Spacious, open plan barn and byre conversion decorated to the highest of standards with fantastic views towards Helvellyn and Blencathra.

Bram Cragg Barn is a stunning conversion created from the former 19th-century byre and barn to a holiday home with a wonderful mix of oak beams and slate features combined with stylish modern fittings. The spacious open plan living room is at first floor level to take advantage of the views across the valley. The barn stands detached, adjacent to the owners’ home and two holiday lodges, in an idyllic and peaceful setting. There are unspoilt views in every direction towards Helvellyn and Castle Rock, Blencathra, Skiddaw and High and Low Rigg. The location is delightful, farm animals graze close to the barn and footpaths directly from the house give access not only to the more challenging walking routes but to gentle strolls. The scenery is spectacular and walkers, cyclists and drivers will find the immediate surroundings breathtaking. Central for exploring the Lake District National Park. Shop 4½ miles, pub and restaurant 2½miles.

    A great property in a fabulous location. The owners were friendly and welcoming helping us with advice on what to do in the area and general information. Would highly recommend the fresh eggs every morning !

    Bram Cragg barn was fantastic, this barn should have a 5 star rating, everything spotlessly clean down to the gas BBQ, if it rained we had a bbq and drinks just soaked up the view, the children played with the two sheep dogs Fly and Gem, they also fed the chickens and collected eggs with Gill, they both had a little cry when they had to leave their new friends, we had a great day at the mine just down the road and fantastic day on Quad ride in the forest, Gillian and Duncan was always on hand to answer any questions. We was so impressed with the barn we immediately booked for next year.

    Excellent holiday home, easy to find with direct walks from the house. Be aware no pub in walking distance, but that didn't dampen our holiday. Keswick a few miles away with wide variety of restaurants and shops. Only one small criticism and that is the property is listed as dog friendly, upon arrival it was made clear that pets are not allowed upstairs or in the bedrooms. (the house is an upside down house) if you are a dog owner, who treat your dog like they are a member of the family then like us you wouldn't want to keep them behind a stair gate. (Appreciate no pets on furniture etc) In addition the holiday lodges are located right in front on the garden and are quite close which spoilt the view slightly when BBQ'ing in the evening. Finally, unexpectedly we were asked for a £50 cash deposit from the owners upon arrival (whose property is located at the back of the house) this was not mentioned in the booking process, it's returned after your holiday by cheque. It's a great holiday home but need to amend the listing or relax the rules re the pets!!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We do state that the pub is 2.5 miles away in the text. Pets are allowed upstairs due to the nature of the property but not in the bedrooms or on furniture. The £50.00 security deposit is stated within the additional information that has to be read before the booking can be processed. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to welcome you back to Bram Cragg Barn again soon!

    Lovely place... Would definitely go again. Worth noting that there are steps in the living room which could be challenging for anyone with unsteady toddlers/crawling babies
