The property

Cockermouth 3.6 miles. Nestled in the quaint village of Deanscales near Cockermouth in Cumbria is Swallow Barn. This beautiful, dog-friendly, stone-fronted holiday home benefits from a fantastic location on the edge of the breath-taking Lake District National Park, charming character features like exposed beams and a-frame, a spacious enclosed garden with lawn, decking and bike storage and three well-appointed bedrooms perfect for families or friends looking to explore the wonders of Cumbria. Cross the threshold and head up the stairs where a welcoming open-plan living space greets you; get acquainted with the fully-equipped kitchen where you can whip up delicious meals for the whole group. Dine together around the large dining table before pouring yourself a glass of wine and snuggling up in front of the gentle warmth of the woodburning stove and flick on the Smart TV for a much-needed movie night. When sleep calls, head downstairs to wash off the day in the sleek family bathroom ahead of catching your rest in the super-king-size with en-suite shower room, the king-size or the twin with zip/link, can be a double on request. For the evenings when you don’t fancy cooking, why not stroll over to the popular village pub, The Old Posting Station, where you can treat your loved ones to a delicious meal? If you can tear yourself away from the tranquillity, venture into the nearby market town of Cockermouth where you can stock up on essentials at a variety of stores or simply enjoy a well-earned break from the kitchen with a meal at pubs including Castle Bar or The Bitter End. While in the town be sure to immerse yourself in the past while admiring Cockermouth Castle, Cockermouth History Wall and the National Trust Site of Wordsworth House and Garden, which was once the home of the famed poet and now runs tours and educational displays. For a taste of the great outdoors, meander through the nearby Lake District National Park where you can explore famous lake towns including Keswick which boasts a museum, pencil museum and the theatre by the lake. There is also a plethora of walking, cycling, and hiking opportunities woven throughout the park offering guests spectacular views across the English countryside. Make memories at Swallow Barn.

About the location


Bassenthwaite Lake 7 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

The small country market town of Cockermouth is situated in the quiet north-western part of the Lake District, a largely undiscovered and unspoilt area, yet only 13 miles from Keswick. The town is famous as the birthplace of both William Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame) and Wordsworth’s Georgian family home, on the main street, is now a popular visitor attraction, owned by the National Trust. Cockermouth offers a good variety of shops, pubs and places to eat, but (of course) the main attraction of the area is the beautiful scenery and excellent walking in the northern lakes – Bassenthwaite Lake, Ennerdale Water and Derwent Water.
