Cherry Tree Barn is a thoughtfully converted traditional Lakeland bank barn, just a short drive from the chocolate box village of Hawkshead.

There is also a handy utility room with laundry facilities, as well as being the perfect place for drying walking boots and coats.

Head to the first-floor to find the living areas; curl up in front the woodburner in the lounge, take in the valley views with Red Screes in the distance or utilise the fitted kitchen and prepare something delicious, to be enjoyed in the beautiful dining room over the large table.

The remaining bedrooms sit on the second-floor and a separated by a split staircase, offering a king-size and a twin, along with a shower room.

Cherry Tree Barn is surrounded by the working farm with beautiful views across the fields from the garden where there are the cherry trees that give the barn its name and a picnic bench to enjoy an evening drink or picnic lunch.

About the location


Bowness-on-Windermere 8 miles.

The picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Visitors can wander the wealth of tiny alleyways, thoroughfares, archways and courtyards between the whitewashed 17th century houses. There are many pleasant inns, teashops, guest houses and gift shops in the village, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which houses an annually changing exhibition of the famous author’s illustrations and stories. The other famous Hawkshead enthusiast, William Wordsworth, attended the Old Grammar School in 1779-87, which still stands today, and you can visit the building where the Lakeland poet developed his love of the form, and even see the desk into which he scratched his name as a small boy! Newby Bridge is ten miles away and offers attractions such as the Aquarium of the Lakes and Windermere Lake Cruises, sailing daily between Ambleside, Bowness and Lakeside. With stunning scenery and numerous attractions within easy touring distance, Hawkshead is in an ideal location at any time of the year.
