Converted Barn Just Off The Beaten Track To Windermere

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Dec-2016
Barn in Windermere, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Peaceful Location, 10 Minute Drive to Bowness/Windermere and within easy reach of pubs/restaurants

Outrun Nook Barn is a little bit special, tucked away down a meandering country lane with views of the fells, the setting is picturesque and peaceful, but despite its rural location the barn is only a 10 minute drive to Bowness/Windermere with many fabulous pubs and restaurants in the local vicinity. The barn really is a home away from home. The large living area has a very cosy feel and the open plan living makes it a relaxed and easy place to spend time with family and friends. There's plenty of room to catch up, watch TV, have a glass of wine or a cup of tea and stretch out after a long days walking.Originally a Westmoreland bank barn, the conversion makes the most of the high vaulted ceilings and original beams. The open plan living space is set out over two levels with a beautiful oak gallery framing the large open plan living area. Choose one of the large comfy sofas and relax in front of the wood burning stove or unwind on the patio overlooking the fells (blankets are provided as the temperature cools). Whatever your preference Outrun Nook allows you to escape and forget the outside world. But if you're tucked up in the warm as the sun goes down, you have Sky, Sky Sports and Sky Box Sets to entertain you. The kitchen is situated on the gallery level and is very much at the heart of things with a birds eye view of the lounge below and the dedicated reading area and desk opposite. It's been handmade specifically for the barn to ensure everything is to hand and of the highest quality. The traditional layout of the barn also provides some added privacy and some quiet space with a bedroom and bathroom on each floor. On the ground floor there's also a separate snug with a window seat overlooking the lane and fields, a sofa and TV. The gravelled garden is accessed through tall french doors with table and chairs on the patio so you can enjoy the views. You may be lucky and see the resident barn owl hunting over the field at dusk or just look up and be amazed by the stars as they shine in the absence of street lighting. For outdoor activities the barn is situated on the Dalesway trail and offers some excellent walking and cycling right from the doorstep plus Windermere golf club is just one mile down the road. THE BARN IS AVAILABLE FOR SHORT BREAKS PLEASE CONTACT THE OWNER FOR RATES AS THESE DO VARY.

About the Owner

Having holidayed in the Lakes for many years we made the decision to move to Windermere last year. After 24 years living in London we’ve returned home, to the North West to enjoy the walks, the food, the people and yes the weather too! The first time we saw Outrun Nook, tucked away and nestled amongst the fields, it had us hooked. And it hasn't disappointed, the views are beautiful, the walking is great and when there's a good pub at the end of it they're even better! The dogs now think we're just living in one big field and are bounding with joy. Yet despite the lovely feeling of remoteness here I know Bowness is just at the bottom of the road for when we fancy a latte or a good meal out. Living here we really are lucky enough to have the best of both worlds. This year we’ll be exploring the area and getting to grips with the country life but we already feel right at home.

Excellent location with 5 star accomadation!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this gorgeous barn in October, what an amazing location, far enough out to experience the peace and tranquility however not too far to access the many restaurants & attractions Windermere has to offer. The property offered a very relaxing stay after a days walking around the lakes. The photographs don't do this barn justice, we will definitely return next year.

Fabulous short break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 4 people and 2 dogs and were very impressed with the property. It sits in a lovely location of the beaten track. You can walk and cycle around for hours on the surrounding lanes.

The interior is lovely and very well presented. Definately will come back for another break.
