Superb barn conversion located on the outskirts of the village of Ousby, close to the village of Melmerby in the stunning Eden Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Inside is an open plan but cosy sitting and dining area with a Kirkstone slate floor and underfloor heating powered by an air-source heat pump which keeps an ambient temperature.
The woodburner is perfect to cuddle in front of when the evenings are cooler after a day spent exploring.
Enjoy a coffee on the patio and take in the fell views with the Lake District in the distance or have a glass of wine while enjoying the sunset.
From the door you can walk to the pub in Ousby and Melmerby is approximately a mile away with a shop and bakery which is locally renowned.
The Eden Valley area offers lovely walks along riverbanks and country lanes shouldered by the fells.
For those wanting more of a challenge, Cross Fell is the highest and actually overlooks the barn and the long distance Pennine Way is also close by.
The Lake District is very accessible, only 25 minutes to Ullswater and Pooley Bridge where you can take the steam cruises along the lake or enjoy other water activities at Keswick which is just 35 minutes away.
The area also has an abundance of cycle routes for different levels of ability and energy!
