Location From Ambleside take the A593 road to Coniston. Proceed into Coniston on Yewdale Road continuing over the bridge and out of the village for approximately 1.75 miles and the property can be found on the right hand side at the beautifully named hamlet of Little Arrow, just prior to St Luke’s Parish Church. There are two car parking spaces adjacent to the front gable wall of The Barn and a further space in front of The Buttery.

Description Offered as a unique twin property portfolio these two lovely barn conversions compliment each other perfectly – whether you are seeking holiday letting accommodation which suits an all-year round tourist industry or a combination of accommodation flexible and adaptable enough to cater for extended families or small groups of friends. You may even wish to consider reserving one for your own private use and enjoyment and funding that luxury by holiday letting the other. You could live in one and care for an elderly relative in the other, or you may wish to look at linking the two internally, depending on your needs – there are so many options.

Right, get the check list ready – what would any weekend retreat or holiday let investment really need most? Views? Walks from the doorstep? Kerb appeal? A welcoming atmosphere? Bright accommodation? Easily managed gardens? Car parking? All of the above are on offer here, and then some.

The views over gently rolling fields down to a tempting glimpse of sparkling Coniston Water from the Barn are a delight, as are those to the distant fells to the north. You can step from the door of either property and within minutes be at the lapping shore of the lake whilst an admittedly more strenuous hike can take you into the very heart of the dramatic Coniston mountain range to the west – all without having to move the car from its berth.

Kerb appeal? Converted from traditional barns these stone and slate properties are eye catching and appealing in equal measure – perfect for the holiday letting market.

Both offer delightfully welcoming atmospheres, come with their own easily managed patio gardens and private car parking provisions.

A superb opportunity – come and see for yourself.
