brief description of accommodation and location
OLD MILL BARN
GAMBLESBY, near PENRITH
YOU WILL FIND THAT WE HAVE BLOCKED OFF ALL DATES UP TO THE 7 AUGUST SO WE WILL NOT BE TAKING ANY NEW BOOKINGS FOR DATES BEFORE THAT. WE ARE KEEN TO AVOID BRINGING POSSIBLE INFECTION INTO OUR VILLAGE WHICH HAS A LARGE NUMBER OF OLD AND FRAIL RESIDENTS, AND HOLIDAY HOME OWNERS ARE BEING ENCOURAGED TO DO THEIR PART IN CUTTING DOWN MOVEMENT OF THE POPULATION. WE ARDENTLY HOPE THAT BY AUGUST WE WILL BE STARTING TO TRY TO LIVE AS NORMAL A LIFE AS POSSIBLE IN THIS NEW REALITY. IF YOU WISH TO BOOK FOR DATES ON 7 AUGUST OR AFTER, WE WILL OFFER WHAT WILL AMOUNT TO A PROVISIONAL BOOKING AND ASK FOR THE USUAL DEPOSIT OF £150, BUT IF THE VIRUS IS STILL VERY ACTIVE, OR IF GOVERNMENT ORDERS OR ADVICE STILL MEAN WE THINK THOSE BOOKINGS SHOULD NOT TAKE PLACE, WE WILL EITHER OFFER TO MOVE YOUR BOOKING TO ANOTHER DATE OR GIVE A FULL REFUND OF THE DEPOSIT. FOR THE SAFETY OF THOSE CLEANING THE BARN AND WASHING THE LAUNDRY WE WILL ALSO BE ALLOWING AT LEAST 3 DAYS, AND PREFERABLY A WHOLE WEEK, BETWEEN BOOKINGS TO ALLOW ANY POSSIBLE INFECTION TO NATURALLY DISSIPATE AND TO GIVE THE PREMISES AN EXTRA DEEP CLEAN BETWEEN BOOKINGS.
WE ARE TRULY SORRY FOR ANY DISAPPOINTMENT AND ARE SAD NOT TO BE MEETING NEW GUESTS, BUT HOPE YOU WILL BOOK WITH US IN THE FUTURE. PLEASE TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE IN THE MEANTIME
This beautiful converted sandstone barn provides spacious and comfortable self-catering accommodation for up to 10 people in perfect rural surroundings - a great choice for you, your family and friends to enjoy a "de-stress" holiday or short break. You will find peace and beauty in the undiscovered and unspoilt Eden Valley, and excitement nearby in the adventure capital of England - the Lake District is just half an hour away.
With 5 bedrooms - 2 double bedded and 3 twin-bedded - and lovely open plan, exposed-beam dining area and sitting room with log-burning stove, well equipped kitchen and 2 bath/shower rooms, as well as a garden with lovely views, it has all you could need for that long planned get-together to catch up and chill.
Set in a beautiful Conservation Area village, at the base of the Pennine Hills and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty it is convenient for the M6 with junction 40 only 20 minutes away, a stress-free 30 minute drive away from the Lake District, and less than an hour to Carlisle, Scotland and Hadrian's Wall, and with great on- and off-road walks and cycle rides straight from the door, there is truly something for every level of activity (or inactivity!)
We have a cot, high chair and stair gates to make life easier if you are bringing a baby or toddler, and 2 pets are welcome. There is off-road parking for 4 (or 5 small) cars at the front and a high, secluded garden at the rear looking over fields. Good WiFi connection is provided.
Short breaks are available for all dates. Special offers for last minute breaks often available - see prices.
