  • “We had a very nice time at Kentmere hall barn.”

    Initially were a bit skeptical about the accommodation as it was very isolated (no phone signal) and didn't look as welcoming on the outside. However, upon entering we came to find a cozy, clean and colourful home with all the necessary facilities. Along with beautiful views of the landscape presented to us.

The property

Standing at the head of the Kentmere Valley, surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District, Kentmere Hall is built around a defensive pele tower dating back to the early 14th century.

Here you’ll find a superb 21st century RIBA shortlisted barn conversion of the adjacent Bank Barn.

With all the living space across the ground floor, and beautiful open plan living, kitchen and dining space, your group will have lots of space to socialise, be together and make happy memories.

You’ll arrive in Kentmere along the narrow lane that winds its way up to the head of the valley and the village of Kentmere with its historic church and whitewashed cottages scattered across the hillside.

The final approach is down a narrow drive which leads to the house, where you can pull up right outside the front door.

The front door opens to the welcoming open plan kitchen, dining/living room with beams and slate floors.

Comfortable sofas and armchairs are arranged around the cosy log burner and TV.

(No live TV available due to reception.

However, viewing through the internet is fine, iPlayer, ITV player, Channel 4 etc or your own Netflix and Amazon TV).

The family dining table sits at the heart of the room making it the ideal place for relaxing mealtimes, or the place to gather in the morning over breakfast to plan your day.

The contemporary fitted kitchen, with beautiful granite worktops, is well equipped with everything you need.

Three pretty bedrooms lead off the living accommodation, all with sliding doors to maximise the use of space and light and all with views to the surrounding countryside.

A double room with en-suite bathroom; a double or 2’6” twin bedroom (please specify your choice when you make your booking) or a 3’ twin bedded room.

A spacious shower room with a walk-in shower, basin and WC.

The utility/boot room has plenty of space for your outdoor gear, and drying wet clothes, and is also home to the washing machine and tumble dryer.

From here the back door from here opens to the great outdoors and a gravelled area with outdoor dining furniture where you can relax.

The Kentmere Valley is a narrow valley surrounded by a horseshoe of high fells, to the east of Lake Windermere.

The scenery is breath-taking, the atmosphere blissfully tranquil and the location within surprisingly easy reach of Lake Windermere and other highlights of the Lake District.

But when popular Lakes holiday destinations are teeming at bank holidays and school holidays, the Kentmere Valley remains relatively untouched.

The Kentmere Valley is approached via a small country lane from the village of Staveley.

Staveley is a pretty little village between Kendal and Windermere; a popular hub for walkers and cyclists – head to Staveley Mill Yard for lots of great cafes, bakeries, and a brewery and beer hall.

Staveley's Eagle & Child pub is also a superb traditional Lakeland pub.

The Kentmere Valley is a popular location for a Lake District walking holiday, and you'll find many varied routes to enjoy from your doorstep.

Mountain bikers and rock climbers find their high points too!
