One of the Lakes best kept secrets, situated near Hawkshead and in the small hamlet of Knipefold, close to Outgate, offering miles of views towards the Hawkshead fells and surrounding countryside.
Converted in 2007, Knipefold Barn has been lovingly and sympathetically made into beautiful, hugely spacious accommodation for five.
No stone left unturned, everything has been thought out down to the last detail. Entry to the barn is through unusual oak doors into a large hall with slate floor and under-floor heating; a large utility room with Washer, Dryer, wine cooler and plenty of storage space and hooks for coats etc.
The single bedroom is on the ground floor as well, with pretty bedding and oak panelling. An oak staircase leads to the first floor with its two Double bedrooms, one with superking 6ft bed, en-suite bathroom, the other with king size bed and en-suite shower room.
Both have flat screen TV's and night-time lighting, so you can find your way in the small hours.
A separate toilet and shower room is also on the first floor(All the bathroom fittings are Villeroy and Boch).
The top floor is huge and all open plan, with a good-sized kitchen and breakfast bar, dining area and living area, retaining lots of original features and oak beams.
The polished oak floors and high ceiling with skylights give a real feeling of space, while the 'Stressless' leather furniture, will keep you comfy while looking at the view. The original beams span this room so some of our taller guests may have to duck occasionally or risk a sore head.
As this is a classic upside down house the views are fantastic; the other great thing about it, is location, although only 5 mins from Hawkshead and about 10 from Coniston, the only reason most people come down the lane is if they're lost, the most common traffic here is tractors and horses.
5 Star property in fantastic central location.
Views & style in abundance.
