Escape the rat race in this beautifully converted Lakeland barn. The Abbots Reading cottages are surrounded by lovely natural woodlands, and you are perfectly situated to explore the South Lakes. Full of rustic features, yet fully modernised, your barn will become your home while you stay with us here.
Deep in the Lake District countryside at the southern end of Lake Windermere, the rolling hills and valleys round about are ripe for exploration, and you will always have plenty to see and do before returning to the welcoming comfort of your barn.
Lakeside nearby has a steamer pier, allowing you to cruise England's longest lake and visit the bustling centres of Bowness and Ambleside to the north. There is a platform here, too, for the wonderful Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, which will draw you by vintage engines into the lush Levens Valley. Enticing Eateries and country inns are dotted about the green countryside.
Inside your cottage, oak beams suspended in a vaulted ceiling set the scene for country living, and the tasteful modernity of this barn conversion will assure you of a supremely restful break. The excellently arranged wooden kitchen is the perfect place to prepare meals with your party, and if you choose not to sit at the adjacent dining table you can take your foot outside on to the patio.
The deer and other wildlife that frequently visit Abbots Reading know that this is a perfectly peaceful haven in which to enjoy time away from the world. We know you will come away from your stay here satisfyingly refreshed and rejuvenated!
