This spacious Grade II listed Lakeland barn is a real find in the breathtaking Lyth Valley. The interior is an eclectic blend of handcrafted rustic features and contemporary furnishings, while the dramatic vaulted beams of the original building create an exceptional space for holiday living. Spread out and relax in the lounge, perhaps to watch a DVD, and dine together at the quirky woodcraft table.
There's loads of breathing space here. Don't forget your camera to capture the overwhelming views of the surrounding Lyth Valley - this is a true picture postcard setting with wonderful walks in every direction. Explore the surrounding lanes and byways, drop in at the plethora of traditional local pubs, or take day-trips to nearby Bowness, Lake Windermere and beyond.

This lovely self-catering cottage is located near the Lyth Valley village of Underbarrow. Underbarrow is a sleepy and attractive village, offering a peaceful contrast to the busier Lakeland towns and villages.
The Lyth Valley is a gorgeous rural area, scattered with traditional Lake District country cottages and farms. Wonderful traditional pubs with good food and great ales abound, including the Punchbowl at nearby Crosthwaite. The surrounding Lyth valley is well-known for its Damson harvests, and is decked in brightly coloured Damson blossom in spring. Blissful!
Great Walks start from your doorstep. You can choose from gentle strolls along winding paths and lanes to dramatic walks on Scout Scar and Whitbarrow Scar. The views across the Lakes and neighbouring counties from these bracing but manageable walks are stunning.
Underbarrow lies between Kendal and Bowness, and is very easily accessible from the M6. The popular tourist town of Bowness and the shores of Lake Windermere are only a short drive away. Bowness has a range of sophisticated shops, useful supermarkets and delis, plus a range of family attractions including those on the lake itself. For evening entertainment, you'll find the Royalty Cinema, Old Laundry Theatre, pubs and good restaurants.
