The Owl Barn at Hawes Farm.
A secluded holiday cottage for
two in the Lake District.

" We loved the comfy bed, the log fire and the welcoming flowers. Fell asleep on St Bees beach and got sunburnt (in April!!)"

We have posted lots of pictures here of the interior
of the cottage so that you can see each room clearly.
Just contact us if we can help with any further details.

The "Owl Barn" is a two-person holiday let at Hawes Farm, which is no longer a working farm. Set in countryside, in a hollow with a stream, the farm stands on it's own, along a no-through minor road. Sarah and Jon, who let the Owl Barn, live in the farmhouse and there are no neighbours. There are walks from the door and the whole of the quiet North West side of the Lakes to explore.

The cottage is well equipped, with central heating, a washing machine and a good modern kitchen. There is a large comfortable living area, with wooden beams, views of the garden, the fields and the fells. In one corner is a wood-burning stove which adds to the cosiness in winter. We supply a barrow load of logs, which is plenty for several evenings. We can supply extra logs at a small charge. There is a double bedroom, a bathroom (a proper bath with a good shower over it), and a private garden with barbecue. We cannot receive terrestrial TV here, but there is a Blu-Ray/DVD player and of course. internet access. There is also a CD player/radio, and plenty of books about the area plus maps. There are local pubs/restaurants with good food, Ennerdale Lake is five minutes by car or half an hour by footpath. There is plenty of information in the cottage about local attractions, lots of leaflets and an extensive visitors book so that you can see what others have enjoyed (or not enjoyed!). There are also route cards and maps for many of our favourite walks and one or two lovely spots in our own fields to sit and drink coffee or wine.

We try and provide all the basic things, and include them in the price, specifically:

Arrival: We always have the cottage ready by 15:00. By all means arrive earlier to drop off luggage and have a cup of tea - we have often finished cleaning by 13:00 in any case. And, you can arrive as late as you wish, we will just leave keys out. Come to the farmhouse front door.

Departure: is by 10:00 please, unless you have made a specific arrangement with us, which we can often accommodate.

PLEASE NOTE: no smoking inside the cottage, and no pets please.
