Description

Hilltoft Barn is a large, detached barn conversion in the peaceful Cumbrian village of Dockray, just a few miles from Ullswater. This beautiful property has a mezzanine level master bedroom and provides high quality accommodation for up to four people looking to explore the Lake District around Ullswater. Entering at ground level, you take in the glorious oak beams within the property. There is a twin bedroom also on this level, as well as dining area and a well-equipped kitchen, which boasts a stone-hidden oven hood and further oak finishes consistent with the charm of the property. The spacious living room has large patio doors welcoming in the sunshine, and from here a wooden staircase leads up to a delightful mezzanine level double bedroom, furnished in oak.
Outside, there is plenty of space to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the area. You can take in the stunning views from the private furnished patio, and there is ample gravelled space to take in the vistas from all angles.
Dockray is a tiny village, but still has its own pub to wander down to for some local fayre, and the gorgeous Aira Force Waterfall is a short walk away. Further on are the ample attractions of the Lake District around Ullswater.
Energetic pursuits abound, with cycling a particularly good option, or maybe try the National Trust’s walk around Aira Force and the Gowbarrow Trail. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 110 yards.

About the local area

Ullswater is the Lake District's second largest lake at nine miles long. Located in the eastern side of Cumbria, it bends and twists its way through dramatic mountain scenery on one side and a gently curving shoreline of green fields and woodland on the other.

Boating centres and marinas nestle unobtrusively on the lake edge, perfect for the water sports enthusiasts, or visitors can relax and enjoy the scenery from one of the steamers that have sailed the lake since 1855.

Many of the Lake District's many walks have their starting point from around Ullswater, including the renowned trek to Helvellyn's summit via Striding Edge. Or for the less energetic there are many low-level walks through beautiful countryside.

Of note is Glenridding which sits on the south western shore and is surrounded by the fells with wonderful scenic views. Pooley Bridge on the northern shore, with its 16th Century Bridge, Lakeland greystone houses and quaint teashops and Patterdale just to the south of Ullswater, cradled by mountains.
