Description: A traditional Lakeland stone barn, believed to date from the 18th century, Swallowdale has all the attributes that a barn conversion should have, plus wonderful views! Of course it has quirky split level accommodation, exposed beams, lintels and feature thick stone walls. The lounge has a particularly interesting vaulted ceiling and there are nooks and crannies in most rooms. This has been complemented by high quality modern fittings and the blend of these features gives Swallowdale a particularly welcoming feel. A new oil boiler and oil tank were installed in 2018.

The accommodation is split over 3 floors and offers 3 bedrooms (1 with en-suite WC), lounge, breakfast kitchen, contemporary shower room and separate utility which with a bit of upgrading could even become a fourth bedroom.

Outside is a Lakeland stone paved parking area for 1-2 cars, a neat rear garden with tiered paved patio and small lawned area and from its elevated position gives both privacy and pleasant views over the fields to the fells beyond.

Booths and the lovely market town of Ulverston is only 5.6 miles away, Coniston water 7.1 miles and Lake Windermere 3.5 miles.
The Haverthwaite steam railway is within walking distance and from there a short train ride to Lakeside on Lake Windermere where a boat can take you to Bowness village and even up to Ambleside.
 

Situation: Located in the pretty hamlet of Haverthwaite, at the southern edge of the Lake District National Park but 0.5 miles from the A590 giving easy access to the M6.

From Windermere proceed south on the A592 towards Newby Bridge for approx. 6 miles taking the 2nd exit west on the A590. Continue along for a further 2 miles turning left at the cross roads sign posted Haverthwaite. Follow the road towards the village and after just less than 0.5 miles there is a small cluster of stone buildings on the right. It's easiest to take the 3rd lane on the right and double back slightly on yourself and Swallowdale is on the left as you drop back down to the main road again.
