General Info

July Flowertree Barn is a 17th century Lakeland barn located within gorgeous countryside and nestled in a village very close to the southern tip of Lake Windermere. The barn is named after a nearby specimen of the Sycamore tree which is at its very best in the month of July. The barn is set in beautiful gardens with its own paddock and woodland to explore. The private woodland is part of a rare Atlantic rainforest and linked to wonderful walks to nearby High Dam, Finsthwaite Heights and Rusland Heights. It follows woodland paths, open fell and fields, with panoramic views over the Rusland Valley and towards the Coniston Fells. The fields in front of the house provide more woodland walks with trails leading to nearby Lakeside, The Swan Hotel and Finsthwaite Tower. Inside the barn you can enjoy two bright, sociable reception areas with French windows straight out onto the sunny terrace as well as a warm ‘Snug’ downstairs. There are 2 modern bath and shower rooms with free-standing bath and monsoon showers. The barn boasts 3 elegant king size bedrooms as well as a restful twin room. The well-equipped 21st century kitchen and open plan dining area is perfect for keen cooks and formal meal times. On the ground floor, there is separate shower-room and loo as well and large utility space. The larger of the reception rooms has a Woodburning Stove as well as a lovely reading area by the French windows with views out on to the garden. The second reception area forms part of the open-plan dining and kitchen area. It’s perfect for an evening drink with the French windows opening out on to the terrace and garden. The ‘Snug’ provides the perfect escape for children and teenagers with a large television, surround-sound and plenty of boardgames. The Garden is a secluded and quiet spot opening out on to a paddock and woodland. The well-maintained herbaceous border means there is always a beautiful array of plants and flowers to enjoy through spring, summer and autumn months. There is a yard with a secure, sheltered areas for bikes, kayaks and other sports equipment as well as a BBQ and a firepit. There are various outside seating spots, as well as a teak table and chairs to enjoy alfresco dining during the warmer months. A Woodfired Hot Tub (installed in 2021) allows space for 6- 8people to enjoy the views or some star gazing from the comfort and seclusion of the garden. The sleepy village of Finsthwaite is only a short distance from Lakeside and the shores of Lake Windermere. It boasts many local walks, the most popular being High Dam, a secluded beauty spot which is ideal for wild swimmers. The village is also a short drive from Ulverston and Kendal, nearby bustling markets towns, and a 10minute drive from the picturesque village of Cartmel, famous for the Cartmel Races and Sticky Toffee Pudding. If you are looking to go on a proper hike, then Coniston Old Man is a mere 25minute drive. The Swan and Lakeside Hotels are both within walking distance. Other local attractions include The Lakes Aquarium and one end of the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway with traditional steam trains. Historic sites such as Scott Park Bobbin Mill, Sizergh Castle, Blackwell Arts and Crafts House, Levens Hall and Holker Hall & Gardens are all within easy reach by car. To your north west, you will approach the landscapes that famously inspired the children's author Beatrix Potter via peaceful country lanes. Her former home can be visited at Hill Top, in the small village of Near Sawrey. Only a mile or so further, and you will reach the enchanting village of Hawkshead with its quaint cobbled streets and a blissfully car-free village centre. For some of the best mountain biking territory you will find nearby Grizedale Forrest a must. Read More
