Charming house in the Lake District for sale

High Barn is a converted barn just outside Ambleside in the very heart of the very beautiful Lake District National Park. The property is one of the earliest barn conversions, the conversion dating back to the 1950s. It has a sitting room, dining hall, kitchen, three bedrooms and bathroom as well as a summerhouse, informal gardens and woodland.

High Barn also has a granny annexe with a sitting room, kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom which could easily be incorporated into the main house.

To the front of the property is a well-kept lawn with a beech hedge, a low Lakeland stone wall boundary and mature planting with trees and shrubs. There is also a gently sloping lawn to the rear with a seating terrace, mature planting and views across open fields to Wansfell. In total the property comes in around 2.5 acres and benefits from some astounding views, and an unrivalled location.

High Barn is situated just over a mile outside Ambleside – up a steep walk locally referred to as ‘the struggle’ – in the Lake District. It’s a popular base for walkers and climbers and offers a wide range of amenities. The train service departs from Windermere some four miles distant and an even more comprehensive range of services is available from Kendal, 13 miles away.

The guide price is £750,000. For further information please contact Savills on 01904 617 820 or visit
