  • “The listing didn’t actually do the building justice.”

    It is so much bigger and more comfortable than we expected.

    It is so much bigger and more comfortable than we expected. The building mixes a combination of old barn with new technology and everything is finished to a very high standard. We have always recommend to others and would definitely stay here again

The property

The Byre is a wonderful converted barn located on the outskirts of Allithwaite and only a couple of miles from Cartmel, which is home to the famous L'Enclume restaurant.

This stone-built cottage has been furnished to an exceptional standard to create the perfect base for a cottage holiday with the Lake District National Park very close by.

Inside The Byre is a wonderful open plan living area with plenty of seating and a warming woodburning stoves to create the homely atmosphere that you will need after a long day exploring the area.

The kitchen area has all of the equipment that you will need during your stay, including a washer/dryer and a dishwasher, along with views across to the nearby countryside.

All of the bedrooms are immaculately finished with lovely bed linen, two come with zip/link beds which can be super king-size or two single beds, and one has a superb en-suite shower room.

The family bathroom is classy and contemporary with separate shower, and The Byre benefits from a cosy snug area on the first floor with comfortable seating.

Outside there's the added luxury of a brilliant outdoor area with patio seating and a hot tub for you to sit and relax in after a fun-filled day exploring the area.

Allithwaite is a charming village offering the basic amenities and good access to the Lake District and all that it has to offer.

A superb cottage in a great location for a holiday with family and friends.
