In the heart of Matterdale in the Lake District National Park, this remarkable converted barn offers a large family or group of friends contemporary living, an abundance of space and breathtaking views. Situated only one mile from Aira Force Waterfall and a few miles from Ullswater, some would argue you have the best of the Lakes on your doorstep. Keen walkers will be spoiled for choice, whilst outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy mountain biking, climbing and kayaking nearby. Spend your evenings soaking up the tranquillity and watching the sun set.

Sympathetically renovated with contemporary guests in mind, this property capitalises on its surroundings with floor-to-ceiling windows and dual aspect rooms throughout. Whilst the lounge is cosy with a wood burner for colder evenings, the kitchen feels bright and airy with everything you’ll need to cook up some treats. Adjacent to this, the dining area has plenty of space for everyone and offers gorgeous views of the fells. A wet room and utility area complete the ground floor. Upstairs, there are three spacious bedrooms (two king-size and one bunk room), one en-suite bathroom and a family bathroom – all finished to an impeccable standard. Outside, there is a lovely patio area with a BBQ for al fresco dining.

Aira Force (1 mile) offers a range of woodland paths that allow you to appreciate the beauty and force of the waterfalls. A little further away is Ullswater (4 miles), where you can enjoy a picturesque trip on a steamer. For an action-packed day, head to Whinlatter Forest Park (17.5 miles) which has a range of activities for all ages/abilities, or for something more leisurely, take a stroll around the independent shops and eateries in Pooley Bridge, Keswick or Penrith (all within 12 miles).

Beautiful, remote location, perfect for being away from everything. Good running routes directly from the house- and same for walking. Luxurious, comfortable, well equipped house, absolutely wonderful for a relaxing break. Remember to take binoculars as owls, buzzards and red squirrels aplenty.

Our stay at the Hollows was wonderful, being able to do many walks direct from the cottage, the cottage itself was very comfortable with fantastic views from all rooms, an ideal place to stay.

Excellent holiday cottage, beautifully decorated and located, with fabulous views. The best welcome pack we have ever had. Great for a quiet, relaxing holiday away from crowds but close enough to get to the sights. A good location for walkers. Pretty much everything you need on hand and the maintenance team were more than helpful.

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
