Description

Hallin Bank is a 17th century farmhouse set in 11 acres of its own land at the end of a private drive, overlooking the lovely valley of Martindale. The location, on the south slopes of Hallin Fell, is stunning. The same family has occupied Hallin Bank since 1905 and it is a treasured possession.

'The Fold' is an elegant barn conversion attached to the farmhouse but with independent access. It is furnished to a high standard and is full of character and charm. The bathroom with shower and washing machine and the kitchen-diner are newly refurbished. 'The Fold' sleeps 2 people, either singly or as a couple. The loft bedroom contains a 5 foot double bed, and a single bed. Downstairs the living room includes a log-burning stove, TV/DVD and comfortable furniture. Its French windows give directly on to the terrace and offer spectacular views down the valley. From the terrace there is access to the one-time orchard and stream below. Well behaved dogs are welcome (but please consult us

Well behaved dogs are welcome (but please consult us first) and you may walk anywhere in our fields and woodland. There are splendid walks in every direction and wildlife close at hand, including red squirrels, badgers, red deer and many types of bird. Lake Ullswater is 15 minutes' walk away and you can take the ferry from nearby Howtown to Glenridding at the head of the lake or to Pooleybridge at its foot. A perfect place for rest and relaxation, a base for walking in the north-eastern fells, or a romantic retreat. For further details and photographs check the individual website for Hallin Bank.

Location description from owner

The England region

The lovely valley of Martindale lies on the east side of Ullswater, second largest and perhaps most beautiful of the English lakes. It is an unspoilt place, reached by a mountain pass that ascends from Howtown, and preserved from through traffic, since there is no road on to Patterdale. It is quiet even in summer, though only 25 minutes from the M6 at Junction 40 and from the A66 at Penrith for those arriving from the east. Martindale wildlife includes red squirrels, badgers, hares, woodpeckers, herons, owls, falcons, and many kinds of smaller bird. One of the finest local walks, along the High Street ridge, may reward you with a sighting of red deer or even a golden eagle. The local herdwick sheep, a rare farm breed, are to be seen everywhere in the fields or on the open fell.There are walks both gentle and strenuous in every direction, along the valley floor and up the fells. You can hire rowing boats, canoes and kayaks at Pooley Bridge and Glenridding or enjoy a trip on one of the picturesque steamers that ply up and down the lake. There is also pony-trekking close by. For a day out, there are country houses, Hadrian's Wall, potteries, water-mills, and all the rest of the Lake District and Eden valley to visit.

Penrith

Penrith, 10 miles away, is our local town. There are convenient supermarkets on its edge, but the old-fashioned shops of the historic centre are also well worth exploring. (Don't fail to sample Penrith's famous fudge and toffee, exported to toffee-addicts the world over.) The village of Pooleybridge, 4 miles away at the foot of the lake, offers a Post Office/shop selling newspapers and basic goods. For eating out, Howtown Hotel, open March to October, has a friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices. Sharrow Bay Country House Hotel, in a beautiful position overlooking the lake, is open all year. It is famous for its cuisine (inevitably, this is reflected in its prices). There are several pubs at Pooleybridge, others in the nearby villages of Tirril, Askham and Dacre, and various restaurants in Penrith.
