The village of Braithwaite has the best of both worlds - a quiet, safe, interesting village, where there are a choice of 4 village pubs to eat and drink -or if you want more choice Keswick is only 2 miles.
The area is a haven for walkers and Braithwaite is overlooked by the stunning Coledale Horseshoe - a magnificent walk with amazing views
Another historical Cumbrian town is Cockermouth, only twelve miles West of Braithwaite. Birthplace of the poet Wordsworth, Cockermouth is also home to the famous Jennings Brewery (where tours are available!)
Driving over Whinlatter Pass takes you to Lorton Valley, a stunning area which leads you to Crummock water, Loweswater and Buttermere . From Buttermere you can head either over Newlands Pass into Newlands valley or Honister Pass into Borrowdale valley, both which have tremendous views.
Other nearby recreational interests include the Keswick Golf Club (6 miles) and sailing on Derwentwater or Bassenthwaite (1 mile)
Keswick Pencil Museum , Go-Ape and Whinlatter forest are all with 2.5 miles

About Mrs Jenny Clark
The Barn has been in the family for generations as a working farm and once it was no longer viable to farm in the village , my husband undertook to renovate the barn and took 3 years to turn it into a modern day house, which has a cosy friendly feel .
Mrs Jenny Clark purchased this barn in 1994
Why Mrs Jenny Clark chose Braithwaite
The Barn has a perfect location in the heart of the quiet village of Braithwaite and it was oozing with character, it is a perfect base for guests to explore the tranquil enviroment of the Northen Lake district and yes I am biased it is definately the most beautiful part of the Lakes - a hidden gem ! We wanted to retain as many original features as possible , such as the oak beams , the large Barn doors (now windows) and the stone archway in the pretty lilac double room. There are always improvements that we would like to do , and as soon as one project is over , another idea comes to mind!
What makes this barn unique
This cottage has a delightful location in the heart of the quiet village of Braithwaite , making it a superb base for walkers , cyclists and Sight seers alike . Whinlatter forest is also only a 15 minute walk, as is the picturesque market town of Keswick and Derwentwater lake . Looking out of the Lounge and Upstairs bedroom windows you see the majestic Skiddaw mountain range , which looks different every minute of the day with the rays of sunlight on it or snow capping .
