    “Great location to explore the Lakes.”

    property was exactly as advertised, spotlessly clean well furnished everything that you could need. A previous reviewer commented on chipped crockery ,but this was literally the only thing one could comment on. It was otherwise perfect

The property

Rose Barn is a beautifully appointed barn conversion among a small number of cottages created from 200 year old former farm buildings about a mile from Hawkshead village. The property oozes style and character and the old combined with the new works effortlessly. There is plenty of walking to be done from the door, with country lanes to Wray, Tarn Hows and Grizedale Forest. Hawkshead itself offers a variety of places to eat and individual village shops for provisions, and the famous 'Drunken Duck Inn' is nearby to offer fine dining. Accommodation: Spacious entrance hall with luxurious underfloor heating - ideal for drying off your outdoor gear. On this level there are two bedrooms, one double and one twin (with TV), both beautifully styled with quality furnishings and co-ordinating fabrics. To serve these two bedrooms is a high quality contemporary shower room with power shower, wc and basin. On the first floor is the very well equipped kitchen with granite worktops and rear door leading on to the patio for outdoor dining. From the kitchen enter through a glass door to the attractive lounge/dining room with leather sofas, modern wall mounted gas fire (widescreen TV, DVD with a selection of DVDs, hi-fi and free wi-fi) and picturesque countryside views from the deep set windows. On the second floor is the master bedroom suite with a 5 foot king-size bed (TV), character vaulted ceiling and additional seating - ideal for a quiet read. Adjacent is the en-suite which has bath with shower over, basin and wc. The property is furnished and decorated to the highest standard with co-ordinating soft furnishings and flooring throughout, and great thought has been given to the holidaymaker's every need. Gas central heating and hot water on demand make Rose Barn the perfect place to stay in any season. Outside: Patio with garden seating. Two named parking spaces to the front of the property. Short walk to Outgate Inn. Hawkshead village centre approx 1 mile.

About the location


Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
