Glen Garth House is in Barrow-in-Furness, a coastal and historic part of Cumbria. Located close to the centre of Barrow, there is easy access to shops, local amenities and public transport. The property’s traditional Edwardian architecture has been conserved whilst renovating the property which now consists of 17 bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom and ample communal spaces.
