About the accommodation
Enjoy the experience of life on a Cumbrian hill farm
If you’re looking for a quirky weekend away, or wanting to get stuck into a week of something radically different, we’re offering you the chance to experience life on a working farm. We're sure you'll enjoy it!
Until August 2012 the cottage was an old barn...
in which we use to store many things, from wood to hay from the rich meadows which surround the building.
The barn has been beautifully refurbished by local craftsmen, utilising only materials that are true to the area. Care has been taken to retain as many of the original features as possible; one feature in particular being an old bread oven which was used to cook food in days gone by. The rock on which our farm is situated is limestone and this features heavily in and around the house - beautifully built dry-stone walls, an internal feature wall and solid limestone tiles in the hallway and bathrooms. Solid oak has been used for the curved staircase, the gallery, the first floor and all doors.
The cottage has three bedrooms located on the ground floor, all are en-suite, have their own flatscreen TV and are furnished to the highest standards. The floor covering in the bedrooms, as you would expect, is 100% British Wool. The ground floor has under-floor heating which is controlled by our ground source heating system which also heats the water; another natural source, provided by the farms bore hole.
The first floor is completely open plan, providing lots of light and space as well as great views of the surrounding area. The kitchen island and units are locally handmade with granite worktops and have all the features that you would expect - Rangemaster cooker, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and washing machine. The kitchen leads into a secluded space, a ‘snug’ containing a sofa bed for those extra guests, and on into the main living area with a limestone fireplace and stove. Again, the furniture has been carefully chosen for your comfort, large soft sofas for those lazy days and nights, plenty of books to read and of course, a large TV.
We are located in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the stunning Eden Valley, with unspoilt landscapes of sweeping moorland views, tumbling waterfalls, rich and colourful hay meadows and an abundance of wildlife - nature at it’s very best.
Short midweek breaks and weekend breaks are also available see website for details.
