Crakeld Holm is a holiday home in the picturesque Eden Valley region of Cumbria. It is close to the Lake District National Park (Ullswater 10 miles away).
It is a 4 bedroom, converted barn providing comfortable accommodation for a maximum of 8 people and it is available for rental on a weekly basis or for long weekends.
*IMPORTANT NEWS* In April 2014 we installed super-fast broadband in ALL our cottages, resulting in download speeds of up to 30mbps.
Crakeld Holm has been transformed into a fabulous four-bedroom house. Much of the original character has been retained, in particular the main entrance, with its lovely sandstone archway which leads into the original upper hayloft, now a dramatic open plan living area and kitchen with traditional slit windows, an owl hole, hefty timber beams and high ceiling. The room itself is a showstopper, only bettered by the wonderful southerly view from the French windows and timber balcony out over the pastureland, to the river and viaduct beyond. Also on this upper level is a bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
Upper level: Entrance Hall, Sitting area, Dining area, Kitchen, Utility room, Cloak room, Bedroom 4, en-suite bathroom.
The main bedroom accommodation is on the lower level and here there are three further bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite), all with the same wonderful view.
Lower level: Bedroom 1, en-suite bathroom, bedroom 2, Bedroom 3, Family bathroom, side entrance.
This is a cosy home too; The conversion has included a number of the latest elements to maximise insulation and energy efficiency and the barn is essentially warmed by state of the art under-floor heating, enhanced in the sitting room by an effective wood-burning stove.
The property has a Freeview 32″ digital TV and super-fast broadband.
Outside, there is a paved terrace below the balcony with a barbecue area together with an enclosed lawn and garden.
