    First stay at Cobblestone Barn and we were not disappointed at all. Very spacious, spotless inside and felt very much like home from home. Pub next door is excellent and would definitely recommend. Lots to see and do although you do have a bit of drive for some visits. That said this suited us as we like to be a little remote where peace & quiet is guaranteed. Hellvellyn was definitely worth walking although personally harder than climbing Snowden via the Pyg trail. Glad we did it though. All in all excellent and would highly recommend staying at the barn.

About the location


Penrith 10 miles; Pooley Bridge 14 miles; Keswick 26 miles.

The attractive, unspoilt rural village of Melmerby nestling at the foot of the Pennine scar is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District, North Pennines, Hadrian’s Wall and the beautiful Eden Valley. Melmerby takes its name from having been the home of a Dane named Melmor, who resided in the village in the ninth century. Today Melmerby offers a wide green with a winding stream, a pub, a shop, a bakery and a church, and is situated on C2C Cycle Route. The surrounding countryside is abundant with wildlife and is home to the native red squirrel, and hares can be spotted easily, and the varied landscape is also a haven for birdwatchers, where curlews, oystercatchers and lapwings can be seen during the summer months. Within easy reach are many places to visit including the town of Penrith, the village of Pooley Bridge and beautiful Ullswater. A delightful place to stay in order to explore this wonderful area.
