Brackenber Byre is a cosy Dales cabin with private garden & camp fire. Stay safe in your own private bubble. No WiFi...sorry!

Enjoy the log fire, deep bath, hammock & HiFi speaker. Dog sitting is available.

The Byre is in the beautiful landscape of the Westmorland Dales & the ideal location for biking, walking, photos, outdoor cooking & chilling!

The Byre sleeps 2 in a double, heated by a log burner, has a tiny kitchen, a bath and WC. 1 car space. 1 pet allowed.

The space
A stay in the Byre is an opportunity for you to completely escape the overload of daily life, so it has no WiFi!

The Byre may be up to 250 years old and was used to keep farm animals. Now it is a cosy cabin but retains many of its original features such as the wobbly walls and oak roof beams.

The Byre has parking for one car right outside and is separate from the main farm house, so you have your own private entry door. The porch area is a good place for hanging wet kit as the stone floor has a drain.

All the windows have locally made oak sills with a waney edge, a charming feature. The floor is reclaimed vintage pine. The double bed is hand made by a local carpenter as are the oak window frames. The stained glass window in the WC is also made by a local craftsman.

The bed sheets are 100% cotton, sateen weave and all the bedding and towels are from Christy. All bedding and a set of towels are included.

In the centre of the Byre is a circular log burner with all round glazing so the flames can be seen from all parts of the space. The log burner is the only form of room heating but once its going the Byre warms up very quickly. Next to it is a table and two cosy chairs.

The kitchen area is very small and has a microwave, toaster, kettle, sink and a small fridge. The Byre includes utensils, cutlery and towels.

At the opposite end to the bed is a luxury deep bath with a shower tap. Piping hot water is available on demand via the exterior gas boiler. All you do is turn the tap to the left.

In the roof is a Velux window which provides a lovely view of the surrounding tree tops from the bath and allows in lots of extra light. It has a blackout blind as do the main windows and door.

Outside you have your own section of private garden in which you can have a camp fire or relax in the hammock. The garden is full of wildlife and the surrounding fields are most interesting during lambing time which starts about the 17 March. After lambing the wild flowers grow till the grass is cut on about the 10 July. All the sheep and cows and sometimes the horses and a donkey are allowed back in soon after.

During clear nights the star gazing here is very good. Parking for 1 car right next to the Byre. Only 1 pet allowed.

My aim is to provide a unique visitor experience and I have many plans to expand my offering. I also want my guests to feel relaxed and at home, to want for nothing and to leave feeling rested and inspired.

During your stay

Your host, Jon, is very happy to help you with many aspects of your holiday from bike hire to arranging a local taxi. If guests require a meet and greet then that’s great. Otherwise we can leave the place unlocked for you and you figure it out for yourself.
