Knipefold Barn is one of a beautiful selection of quality Lake District holiday cottages managed by The Good Life Cottage Co.

Nestled deep in the Lake District, all our cottages have an abundance of stunning scenery, perfect for walkers, families and stays with a pet. Whether you’re looking for a romantic break, a cosy retreat with a log fire, lake views, or a luxury pet friendly cottage, we have a place that’s just right for you. Our cottages are spread between Elterwater, Chapel Stile, Langdale, Grasmere, Ambleside, Skelwith Fold and Outgate in Hawkshead.

Converted in 2007, Knipefold Barn has been lovingly and sympathetically made into a beautiful, hugely spacious accommodation for five. Entry to the barn is through unusual oak doors into a large hall. There is a utility room with washer, dryer, wine cooler and storage space. The single bedroom is on the ground floor, with pretty bedding and oak panelling. An oak staircase (and lift) leads to the first floor with its two double bedrooms, both with kingsize beds, en-suite bathroom/shower room, and flat screen TVs. A separate toilet and shower room is also on the first floor. The top floor is a huge, open plan area with good sized kitchen/breakfast bar, dining area and living area, retaining lots of original features and oak beams.

As this is a classic upside-down house, the views are fantastic. It is only 5 minutes from Hawkshead and 10 minutes from Coniston, but is so secluded, the most common traffic here is tractors and horses!

Wifi, electricity, heating, towels and linen included. Pets welcome. Unfortunately Knipefold Barn doesn't accept children under 10.
