Castle Court is a magnificent barn of great character. It is a traditional Westmorland Bank Barn still retaining many of its original features and is furnished with antique furniture.
The dining hall has a baronial feel to it with the dining table seating 12. It offers a wonderful setting for lunch and dinners.
The drawing room is tranquil with cosy sofas and armchairs, wide screen TV, video and DVD, CD/radio all surrounding a large log fire place. A stone mullion window looks out over a wonderful view.
All bedrooms are comfortable, each with a private bathroom or shower room. All rooms have Wi Fi and tea/coffee making facilities.
There is a large area of grass for outdoor relaxation with views over the eastern Lakeland fells, the Eden Valley and the North Pennines. Enjoy the views and wild life.
