Both cottages are equipped to a high standard and are open all year round.They are ideal for holidaymakers requiring a quiet rural location with easy access to wonderful scenery and countryside walks.Lots of ramblers and walkers (those aspecially with dogs) frequent the cottages due to their close proximitry to the western fells.

The farm is predominantly a hill farm in the Lake District, Cumbria.Most of the land is land falls in a strip between the Western fells and coast. The lower land has better producing fields, which are used to provide fodder for the farm and to fatten the stock.

The farm business does some subcontracting to neighbouring farms.We have an umbilical cord with injector system for spreading farm slurry,a slurry tanker with injector,a self propelled harvester and other machinery available for hire.

Farm walks and tours can be arranged for visiting parties (groups up to 40). Please contact us for further details.

The Farm is an hour from Junction 36 on the M6 (Kendal exit) or an hour and a half from Carlisle.
