|Description:||This imaginatively converted barn retains many original features. Very well equipped and furnished to a high standard with old pine furniture and country fabrics, Swallow Barn provides a relaxed and comfortable holiday or short stay.
Swallow Barn is in a peaceful, rural setting, with sweeping views to the Langdale Fells and the Kent estuary. The house is ideally located between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks, offering easy access in either direction. While it is close to major routes, the Barn rests among rolling hills, which protect it in a calm and tranquil environment.
Built against a south-facing hillside, the barn takes an 'upside-down' layout and features a large, galleried living room on the upper floor, with wood-burning stove, adjoining dining area, French doors leading to a decked patio with garden furniture and the grassed garden area, a spacious kitchen with breakfast bar and fully-fitted appliances, a small inner hall leading to a double bedroom with adjacent shower room. A further 3 bedrooms are on the lower floor, a double with en suite shower room and 2 twin bedrooms and family bathroom with over-bath shower.
Swallow Barn is close to the picturesque market towns of Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale. Windermere at the heart of the southern lakes is within 30 minutes by car. There are walks around the area and many places of interest such as Arnside with its tidal estuary and walk across Morecambe Bay sand and Leighton Moss Nature Reserve. Ingleton with its caves and waterfalls is nearby as are the famous 3 peaks of Ingleborough, Pen y Ghent and Whernside. The Lancaster canal is close by where barge rides can sometimes be taken and the towpath can be followed to Kendal. The Westmorland showground is located alongside the canal.|
