    The barn was done to a high standard and excellently equipped.The best we have stayed at so far.

    The barn was done to a high standard and excellently equipped.The best we have stayed at so far. We were not aware it was two holiday lets as the photos showed use of all the ground and there was no mention that the barn was two lets. Our half did not have access to the lawned garden part. Also our dog is not good with other dogs.We kept our dog on a tether when sitting on the patio.On one occasion a dog from the people letting the other side came round to our side and this caused our dog to rear at the other.Luckily the other dog went back to it's side and no harm done. It would help if the two halves of the garden could be fenced off to prevent this issue. Fantastic location with beautiful scenery and lovely having the sheep close to us and hearing them. We would definitely go back.

The property

Superb barn conversion located on the outskirts of the village of Ousby, close to the village of Melmerby in the stunning Eden Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Converted to a high standard this barn conversion is ideal for a romantic retreat in this picturesque and peaceful area.

Inside is an open plan but cosy sitting and dining area with a Kirkstone slate floor and underfloor heating powered by an air-source heat pump which keeps an ambient temperature.

The woodburner is perfect to cuddle in front of when the evenings are cooler after a day spent exploring.

Enjoy a coffee on the patio and take in the fell views with the Lake District in the distance or have a glass of wine while enjoying the sunset.

From the door you can walk to the pub in Ousby and Melmerby is approximately a mile away with a shop and bakery which is locally renowned.

The Eden Valley area offers lovely walks along riverbanks and country lanes shouldered by the fells.

For those wanting more of a challenge, Cross Fell is the highest and actually overlooks the barn and the long distance Pennine Way is also close by.

The Lake District is very accessible, only 25 minutes to Ullswater and Pooley Bridge where you can take the steam cruises along the lake or enjoy other water activities at Keswick which is just 35 minutes away.

The area also has an abundance of cycle routes for different levels of ability and energy!

Return at the end of your day’s activities and enjoy the comfort of this lovely barn accommodation.

The location of this Ousby barn means you can explore Yorkshire, the Lake District or the west coast with Hadrian’s Wall making this a perfect base year round.

OUSBY

Ousby is a small village surrounded by countryside in the Eden Valley. It has a pub called the Fox Inn, a campsite and a church called St Luke's Church. It is excellent for walking and cycling and is only a mile from the village of Melmerby which 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.
