On the way up to Caldbeck today for a walk around `The Howk` and had to stop to take this picture of the Caldbeck fells - so dramatic - love it!!

A lovely review to share with you

04Cumbrian Hospitality at its best”

"For a Christmas family rental this was perfect. The property is exceptionally clean, well maintained and in a great location for the Borders, Lakes and Scotland. The Owners Joanne and Martin make you feel like family and included a wonderful Christmas basket on arrival. They decorated the house and even provided age specific toys and dvds for our 2 boys. These little touches made the accommodations both homely and great value. We couldn't ask for anymore and will be back!"

September view from Latrigg

This is the view of the beautiful town of Keswick on Lake Derwentwater from Latrigg. Not a bad view for the 15th September - loving this Indian Summer weather!

New grassed picnic/play area


At Red Hall Farm it`s really important to us to understand what our holiday cottages visitors feel we can do to improve their holiday experience. So as a result of customer feedback we have created a fenced, grassed, picnic/play area for our guests to take advantage of. It has been lovely to see our younger visitors taking advantage of this over the last few Summer weeks - somewhere to run around, kick a football about and a nice soft landing if they fall over!!

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.
