Beautiful 17th Century Barn Conversion Perched Above The Village of Coniston
The Barn is an impressive, period barn conversion set in a superb location above Coniston, one of Lakeland’s few remaining true villages. The footpath to Coniston Old Man passes the end of the lane and lovely views can be enjoyed from the front of the house out over the village below. The Barn offers spacious accommodation and is delightfully presented with comfortable furnishings married perfectly with exposed trusses, beams and soft, muted shades throughout. The open plan living space on the first floor, featuring a statement wood burning stove, is a superb social area where everyone can gather to share precious time together.
Coniston village is a short stroll downhill where you’ll find a fine selection of traditional pubs, most of which serve food throughout the day and into the evening along with a superbly stocked Co-op supermarket where you’ll find everything you need to cook up a heart family brunch or supper. The famous Ruskin Museum is well worth a visit as is Ruskin’s former home, Brantwood on the East side of the Lake. No visit to Coniston would be complete without a trip on Steam Yacht Gondola whilst soaking up the stunning views from the water, the setting for Swallows and Amazons and tragically, the scene for Donald Campbell’s ill-fated world record water speed attempt.
