The Mistal is part of a beautiful barn conversion close to the southern shores of Lake Windermere. The high vaulted ceiling with original beams give an authentic cottage feeling with views across the local countryside.

The space
The Mistal is the larger of two properties created from a historic 16th century barn in the rolling countryside of the south Lake District. The superb barn conversion carefully incorporates many original and characterful features with the living accommodation arranged on the first floor offering incredible views of the beautiful local countryside. The bright and airy open plan living/dining/kitchen is a fantastic place to relax and dine after a day out walking in the Lakes.

The well equipped kitchen includes a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, electric oven, hob and plenty of cupboard space. The generous family dining table is the ideal place to plan your day over breakfast or to enjoy a family dinner in the evening.

On the lower ground floor a dual aspect king size room and a twin bed room offers the perfect family arrangement. The modern bathroom has a large walk in shower, perfect to start your day refreshed and ready. The property also benefits from an additional WC for those busy times of day.

Outside, the Mistal benefits from a small patio area with picnic table.

Where you’ll be

Newby Bridge, England, United Kingdom

The southern end of Lake Windermere is renowned for its peaceful atmosphere, being much quieter than the busier Lake District holiday destinations further up the lake. However, you're very close to the hamlet of Lakeside and Lakeside Pier, where the famous Lake Windermere steamers depart regularly to Bowness and Ambleside - a wonderful way to explore these areas without driving.

There are some lovely walks in the area, such as Wainwright's Finsthwaite Heights route from Newby Bridge. The route approaches High Dam - a picturesque tarn that you might just have to yourselves on quieter days. You'll also find several Lake District family attractions within easy reach. Also at Lakeside is the Lakes Aquarium - a fresh water aquarium displaying local wildlife. The Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway offers an opportunity to take a short trip on a restored traditional steam train.

Lake District historic sites such as Holker Hall and Gardens, Cartmel Priory, Stott Park Bobbin Mill, Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall are all within easy reach by car, with no need to navigate through busy tourist areas.

This unspoilt medieval village of Cartmel is only a five minute drive away, situated in one of England's most outstanding areas of natural beauty. Offering stunning views of the South Lakeland District fells and countryside, Cartmel has grown up around its famous 12th Century medieval Priory Church. It is a special place where ancient history and tradition mingle effortlessly with the present day.

Although steeped in history, Cartmel offers today's visitors many modern surprises in the form of fine quality attractions, shops, a wide variety of traditional Lakeland inns and cutting edge gourmet restaurants including the internationally acclaimed Michelin Star restaurant, L'Enclume. Around the village square you will discover a delightful assortment of genuine 16th - 18th century buildings.

All this and the famous Cartmel racecourse providing national hunt racing in its most original format is just off the centre of the village square. With its party crowds and funfair, Cartmel rekindles the social gathering tradition of the original steeple to steeple chases.
