Set in the east of the Lake District National Park, this beautiful Barn is the perfect home away from home. The spacious property is located in the small conservation village of Helton, just over a mile from Askham with its shop, two pubs, heated outdoor swimming pool and the Michelin starred restaurant at Askham Hall. There are numerous walks and cycle tracks to enjoy from right outside the door, with Ullswater 3.5 miles away by foot where a day can be spent on the water either hiring a kayak or enjoying the picturesque surroundings on a gentle cruise on one of the Ullswater Steamers. Haweswater is also close by (4.5 miles), as are excellent high-level walking routes at High Street (8 miles) and Helvellyn (13 miles). Nearby attractions include Lowther Castle and Gardens, Aira Force and Dalemain House (all within 12 miles).

The property, with its attractive sandstone exterior, offers an abundance of space. The lounge/dining area is the hub of the house with a wood burner in each, beamed ceilings and open views across the Lowther Valley. Curl up in the lounge on one of two four-seater sofas, in front of the wood burner and Smart TV - perfect for a family movie night. A large oak table and chairs to seat eight dominates the dining room with a second wood burner and a door out to the patio. A traditional kitchen houses an electric oven, gas hob, microwave and fridge/freezer. Adjacent is the utility room with a washing machine, dishwasher and WC plus plenty of hanging space for coats and muddy boots after a day’s walking. The master bedroom with king-size bed and built-in units is on the ground floor as is the bathroom with shower, freestanding bath and WC. Up on the first floor are three bright bedrooms - one with a king-size bed and fitted units, a twin room, and a single room. Another shower room with shower and WC is on this floor. Many rooms in the accommodation require a couple of steps up or steps down.

Stunning views can be enjoyed from the south-facing enclosed garden. There are lawned areas for the kids and your four-legged friend to enjoy. The patio with sofa dining set offers a beautiful spot to sit back, relax and enjoy the views with a coffee or glass of wine. There is parking directly outside for four cars.

A great cottage, well-equipped and good for pets. Enclosed garden for dogs. Great information about lots of local walking and days out. The Askham Lido is a must, if you get good weather! Half an hour drive to the mountains, but only 15mins to Pooley Bridge and the Ullswater Steamer. Stunning lake for walking round, eating beside or hiring some forRead morem of boat/board for use on the lake. Beautiful river below the house to walk beside or swim in. Lots of good local pubs to enjoy. A very happy stay! Hide

I booked this cottage for 6 adults, 1 child, 1 infant and a small dog for us to celebrate my birthday. We were all impressed with it. Clean, comfortable and a great place to return to and relax after a couple of rainy outings. The rain meant we couldnt make full use of the beautiful garden or the outdoor swimming pool in nearby Askham. The locationRead more was good for the Ullswater Steamer (my treat), being only 10 minutes away. Nice walks from the doorstep. Two good pubs in Askham, best to book. Hide

Our party comprised of two families - 4 adults, 3 teenagers and a dog! The barn is spacious, in a great private location with lovely outdoor space. The accommodation is very well equipped and to a high quality. We had everything we needed to cook and bake (a wet day). Lots of nearby activities including walks and bike tracks on the doorstop. The owRead moreners also provided copious information about activities, walks and eating out in the area. We had a fantastic break, thank you. Hide

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.
