From the rear courtyard you enter into a large boot room with plenty of space for all those bits and bobs.
From here you step down into a large farmhouse style kitchen. Very well fitted and equipped, there is a large table for occasional dining, an AGA set in the old fireplace for use in winter months, along with a huge American style fridge freezer, which will deliver endless ice for your long tall drinks.
From the kitchen you pass into the central hall and used for more formal dining. A large space with pitched and beamed ceiling, there is an elegant table, some occasional sofas and armchairs and a huge picture window, which is filled with a view of lake and mountain.
Finally there is the sitting room. Spacious but cosy, it is filled with plump, comfortable sofas and chairs set around a roaring open fire, perfect to relax and while away an evening in the company of friends and family, or sit back and watch a movie on the 40" flat screen TV.
Back to the dining room, where a winding staircase takes you down to the lower level and the long hall spanning the whole length of the building, and quite a feature in itself.
Off the hall you have four bedrooms from which to choose. There is the master bedroom with a 6’ bed and en-suite bathroom with separate shower, bath and WC. A further double, with a 5’ bed, again with en-suite bathroom with separate shower, bath and WC. Two twin bedded bedrooms, both with 3’ beds and a shared bathroom with bath, shower, basin and WC.
At the end of the hall you will find the laundry room and, finally, the snug, perfect for children with sofas, a large TV and stairs that bring you back up to the top floor into the boot room.
Surrounding Bank Barn are terraced patios and lawned areas planted with shrubs and trees. With stunning views of Ullswater and the surrounding mountains, the gardens are the perfect place for adults to relax and children to play in.
