About Olde Blue Bell Barn

This quaint 18th Century coaching inn estate was recently converted to form 3 character cottages, situated in the centre of a picturesque Cumbrian village, near Kendal, with an excellent pub just a 5 minute walk away.
Olde Blue Bell Barn is a warm cottage with a south westerly aspect. It catches the sun from early in the morning through ‘til dusk, and witnesses stunning sunsets over the fells and Kent estuary.
It has 2 bedrooms, a spacious double room with walk in wardrobe and a twin room. The bathroom is equipped with a large bath and electric shower, and tiled in clean ceramic white and blue.
A combined lounge / dining room and separate kitchen are located on the upper floor to allow full benefit of the views and evening sun. A pitch pine wooden floor has been laid throughout, with furnishings in warm hues to blend with the natural wood colours. Reclining leather sofas provide the finishing touches for a very relaxing environment.
A flat screen television with Sky reception, video and DVD players, a mini hi-fi with radio, tape and CD facilities are provided, and there is free wireless internet connection at all times.
The kitchen is equipped with a fridge and small freezer, microwave, washing machine, electric cooker and hob. We keep it stocked with all the basic provisions you need to make holiday cooking a little easier.
Full gas central heating, which can be thermostatically set to a temperature of your liking, ensures Olde Blue Bell Barn is cosy at all times. There is a patio area for breakfasting in the morning sun or BBQ’s. This cottage is ideal for families, as there is a small play park for children in the nearby field. We also welcome pets in this cottage.
A welcome pack will guide you around the local area; fresh tea, coffee, bread and milk will be left to greet you from your journey.
Walk from the door to enjoy Heversham’s beautiful views and stunning sunsets over the Lakeland fells and estuary. The quaint market town of Kendal is on the doorstep, with Windermere the closest lake and easy access to the Yorkshire Dales and villages. The cottages are an ideal base for walking, cycling, and bird watching or just chilling out!
Families & pets very welcome.
