Holiday Rental House
One of the finest holiday homes in the Lake District with a Visit England 5 Star Gold Award. A perfect location for family holidays, with easy access to many attractions, yet is off the tourist trail offering true peace and seclusion. Half a mile from the shores of Lake Ullswater, you will have plenty of fun in, on and by it, with walks onto high fell and mountain. The most wonderful house to come home to after your days explorations, to relax and unwind. Set in large grounds, your first impression will be of the sheer size of this former Lakeland Barn. Renovated from a working barn into a family home by the owners, the property offers stylish interiors with a contemporary theme and far eastern influences. Spacious outdoor areas for entertaining and admiring the views of Lake Ullswat...One of the finest holiday homes in the Lake District with a Visit England 5 Star Gold Award.
