    “Holemire barn is an idyllic little holiday getaway.”

    It provides an absolutely beautiful base location to explore the lakes and I would recommend it to anyone. We absolutely loved it.

With a homely interior and a wealth of opportunity on the doorstep, this is a romantic retreat ideal for couples to get away. Access to the property is through a colourful and floral courtyard, setting a lovely theme instantly. Step in and stumble upon the slick modern bathroom, tiled in black, contrasting with the white fittings. The king-size bedroom also rests on ground level, complete in a smart fashion with French doors leading out onto the calming courtyard. Your relaxing downtime will be spent in the open-plan living room, nestled under the beamed and vaulted ceiling on the first floor. This alluring area is bursting with style, providing a perfect spot to let your hair down when you're not out exploring this beautiful location. To the back of Holemire Barn rests a peaceful garden. Take a seat on the courtyard and watch the varying wildlife go about their day throughout the trees. The useful village shop rests within walking distance, as does the first-class Wheatsheaf Inn, serving fine ales and delicious food. Avid walkers will be spoilt for choice, with many paths and trails, as well as the Whinlatter Forest Park right on your doorstep. This provides fun for all the family. As well as the wonders of the Lakes, the coast of North West England is also easy to reach. Amble throughout the charming streets of Cockermouth for a more relaxed day trip. Holemire Barn is a heart-warming holiday home for couples looking to escape everyday life.

About the location


Braithwaite 4.3 miles; Cockermouth 6 miles; Keswick 7 miles.

Lorton is a village in the district of Allerdale, in Cumbria and is made up of two small villages – Low Lorton and High Lorton, both of which are nestled at the northern end of the Vale of Lorton. Surrounded by the mountains such as Grasmoor, Hopegill Head and Whiteside it is a perfect destination for exploring a number of hillwalks and visitors are encouraged to visit the 12th century St. Cuthbert’s church. Lorton itself is relatively untouched by tourism and yet is only approximately 4 miles away from Cockermouth, which offers access to the A66 road. Other nearby settlements include Loweswater and Brigham. The Whinlatter Pass road offers a scenic drive and connects Lorton with Braithwaite. Within an easy drive the nearby town of Cockermouth has plenty of places to eat and drink and is of course 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. A great location whatever you choose to do.
