A delightfully rustic barn conversion in the green and peaceful Lyth Valley!
Durham Bridge Barn is a stone-built haven for four people with outstanding character and genuine homely comfort. Real oak beams, vaulted ceilings, and the unbeatable feeling of living in an authentic Lakeland barn make this a premium choice of holiday home.
A real sense of country cottage living and rural peace can be found at Durham Bridge Barn and what better complement to that than supping an ale by a roaring tavern fire or eating out in a cosy country inn. A well-regarded gastro-pub, The Punchbowl Inn, is to be found at nearby Crosthwaite, and the Lyth Valley Hotel has a great bar just a few minutes from your door in which you can recharge your batteries.
This is damson country and you should look out for the homemade jams and preserves that appear locally in season. The countryside here is rolling and pleasant, full of pastel fields and little lanes bordered by hedgerows of hawthorn and bramble. There are so many pathways and rambling routes to be explored from Durham Bridge Barn, and it is also an excellent location for cycling.
You are very close to Bowness-on-Windermere, too, and all the attractions of one of Lakeland's most vibrant villages, including a wealth of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops, and not far off is the foodies paradise of Cartmel. And your country barn is just the place to return to and fully relax after a long day out.
The supremely restful king-size bedrooms, luxurious en-suite bathrooms and characterful living areas, with a lovely traditional log effect gas fire, will ensure you are refreshed for each new adventure, and that you can spend precious time here together in absolute comfort.
