An idyllic retreat for larger groups of family or friends, this property has been tastefully converted to offer seclusion and privacy in the small village of Chapels. Originally built as a barn that was part of a working farm, this property has been lovingly converted to offer accommodation for groups of up to eight people. Despite being spacious, the property has a very cosy feeling, in part due to the retention of original features such as wooden beams and an open fire in the sitting room; wonderful for relaxing by on those chilly winter evenings. For the hazy summer nights, there are front and rear lawns from which you can enjoy a glass o...f wine as the sun goes down. The living area is arranged in an open-plan style and the property boasts a conservatory from which you can soak up the scenery at any time of the year.
Amenities: Gas central heating with woodburner in sitting room. Electric cooker, gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, TV with FreeSat, DVD with sound bar, CD player, library of books/games. Fuel, power & starter pack for woodburner inc. in rent. Additional fuel for woodburner can be purchased at the local garage, 1 mile away. Bed linen & towels inc. in rent. Cot & highchair on request. Off road parking for 2 cars. Front & rear lawned gardens with garden furniture. One well-behaved pet welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop, Post Office & pub 1 mile.
Region: Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
Town: Located in the south-west of the Lake District, Chapels is a small and picturesque hamlet that sits between the nearby mountains and the sea. Surrounded by a patchwork of fields that lead down to the coast, Chapels is a chocolate-box setting from which to explore the local region. For a selection of pubs and restaurants, Broughton-on-Furness has much to offer. The history of Broughton-in-Furness dates back to the 11th Century, with the oldest building thought to be St Mary's Church, first built in Saxon times. The focus of the town is the Georgian market square with its obelisk erected to mark the jubilee of King George III in 1810. In Elizabethan times a charter was granted to hold fairs, and it is in the Square that the annual reading of the Charter takes place on 1st August. Kirkby-in-Furness plays host to the Furness Railway and provides a convenient and relaxing way to take in the splendour of the locality.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

Directions given to the property were great - none of us got lost!
The house was very warm and spacious for eight people, which is always a bonus. Christmas decorations appreciated.
The kitchen was definitely big enough to cook for eight and was incredibly well equipped with all different types of utensil! Used to staying in places with only the right amount of plates/cutlery/glasses per person, but there was an abundance of all these at Brooklands Barn.
The walks around the house were great. Went on an eight mile and a six mile but could have gone further.
The main shower was lovely - modern and warm. Only downside was the shower in the en-suite was leaking, which meant all eight had to use the one main shower. However, never became an issue as the hot water never seemed to run out!
We had some nasty weather whilst we were staying, but didn't matter as plenty of space to stay in all together and play cards etc.
All in all, an absolutely fantastic stay and had a brilliant new year. Would definitely recommend.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, even though weather not great! We sat in the conservatory looking at the rain. Very well equipped throughout- felt like someone's home rather than a holiday let. Bathrooms excellent.

A fully equiped spacious cottage in a quiet but not too out of the way location. 2 good pubs 20 minutes walk away and the most luxurious bathroom I have come across in a rental property. All bedrooms are a good size and with 2 dining areas, a conservatory and lounge, tons of living space. Mobile phone signal rubbish but that's probably a plus for some.

Booking our holiday through sykes was really easy the staff at sykes are very helpfull and everything went very smoothly.
The cottage in chapels where we stayed was one of the best places i,ve had the pleasure of staying at, it was very warm and cosy and very well equiped and furnished.
The location of the cottage was ideal for exploring the lakes and there was also a couple of shops and a nice pub within walking distance.
My famaliy and I could not fault this holiday and loved every minute we would recommend this holiday to everyone
Mr L.Gower and family.

All very smooth process for booking and arrival, with even welcome flowers in the house.
very spacious cottage indeed , and all at a very high standard, and welcomed dogs too.
Location was ideal to explore the southern lakes , and also the coast.
Very good local pubs and local food , but needed a car to drive to all.
Loved Community pub and other pubs and food shops in Broughton, plus Booths supermarket in Windermere, plus exploring Coniston areas.
Spent most of the week walking in fabulous sunshine- what a treat.found lots of flatter walks, in the southern area - ideal for those with knee problems!
only negative was the actual location of the cottage/ barn conversion- as it was in very close proximity to other houses and very little garden. Also the views were mainly blocked by other houses - we had hoped for a better sea view!
Superb, well equipped and roomy

This is a great place to stay - very well equipped, superb kitchen, roomy lounge and very nice conservatory. Bedrooms were all very comfortable and the enclosed garden was useful as we took our dog. In a good area for exploring the south/central lakes and also close to the coast. Quiet location with walks from the door.
A warm Faily home

This cottage has all one would want for a comfortable holiday. Well positioned for the best of Lakes walking, and seaside sand castling, at a reasonable price.
