Luxury Self Catering Cottage in Cumbria, Lake District
Maximum occupancy 3
Stoneheights, as it names implies, was the original hay loft for Street Farm from where the hay would be thrown down to the horses stabled below, resting after a hard day’s work, happily munching away on their hay. Today, you can sit in this beautifully restored barn and watch our horses grazing happily in the paddocks below.
From the garden 13 external stone steps lead upwards in a single flight to the entrance door of Stoneheights leading into a spacious open plan kitchen and living area. Natural light floods in from windows on both sides making this an incredibly sunny space and the full height ceiling with huge oak trusses give it an instant wow factor. The carefully styled interior includes an oak kitchen, stone fireplace with a wood burning stove and an exposed feature stone wall. The living area leads to a king size bedroom with a feature arch window with fabulous views over Harter Fell. The bathroom includes a sink, w.c and power shower.
