    The weather saturday up to and incl tuesday was pretty bad, storm Aiden I believe was the culprit. We had a lovely bright dry day on the wednesday . . . and then we had to come home, 2 days early due to the start of Englands 2nd lockdown ! However, Barn Roost was completely innocent in all this and we bear it no malice. It is a delightful, characterful cottage with links to the 18th centuries John Peel, he of the 'D'ye ken John Peel' fame. Set in the isolated hamlet of Ruthwaite a few miles from Bassenthwaite, the nearest shop(s) are in Wigton, 7 miles away. Barn Roost is lovely if you want a quiet, peaceful break. There is a conservatory at the rear, ideal for drying wet clothes and cleaning muddy boots in the large old fashioned stone sink. The heating is more than adequate and we never needed the log fire lit. The bathroom was small and 'functional' with just a heated towel rail and it could get a little damp and cold. All in all, we would happily return with the caveat that no storms are due !

About the location

IREBY

Bassenthwaite 5 miles; Keswick 12 miles.

Ireby nestles in the peaceful fells of the northern Lake District, in the beautiful area to the north of Keswick known as 'Back of Skiddaw'. Once a thriving market town, with the market cross believed to date back to 1200, Ireby is now a truly unspoilt, peaceful fell village. The peaks of Great Calva and Knott look down on the village and the nearby Aughertree Fell was the site of a Bronze Age farm and the remains of a pre-Roman road are still in evidence, a unique and most complete settlement from the Iron Age period. Nearby Bassenthwaite Lake itself, while boasting gentler scenery than others in the region, is still one of the most picturesque places in England. Places of interest nearby include Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the Lake with small open-air theatre (reputedly frequented by poets such as Tennyson and Wordsworth), Trotters Farm, and Dodd Wood. Most of the attractions of the Lake District are within easy reach and the quieter Northern Fells are almost on the doorstep. The nearby towns of Cockermouth and Keswick, both have weekly markets and offer a good range of amenities. The scenery of the Yorkshire Dales is within touring distance, as is the city of Carlisle and Hadrians Wall.
