Description

A characterful barn conversion ideally situated to explore the Northern Fells and Eastern Lakes.

Cruck Barn sits in the small hamlet of Berrier which offers amazing views, both to the Pennines in the east and to the magnificent Lake District mountains and fells to the south and west. The nearest mountain is Blencathra at little more than a mile away and the nearest lake is Ullswater, the second longest in the Lake District. Berrier is an ideal location from which to explore the whole of the Lake District, as well as the Eden Valley, Hadrian’s Wall and Scottish Borders.
Cruck Barn is a Grade II listed building, sensitively converted to accommodate six people. The accommodation is set out as follows:
Front entrance porch, ideal for boots and coats and on appropriate days can double as a small sun lounge to take in the superb views of the Dodd and Mell Fells to the south west. Another large glass door gives access to the ground floor and open living area with its magnificent cruck beams and free standing stone fireplace. The whole area is carpeted with three piece suite and television/DVD player and with both storage heating and a large wood burning stove.

The kitchen area is cosy, low beamed and well-equipped with fridge, microwave, washing machine, freezer, electric cooker and hob. The floor is limestone flagged and there is a large farmhouse table which doubles as the dining area.
There are two galleried bedrooms, one leading from the kitchen area with two single beds and the other leading from the living area via a curved staircase has two single beds. The third bedroom is on the ground floor and has a double bed. The bathroom is also on the ground floor with three piece suit consisting of bath, WC and wash hand basin. There is also an independent shower above the bath.

Outside there is both a patio and grassed area with furniture and barbecue for those warm summer days and evenings. There is also a very large lawn with access to a smaller, walled and more private garden if required. There is ample parking for several cars plus secure storage for mountain bikes etc.

There is also access to 20 acres of fields via a driveway gate, ideal for a stroll or dog walking. There is also access to a nearby Spa for up to four people by arrangement with the owner and for those who would like to see some of this magnificent scenery from the air, Gyrocopter flights are available, again by arrangement with the owner. The nearby grass airstrip can double as a golf practise area and there is a beautiful round summer house above the strip from which to sip a glass of wine, take in the fantastic view and watch the sun go down over the mountains to the west. The nearest pub is within walking distance.

    It's a tired building, no towels included, and the stairs leading up to the kitchen area are dangerous to children. The equipment in the kitchen is sparse. There was an uneasy feeling in the house, while we were there, that was not normal.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are very proud of Cruck Barn and we go out of our way to make sure it is clean, warm and welcoming for all of our guests. The views from the garden and neighbouring fields are just fantastic. There are Lakes, villages, pubs and facilities all nearby. It is therefore both surprising and rather upsetting to receive this review. Towels are not supplied and this is made very clear in extra details prior to booking. There are two small stone steps leading from the living area to the kitchen. For that reason, again spelt out in the Cruck Barn details, we do not allow children under the age of five, on the grounds of safety. Children over that age are allowed under the assumption that they are sensible and under parental control. Unfortunately upon departure Cruck Barn was found to have been left in an unacceptable condition which therefore required extra cleaning. The interior of Cruck Barn is full of character with massive oak beams, it dates back to 1663. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped. Regarding the comment about the atmosphere in the Barn being ‘not normal’, after 25 years of letting Cruck Barn, that’s definitely a new one on me! These guests had plenty of opportunity to raise their concerns to either myself or Cumbrian Cottages. Unfortunately they did neither, on several occasions during their stay I asked if everything was alright to which I always received a positive response. On the morning of their departure, I chatted to the guest and his father-in-law. Again, neither offered any negative remarks either about their stay or Cruck Barn and appeared to leave happily enough. Had they done we would have put things right immediately.
