We have self catering for couples, families and larger groups at an imaginatively converted Cumbrian hill farm with panoramic views. There are nine four and five star 'Gold Award' cottages, with outside hot tubs, private saunas or whirlpool baths, together with free access to Cumbria’s finest membership-only leisure club.

This is a superb base for exploring the Lakes by foot, bike or car, for sampling great Cumbrian food and drink, or for getting to know Cumbrian culture and history.

We have a reputation for offering romantic anniversaries, Lake District walking breaks, and simply as a place to 'get away together'. There's an award-winning honeymoon package, indoor saunas, whirlpool baths in stunning bathrooms, hot tubs on balconies, and more. Our cottages are designed for families - lots of space, open plan flexibility and imaginatively equipped. 
Said 'The Good Holiday Cottage Guide': 'These nine lovingly cared-for cottages are within a 17th-century farmyard with panoramic views in the quieter, more northerly part of ‘the Lakes’. Keswick, Bassenthwaite Lake, Cockermouth, the coast, the Eden Valley and the Northumberland border are all within a pleasant drive. Set back from a not especially busy B-road, they are easy to find but completely rural. The cottages have won an impressive number of accolades, including Excellence in England’s Silver Award and Self-Catering Holiday of the Year from the Cumbria Tourist Board.'
