Maulds Meaburn
Sleeps 6
Bedrooms 3
Dog Friendly
No 1 Peggies Barn is a fabulous three-bedroom stone-built barn conversion situated in the picturesque Lyvennet Valley, just 1.5 miles from both Maulds Meaburn and Kings Meaburn, 13 miles from Penrith and 10 miles from Appleby, with wonderful views of open farmland and grazing livestock.

Originally a Westmorland stone barn, the building has been sympathetically converted while still gaining many of the original features, including original wood beams and exposed stone walls, and now spans two floors, the ground floor comparing the grand double-height entrance hallway that leads off to the open plan kitchen, which is very well equipped, the living and dining area, a spectacular space for all the family to enjoy whether relaxing on the comfy sofas or sitting around the dining table for a meal. On warmer days, open the patio doors, expanding the space to the patio, complete with outdoor garden furniture. However, the large wood-burning fire will keep you all toasty warm even on chilly days.

Also on the ground floor is the utility room with a washing machine and cupboard storage, a WC and the first of three bedrooms, a double with en suite shower room comprising a walk-in shower, toilet and basin; this room is ideal for guests with limited mobility.

Upstairs (13 steps) is bedroom 2, a king-size double with en suite shower facilities and bedroom 3, the largest bedroom with a king-size double bed, wall-mounted Freeview TV and en suite facilities comparing a shower, bathtub, basin and toilet. The upstairs hallway provides additional cupboard storage if required.

Parking is available for up to two cars on the gravel driveway.

No 1 sits next door to No 2 Peggies Barn, an equally lovely property with one bedroom comprising a zip & link double bed that can be rented with No 1 if needed to extend occupancy to eight guests, but please note that while there is sufficient crockery, cutlery etc. in No 1, the dining table seat only six guests.

Maulds Meaburn

About the location

Peggies Barns lies within the rural landscapes of the Lyvennete Valley and the wider Eden Valley of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and within easy reach of the Lake District and the Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peaceful setting allows for a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings where wildlife is abundant.

Nestled within the picturesque Lyvennet Valley, Maulds Meaburn is the nearest village. This charming village boasts a rich history, an idyllic location, and a peaceful atmosphere, making it the perfect destination for a relaxing escape.

A Village Steeped in History
Maulds Meaburn's story stretches back to the 12th century when King Henry II divided the lands of Meaburn. One portion went to Sir Hugh de Morville, and the other to his sister, Maud de Veteripont. Sir Hugh's favour waned, leading the King to reclaim his land, which became known as King's Meaburn. Maud's land, however, remained hers; thus, Maulds Meaburn was born. The village has passed through various families over the centuries, adding layers to its unique heritage.

A Tranquil Escape in the Dales
Beauty lies in its serenity. The village itself is a delightful collection of traditional cottages lining the banks of the Lyvennet Beck. The surrounding landscape is a tapestry of rolling hills, lush meadows, and the ever-present charm of the Yorkshire Dales. Despite its tranquillity, Maulds Meaburn isn't isolated. The village is conveniently located just 13 miles from the bustling town of Penrith, offering a range of shops, cafes, and historical attractions. The nearby village of Appleby-in-Westmorland also provides a glimpse into the region's rich past.

Why Choose Maulds Meaburn?
Maulds Meaburn caters to guests seeking a break from the everyday hustle. Here, you can explore the charming villages, embark on scenic walks along the Lyvennet Beck, or venture further afield to discover the wonders of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are several designated public footpaths near the barns, and the stunning beauty of Tarn Moor and Great Asby Scar is close to Orton. The quiet country lanes are also perfect for cyclists or walks to the local pubs in Kings Meaburn or Crosby Ravensworth.
