Spring is Here!


Spring is here at last and we have lots of young calves on the farm - and also 3 pairs of adorable twin lambs from the sheep that we keep over the Winter months. These little cuties are right next door to the holiday cottages.

Cumbria is open for business

open for business

We just wanted to say a big thank you to all our past guests who have been in touch following the recent Storm Desmond.

We are all fine thank you. It was an extraordinarily wet and windy weekend, but in our area, things have not really been affected by the weather, a bit of flooding on some roads, but nothing major. The power remained on and our holiday cottage guests were still getting out and about. We are lucky to have the benefits of being on high ground, and not close to any main rivers, so we have never had any flooding issues to worry about thankfully.

The worst hit areas have been in Carlisle, Cockermouth and Keswick, all of which are some miles from us.The community spirit shown across these areas in recent days is truly remarkable. There are many parts of Cumbria which haven't been affected and the areas that have have been through this before and they will bounce back quickly. Shops in Kesiwck and Cockermouth are reopening already and we all want to share this beautiful place with all who choose to come here and see it for themselves.

Rare bird spotted


This female Black Redstart was spotted on the holiday cottages roof on October 30th by Martin.

The Black Redstart is a very rare bird that is only spotted 2 or 3 times a year in Cumbria, so it was a real privelidge to be able to see this bird. Luckily our holiday cottage guests, who are keen bird spotters, were also able to enjoy this sight and take some photos.

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.
