A typical Lakeland bank barn,
Heaning Barn was originally one of two stone bank barns belonging to Heaning Farm, itself dating back to 1681 and originally owned by Quakers.
The stone barn is reminiscent of the 18th century style of Cumbrian bank barn and may date back to this period.
Formerly used for storing hay and cattle up until the 1980s, the barn was derelict when purchased by its current owners in 2006
Inspired by New York-based architect Dennis Wedlick, the barn’s redesign focuses on comfort and convenience. Loyalty to the vernacular style has been ensured by the local architect, William Sutherland of Ambleside. On multiple levels, opportunities are afforded to sit and admire the views – inside and out.
The concept? Quite simply put, ‘to look at lovely things in comfort’.
Drive along a quiet country lane, lined with stunning Lake District views, before arriving at Heaning Barn.
Comfortable parking for your motor lies directly in front of the barn with further private parking for up to three cars close by.
Follow the curving pathway of slate boskins, sourced from the original cattle stalls in the barn, set in a sea of local slate chippings before arriving at a custom designed and craftsman-made solid oak front door.
Inset within the oak, note the cosmic design of the bespoke stained glass. Enter into the welcoming lobby, decorated with original oak beams.
Plenty of room for removing and storing outdoor coats and boots. Underfloor heating warms the practical ceramic tiles, and spreads throughout the entirety of the barn.
Ahead, the part-glazed door offers tantalising glimpses of the delights to come; both down and upstairs.
Stepping forward onto solid oak flooring, begin by taking the architect-designed, locally-made, solid oak staircase up; each step illuminated by floor-level lighting.
Timeless oak, both antique and new, adds to the ambience throughout Heaning Barn; look out for its curves and angles in the beams, lintels, trusses, purlins, flooring, staircases, handrails and doors.
Mid-ascent, the double-height, open-plan space of the barn and its oak timbered roof space reveal themselves. Often commented on as cathedralesque, this wow-factor view is evocative to say the least.
