Description

Located in the northern part of the Lake District National Park, this traditional barn conversion is surrounded by open countryside, green landscapes and stunning fells. The owner, who lives next door, has maintained the traditional feel of the property, and is often on hand to offer a warm welcome to guests.

The open plan layout upstairs incorporates original features such as a beamed ceiling and traditional barn style windows, whilst the kitchen is more than adequate to provide a hearty meal, though with many local country pubs offering fine ales, good food and excellent company, you may choose to leave cooking for another time. Downstairs, the double bedroom takes full advantage of the views straight from the bed, with an adjacent bathroom. Enjoy a morning coffee or evening drink in the enclosed garden and you may find yourself joined by either the resident red squirrels or one of the many wild birds that inhabit the area.

Nestled in a tranquil and peaceful location between the delightful village of Hesket Newmarket and Mungrisdale, Little Bay Byre is perfect for couples who like to get out and explore, you can head straight from the door to the nearby, quieter fells such as High Pike, Birkett and Bowscale Fell. If you prefer two wheels, there are numerous quiet country lanes to journey around on, and with covered storage next to the cottage, you are free to explore whenever and however you wish.

Nearby is Hesket Newmarket, famous for its micro-brewery and where you can enjoy one of the beers at its popular local inn, a mecca for real ale drinkers. A short drive away is the market town of Keswick and neighbouring lakes Bassenthwaite and Derwent Water, perfect for a gentle walk and cooling dip for your four legged friend. Shop, pub and restaurant 3½ miles.

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.
