Description

The Long Barn is a traditional, semi-detached Lakeland stone barn conversion dating back to the mid 18th century, which has been sympathetically and stylishly converted while retaining a number of original features. The exposed stone walls, stunning beams, traditional multiple windows, antique furniture and multi-fuel burner are offset with the contemporary conveniences you’d expect, including an en-suite in the master bedroom and excellent quality soft furnishings. The owners have tried to think of every luxury feature including underfloor heating with individual thermostats in every room powered by the biomass boiler, outdoor tap for rinsing down the dog (or kids) after a muddy walk, drying room and even a battery point for charging your electric car!
Nestling in the Roughton Gill valley and surrounded by the beautiful Caldbeck Fells, there is plenty to do with walks and cycling on the Cumbria Way cycle route right outside the door. The popular and picturesque village of Caldbeck with traditional pubs and charming café next to a waterwheel is only three miles away. Or, why not go just slightly further to Hesket New Market where you can enjoy a pint brewed on site at the local inn, which is famous for being Britain’s first registered co-operatively owned pub. Keswick with its range of fantastic independent shops, eateries for every palate and museums is only 16 miles away. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
The Long Barn can be booked together with Branthwaite Stable (CC119146) and The Hayloft (UK12652) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

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.
