Bield was built in the 1920s for the artist Ann Macbeth. It
is a detached house sleeping 8 persons, in a spectacular location
(see panorama photo above) sitting high above the beautiful
village of Hartsop at the foot of the Kirkstone Pass. The house
and garden have superb views of Brotherswater, the fells around
and Ullswater in the distance.
warm and cosy house was recently refurbished to a very
high standard. The house is located at the end of a
secluded track which winds it's way out of the back
and high above Hartsop.
house is an excellent base from which to walk, around
Angle Tarn, on to the High Street ridge, or over to
Fairfield and St Sunday Crag. Also don't miss a cruise
on beautiful Ullswater where you can take a steamer
ride to Howtown with a walk back along the east side
of the lake, or spend a full day sailing up to Pooley
Bridge for lunch in one of the many local pubs or cafés.
Glenridding and Patterdale make good bases with shops
for daily supplies, outdoor equipment and several pubs
and eating places. The nearest shops can be found in
Patterdale - it has an excellent post office that sells
newspapers and home made bread amongst other things.
The house is entered via the newly
built sun porch, with plenty of room for all your outdoor gear.
A glazed door leads to the dining area, which take in the spectacular
view over Brotherswater, and the newly fitted kitchen. Walk-in
utility room with laundry facilities. Attractive sitting room
with log burner and fine views. There are two good double bedrooms
on the ground floor, one with a king-sized bed and one with
a double bed, and a new bathroom with large shower, basin and
from the house
you will find three further bedrooms - two generous singles,
and an interestingly shaped twin which was formerly the artist
studio. Second bathroom with bath, basin and wc. Good distant
views from all the main windows. The house is comfortable,
newly decorated and equipped throughout with solid wood floors
and rugs. Period features, like original fireplaces, have
been retained throughout.
There is a lovely rocky hillside
garden with wild flowers and mature trees which children will
love as a hide-out. It is steep in places and very young children
will need to be supervised. Garden furniture is provided for
outside dining. Parking for two or three cars in the drive
