What began as a stable is now our much loved cottage-style apartment adjacent to Hart Barn tucked away in the delightful conservation village of Hartsop. From the handcrafted internal oak doors inlaid with Jo Vincent’s fused glass through to the local green slate in the contemporary bathroom, what sets this ground floor property apart is the attention to detail.
Thought has been given to the layout from the position of the sofa to capture the ever changing mountain views through to the clever use of a wall bed in the single bedroom so that when not required there is space for storage and a dressing room.
Walk into the welcoming hall and admire the old bridle hooks which are now used as coat pegs before settling down in the sociable living area with its lovely glowing gas fire and very well appointed kitchen. In the summer you can explore the garden (shared with us) or relax on the grass terrace and admire the lake views.

Superb cottage, well equipped, beautifully maintained and furnished – and in breathtaking scenery. We loved watching the birds, sitting outside and soaking up the view and our walks from the door.

Everything you could want for a perfect holiday, from a warm and generous welcome to an emergency supply of nuts for the bird feeder which must be the best in Britain!

Fantastic cottage and location….loved the local walks to fells and around Brotherswater. Beautifully decorated for Christmas.

We have been coming to the Lakes for over 25 years and stayed in many establishments, however for self-catering this beats the lot. Wonderful warm cottage and lovely people to deal with. Thank-you

The place is stunning inside and out with perfect amenities and so beautifully finished with all the gorgeous wood. Beautiful walks around Ullswater and Patterdale. Comfy beds to finish it off!

The best keeps getting better! A fourth visit is on the cards if only to find out what you can improve. Thank-you for the wine, flowers and milk – lovely touches.
