Stay information

We hope the following information will be helpful to you before you come to stay at Flynne’s Barn.

The Barn Set Up

You will see from our website that Flynne’s Barn is open plan in design. Check out our fantastic 3D model of the barn for a full walk through.

We like to think of it as a very comfortable camping barn. The toilets and showers are situated on the ground floor next to the entrance and boot room – they are both fully accessible. There are also two toilets upstairs by the sleeping areas.

Downstairs the living room and kitchen are open plan and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped with a microwave, an induction range cooker, sizeable fridge and a dishwasher. All crockery, cutlery and cookware are provided. We also keep some basic cooking ingredients in the cupboard too.

Sleeping arrangements

The main barn can sleep up to 14 people. There are 13 single beds and 1 double bed. The top floor is arranged into 2 sleeping areas which give off the central area. There’s a walkway to connect them.

Number of guests

Heating

Flynne’s Barn has underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and radiators upstairs. This is powered by an air source system. We can adjust temperatures if needed. There’s a wood burner in the central area which really pumps out the heat. Kiln dried wood is provided for this.

Phone and Wi-Fi

There is NO MOBILE SIGNAL in the valley. We do have Wi-Fi in the barn so you can make WhatsApp or internet phone calls.

Fire Safety and First Aid

The barn is equipped with water hydrant extinguishers on each level and the kitchen areas each have foam extinguishers and fire blankets. There’s a First Aid Kit & Burns Kit situated in the Boot Room and small kitchen.

Upstairs there are fire escapes at each end of the building. These are indicated by green exit signs which illuminate.

Outside

There’s a large terrace and picnic benches in the garden next to the barn. The fields surrounding the barn are for you to enjoy. You just need to remember to close the gates for the livestock. There’s also an area for a campfire.

Kit List

Whilst we very much hope the sun shines for you during your stay, it’s important to remember that it can be very wet in the Lake District.

Here are some pointers for what to pack:

  • FOOTWEAR– bring trainers (not your best new ones!) and walking boots. If you have wellies bring them! Remember we’re on a farm so it can be muddy.
  • Waterproofs– jacket with hood and waterproof trousers if you have them. We do have some spares here if needed.
  • Warm, comfortable clothing– trackies, combats, cargo pants, leggings are better than jeans. Fleece tops and layers work well in cold weather.
  • Towel
  • Socks– bring plenty and a pair of slippers for the barn.
  • Warm hat & gloves or a sun hat & sun cream– depending on time of year.
  • Small rucksack & water bottle– for outings.
