Kiln Hill Barn Holiday Cottages are located in Bassenthwaite, a desirable area of the Lake District National Park. With the lake and the village centre both under a mile away, you can explore this stunning area on foot. This group of holiday cottages are an excellent choice if you are looking for a peaceful base and idyllic surroundings for your next Lake District escape.
This ground floor apartment is located in the main barn and overlooks the cobbled courtyard and surrounding pastures. After parking directly outside, enter the property into the spacious open plan living/dining room. Retaining much of its character and utilising the exposed beams which add to the interior design, this holiday home provides everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Being all on the ground floor, it is great if you are less mobile or have young children. The master bedroom offers a kingsize bed and the second bedroom has full size twin beds making this property ideal for couples and families. There is plenty of storage for your belongings too. The bathroom has a shower over the bath, perfect for a soak after a long day on the fells. Outside there is a picnic bench to enjoy the afternoon sun. Well behaved dogs are welcome to come along and there are plenty of dog friendly pubs and restaurants in the area, as well as some beautiful walks available nearby.
Whether you are looking for a relaxing retreat or an action packed holiday, you couldn’t ask for a better starting point. Its quiet village location means that you can escape your busy lifestyle and retreat to the countryside in no time. There is an excellent pub and restaurant serving a range of local cask ales and great food just 200 yards away. There is good access to plenty of walking and cycle routes nearby, as well as more challenging fells including Skiddaw, Catbells, Latrigg and Blencathra to name a few. You can walk to Bassenthwaite lake, and Keswick, Cockermouth and the surrounding Lakeland Fells are just a few miles away. The Lake District Wildlife Park, 1 mile, has over 100 species of wild animals, great fun for all the family. Also nearby is The Lakes Distillery offering tasting tours and producers of fine whisky, gin and vodka - always a hit with the adults. The popular town of Keswick, 7 miles, on the shores or Derwent Water, has an abundance of dining and shopping experiences as well as a mix of cultural hotspots and tourist attractions including The Pencil Museum, home to the world’s largest pencil, The Theatre by the Lake offering award-winning arts and drama on the shores of Derwent Water and the mind-boggling world of The Puzzling Place, which is based on optical illusions and fun for all ages. Alternatively perhaps enjoy a trip to Cockermouth, 8 miles, the birthplace of William Wordsworth. Shop ¾ mile, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.
