The Cumbria/Lake District

Swallow Barn is close to the boundary of the Lake District National Park. This is fabulously scenic area, and worth a visit at any time of year. All land above 3000 feet in England, and the highest mountain and the deepest & longest lakes in England lie within this National Park. The area is also associated with poet William Wordsworth and children's author & illustrator, Beatrix Potter.

The western extent of the Yorkshire Dales National Park are equally accessible from Swallow Barn. This area features pretty market towns and villages and features rolling upland pastures and heather moorland with limestone crags, and contain the " Yorkshire Three Peaks" of Ingleborough (723 metres), Pen y Ghent (691 metres) and Whernside (728 metres).

To the South of Swallow Barn, and easily accessible, is the less well known Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, consisting of beautiful gritstone fells, deep valleys and peat moorland, famous for grouse shooting.

Lastly Morecambe Bay, which is just visible from Swallow Barn, is an important wildlife site, with varied marine habitats and renowned for its abundant bird life. The bay has rich cockle beds, which have been fished by locals for generations.

The whole region is thus a paradise for walkers, cyclists, water sports enthusiasts, cavers and birdwatchers.


Swallow Barn is close to the picturesque market towns of Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale. Windermere, at the heart of the southern lakes, is within 30 minutes by car. There are walks around the area and many places of interest such as Arnside with its tidal estuary and organised low-tide walks across Morecambe Bay sands. Leighton Moss Nature Reserve and Ingleton with its caves and waterfalls are both nearby, as are the famous "Three Peaks" of Ingleborough, Pen y Ghent and Whernside, with their associated '12 hour challenge'.

The Westmoorland Showground is approximately 3 miles away and is the location for the annual Westmoorland County Annual Show.The Lancaster Canal is close by, where barge rides can sometimes be taken. The towpath can be followed to Kendal.

The nearest village is approximately a mile away is Endmoor, which boasts a pub, village store and fabulous bakery!

"Great for a large group, in a beautiful quiet setting"

Easy to find from the m6. Great location with stunning views. Spotlessly clean, furnished and decorated to a good standard. All the kitchen facilities you would expect at home, plenty of crockery and… More
