The Fold at Hallin Bank - Lake District Holiday Accommodation for 2 people

The Fold has its own entrance from the lane outside Hallin Bank. You enter directly into the kitchen/diner, which has an area for coats and boots. The kitchen is newly re-furbished and contains table and chairs, electric cooker, under-worktop fridge with large ice-box, microwave, kettle, toaster, ample kitchen and dining equipment housed in a range of new kitchen cupboards. The downstairs bathroom, also recently renovated, has a large shower and a Miele washing machine.

Stairs rise from the kitchen into the large loft bedroom. This contains a five foot double bed and a single bed. It is suitable either for a couple or for two people sleeping separately.

The main room on the ground floor is the living room, approximately 6 x 4 metres. At one end is a log-burning stove with comfortable furniture around it and TV/DVD. At the other end is a sofa and other furniture on a raised area that can be curtained off. The floor level windows in this room are a curiosity: they were once little doorways for sheep and pigs. A garden door opens on to a terrace with panoramic views over the valley and opportunity to observe the local wild life at close range.

Outside, you can descend from the terrace into the one-time orchard where there is a further level area for sitting out, and from there into our field below the house and to Martindale beck. The fields above the house belong to us, too, and you can walk through them up to the open fellside. As with many Lakeland farmhouses, a public footpath runs past the buildings on the upper side but it is not intrusive since the buildings 'face' the other way.
