This luxuriously eclectic Lakeland barn conversion occupies a sublime setting adjacent to ‘The Eltermere Inn’ on the fringe of picturesque Elterwater in the heart of the Landgale Valley surrounded by the famous Langdale Pikes and with uninterrupted breathtaking views and seasonal views over the lake.
For a holiday with 'wow factor' - this is a special place and one to spend your precious time together soaking up Lakeland's luxuries. Step inside and take pleasure in the outstanding contemporary features echoed throughout, a secluded country Lake District atmosphere blends effortlessly with 21st century life but the views remain exactly the same walk out from the living rooms onto the raised slate terraces or admire from the chic bedrooms or every true picture window, here you can't help but fall in love with the setting, but take a breath as these unique views are simply to die for!
Leave aside the 'million dollar views and setting' for a moment and wander onto the beautiful terraces with patios and furniture, what a great place to unwind and enjoy al-fresco Lakeland life. Whether you are celebrating a happy event or just spending time with your favourite people, Eltermere Old Barn is a magical treat delivering sheer luxury and matching your high expectations. Enjoy the luxury chic bathrooms, sumptuous bedrooms, 21st century kitchen complete with Aga, known as the heart of any home, a dining area fit for any formal gathering complete with doors straight out onto raise terrace and the relaxing living space with warming woodburner, also opening onto the terrace, all wrapped up in sophisticated technology, are but a few things to mention.
The sleepy hamlet of Eltermere boasts the excellent Britannia Inn only a few minutes stroll away and The Langdale Spa with its fabulous facilities is also on your doorstep. Yet this gentrified old barn is adjacent to a sophisticated country inn, an absolute must for dinner, lunches or afternoon tea during your stay here but please book separately as we know it is in strong demand. Bustling Ambleside is but a five minute drive away and yet you will find this place hard to leave...
Accommodation in detail
Park right outside and climb a stone staircase passing one raised slated terrace through an open porch way into a dining hall; an elegant entrance and a great place to escape to away from everyone else...The living room gazes through a wall of glass with doors out onto the main slated terrace with views over the fells, this is a relaxing living space with sumptuous furnishings by the warming woodburner. The dining / kitchen is a reception room itself also with a wall of glass admiring the view and also with doors to the terrace. With a distinctive farmhouse look this is a gorgeous kitchen and has absolutely everything you may need including the beautiful Aga. Off the kitchen is a useful utility room and on the ground floor is a cloakroom / 4th WC / wash basin.
A staircase is at either end of this old barn so you chose which to go upstairs via but on the floor above the views get even better and here there are simply chic bedrooms; 2 king size, 1 double and 1 twin, each exquisite and each with stunning views over the lake and surrounding mountains. One king size has an en-suite with a lake view and in here is a free standing roll top bath, perfect for long soaks after a day on the fells. There is a large bathroom with double ended designer bath and separate power shower cubicle and there is another shower room too, so lots of bathrooms and pampering for all. We have to mention again the glorious terraces with furnishings overlooking the lake, we think you will agree this is a great place for morning coffee or lunch, afternoon tea and dinner - enjoy.
This enchanting holiday home in the Langdale Valley takes a scenic, peaceful location; whether you wish to walk the Langdale Pikes, photograph the spectacular Langdale Valley or simply escape from the madding crowds, you'll find a blissful and contemporary home from home here.
Elterwater village sits between Ambleside and Great Langdale. With so many gentle or challenging Lake District walks beginning from your door, you may never need to use your car. The small nearby Elterwater lake is a delight to behold, and can be reached via a path from the Britannia Inn - a quintessential Lake District pub serving great food and real local ale.
Only a short drive will take you to vibrant Ambleside village and the shores of Lake Windermere. There you'll find a sophisticated range of shops for stocking up the kitchen, acclaimed Lake District restaurants such as 'The Glass House' and Windermere Lake Cruises departing from Waterhead Pier providing a scenic route to Bowness and Lakeside!
Also nearby is Coniston water, the Lake District's third largest lake. There you'll find more opportunities for boating activities, perhaps discovering Peel Island - featured in Arthur Ransome's Swallows & Amazons as 'Wild Cat Island'.
