Notes on accommodation

This is a non smoking property.


 We have tried to retain the sense of being in a well-loved old family home. The furnishings are mostly oak. The sofas etc Ikea /Multi-York. The bedrooms are all in pale creams and neutral tones with colourful patchwork bedspreads over white linen. Wool carpets in all bedrooms, stairs, hallway and landings. The bathrooms all had new shower and bath fittings . The crockery is traditional period blue and white ware. The house, built over 300 years ago, is oak beamed and full of character features. This a definitely NOT a clone of every other Swedish equipped holiday cottage.

Full oil-fired central heating. Basket of logs provided on arrival, additional logs charged at cost.

Cot (bedding NOT included), high chair and stair gate available on request


Not suitable for wheelchairs. There are steps between all the ground floor rooms and on the upstairs landing. Handrails alongside stairs and steps


Private mature gardens with patio and barbecue. Large trestle table with outdoor chairs and sun-shade for al-fresco dining. Ample on site parking.


Parents / dog owners please note there is a beck running next to the cottage . Sheep are in adjoining fields so dogs MUST be kept on leads.


 The owners live on site in the adjacent converted barn

Spacious high quality traditional Westmorland farmhouse full of original character details with low ceilings, original exposed oak beams and deep window seats in very thick walls. Outside there is a beck running through the wooded garden, large patio, and fell views. There is private access, via the owner's garden, for walking on the fells behind the cottage - boots/wellies essential.
