Description from owner

Description

Newly converted from an old stable and hay loft this three bedroomed barn is bursting with character and interest, yet very light and spacious. Upstairs is a super open plan living area with lots of wonderful beams and a huge wood burner stove. Toddles Barn is tucked away in the corner of the traditional farming village of Skelton nestling in the Cumbrian countryside close to the Lake District including Ullswater and the market town of Penrith and being only 10 mins from the M6 you are soon transported to this wonderful rural retreat.

Due to the nature of the property the upstairs living space may be a bit tricky for "Giants" but fine for most of us - plasters can be provided !! We have tried to work the room layout around the beams to hopefully make it all as accessible as possible to everyone but want guests to be aware of this wonderful feature.

The bedrooms are all on the ground floor with 2 large rooms with king size beds, these rooms also have hairdryers

We have tried to work the room layout around the beams to hopefully make it all as accessible as possible to everyone but want guests to be aware of this wonderful feature.

The bedrooms are all on the ground floor with 2 large rooms with king size beds, these rooms also have hairdryers and a television each. All bedding and towels are provided for each person staying. The twin bed room has a bed which can be made into a super king size but is not as large a room as the other 2. One of the double rooms has an ensuite shower room attached.

There is a full size roll top bath in the main bathroom as well as a full shower unit.

In the kitchen upstairs we have provided everything that you will need for your stay, all washing up liquid, tea towels, oven glove, dishwasher tablets are provided as well as plenty of crockery, glasses and all utensils you will need. We also have provided a few useful extra's including a slow cooker and toastie maker. There is tea, coffee, sugar and a small milk for your arrival and if required a food box can be ordered from us for your arrival great for weekends.

There are games, books and DVD's to enjoy and we provide wood for the fire.

There are some great easy walks from the barn door and the school playground can be used out of school hours and holiday's and weekends.

There is also a play area at the far edge of the village ideal to burn some energy.

We have tried to provide a homely, relaxing place to stay and all you need to do is work out what to do or not as the case may be !

Having holidayed our selves with family we have tried to provide the ultimate escape away at a very reasonable price and with everything you will need.

The barn is somewhere special and unique and a real chance to stay somewhere to relax and enjoy amazing character and is so handy to the lakes.

Location description from owner

The England region

Toddles Barn is tucked away in a quiet corner of this traditional Cumbrian village. The barn was originally a stable and hay loft which we have tried to sympathetically convert to a modern, light and airy relaxing place to stay. To try and retain as much of the character means the property is upside down to maximise all the wonderful beams that are exposed in the upstairs living space. There are 2 large fresh and spacious double bedrooms one with an en-suite shower room and on smaller twin bedded room. The entrance to the property is situated next to our home so making it easy for guests to pop round with any queries or directions required.

In summer the neighbouring cows can be seen ambling to the fields opposite the property.

Penrith

Toddles Barn is an ideal base for visiting the many beautiful lakes and mountains in the nearby area. We are only 5 miles from the M6 motorway so making it quick and easy to find us and yet so near to so many local historic properties, visitor attractions and the local market town of Penrith.

Ullswater Lake is 15 minutes away and only 30 minutes drive will bring you to Keswick.

There are many lovely villages in the surrounding area including Caldbeck village and fantastic surrounding fells are only 10 minutes drive away.

There is so much for all ages to discover in this unspoilt part of the Cumbrian countryside.

“Beautiful Barn Conversion”

Reviewed 18 Feb 2017

Wanted somewhere close to Penrith, wonderful place to stay, all home comforts catered for, Joanne was so friendly and helpful

Thank you so much for taking the time to place this review. It is so helpful for people looking at our barn to see other visitors thoughts. Pleasure having you stay.

“Toddles barn....Penrith”

Reviewed 26 Dec 2016

A truly fabulous cottage with everything you could possibly need. The owners had even put up Christmas decorations. Very cosy & very tastefully done leaving some of the original features in....would have loved to stay longer & will definitely stay there again. Feels like you found a special secret.

Thankyou so much for taking the time to post this great review. It really is helpful for future guests to read and decide if it is for them. We thought it especially important to decorate for Christmas and it is all these little things I feel make the difference and somewhere special. Lovely to meet you all and hope you enjoy the rest of your time in the UK. Joanne

“Absolutely Amazing Accommodation”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2016

Toddles Barn is an outstanding property finished to a very high standard. Attention to detail is second to none and it was spotlessly clean. The open plan living accommodation/dining/kitchen on the first floor with the beautiful beams is amazing and the log burner is the finishing touch. The bedrooms are also fantastic, as are the bathroom and en suite. Cannot fault anything. Everything you could need has been provided and the extra touches are so thoughtful. A truly wonderful place to stay in such a peaceful tranquil location with amazing views. We had booked Toddles Barn as a surprise for my husband's 60th birthday and Joanne, the owner, had left a card and cake for him. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

I am so delighted you took time to post this review as it it means so much that people are enjoying the type of property we have created. Reviews are the best recommendation for future guests and even though you may have bumped your head on those fab beams you still had a wonderful time. Thank you so much and lets hope everyone else enjoys Toddles Barn in 2017. Joanne
