A 200 Year Old Cumbrian Sandstone Barn Conversion In An Idyllic Central Location - Stable Cottage



Updated: 17-Oct-2016
Barns in Wigton, Nr. Carlisle, Cumbria, England

A Cumbrian sandstone barn conversion, ideally situated on a working beef and sheep farm on the fringes of the Lake District National Park. Its tranquil rural location provides a relaxing getaway while being centrally based for exploring the Lake District, the Solway Coast, Hadrian's Wall and the border with Scotland. We offer spectacular views over the Cumbrian countryside towards Skiddaw and the Lakeland Fells while the immediate surroundings provide the opportunity to meander along the course of the Little Waver river discovering a host of wildlife including badgers,deer and foxes or enjoy the rich variety of birds and wild flowers. After a day spent exploring in the Cumbrian countryside return to our cottage to enjoy the warmth of the wood burning stove, our home grown vegetables straight from the field and spacious well equipped accommodation. The Stackyard holiday cottages are ideal for busy families and couples alike. Our outdoor areas and farm location make the cottages relaxing and fun to be around.

About the Owner

My husband and I and our young son live on the family farm with our two sheepdogs Ben and Jess, our three cats; Tabby, Tom and Harry, a flock of 300 sheep and their lambs and 150 beef cattle. We grow vegetables which we sell directly from the farm and look forward to welcoming guests to our three 200 year old barn conversion holiday cottages.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was secluded and cosy. It was so nice and warm and the conversion is so modern and amazing.

We were able to drive to all the places we wanted to go to.

The owners were very lovely but also let us just get on with it.
