Another fab review

"We’ve just got home from a week’s stay in The Old Grainstore and can honestly say it was the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in! 

The cottage was immaculate and so homely and cosy. Our children (4 and 2) were amazingly well catered for with a wide range of age appropriate toys, games and books and thoughtful little extras like toys in their beds. In addition to that there were stair-gates, toilet seats, a high chair and a travel cot provided. 
We didn’t have to think of anything! The hosts are lovely people who genuinely love what they do and should be exceptionally proud of the farm and cottages. The girls loved seeing the 4 week old calves and the three beautiful farm dogs, as did we! 
The cottage is a perfect base to explore the area and is exceptional value for money! Thank you so much Joanne and family, we will be back! Five stars aren’t enough!!! X

Highest quality throughout. Owners are really lovely and very friendly. Location is great with lots to do in the local area. Anyone staying here will be very impressed and have a great break."

It's a beautiful day here at Red Hall Farm and after the long Winter, it's finally time for our girls to get back out into the fields to graze for the Summer and Autumn months. Due to recent weather conditions our cows are out a little earlier than usual and as you can see from these photos - they were very excited about it!!

Proud association with Good Energy

wind turbine

Environmental issues are close to our heart here at Red Hall Farm. So when we installed our 15kw wind turbine to make the farm and holiday cottages more self sufficient, it was important for us to team up with a green energy supplier.

We chose Good Energy - and it's great to hear that they have been named the World's most ethical energy supplier for the third year running!

Beautiful location, very central (we visited Penrith, Carlisle, Gretna Green and Keswick).
The property has been converted to a high standard and beds were comfortable.
Lots of nice touches such as jam, eggs and cake upon arrival and Joanne even put the log burner on for us before we arrived so that the cottage was warmed up for us.
There is a lot of information from tourist areas locally, which is extremely helpful if you are not familiar with the area.
Lovely relaxing break, hope to visit again soon.
