About Barnside

Barnside is a gorgeous barn conversion sitting in a tranquil spot in the Cumbrian village of Gamblesby. Perfect for a romantic weekend away, this secluded holiday home boasts a four poster bed, a private patio and a contemporary open plan living space. It is located in the Eden valley, and just inside the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Guests love the peace and privacy at Barnside which enables them to truly get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.

The village of Gamblesby is characterised by a large central village green which is surrounded by 18th century red sandstone buildings. Whilst the village itself is small, there are plenty of footpaths leading you to neighbouring villages and country pubs where you can enjoy a homecooked meal and sample a pint of local ale. The Coast to Coast cycling route (C2C) passes within two miles of Barnside, and Route 68 goes past the door. As well as plenty of footpaths and cycle routes that can be explored locally, keen walkers can enjoy a section of the Pennine Way.

Whilst walking, eating and enjoying the fantastic scenery are high up on the list of things to do in this beautiful spot, there are plenty of other attractions to enjoy. The market town of Alston, with its cobbled streets and quirky shops, is just ten miles away. Keen golfers can play a round of golf on the highest course in England, enjoy a journey though the Pennines on the narrow gauge South Tyndale Railway or visit the Epiacum Roman Fort. Ten miles in the other direction you will find the historic market town of Penrith and the northern Lakes. Enjoy a day on the water at Lake Ullswater, be wowed by the magnificent waterfalls at Aira Force or visit Lowther Castle and Gardens. For those wanting to travel a little further afield, the Scottish borders, Hadrian's Wall, the Yorkshire Dales and Carlisle are all less than an hour away.

Barnside is the perfect rural retreat for couples seeking peace and tranquillity, whilst having a number of attractions and activities to explore nearby.
