Homely and lots of character, great location

We received a lovely welcome and we knew we could always get the owners help if needed despite being a busy farm and campsite. The home was lovely, it had lots of character and rustic yet the facilities that make it a comfortable home. We loved being in the countryside, it was quiet yet not too far from nearby towns, markets and superstores. If you love to walk and be outside you are near some of the loveliest scenery and views in the Lake District. If you like farmyard animals you have them right on your doorstep. We loved being on a working farm and near to places of interest. We found the kitchen to be quite small and it was a bit inconvenient to have to use the paid for laundry facilities for the campsite rather than having facilities in the home. This however would not put us off staying again.

We stayed for a long weekend, 17th April. Stunning location and views of Hellvelyn, with easy access to both Keswick, Penrith and Glenridding. The cottage was great for the 8 of us that stayed, allowing both communal and individual space. Wood Burners are fantastic and a real treat after a days walking. It's a shame the Kitchen was so small for up to 10 people and the accommodation needs more showers. All bathrooms have baths, but only 1 has a shower. Some of the proprietors could have been a little more friendly too ! Overall, very good
