About the property

Barn in Ullock, Nr. Cockermouth, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Peaceful Location With Amazing Views

This converted barn is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, with fabulous views to both the front and rear of the property. It is within a 5 minutes drive of the Lake District national park. Cockermouth is a 10 min drive away where you will find a Sainsburys supermarket and other local shops and amenities. The family owned barn has been recently re-furnished and has a warm welcoming feel. We will accept up to 2 well behaved dogs. (we are unfortunately unable to provide Wi-fi due to lack of available equipment from BT)

About Morag Bamber

The Stevenson family have owned this barn for over 10 years. We previously used it as a family get away, now we want to share it with others. It has recently been re-furbished with a warm and welcoming feel.

Morag Bamber purchased this barn in 2004

Modern, clean and very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the cottage over Christmas. We were visiting with our 2 year old and 4 month old and the cottage had plates, cups and bowls that were suitable for them. The cottage was warm and cosy and had everything you could need to make your stay comfortable. It was very peaceful and the bedrooms were very cosy. Morag provided us with excellent directions so we found the cottage easily. Will certainly recommend this place to friends.

Hilltop Barn

  • 5 of 5

A lot of thought had gone into making this Barn conversation very cosy and comfortable, making it feel like home from home. The water was always hot. The kitchen was the best equipped we had ever seen in a rental cottage and very comfortable to eat in. It was to cold to use the conservatory but it made the lounge lighter and had a pleasant outlook. The view from our bed in a morning was exceptional. Overall the Barn was just what we wanted and in the right location for a visit to Workington, Whitehave, Cockermouth and Keswick.

Just lovely

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the lakes and this gorgeous and homely barn conversion was perfect. Recently refurbished with lovely finishing touches, it has everything you need. Morag communicated well with us on our journey there and we had some lovely champagne chocolates as a welcome gift. Thank you for letting us stay!
