Magical Lakeland converted barns don't come better than this, occupying a sublime setting with simply breathtaking views in every direction towards Lake Windermere and the surrounding fells.

Words can't truly describe the magic of this setting high above the tiny hamlet of Rydal with panoramic views in all directions - here the mountains appear so close you can almost reach out and touch them. Step inside and see for yourself how the charm of a traditional Lakeland slate barn can blend so effortlessly with 21st century luxury accommodation. This is a place to relax, rejuvenate and spend precious time together. A short drive or beautiful walk will lead you into either the village of Ambleside or a little further passing Rydal Water into Grasmere. Grasmere itself is stocked with great eateries, tea rooms and shops and if you like picturesque high and low level walks, this is a walker's paradise. Enchanting 'Hart Head Barn' has all the ingredients to provide the perfect Lake District holiday, one you will only want to repeat and with a view you will never forget.

Accommodation in detail

Park right outside this magnificent barn and enter round the back where there is a beautiful patio garden (non-lawned) complete with furniture and a useful boot room with heater, perfect for drying wet coats and boots. Enter on the first floor with hallway and access into the superb living room, gaze at the wonderful view and relax in sumptuous furnishings by the warming open fire.

The stunning kitchen / dining area has all you would wish for and two sets of patio doors, one leading onto a viewing balcony to gaze towards the lake. On this level is a luxurious shower room and then downstairs to the three gorgeous bedrooms, one king size, with luxurious Villeroy & Boch en-suite together with french windows to a private couple's patio. There is a luxury Superking size bed in the second bedroom, which is a zip and link offering the option of twin beds. There is a twin bedroom and the third bathroom facility is also located on this floor.

Location

This secluded retreat is located in an enviable position next door to Rydal Mount, the home of William Wordsworth until his death in 1850. The poet's favourite viewpoint can be reached on the western end of nearby Rydal Water, and the tranquil surroundings are truly inspirational - not just to writers!

This is a superb property for walking from the door step and forgetting the car. The property is situated on the picturesque Rydal/Grasmere circuit walk and at the foot of the well known Fairfield Horseshoe. Mountain bikers and cyclists will envy this superb location as there are some of the best challenges in the British Isles on your doorstep.

The location is also only a short distance from the vibrant village of Ambleside. Here you'll find an interesting range of local shops, tempting delicatessens, traditional Lakeland pubs and top-class restaurants - even a cinema and live music bar. Lake Windermere can also be enjoyed from Waterhead Pier, where ferries depart regularly to Bowness and Lakeside.

The Cumbria region

The Lake District is a place like no other. No other region in the world is so packed with such varied and stunning scenery in such as small area– and it's all on your doorstep with easy access by car or rail. The choice of outdoor activities is endless with some of the best walks, climbs and bike rides in the world, beautiful lakes for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing or just a cruise one of several ferry services. The National Park itself encompasses soaring mountains, native woodland (you might see a red squirrel!), lush meadows and of course the many famous lakes themselves. Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, Ruskin and many more have been inspired by the Lake District and made their homes here. The homes are still here and open to visit and they too are surrounded by majestic mountain panoramas. There also some surprises – kids will love attractions such as the giant i-max screen at Rheged Visitor Centre, Go Ape aerial activities in Grizedale Forest and The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness. And where better to stay than a classic Lakeland Cottage. Lakelovers have over 400 properties in prime locations within the heart of the Lakes and we specialise in hand-picked properties that we know you'll love. Whether you want a grand property for a family gathering or a cosy bolt hole for two we can't wait to show you what we have for you to choose from. We know The Lakes inside out and we are just a click of a mouse or a phone call away.
