  • “Lovely clean cottage, Jayne really welcoming and helpful but as open water swimmers it would have been really helpful to have a washing machine and/or somewhere to dry wet stuff.”

    Jayne really kindly did a couple of washes for us but may be something to bear in mind as am sure we won’t be the last people to come to the Lakes to swim.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed by the lack of a washing machine at the property, however this is not an advertised amenity at The Barn, and we did our best to assist you with your laundry, under the circumstances. - Sykes owner relations

About the location


Maryport 6 miles; Cockermouth 7.7 miles; Bassenthwaite Lake 23 miles.

Workington is an ancient market and port town on the west coast of Cumbria, based at mouth of the River Derwent. The town has a selection of shops, bars and two theatres, as well as five churches and history dating back to Roman times, with forts positioned on the coast as coastal defences. Curwen Hall is a striking ruin, which was originally built around a pele tower that dates back to the 14th century and was used to shelter Mary Queen of Scots on her last flight to Scotland before her execution. In more recent time, Workington was known for the production of high quality iron ore and mining, and the town’s industrial history can be learnt at the maritime museum based on the cliffs in nearby Whithaven. The western side of the Lake District National Park can be reached in less than half an hour’s drive, to the west is the Solway Firth and its designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and to the east are the Lakeland Hills. A wonderful base for exploring the Cumbrian coastline.
