The Farmer’s Barn

The Farmer’s Barn is our luxury no-frills self-catering hostel perfect for solo and budget conscious travellers looking to explore the Lake District.

Situated above our vibrant Café, there are four individual rooms, each with their own unique character and different amenities. Thoughtfully decorated with original art and crafts from Grizedale Arts’ collection, guests can choose one of two single rooms with shared bathroom facilities, or a single ensuite or double ensuite room.

There is a cosy communal dining area where you can socialise with other guests, read, or play some of our vintage board games. The adjacent kitchen is well equipped with everything you’ll need to make hearty holiday food easily. There is a shared fridge freezer to store food and a dishwasher so you don’t even need to do your dishes.

All our guests are welcome to enjoy the inn’s outdoor spaces and can expect a warm welcome when they venture downstairs.
