The Woolloft dates back to the 17th century and is a superb conversion of a traditional Lakeland bank barn which was originally used to store fleeces. Retaining a wealth of character features plus many home comforts, cosy log burning stove, two feet thick cobblestone walls and two en-suite bedrooms ...a real ‘home from home’ with mountain views from every room.
Being a typical Lakeland barn, it nestles into the mountainside and enjoys a lower and upper ground floor.
Outside: Parking for one car is on hard standing next to the Woolloft where there is also a private sitting area, with Rattan cube set dining furniture and a BBQ. This enclosed area enjoys the last of the setting sun and has stunning views of Steel Fell, Helm Crag and beyond. Parking for a second car can be made available, if requested.
Upper Ground Floor - Full height glass doors open into a spacious characterful living room with fine oak beams, deep set windows and corner log burning stove. Furnished to a very high standard it has the benefit of a Samsung 55" LED Smart TV, Soundbar, which can also be used to play your own music via an App or Bluetooth, Samsung Blueray DVD player and WiFi throught the cottage. We have just added the new TV and Soundbar and consequently the current pictures show the old TV setup.
A spacious fully fitted well equiped dining kitchen with many useful extras including dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge freezer and microwave.
Stone stairs lead down to the bedrooms on the lower ground floor. A king sized double bedroom, with en-suite bath, bidet and wc, plus a twin or super king bedroom, with en-suite bath/shower over, basin and wc. Both bedrooms have TV's. Also off the hallway is a seperate shower room and a seperate wc with basin. There is sufficient room in the second bedroom for a cot or put-u-up bed for a 5th person if needed.
****The Woolloft is moving to a Saturday arrival day in 2018. However, 2017 bookings will remain a Friday arrival day. Unfortunately you will need to call if you would like to book a 2017 visit, as our system can't cope through this transition period....sorry :)****
