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, and the dining area has a large oak table with eight upholstered chairs. 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.

    This was our second visit, and we have already booked a third. This is almost the perfect holiday cottage imaginable in the Lake District.

    Brilliantly designed accomodation, the owner has thought of everything, so well equipped with extra touches everywhere. In a superb location for many walks and only a 5 minute drive to Threlkeld where there is the Horse and Farrier pub serving lovely meals and not much further into Keswick. We spent most nights indoors as the cottage is so lovely and made good use of the outdoor covered BBQ.

    It’s a magical large open plan barn conversion with bedrooms wash with their own bathrooms! Large entertaining space upstairs! Pet friendly what else could you ask for! We loved it and are just about to book again.

    Beautiful and spacious barn conversion. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The owners were very welcoming. The only slight disappointment was that the twin beds were very small for adults. Would definitely go again.
