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.


Spacious, Comfortable Surroundings Make For A Truly Memorable Holiday

The front door entrance leads into a hallway here at The Barn with plenty of storage space for all your outdoor equipment. Bedroom 1 is a double, delightfully presented in a traditional, cottage style with an adjacent and equally pretty twin room, both sharing a bathroom with bath, walk-in shower, basin and WC.

Stairs to the first floor (or external access via patio doors) lead to the large open plan living space with seating arranged around the woodburning stove, the dining area position next to a window where you can look out over the village, the well-equipped kitchen offering everything you’ll need to properly self cater. Two further bedrooms sit on this floor, a further twin and a large double, the double having an en-suite shower room with cubicle, basin and WC. A second family bathroom has a bath with basin and WC and a useful utility houses a washer, dryer and further fridge/freezer.

Outside, there’s ample parking for up to 4 cars and garden furniture is provided within the enclosed, mature gardens.
