Our four self-contained Lake District holiday cottages have been newly created within a converted barn. The cottages have been completed to a very high standard.  All are no smoking and are maintained by the owners, who live in the attached farmhouse.

The cottages are based on our family-run working poultry farm within the Lake District National Park, up a private lane,  in 200 acres of land, all with outstanding views of the surrounding hills and open countryside. We have our own beautiful tarn with a 12-man bird-watching hide.

The largest of the cottages, Ospreys Nest, sleeps up to 6 people. On the ground floor is a twin bedroom and a shower room with WC and basin. On the first floor is a double bedroom, twin bedroom, bathroom with over bath shower, WC and basin. Large open plan living/dining/kitchen area with superb views over open farmland to Skiddaw and the fells beyond.

The Otters Pocket sleeps up to 4 people. On the ground floor it has an open plan living/dining/kitchen area and storage cupboard. On the first floor there is a double bedroom, twin bedroom and bathroom with over bath shower, WC and basin.

Badgers Den sleeps up to 2 people, with zip link beds for either twin or double use. This cottage has a lovely feel from the fully open plan design. The shower room has a walk in shower, WC and basin. This cottage has been awarded Mobility Level One under the National Accessible Scheme.

New for 2013 is Squirrels Drey Cottage which sleeps 4 people in one double bedroom and one twin with bunk beds, plus bathroom with shower over the bath on the ground floor,  The first floor has an open plan living/dining room and kitchen with mezzanine floor above. This cottage has magnificent views over our Tarn.

All cottages have been furnished to a very high standard and have everything you should need during your stay. There is a communal laundry room with a washing machine, tumble dryer, internet access, payphone and local tourist information leaflets.
