Holiday Rental House
Bower Bank EcoBarn is situated amidst the outstanding natural beauty in the sleepy hamlet of Gawthrop, just one mile from Dent. The barn has been converted into a stunning home accommodating up to 10 people. It is beautifully presented with internal stone features and beamed ceilings, eco-friendly thanks to the ground source heat pump, which provides the heating and hot water. Rainwater is diverted into underground tanks and used for flushing the toilets in all 4 EcoBarn WC's. Sheep's wool has been used to insulate the building. There is a terrace to the front of the building, to the rear a paved area and barbeque and your very own woodland garden where there is an abundance of wildlife ranging from kestrels to rabbits and wandering red deer if you rise early enough.
