Ghyll Bank Barn description

Holiday home
Ghyll Bank Barn is a delightful holiday home near Staveley in the Lake District National Park. The cottage is set in the centre of a barn conversion, with two bedrooms; a double and a twin. There is a modern shower room, and a kitchen with a dining area leading down four steps to a bright sitting room with beams and a door onto the patio. The patio has furniture and amazing views, while parking is also available off the road. With walks nearby, and the lakeside town of Windermere a 10-minute drive away, Ghyll Bank Barn is the perfect Lake District retreat!

Just five miles from the famous town of Windemere, Staveley is truly in the heart of the Lakelands. This charming village is just a stone's throw from the borders of the Lake District National Park and offers wonderful and scenic opportunities for walkers, cyclists and nature enthusiasts. The village itself is well-served by a number of shops, a trio of pubs and a railway station, offering relaxing rides through the surrounding countryside. Nearby attractions include the famous Lake Windemere, where you can soak up the spectacular panorama from a boat or take a ferry trip to the Lakeside Aquarium or the Grizedale Forest Park. Ambleside, the centre of English mountaineering, is also close by offering visitors the chance to go climbing.

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.

This is a lovely terraced barn conversion in an excellent location. The view was really good and the outside space was perfect. We loved it and would recommend and we would return.

It couldn't have been any better. The property was beautiful with top quality fixtures and fittings and really felt homely. The location is superb and the owners were lovely too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will be rebooking this property again.

A beautifully presented property inside and outside. The scenery and views are stunning and very relaxing. The property is stunning and the location is an excellent base to visit all areas of the Lake District. It's approximately 1.8 miles and a thirty minute walk to the village of Staveley. I would definitely visit again.

Having got our food supplies from Morrisons at in Kendal, we arrived at the barn. We had booked the Brye which sleeps 7 and we got more than expected (the photos on the web do not do the accommodation justice). On the ground floor a spacious entrance, kitchen (all amenities) and lounge with one double bedroom with on-suite(shower). The first floor has two further bedrooms on twin plus on-suite (shower) and one family room, double and a single bed plus on-suite (bath/shower). The barn is located 1.5 mile from Staveley and is about 30 mins from Wndermere, 20 mins from Kendal. As a family we found it a great base for walking and travelling around the area. A great find and we will be back
