Cottage Details

Lord’s Leap is a first floor apartment within a lovely barn conversion, located on the Graythwaite Estate, Ulverston in the Lake District. The accommodation inside is spacious and can accommodate up to 8 people.  A holiday on the Graythwaite Estate is a fabulous opportunity to explore the 5,000 acres of countryside upon which the Estate is located. But there are also many activities for you to enjoy too, including an indoor heated swimming pool, table tennis room, a children’s outdoor play area and a farm shop.


Lord’s Leap is accessed via a flight of 16 steps up to the apartment where all of the accommodation is then located on the first floor. 

Inside, the open plan sitting and dining space is comfortable and spacious. Overhead the ceiling is vaulted with exposed beams originating from its days as a barn. Three cosy sofas face a log-burning stove, set into a stone fireplace. There is a TV in this area too with access to Freeview, and a high-level arched window adds even more character to the space. To one side of the main sitting area is a cosy separate sofa and armchair located beneath a high-level window, a great place for relaxing with a good book. Elevated on a platform to one side of the sitting area is a discreet dining area with table and chairs for 8.

The kitchen is equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. There is access to a tumble dryer in the communal table tennis room.

The sleeping accommodation comprises 2 double bedrooms and 2 twin rooms. There are more exposed beams in the bedrooms.  One of the bedrooms is located in the eaves, so the property’s character can be seen throughout.

Lord’s Leap benefits from a family bathroom with bath, shower over, toilet and basin, as well as a shower room with additional toilet and basin.

There is also a DVD player at the property and access to WiFi. A public payphone is available in the communal courtyard.

A travel cot and highchair are available on request.

The property’s water supply comes from a private supply and is fed from a freshwater lake and treated ready for consumption. This is just part of the Estate’s long-term sustainability plan.

The property is no smoking.


The property has access to a shared patio where you will find furniture and a barbecue.
