The Haybarn

Featured in Country Living Magazine, this cottage has a large sit in fireplace with a woodburning stove to back up the central heating.

The Haybarn, is part of Kirkland Hall Cottages, four unique cottages nestling at the foot of Cross Fell with panoramic views across the lush Eden Valley to the Lake District Fells beyond. The entrance hall leads to the open plan living room, which has a sit in inglenook fireplace with a large wood-burning stove. Stone steps lead you to the raised conservatory with double doors opening onto a patio and the extensive wildlife gardens beyond. Back into the living room and the dining area and the well-equipped farmhouse kitchen. A double staircase leads to a minstrels gallery with a day bed that can be used for a 7th person. There is a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, 2 twin bedded rooms and a family bathroom. We can supply cots for 2 babies. The Haybarn is the perfect base for walking, cycling, touring or just relaxing by a log fire.

About the property

Kirkland Hall Cottages

Our self catering cottages have featured in Country Living Magazine's 'Great Escapes'. They are comfortable, well furnished and are maintained to the highest standards by the resident owners.

Each cottage was created from a range of ancient stone barns, a project which was voted 'the best barn conversion in the North of England'. All cottages have large wood burning stoves as well as gas central heating for that cosy night in by the fire.

The large informal gardens and pastures surrounding our holiday cottages are a haven for rabbits, badgers and red squirrels. They are host to dozens of species of migrant and resident birds including woodpeckers, tree creepers and nuthatches, whilst the Fells above us are home to skylarks, curlews, buzzards and peregrine falcons.

Beautiful cottage, warm and welcoming, lovely views. Stunning area, perfect for walks, lots to see and do.

The owners are very helpful. They are situated next door, so anything you need you only have to ask.

Very comfortable with all the amenities you will need for a lovely family holiday.

Charming cottage in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was smooth from booking to arrival to going home. Cottage was just as the photographs - very comfortable. Beautiful gardens to enjoy and even a red squirrel or two to watch.

Highly recommend the cottage and its location. Good pub in the next village (5miles or do) for dinner for lunch or dinner.

Already considering a return visit 🙂🙂

Beck Cottage, Kirkland Hall, Penrith

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Beck Cottage, a delightful one bedroom cottage in Kirkland, near Penrith, Cumbria. Everything was supplied and we were looked after extremely well. We will be happy to return to this cottage when we come back to the UK.

Entpannung pur

Wer die Ruhe mag oder braucht ist hier genau richtig, denn nach dem Cottage gibt es nur noch Berge und Schafe. Das Ambiente ist rustikal liebevoll eingerichtet.

The Lake District Fells and panoramic views of the Eden Valley are the backdrop to our exclusive self catering holiday cottages. The cottages nestle in an area designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' the foothills of the North Pennines, home to some of the rarest plants and wildlife in Britain.

Cumbria and the Lake District is renowned for it's wild and stunning landscapes. There are beautiful lakes like Ullswater, Buttermere and Coniston to the south, with the lush Eden Valley and the rolling North Pennines as its eastern boundary.

A network of footpaths starts right outside your holiday cottage door. You can wander just 100 yds up the track to experience the tranquillity and freedom of the open Cumbrian fells (hills). The more energetic can make for the top of Cross Fell for spectacular views of the Eden Valley and the Lake District fells.

If you want to get away from it all, explore some amazing landscapes, do a few walks, visit some traditional pubs or just relax in front of an open fire, our cottages are just what you need.

The cottages are the perfect base for walkers, cyclists and motorists, exploring not only Cumbria and the Lake District National Park, but also the Yorkshire Dales, Northumbria, County Durham and the Scottish Borders.
