You’ve set the lighting, chosen your soundtrack, bagged your spot and now all you need to do is contemplate those glorious Lakeland and fell views. That’s you, every single day on your ultimate holiday retreat.

Ullswater luxury

As you draw up to this very special spot on Ullswater, you know you’re about to start an extraordinarily special holiday. Your home is a 17th-century barn whose conversion surely ranks among the most tasteful and stunning anywhere. Add in your location – one of the loveliest lakes in England, backed by those iconic Cumbrian fells, which sits literally on your doorstep - and you may need to lift a jaw or two from the floor.

Take a moment to take in those views, glorious at any time of year and best of all, yours to enjoy from every corner of your holiday home. Step inside to a light and airy space with original beams, stone features and some cute nook windows. Although rest assured, this barn might date back centuries, but the fittings are ultra-contemporary.

Set the mood with the lighting, pick your tune on the integrated sound system and then explore. Spoilt for choice, you can kick back and relax in the uber comfy sitting areas, placed handily so you can all come together or have some me-time on your own. Check out those views again, that lake on your horizon twinkling in the light with the fells beyond calls you to play and calls you to repose depending on your mood.

Flow-through into your oh-so modern kitchen, stunning in sleek grey and white with integrated appliances. Creating a little something to nibble on is a breeze here and even easier if you go for the optional concierge service. Did someone say 'private chef'?

Whether you arrived by car, helicopter or boat (yes, there’s a private helipad and jetty), you’ll have noticed the big estate, all 26 acres of it. Including, the treasure of treasures, your very own lake shoreline. Just yours to enjoy. And if (and this is a big if), you venture beyond the village of Glenridding, the famous Aira Force waterfalls and an epic steamboat trip of Ullswater beckon. Lakeland luxury holiday homes surely don’t get better than this.
