The Great Barn (sleeps 8)

The Great Barn, sleeping 8 over 4 luxury suites, exudes five star luxury and overlooks the serene waters of lake Ullswater in the Lake District National Park, arguably boasting some of the most enviable views in the Lake District National Park. The Lake District was been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site on Sunday 9 July 2017. It now joins other wonders of the world like the Taj Mahal, The Great Wall of China and Machu Picchu with the status. 

This quintessential 17th century converted barn, has seductively leapt into the 21st century with true flair and sophistication, providing outstanding quality and presidential luxury. Set within 26 acres of private grounds with ½ mile of lake shoreline enjoying uninterrupted panoramic lake views across Ullswater to the Lakeland Fells beyond.

Taking advantage of its original design as a Bank Barn, The Great Barn fits comfortably into the landscape and its split level layout exploits both its secluded position and walls of glass almost bring the outside in! Whether you access The Great Barn by road, water or air the scenery is stunning whatever the season. With the majestic landscape as the backdrop, relax on the patios, feast on the views, and enjoy the great outdoors. Experience a taste of Ullswater and Cumbria right now by watching this short video [also featuring Waternook & The Great Barn].

The interior design is luxurious and inspiring, incorporating the latest state of the art technology, so whether you are celebrating a happy event, searching for the perfect setting for an intimate wedding or just spending time with your favourite people, this is a sophisticated and luxurious property that is designed to make you want to return time and time again! 

Both The Great Barn and Waternook have won numerous prestigious awards including a Visit England 5 Star Gold Award, Winner of the Condé Nast Johansens Award for Excellence, a Visit England ROSE Award for Service Excellence [an award that can only be won once] and won the 2016 Cumbria Tourism Awards.
