The Old Grainstore is one of a pair of beautiful contemporary barn conversion holiday cottages, where you can experience life on a working farm and get closer to nature, whilst staying in the lap of luxury. Situated on the edge of the Lake District, the peaceful, rural location means you can get away from it while being ideally based for exploring the Lake District, Solway Coast, the historic border city of Carlisle, Hadrians Wall and the Scottish Borders. Super family friendly too !

The space
The Old Grainstore is a stylish and spacious barn conversion cottage sleeping up to 6 plus up to two babies.
Converted from a 200-year old barn, retaining original features, such as exposed brickwork and oak beams, but also having the feel of a boutique interior.
The large living room is very smart and comfortable, with a smooth wood floor and lovely huge ceiling to floor window overlooking the farm yard, a pair of deep sofas, large Freesat TV, DVD player, and wood burning stove. The dining kitchen includes an electric oven with a ceramic hob, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing/dryer machine and a table with 6 chairs, plus high chairs are available. On the first floor, the master bedroom has a king size bed and an ensuite shower room with a WC. The second bedroom has a double bed and the third has zip link twin beds that can be made up as a Super king-size bed. The master bedroom and double bedroom have space for travel cots and all three bedrooms have a TV. The contemporary-styled family bathroom has a bath with Separate quadrant shower, a washbasin and WC. Outside, the cottage has a patio with a dining table and chairs, BBQ on request plus a safe enclosed shared grass garden area with picnic tables and space for children to play.
The Old Grainstore ia a Green Gold award winner and we are very proud of our eco friendly credentials.
There is off-road parking for up to three cars, a secure cycle store and a tap for washing muddy bikes and boots.
There's also free wifi if you find it impossible to leave work behind or you have teenagers suffering from social media withdrawal.

Location

Cumbria, England, United Kingdom

Red Hall Farm in Cumbria is just nicely off the busiest tourist trails of the Lake District, between the quieter Northern Lakes and the Solway Coast. The gentle grassy peaks of the Caldbeck Fells are close by, dotted with pretty villages to sample local ales and good food in traditional pubs and cosy tea rooms.

The most famous Lakeland poet, William Wordsworth, was born in the bustling market town of Cockermouth (20 mins) and Melvyn Bragg hailed from Wigton, just 3 miles from the Farm. Wigton is a small town that dates back to medieval times and it has a good range of local shops and a Co-Op as well as cafes, pubs, restaurants and a swimming pool and soft play. Lakeland world of animals is just 15 miles away too. Cockermouth is a bigger market town with an attractive high street, Wordsworth’s House Museum and the Kirkgate Centre for arts, theatre and film.

Keswick (18 miles) is the gateway town to the Northern Lakes, including Derwent Water, Bassenthwaite and Thirlmere, between the awesome peaks of Skiddaw and Helvellyn. The town has a thriving cobbled high street and a great choice of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, plus a swimming pool with a waterslide, wave machine and pool-side cafe. Keswick is also the home of Lakeland Pencils and families can pay a visit to the pencil museum, or head off to the lake shore to hire a boat on Derwent Water. To the West of Keswick, Whinlatter Forest is a mecca for mountain bikers and children can also play at the adventure playground, do the Gruffalo trail or monkey around in the treetops at the Go Ape adventure course.

Besides all the majestic scenery of the Lake District, Red Hall Farm is only 15 minutes drive from the Solway Coast where much of the amazingly unspoilt landscape has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is a fine sandy beach at Allonby (12.5 miles), and the Victorian seaside town of Silloth, which are ideal for flying kites and building sand castles, plus the coast is well known for its golf courses and boasts beautiful sunsets.
