These two delightful cottages stand high on the fellside adjacent to the Cumbrian Way, with superb views across the valley to the hills around Ullswater. Converted from traditional stone barns overlooking a cobbled courtyard, they are attractive and comfortable and make a wonderful holiday base. Experience Lakeland at its best, with every kind of outdoor activity on hand. Bank House Barns are a haven away from the stresses and strains of everyday living and ideal for anyone looking to spend some time amidst the peace and quiet of beautiful scenery. Walk straight out on to the fells from your cottage door, or go pony trekking and see the sights from a different angle (book at nearby Rookin House). Enjoy boating and sailing on Ullswater or take in the magnificent scenery on a launch trip up the lake. A region which offers something for everyone, whichever season you choose to visit – in the winter months, why not join the Lake District ski club and ski on Raise. For enjoyable days out, there are plenty of places to visit, including Aira Force waterfall, Wetheriggs Pottery Museum and Penrith Castle. Also in the area surrounding Penrith is the wonderful Rheged Discovery Centre, Lowther Leisure and Wildlife Park, Dalemain Historic House and Gardens and beautiful Hutton in the Forest. The lakes and fells to the south are easily reached or go north to the charming villages and historic sites in the Borders, a trip to fascinating Hadrian’s Wall is a must. Pub and restaurant 2½ miles.
Lowther (ref NP2801) and Eamont (ref NP2802) can be booked together to accommodate up to 8 guests.
