Backbarrow 1.5 miles.
A magnificent detached stone cottage with a hot tub, situated within 400 acres on the owner’s working livestock farm, near the villages of Backbarrow, Newby Bridge and Cartmel.
Located in spectacular countryside, Mungeon Barn is an excellent base for exploring the southern corner of the Lake District, with the ancient priory town of Cartmel just three miles away.
This splendid cottage provides luxurious accommodation, perfect for a family get-together or for guests wishing to escape for a relaxing break.
Built in an upside down style to take into account the stunning views, the open plan living area is on the first floor with a vaulted ceiling, oak beams and an exposed stone wall.
The modern designer kitchen offers everything that you could wish for, whilst the dining table can comfortably sit everyone in the party.
The other end of the living area is taken up with comfortable sofas, a woodburning stove that is guaranteed to keep you warm whatever the weather, a galleried window with exposed stone walling and steps down into the den.
All of the bedrooms are located on the ground floor, with a beautiful master bedroom with an en-suite shower room, a step up to two further king-size double rooms, one with an external stable door leading to the patio and the other with a stable door leading to the front of the cottage, a twin room with stable door, a family bathroom and a shower room.
Outside there is a large slate patio area, designed to maximise the beautiful views, with a built-in barbeque and a sumptuous hot tub where you can while away the evening with a glass of something refreshing as you watch the sun go down.
Mungeon Barn is situated on a working farm where the resident Belted Galloway cattle blend easily into the landscape, whilst the only other distraction might be a hare, deer or pheasant strutting by.
For the anglers in the party, there is a private lake stocked with Rainbow Trout, where if you are lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the otter and her young, depending on the time of the year.
Just three miles away is the popular village of Cartmel with the smallest racecourse in the country and a superb mix of quirky shops, pubs, and of course the famous Michelin starred L’Enclume restaurant.
This fabulous cottage is a gem and is sure to be popular at any time of the year.
