Hilltoft Barn is a charming two bedroom converted bank barn located in the highly desirable village of Dockray in the northern Lake District National Park, just over one mile from the shores of Ullswater.
The barn is presently a successful holiday let and would also make an ideal second home, situated in an idyllic Lakeland location, while being accessible from national transport links.
The barn was converted in 2007 and is beautifully presented throughout, exposed oak timbers and slate effect and oak flooring and a luxurious shower room. The accommodation is set around a magnificent vaulted living space with staircase leading up to the galleried bedroom. Sliding doors open onto a wonderful south-west facing patio garden, ideal for relaxing and dining, while taking in the superb views of the surrounding countryside and Gowbarrow Fell. Hilltoft is one of two converted barns sharing a gated courtyard with individual parking areas and gardens.
Dockray is a quintessential Lakeland village in the idyllic Matterdale Valley, set on the banks of Aira Beck and surrounded by breathtaking scenery. There is a wealth of outdoor pursuits on the doorstep, including hiking, cycling and horse riding and Ullswater is a short distance away with a number of marinas and yachts clubs.
There is a well reputed hotel/restaurant in the village and an excellent choice of lakeside hotels, bars, shops and leisure facilities nearby in the village of Glenridding. Dockray is conveniently located between Ullswater and the A66, which offers easy access to the M6 and the market towns of Keswick and Penrith, with a West Coast Main Line train station.
