The Barn in the Woods

Wrostler’s Barn

Wrostler’s Barn is a beautiful off-grid camping barn in secluded woodland, close to Coniston Water on the quieter east side of the Lake. A fantastic eco-holiday that’s remote and secluded but just a one minute walk through the woods to the lake, car park and road. The barn can be yours for mid-week, long weekend and full week breaks most of the year round. The barn sleeps a maximum of 12 people.
