About the inside
Please note, Raydale Barn is totally off-grid, therefore it does NOT have electricity.
If you like what you read below, please see our RECOMMENDED KIT LIST.
Raydale Barn has ample space for large parties of people, of up to 16. We have two good size upstairs bedrooms, both sleeping about eight. The beds are large platform-style sleeping areas, favoured by both large and small groups. Both bedrooms have a wide window, with views across to Wether Fell and Knight’s Close.
Upstairs there are two shower rooms and two toilet rooms with sinks.
Downstairs, the barn has a spacious entrance hall with benches and cubby holes and pegs for outdoor clothing. There is also a toilet and sink downstairs.
The main living area comprises of one large, open-plan, space for communal living. There is a map-reading table, comfortable sofas and a large wood burning stove to keep the place cosy. From this room it’s possible to throw open a shuttered glass door to reveal more light and access to the land in front of the barn.
The kitchen and dining area are downstairs – old cow stalls have been left in situ to provide rustic seating at the kitchen area. The kitchen has a large catering gas cooker, sink with hot and cold water and all the crockery, cutlery, pans and kitchen utensils that groups will need.
Other things to note
We happily accept dogs, but we require prior knowledge. If the barn has multiple occupancy, we will generally say no to dogs. We ask that dogs are kept on a lead at all times as there will be livestock in the fields surrounding the barn.
The Vodafone signal comes and goes, and 3G is possible from the top of the field.
It’s also possible to accommodate two separate groups, with their own separate bedrooms, but sharing a main living area and kitchen.
