Converted in 2004, Dale End Barn provides cleverly spaced accommodation for those wishing to take advantage of the beauty of this part of the Lake District. Situated on the Red Bank road that runs between Elterwater and Grasmere. The barn doors open up to reveal a spacious living, dining, kitchen room with wooden floor and plenty of roof windows making it a light and airy space. The kitchen has fridge with ice making compartment, washer/dryer and dishwasher, also a small breakfast bar, on the other side of the kitchen is a dining table and chairs for 4. Off the lounge area, at either end of the barn are the en-suite bedrooms, both are carpeted and have Velux roof windows with blinds. The double bedroom has double bed, wardrobe and drawers, the other room is twin bedded with wardrobe and dresser.
While the exterior remains that of an old stone barn (you'd never know it was converted if the barn doors were shut). The interior has been fitted out to a high standard. Those staying here will find it a comfortable haven, in a location to dream of!
The garden of Dale End Farm has a designated paved patio area for Dale End Barn guests, set below and to the right of the parking area, this has its own picnic bench and stunning views over Grasmere Water to the fells beyond. The patio is approx 50 yards from the Barn down the farms driveway.
The property benefits from an interconnecting door from the Barn to the Farm and will sleep a total of 15 if booked together with Dale End Farm (reference: GL008). It is also possible to book 'The Loggia' (reference: GL002) which will sleep 2 additional people, making 17 in total.
We want our holiday cottages to be a 'home for home'. All the beds are made up ready for you, towels are included so no need to bring those, and shower mats are also provided. Two tea towels and a set of oven gloves/oven cloth will be in the kitchen along with a starter pack that includes: washing up liquid, kitchen roll, toilet roll, basic cleaning products, a bin bag in each bin and a few dishwasher tabs. This is just to 'start you off'; you will need to buy your own once these have run out.
Please note that there is significant building work taking place at adjacent property resulting in increased noise and traffic in the area. Working hours are 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday. We are in communication with the builders to try and minimise disruption to our guests. If you require further details on this please give our office a call.
