Rusby Barn

A delightful barn conversion situated on the outskirts of Ousby, close to the pretty Cumbrian village of Melmerby. This cottage is perfect for family and friends looking to stay in this stunning area on the edge of the Pennines and close to both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District National Park. This quality barn conversion has been refurbished to a superb standard with beams, Kirkstone slate floors, en-suite bathrooms and even has underfloor heating at an ambient temperature powered by an air-source heat pump for your comfort. Not forgetting there is also a woodburner to enjoy on cool nights after a day spent exploring this fantastic area. Providing fantastic accommodation, this quality barn conversion has been thoughtfully designed to combine character with modern comforts with TVs in the bedrooms, contemporary lighting and a well-equipped kitchen. The property takes full advantage of its picturesque location as fantastic countryside and fell views are visible from every window. On warm days why not step outside on the patio and enjoy an alfresco meal or your favourite drink with the Pennines or sunset as your backdrop. Ousby itself offers a pub whilst close by Melmerby also has pubs and an award-winning tea room, bakery and a village shop. This part of Cumbria has some beautiful villages to explore with Langwathby and Lazonby with its summer open air swimming pool close by. The area is a joy for walkers and cyclists and why not try a different mode of transport and hop on the Carlisle to Settle railway just a few miles away and discover some of Yorkshire. Pooley Bridge on Ullswater with its historic steamer is just 25 minutes away and Keswick is 35 minutes so plenty of exploring awaits you in this striking region.
