Enjoy a slice of the English Lakes at The Great Barn - our perfect hideaway for six. This flawless five-star retreat is situated in 26-acres of private grounds with half-a-mile of private access to England's ‘most beautiful' lake. Overlooking the fells and serene waters through its walls of glass, you're living in the view. But this exquisitely renovated 17th century barn is so much more than stunning views. With endless amenities and luxurious extras to boot, we can't guarantee you'll ever want to leave! Taking advantage of its original design as a Bank Barn, The Great Barn is bolted comfortably into the landscape with a split level layout and walls of glass bringing the outside in.

This flawless five-star retreat is situated in 26-acres of private grounds with half-a-mile of private access to England's ‘most beautiful' lake. Overlooking the fells and serene waters through its walls of glass, you're living in the view. But this exquisitely renovated 17th century barn is so much more than stunning views. With endless amenities and luxurious extras to boot, we can't guarantee you'll ever want to leave! Taking advantage of its original design as a Bank Barn, The Great Barn is bolted comfortably into the landscape with a split level layout and walls of glass bringing the outside in. With the majestic landscape as the backdrop, relax on the patios, feast on the views, and enjoy the great outdoors. Back inside, The Great Barn offers a distinctly luxurious edge. The interior design is inspiring and provides a high level of comfort, incorporating the latest state of the art technology. Living spaces include the Lake Room, its spacious reaches able to be transformed into a cinema, a dance floor, a games room, or just a place to gather with the ones you love. Three double bedooms (all highly covetable) each benefit from porcelain or stone en suites. To complement your stay, other services include personal concierge - private butler, in-house chef, waiting staff, pre-prepared gourmet meals, flower delivery, private Pilates, cosmetic treatments, sports massage, childcare, classic car hire, flying or sailing lessons.

Security gate entry system Breathtaking panoramic views of lake and mountains Covid-19 measures* (see Notes) The Location: Surrounded by stunning Lakeland fells, The Great Barn is set amongst some of the most breathtaking scenery you'll find in England. It is the perfect retreat for a relaxing get away and, for those thrill seekers looking for the next adrenalin rush, the perfect playground for adventure! Nestled on the side of Hallin Fell there is an abundance of stunning walks to enjoy direct from your front door. If you would rather embark on your own Swallows and Amazons adventure there is a lot of Ullswater to explore and kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, motor boats and RYA sailing lessons can be arranged at the Ullswater Yacht Club. Private fishing tuition from one of the local qualified instructors can be arranged too. For a day out with a difference, board one of the Ullswater Steamers which sail all year round and experience Ullswater in a completely different light. You can hop on at Howtown (just a short walk from Waternook) and trip around the lake jumping on and off at various locations including Glenridding, Aira Force and Pooley Bridge. From Glenridding you can take on the challenging trek leading up Helvellyn to Striding and Swirral Edges. Aira Force Waterfall boasts spectacular walks through the woodlands trailing alongside the rushing rapids. Ullswater is one of many wonderful places in the Lake District offering visitors an experience that will be truly memorable. Unspoilt, untamed and bursting with everything the Lake District has to offer, it is a place that is relatively untouched by tourism and a place that offers a complete escape from our daily lives. Notes: No smoking No fireworks please Not suitable for hens and stag parties Guests are advised to take care when by the lakeside water's edge Guests should take care on the spiral staircase leading to the upstairs bedroom There are some low beams The Great Barn has WiFi but speeds are slow due to the proximity of the mountains * Covid-19 measures for this property: In full compliance with the hospitality industry cleaning protocols and safety guidance.
