This lovely converted barn offered stunning views of the Pennines. Every aspect reminded me of one of the many old English classic movies that we like to watch. I was mesmerised. The river was at our doorstep. There was so little and yet so much to see. The wildlife was busy flitting to and fro wherever we passed. Pheasant, rabbits, swans, sheep...and a host of others were close at hand.
Our only regret is that we did not have more time to spend at the house. Our days were few and were spent taking in the beautiful scenery from many vantage points along the district. More on that later as for now I simply want to share the house. It was simple in it's decor yet so much more in the comfort that it offered. If you ever seek a spot in the northern areas of the Lake District (Penrith) and like the simplicity of life, than I would recommend this special spot.
