The picturesque Loweswater Valley

When standing at the door of Swallow Barn before you lies a moving oil painting. The view is so perfect it looks as if it were conjured up at the fingertips of an artist… but when you see the trees breathe, you know it’s real.

Swallow Barn on the C2C cycle route provides basic overnight shelter with mattresses provided and a pub serving evening meals a mile away. The barn has electricity and hot showers, a cooking area and tables with chairs are available. Bring your own stove and sleeping bag.
