- Rusland, EnglandThis beautiful 17th-century barn situated on a mixed working farm, is set in the peaceful surroundings of the Rusland Valley and the entrance into the holiday property is through the original great barn doorway. The sitting room has valley views from the balcony and the layout on the second floor is quite unusual. Stairs lead up to a half landing, where they divide. One stairway takes you to two bedrooms; one a double, the other, below a truss, through a 3ft high small door leads into a twin - think Alice in Wonderland. With pitched roof and oak beams it is sure to please both adults and children. The other stairway leads to a further double bedroom. To the rear you have a courtyard with private entrance and grounds which offer ample space to relax and the hot tub will provide fun and relaxation for both adults and children. The valley itself has lanes ideal for cycling and easy strolls and, all a short walk from the house, you come to a track leading through woodland and on to High Dam, a pretty tarn, with a circular route and opportunity to laze on the banks, paddle and swim. At the head of the valley is Grizedale Forest with its many trails and the Go Ape aerial walkways through the tree tops. A few miles east lies Newby Bridge, and the southern basin of Windermere. To the north are all the fells and mountains, or go south and you will discover the coastline, with its villages and walks. Shop 7 miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.£155From price per night based on 7 night stay
