Description from manager


Hill Side Barn is a spectacular stone built semi-detached barn conversion, set in a lovely location in the hamlet of Pennington.Lovingly restored and renovated to an exceptional standard, this stunning holiday cottage offers premium class accommodation including three bedrooms, a large open-plan first floor living area including a gorgeous kitchen with central island, dining area and sitting area with wood burner, exposed beams, and doors which open out on to the garden and patio. There is the added benefit of an outdoor hot tub, of which guests have exclusive use - a great place to be after a hard day's walking, cycling or touring of the local area. The bustling market, visitor attractions and year round festivals of Ulverston are within easy reach.

Amenities: Electric storage heaters with woodburner. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, WiFi, TV, DVD, CD/radio. Fuel, power and starter pack for woodburner inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Travel cot and highchair. Ample off road parking. Spacious patio and garden with furniture and BBQ. Hot tub. Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Free range eggs available. Shop 3 miles, pubs 2 miles. Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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: The small scattered hamlet of Pennington is located on the stunning Lake District Peninsula, where hills and beautiful walking country form the perfect backdrop. Visitors can locate the start of the Haematite and Cumbrian Way footpaths here, and refuel at the good twin pubs at Great Urswick Tarn. The nearby ancient market town of Ulverston offers a good selection of restaurants, pubs, shops, a leisure centre and a cinema. It is now home to the only Laurel and Hardy museum in the world, because it is here that Stan Laurel was born. The National Park, sandy beaches and birdwatching opportunities of the Furness Coast are close by. There is plenty for the family to see and do, including the South Lakes Wild Animal Park, Muncaster Castle and the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review. Glad to hear that you had a great time at Hill Side Barn. It is nice to read that the property was homely, it is the perfect characteristic for a family October half term getaway. We hope that the Halloween party was as good, having a hot tub is definitely a key ingredient for a good party. We can't wait for you to book the larger property so that you can take advantage of the kitchen and have another 10/10 experience!
