Dating back to the 17th Century, Kingfisher Barn enjoys an enviable position on the fringes of Staveley, a quiet Lakeland village situated between Windermere and the market town of Kendal. Popular with both walkers and cyclists, the village is also regularly frequented by those who have been recommended to visit the Mill Yard which comprises a wonderful array of outlets including Wilf’s Cafe, Hawkshead Brewery and Wheelbase.
This pretty village, surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Kentmere Valley and full of character and interest, also boasts many amenities. These include a small but well stocked supermarket, a newsagents and post office, a butchers, two pubs, a fish and chip shop, a doctors’ surgery, a pharmacy, a railway station and a regular bus service.
Kingfisher Barn looks out on to the millrace (and occasionally a Kingfisher!) and beyond to the Kentmere Valley from the Juliette balcony in the kitchen and so is ideally placed for sampling one of the many low level walks available from the door. A short drive or bus trip will give access to the higher fells. Light and airy, the property is furnished in a traditional style and in keeping with the beautiful exposed beams of this former barn.
Kingfisher Barn can also be let together with Fox Barn downstairs to sleep up to eight.
