This lovely little barn conversion in the Lyth Valley is a rare treat for its location; nestled within the grounds of a traditional Lakeland farm but only a short drive away from Bowness and Lake Windermere. Beautifully converted to provide relaxed and open plan living space, Fell Side Barn retains the character of the original building.
The cosy living area and double bedroom take the top floor, with a delightful en-suite twin bedroom residing on the floor below overlooking the farm courtyard. A treat for younger guests, or an opportunity for two couples to keep their own space. Fell Side Farm itself provides 54 acres of Lakeland countryside to explore without even using the car. The surrounding Lyth Valley is famed for its stunning walking territory, and is home to several excellent country pubs - one of which is only a short stroll away.
