Within the charming hamlet of Hartsop in England’s famously picturesque Lake District sits Hart Barn, a uniquely designed barn conversion in-keeping with the area’s pretty scenery. Crafted from local stone and finished with a vaulted roof of oak, this splendid space is the perfect retreat for couples wanting to explore the romantic hills and lakes of Northern England without having to choose between authenticity and luxury.

The unassuming exterior leaves your totally unprepared for the “wow” of the interior. The moment you walk into the kitchen and feel the underfloor heating tingle your toes, you’ll know that you’ve picked the ideal base from which to take in the world-famous Lake District. A striking curved wall of brilliant red carves the downstairs area into a high spec modern kitchen/diner replete with Neff appliances on one side, and a hanging space for coats on the other. There is also a useful utility/drying room at the back of the kitchen.

The fabulous square spiral staircase made from polished oak railway sleepers and brushed stainless steel leads you up to the first floor living area. This staircase is designed by the architect owner and is lit from within casting a warm red light through the heart of the building. The living area has a Morso freestanding woodburning stove (with free logs) and a large sofa with footstool to relax on with a book and complimentary glass of prosecco as you gaze out over the lake and fells outside. On this floor is the gorgeous limestone bathroom with freestanding bath, separate shower and Phillipe Stark fittings. Then up the central spiral stairs again to the romantic bedroom nestled in the green oak roof structure with a gallery onto the living room below.

After a long day hiking through the surrounding national park, you’re guaranteed a great night’s sleep on this elegant kingsize bed with Egyptian cotton bedlinen. Enjoy a long soak in the freestanding bath when you come in from walking, or sit on one of the twin recliners which look out over your very own landscaped garden. From the glass table, exquisitely created from the root of a local oak tree to the hand-blown glass chandelier, everything about this magical space feels grounded in the wild and natural beauty of the area.

Although the furniture and exposed beams will remind you that you couldn’t be anywhere else in the world, this Hygge-packed cottage doesn’t lack for luxury and entertainment. With superfast WiFi, a Bose Soundock and a Sky Plus HD enabled home cinema, you can be as connected as you want to be. Whatever the weather, you’ll be equipped for another day’s walking with a full laundry/drying room complete with a washer-dryer, and a stack of fluffy White Company towels.

Cumbria’s Lake District attracts visitors from all over the world with its dramatic landscape; plunging valleys, shimmering lakes, and craggy fells abound in this most beautiful corner of England. Nestled in Hartsop, you won’t be far from the main amenities found in Ambleside, a pretty town just 7 miles away by car and several pubs and shops within 3 miles….however with the fabulous walks, incredible diversity of wildlife and secret swimming spots on your doorstep you will feel a million miles away from the busy modern world.

This pretty and comfortable bolthole is situated near the medieval town of Cartmel in the Lake District and has its own private hot tub in the landscaped courtyard for added luxury.

Spend your day wandering the outstanding countryside that surrounds you, then hop in your hot tub with a glass of wine and enjoy a bit of peace and quiet in style. The open plan, main living space is filled with natural light thanks to its large windows, and there’s a wood-burning stove to keep you nice and toasty in the colder months. You’ll be pleased to hear that the interior design of the cottage stays true to the local style, with whitewashed walls, rustic exposed beams and that wonderful farmhouse feel. Guests can cook up a tasty meal in the well-equipped kitchen that comes complete with a three-way microwave combination oven, in addition to a full range of similarly high-end kitchen appliances. Upper Crumble is perfectly positioned for anyone who wants to visit the exceptional countryside that the Lake District has to offer. Ramblers and outdoors enthusiasts will have plenty to see and do during the day, before relaxing in true comfort back at the cottage after a long day out and about. The topography on display in the national park is world famous and is a huge attraction for walkers and artists alike. However, there are also an increasingly varied range of additional things to do in this pretty corner of the world. Make sure you hop on a boat and enjoy seeing Windermere from the water. The nearby Cartmel is a great place for food lovers and has some excellent restaurants on offer. Simon Rogan’s two Michelin Star restaurant L’Enclume is situated there, as well as sister establishment Rogan & Co, which has just won its first Michelen star. The Cartmel Coffee is also worth a visit, before heading to the high-end artisanal Unsworth Yard market, with a micro brewery, cheese shop, and wine bar.

    Experience the magical ruggedness of the Lake District from the comfort of this peaceful and luxurious B&B. Choose from one of six stunning rooms - all stylish, luxurious, comfortable and cosy. It's the perfect space to hunker down and take in the spectacular surroundings or return to after long days hiking the trails. Each is named Lake District-appropriate, from Fell to Tarn to Herdwick, and, while they all share wonderful views and high-standards of luxury and comfort, the room interiors are as different as the names. And while the decor and layout may differ, each room is ensuite with oodles of hot water, gorgeous complimentary smellies and fluffy towels and bathrobes. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer wonderful views of the surroundings and underfloor heating and sheepskin rugs ensure visitors are cosy throughout their stay. Wake to the sun's rays gently warming the face and the sound of the birds beginning their day. Make a morning coffee courtesy of the handy Nespresso machine (kettles are also provided for those hankering after a proper cuppa), hop back into bed, or settle into the comfy armchairs and watch the weather roll over before heading to breakfast. After demolishing a hearty breakfast, guests are fully-fuelled for a day exploring the tarns, fells, lakes and pubs of this breathtaking national park. Guests share a large, comfortable lounge where they can kick off their boots (there is a handy drying room), relax with a drink from the honesty bar, swap tales with other travellers or spend some quiet time reading and enjoying the tranquility of their surroundings. There are plenty of activities to keep guests busy. Apart from exploring the Lakes and Fells, there are Roman Forts, steam railways and the pretty harbour town of Whitehaven, a great spot to grab dinner. After a day exploring, return for a romantic evening under the stars, glass of bubbly in-hand, looking out at the starlit sky and making plans for the next day.
