Old Barn: Outgate
This is a fine example of a 17th century Lakeland barn that has been converted to form two charming homes in an elevated position overlooking the Esthwaite Valley and the picturesque village of Hawkshead.
Situated down a quiet country lane, under 2 miles from Hawkshead and close to Ambleside for shopping and eating out.
The owners have added many personal touches to create a homely and welcoming atmosphere. The cottage provides a popular cosy hideaway for all year round use.
For walkers there is a wide variety of routes from low level walks to more challenging mountain walking all within easy access.

A sunny entrance porch with Lakeland slated floor and window seat leading to the dining room with dining table and chairs.
The living room is comfortably furnished, with TV with Sky Freeview, DVD, CD player, telephone and wood burning stove and access through french windows to the garden.
The Spacious kitchen is well planned and equipped to a high standard with large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, double oven and separate electric hob and microwave.
The King sized double is en-suite with shower, wc and washbasin is complimented by a pretty twin bedded room.
The bathroom has a bath with overhead shower, washbasin and wc. Gas central heating.

Comment: We were happy that this property allowed us to bring our 3 dogs, although the garden is not secure. We enjoyed the privacy & peace & quiet. Nice and clean and very cosy, especially with the woodburned.

Comment: We really enjoyed our stay at the Old
Barn. The cottage was very warm and
comfortable with all mod cons. We
enjoyed the garden on sunny mornings and
The cottage is fantastically placed for
many activities. Enjoyed several days
cycling in Grizdale, rented kayaks from
Coniston Boating Centre and walked both
from the cottage and further afield.
We found the tour of Wray Castle,
previously not open to the public,
interesting and a walk from there up
Latterbarrow and back along the shore of
Windermere made a great day out.
This is our second visit to this area,
and with Hideaways, I am sure we will be

Comment: Our stay has been just fabulous. The cottage was beautifully clean on arrival, even the oven which is so often overlooked or ignored.
We expected just a days supply of fuel for the fire and dishwasher so were very delighted this was all included
The cottage was warm and cosy throughout our stay and we wanted for nothing in terms of crockery and equipment.
The mattress (once again so often lacking) was comfortable and the bedding beautifully clean and white.
Thank you for all the attention to detail. We have had a wonderfully relaxing week in a beautifully cosy environment. Compliments to you and your staff and to the owners of Old Barn.
We will return!

Comment: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Barn and found the Barn to be charming, warm, very well-equipped and, most importantly, impeccably clean.
We will definately come to stay again & would have no hesitation in recommending The Old Barn or Lakeland Hideaways.
