The property

Sizergh 3 miles.

Perched on the outskirts of Stainton in Cumbria, is this superb semi-detached barn conversion, Willowsway Barn.

Boasting three floors, each offering traditional features of exposed stonework and original beams, as well as a fantastic location for accessing Kendal and Grange-Over-Sands, Willowsway Barn makes for a wonderful retreat for a group of friends or family of 10 looking to explore the Lakes as well as the Yorkshire Dales AONB, Forest of Bowland AONB, Arnside & Silverdale AONB.

Take advantage of the ample off-road parking available for six cars, before unloading your bags and being greeted by a delightful gravelled front garden, where you can look forward to savouring the last of the day’s sunshine with a glass of wine.

Beginning on the lower-ground-floor, you will find a well-presented king-size bedroom with en-suite shower room, ideal for those who prefer a little more privacy, as well as an additional shower room and cloakroom, eliminating the need to stand in those morning queues!

You will also benefit from a handy utility room on this floor which houses a tumble dryer and washing machine for keeping your holiday wardrobe fresh.

Make your way up to the ground-floor, where you will find three more well-presented bedrooms, two doubles and a twin, ensuring ample sleeping arrangements for all.

These bedrooms are served by a contemporary bathroom, where you can indulge in a soothing soak as your towel warms on the heated towel rail nearby.

Climb the stairs to the first-floor where you will find table football and darts to keep you amused, as well as the spacious kitchen/diner which has everything you need to whip up tasty treats for your guests, including an American-style fridge/freezer, double oven and dishwasher for keeping your space tidy.

Climb the stairs to the living/dining room, where you can settle down to savour a delicious home-cooked meal at the dining table for 10, as you discuss plans for the days ahead.

After a satisfying meal, take your pick of plush seating to retreat to ready to escape reality with your favourite film on the Smart TV, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

When sleep calls, climb the steps up towards a delightful mezzanine double bedroom, where you can enjoy a refreshing night's embrace.

Set out for the day and head over to the nearby village of Sizergh, where you can treat your guests to a scrumptious pub lunch in front of a warming open fire at The Strickland Arms, pick up ingredients to recreate your favourite meals at Low Sizergh Farm Shop & Café or stop for a bite to eat at the on-site café which offer tasty breakfast and lunches with views of the working farm.

Not to be missed is the beautiful Sizergh, a 14th-century National Trust property which houses fascinating Elizabethan carvings and furniture, there is also the option to explore the expansive gardens with conifers and a rock garden.The barn is adjacent to the Liverpool - Lancaster Canal, where you can walk to Kendal or the Westmorland Showground directly from the property and presents a lovely opportunity for cycling/ dog walks and rambling.

Kendal - well known as 'The Gateway to the Lake District' is the home to the remains of a former medieval hilltop, a selection of museums including the Kendal Museum and Quaker Tapestry Museum, where you can learn more about the local area and its rich heritage.

For those who have brought their clubs, Kendal offers two excellent golf clubs with wonderful countryside views, as well as an all-weather climbing centre for all abilities.

For an exciting getaway to the Lakes, secure your stay at Willowsway Barn.
