen/dining area is a particularly sociable space where you can all cook and eat together reminiscing over your day’s adventures. Bumblebee Barn was converted in 2020 and with the owner’s eye for detail, many original features are visible throughout, particularly the traditional Cumbrian barn threshing floor where there is now a delightful sitting and video games area. Outside there is a private courtyard and patio for you to enjoy, a delightful way to spend a summers evening with good company and surrounded by open countryside.
Bumblebee Barn is located in a dark sky area the perfect place to spend a memorable evening in your own private hot tub, gazing at the starry night sky which is just spectacular. The area is the perfect place to base yourself to explore the many beautiful areas that await you. The Lake District National Park is just a short drive away, whilst the stunning Solway Coast and Scottish Borders can tempt you for a wider view of the countryside. No stay in Cumbria is complete without visiting Hadrian’s Wall, an iconic monument built by the Romans. Stretching 73 miles from Wallsend near Newcastle, across the neck of England to the Solway coast in North West Cumbria. Why not walk alongside a stretch of the wall or cycle along the well-known Coast to Coast (C2C) route.

About the local area

Located high in the Northern Lakes on the northern fringe of the Lake District National Park lie the ancient fell villages of Caldbeck, Hesket Newmarket and Uldale. This area is rich walking and cycling country, with breathtaking local peaks such as Skiddaw and Blencathra, old mine trails and picturesque limestone gorges with waterfalls waiting to be explored.

This area is rich walking and cycling country, with breathtaking local peaks such as Skiddaw and Blencathra, old mine trails and picturesque limestone gorges with waterfalls waiting to be explored. It really is a place to `get away from it all' but is also within comfortable reach of Bassenthwaite, Derwentwater and Ullswater lakes.

The renowned Mae's Tea Room and Gallery in Uldale is open throughout the year, serving tasty home cooked food through the day and some evenings and exhibits paintings by local artists. 

Enjoy a tipple and some lovely pub grub at Emily's Black Lion - a traditional, family friendly village pub nestling on the Northern fringe of the Lake District in the lovely village of Ireby.

Named after the `cold beck' which runs through the village, Caldbeck was once an important centre for lead mining and corn and woollen milling. The old mines have long since blended back into the dramatic landscape and the mills are now craft workshops and a locally well known restaurant called `Priests Mill'. At the centre of the village is St. Ketingern's church dating back to 1112.

Just down the road is Hesket Newmarket, a pretty village set around a wide green with a canopied market cross. Hesket is also known for its tiny brewery which supplies several local inns within the area.
