Lovely walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep, whilst Hawkshead lies 1 mile distant and is well served by a number of pubs and shops.

The yard is shared with two other properties...

Scenery magnificent. Wary Castle was a rip off but Lakeland Motor Museum was well worth a visit. Wrynose and Hardnott Passes are not for the timid!

We had a perfect weekend in a beautiful location and house. It had everything you needed for a weekend away, our only wish was that we were there to enjoy it for longer. Breakfast and dinner were spent taking in the breathtaking views that surrounded the house. The layout of the house works so well, it has a lovely feel...

About the neighborhood
The charming hamlet of Outgate is the setting for this delightful barn complete with traditional Lakeland inn serving real ales and bar meals. For fine dining, the famous Drunken Duck Inn is less than a mile away, with its own micro-brewery on site. Picturesque Hawkshead, with its numerous Inns and shops is a delightful half hour stroll across the fields, or a short 5 minute drive away and bustling Ambleside is approximately 4 miles away with numerous Inns, shops and restaurants to choose from.
Car recommended
How to get there
Railway: Windemere: 9.3 mi
The address is Tock How View, Birkwray Farmyard, Outgate. LA22 0NH.
As you arrive in Outgate, from Ambleside, drive slowly past the Outgate Inn on your left, up a hill and turn left immediately before a house called Kitty Parrock down a narrow lane. Follow the lane into the farmyard and our house is the one at the bottom on the right. There is parking for 2 cars only at the bottom of the yard next to the house.
Please take a torch if arriving in the dark!
