Angel Barn (Sleeps 6)
Magic, angel dust and simple hard work have all helped to transform this 15th century barn into an amazing eco self-catering holiday retreat for 6 guests. In a hidden corner between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, the interiors are a fantastic mix of old and new. This grade two listed building shows off its ancient features whilst welcoming the new, eclectic and modern. A great hideaway, guests feel happy to spend all day relaxing inside or a luxurious place to come back to after a hard day on the fells, or in the pub.
Angel Barn sits within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and boasts views in all directions; you can see over the upper Lune and Eden valleys, as far as Blencathra in the Northern Lakes and not forgetting the magnificent Howgill Fells – described as giant sleeping elephants.
You can walk, run, bike or ride or many other adventures from the doorstep on many miles of footpaths to explore the local nooks and crannies, views and vistas, houses and castles.
A great hideaway from
the hustle and bustle
Angel Barn sleeps 6. The three en-suite bedrooms are all about indulgence with outrageously comfy beds, fantastic fabrics, lush wallpaper, beautiful furniture and very posh paint.
The master room is spacious in both bedroom and bathroom. The bed has been hand crafted by Richard, using the original cow stalls from the barn. Inside the en-suite there’s a unique basin stand, along with a double ended bath and extra large shower.
The middle bedroom, with an antique church pew front as an oversized headboard, can be transformed from a super kingsize bed to twin beds on request. Inside the en-suite shower room you’ll find fluffy towels & soft bath robes, sparkling taps, underfloor heating and fresh green wallpaper. The bedroom at the end of the Barn has a metal-framed kingsize bed topped with soft fur throws and cushions, original beams show off the high ceilings. The en-suite shower room has striking purple wallpaper, a lovely contrast to the calming colours of the bedroom.
The sitting room is designed for maximum lounging with luxurious sofas, upholstered in British wool by Abraham Moon. You can chill out in front of the cosy woodburner in winter or open the doors to the patio in the heat of the summer. A secret TV & DVD in the Georgian corner cupboard shuts out interference from the rest of the world for those who really wish to escape but free superfast WiFi, iPod dock & DAB radio are ready for those who want to stay connected or listen to some tunes.
The handmade kitchen will bring the best out of all budding chefs with everything you need to conjure up fantastic culinary delights. A monster fridge freezer with ice machine, Rangemaster cooker, dishwasher and an array of gadgets allow you to prepare even the largest feast. The double farmhouse tables are often set up by guests for posh dinner parties when the champagne and conversation flow well into the night, or why not hire a private chef for an evening? You’ll be greeted with a champagne welcome hamper brimming with local goodies and home made treats, a great start to your holiday.
Spoil yourselves outside with a sofa breakfast on the deck, a candlit dinner on the dining patio or relax in the wood fired hot tub, listening to the gentle sounds of nature as nightime falls.
Dogs are very welcome at Angel Barn, we pop up a stairgate and ask that they stay downstairs, keep off the sofas and are not left alone whilst you are out. All 3 of our village pubs are dog friendly so your pooch can eat out with you in style. Water bowls and dog towels are provided.
