Holiday home

Rusby Barn is a superb cottage to return to at the end of your busy day exploring the area.

Ousby is a small village surrounded by countryside in the Eden Valley. It has a pub called the Fox Inn, a campsite and a church called St Luke's Church. It is excellent for walking and cycling and is only a mile from the village of Melmerby which offers a wide green with a winding stream, a pub, a shop, a bakery and a church and is situated on C2C Cycle Route. The surrounding countryside is abundant with wildlife and is home to the native red squirrel and hares can be spotted easily, and the varied landscape is also a haven for birdwatchers, where curlews, oystercatchers and lapwings can be seen during the summer months.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
