Perfect family holiday
Beautiful cottages. Everything you need for the perfect family holiday. Joanne couldn?t do enough for you and makes amazing homemade bread!!

Home from home
Lovely comfortable, cosy cottage, well equipped and furnished to a high standard. The owners have thought of everything! Ideal location to explore the beautiful Lake District and situated in a lovely peaceful setting. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and Joanne the owner couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. We couldn't have been any happier with the cottage and can't recommend highly enough.

An excellent find!
We stayed here for 2 nights and we're blown away by the accommodation and also the hosts. Joanne is friendly, approachable and helpful! The Old Bothy was fantastic and the little touches made by Joanne did not go unnoticed. There were age appropriate toys left for our son which he loved. The kitchen is excellently stocked with everything you need and more! The farm is in a fantastic location close to different attractions, shops and walks. We would definitely recommend staying and hopefully will be returning in the future.

Wonderful family friendly holiday
We stayed here for our first holiday with our 11 week old baby. The accommodation was faultless - lovely spacious but cosy house, very well equipped and beautifully decorated. Joanne was a very welcoming and considerate host and the local area has glorious scenery and lots to do. Overall a wonderful holiday, I would definitely recommend staying here.

Perfect accomodation - GREAT weekend
We stayed here for a three day weekend and it was utterly perfect! Joanne was a warm host, very helpful and told us about great walks to do in the surrounding areas. Joanne was great on communication while booking, and throughout. The accomodation was extremely clean, and very comfortable (the beds were the best I've slept in!). It was very peaceful and quiet, with a lot of space for kids to play. There were baby cows, lovely sheep and two gorgeous friendly dogs, it was heaven!
