Tethera is a traditional two bedroomed Westmorland barn coyly hidden down a leafy tree lined lane on the edge of the sleepy idyllic hamlet of Bampton.
The name Tethera means three and comes from Brythonic Celtic languages such as Cumbric which had died out in most of Northern England by the sixth century. They were commonly used for sheep especially in the fells of the Lake District. Yan Tan Tethera is one two three.
Inviting hallway ushers you into a beautifully presented living room with spacious dining area. Deep window recesses and open fire add to the comfort and charm of this Westmorland barn conversion.
