Conveniently accessible from the M6 motorway links and mainline rail services at nearby Oxenholme station, Potters Fell Cottage is one of an exclusive collection of three unique homes at Gilpin Bank Barn.

Sense the separation upon arrival at the Gilpin Bank Barn development, situated roughly four miles outside of the market town of Kendal, and accessed along Potters Fell Road.

Dating back to the mid 1800s, there is an a sense of remoteness and wilderness to the handful of distinguished homes at Gilpin Bank Barn, nestled on the fells and with views out to the Howgills and the Langdales.

Characterful stonework stands in sympathetic accord with the surroundings, a traditional front cover for the modern tale told within, punctuated by easy-flow, open-plan, living with all the mod cons. Reroofed, waterproofed, with new electrics and central heating and also fitted with new B4RN Wifi and cabling throughout, this home is perfectly equipped for modern living.

Park up in one of the two private spaces available. Blue slate patio and steps provide a connection to the outdoors, where a recessed glass entrance offers a sense of shelter and seclusion, stepping inside and leaving the world behind.

With the cocooning comfort of a hobbit hole and the sophisticated style of contemporary open-plan living, the modern dining-living-kitchen reveals itself.

Engineered oak flooring extends underfoot, matched by fresh white walls and ceiling. Deep blue cabinetry harmonises with off white units for a refreshing feel in the practical Atlantis kitchen workspace to the right, where a host of Neff appliances includes a double oven, microwave and induction hob, alongside a dishwasher and fridge-freezer.

Sociably open, yet zoned, there is ample space for a sofa and other furniture when it is time to relax and unwind in front of a movie, whilst a dining table would sit perfectly in front of the glass doors overlooking the handsome blue slate patio and verdant vistas.

Make your way through to the inner hallway, off which you can find the utility room, where glazed double doors open to a small, glass enclosed, stainless-steel balcony, from where you can observe the comings and goings of the world and life on the fell. Storage is plentiful, with open shelving offering useful, versatile space and allowing for the inclusion of a washer-dryer. Additional storage space can be found beneath the staircase.

An exquisitely finished oak staircase turns up to the carpeted first floor landing. Views greet the eye immediately from the doorway to the first bedroom on the left. A light and bright haven, sense the high-quality finish in the embellished curl of the black iron latches on the window, beyond which nearby nesting swallows swoop by, enriching the countryside view.

Overhead, light flourishes down from a Velux creating an airy and open feel, whilst the depth of the stone windowsill ensures the safe, solid ambience of the home is felt throughout.

Storage can be found in the solid oak built-in wardrobe, whilst refreshment awaits in the ensuite, warmed by underfloor heating, where white metro splashback tiles add a flourish of contemporary chic behind the bath and wash basin.

A second, spacious bedroom is also carpeted underfoot, with fresh white walls and amply lit by natural light flowing in through the large skylight above.

Serving the second bedroom is a contemporary shower room with wash basin, WC and shower.

Outside, the blue slate terrace sits sheltered behind a low Lakeland stone wall, offering the perfect suntrap in which to relax with a thirst-quenching drink after a day roaming the fells and footpaths.
