Rent a Country Cottage in Cumbria and Bide Your Time in Beautiful Barras

Barras is surrounded by the scenic Cumbrian countryside and fells. Families, walkers and cyclists enjoy the area and the hamlet is ideally placed for excursions into both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. Stay in a rented cottage for a week or a few days to have the time to get to know this lovely part of the Lake District.

For a lovely walk and an opportunity to see diverse wild flowers, orchids and wildlife, Argill Woods is a nearby nature reserve with oak and birch trees amongst others. It’s a good place to see many different birds too and you may also spot roe deer and red squirrels. Two accessible footpaths go across the reserve, which also link up with a path that circles right round the reserve. You will also see Argill Beck, pools and waterfalls. This area can be muddy, so you may need your Wellington boots and it’s also quite steep.

A moorland walk leading to Great Knipe (515m), a hill in the North Pennines, brings wonderful views over Stainmore Pass. For a walk up to the most northerly summit in the Yorkshire Dales, head for Moudy Mea. High above Ullswater, Maiden Castle is renowned for its beautiful countryside and the viewing point near Salmond’s Plantation is the recommended one when walking here. Maiden Castle is the site of a former small Roman fort and earthworks remain today.

Barras is about four miles from the village of Brough, which has regular farmers markets, pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops. The oldest parts of St. Michael’s Parish Church go back to the 12th century. It’s a fine looking church and a display there describes the local history of the area. Celebrating its 100-year anniversary in 2012, the attractive village clock tower was constructed to mark the coronation of King George V.

Families also like to explore the substantial ruins of Brough Castle, parts of which date back to around 1100. Much of the castle was lost in a fire in 1521, but restoration was carried out in the 17th century.

For more amenities, the market town of Kirkby Stephen is five miles away and is an attractive town with cobbled areas and grand historic buildings. To see local landmarks, you can walk the Town Trail. The town’s parish church is often referred to as the Cathedral of the Dales and it contains a rare 8th century ‘Loki Stone’, depicting Norse mythology.

Barras and the local vicinity has everything to keep holidaymakers entertained, with ancient history, wildlife and the great outdoors beckoning. But you can also just relax in a cosy tearoom or welcoming inn.
