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.
