The property

Sheiling Barn is withdrawing from the Lakelovers portfolio, existing bookings will be honoured. This fabulous barn conversion is found in the peaceful village of Finsthwaite, close to the southern shores of Lake Windermere. Laid out over 3 levels, Sheiling Barn is a wonderfully homely place for families or larger groups to escape from the everyday rush. Sociable dining will be a breeze in the chic country kitchen, designed to make holiday living that little bit easier. Enjoy the wonderful countryside views in the wrap-around conservatory, on the patio and in the gardens, where your only audience will be the grazing livestock. Stroll up the road to High Dam, and discover a lesser-known beauty spot reserved for those who know, or its only 1 mile to Lakeside and 2 miles to Newby Bridge and all their attractions. A perfect base for a cycling holiday with secure storage. On a rainy day, try your hand at table tennis or darts in the garage! == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 2 cars, plus garage with table tennis and darts, that also doubles as secure cycle storage . Entrance hall with polished wooden floor. White/pine kitchen with double oven and dining area. Useful storeroom plus cloakroom/WC. Upstairs to the first floor living room with 42" TV, Free View & WiFi, open fire and access to the scenic wrap-around conservatory. First floor access to a gravel patio with BBQ. First floor double bedroom with en-suite shower room. Upstairs to 3 further bedrooms, 1 double and 2 twins, all with washbasins. Luxury house bathroom with separate power shower. Location Lakeside is renowned as a peaceful Lake District holiday destination, nestled around the southern tip of Lake Windermere and away from the hustle bustle of the busier areas. But despite this, you'll find a wealth of things to see and do within easy reach - whatever your holiday tastes. Windermere Lake Cruises depart from Lakeside Pier, and ferry passengers the full length of Lake Windermere to Bowness and Ambleside - a wonderfully stress-free way to explore. You'll find plenty of walking routes in the area; including Alfred Wainwright's Finsthwaite Heights route from Newby Bridge (adjacent to Lakeside). Also at Lakeside are two popular Lake District family attractions - the Lakes Aquarium and the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway. Lake District historic sites such as Holker Hall and Gardens, Cartmel Priory, Stott Park Bobbin Mill, Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall are all within easy reach by car, with no need to navigate through busy tourist areas. To your north west, you'll approach Esthwaite Water and the landscapes that famously inspired the children's author Beatrix Potter. Her former home can be visited at Hill Top, in the small village of Near Sawrey. Only a mile or so further, and you'll reach Hawkshead village - a wonderful place to while away a day, exploring quaint cobbled streets and a blissfully car-free village centre.

About the location


Bowness-on-Windermere 8 miles.

The small village of Newby Bridge takes its name from the five arched stone bridge built in 1651 over the River Leven. The famous Furness Railway, one of Britain's oldest working standard gauge steam railways, runs between Haverthwaite and Newby Bridge. Visit the Lakeside Hotels and enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or enjoy the Aquarium of the Lakes, where the naturally themed habitats, bring the history of the Lakes vividly to life. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, plus the picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, and admire the views at nearby Gummer's How.
