Birthday holiday
We have stayed at all the cottages at Wydon Farm over the years. We chose Poppy for my birthday being in June you get your own private garden. The lounge is comfortable light and airy with views to the garden and sheep graze the fellside . The kitchen looks out into the garden which has bird feeders with numerous birds visiting. Its very well equipped with all you need . The bedroom is spacious and the bed is new and lovely and comfortable and the window looks out to Blencathra . Fabulous to watch the sunset. There are two fabulous pubs within a short walk both do great food . The owers of the cottages are friendly and helpful nothing is ever to much trouble but at the same time should you wish to hide away you can do just that . Milk wine and biscuits on arrival is a lovely touch. There are magazines to read and plenty of information about the area. The laundry room also has maps and books to borrow and has a large freezer . Parking is in the yard by the cottages which has lighting and there are outside lights on the cottage. The roads leading into the lake's are quick and easy to get to . We had a fantastic holiday cosy and warm despite the lake's weather conditions being wet . Will definitely recommend and return ?

Fantastic holiday accommodation
Just returned from a thoroughly enjoyable week at Poppy Cottage, very comfortable accommodation in truly beautiful surroundings. David and Moira were very welcoming and we have booked again for next summer :-)

Wonderful place to stay
Had a fantastic week, (last week in August), everything about our stay was superb. David & Moira have put so much into making it special for their guests, including a bottle of wine and milk on arrival. Food can be bought at the local farm shop which is excellent, and there is everything in the cottage for cooking. There are also a couple of pubs nearby. The bed was very comfortable. We found it a great place for exploring the lakes, as its just off the A66. I would highly recommend !

Thought of everything!!
Stayed here the last weekend of February 2014 and my wife and I had a great time. The cottage is beautifully clean and there are lots of nice touches (bottles of wine and milk awaiting you). The cottage is ideally located just off the A66 and is handy for Penrith, Keswick and Ullswater. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend and will definitely be back.

Beautiful cottage we took things along with us because it was self catering & needed nothing everything was supplied even a bottle of milk& wine in the fridge.Would recommend to anyone.
