About Mrs Gillian Stuart

Duncan was born in Threlkeld & Gillian in Newlands. Duncan is a builder by trade and I worked on the family dairy & sheep farm before raising our daughter & son, helping on building projects then running the holiday lets at Bram Cragg from 1993. Duncan, since fell running, is a keen mountain biker a sport that has taken our family all over the UK. Gillian has been taking part in local dog agility events since 2006.

Any spare time and we walk the fell tops we have missed with our dogs & family.

Mrs Gillian Stuart purchased this chalet in 1993

Why Mrs Gillian Stuart chose England

Bram Cragg Farm being owned & loved by Gillians granparents since 1974 and has been in our ownership from 2008. We renovated & developed it until 2014 with Duncan using his 35 years of building expertise & family help to make it the holiday choice of many returning guests. You can;t help but fall in love with the setting of Bram Cragg against the fells in a sceinic valley. The 50 acre of land is now stocked with our neighbourghs quality limousan breeding beef and breeding sheep from April to October and we maintain the land all the year round.

What makes this chalet unique

Bram Cragg Farm looks unchanged with the oldest part dating from 1688. Buildings were added as dairy & sheep farming grew and mining, railways and reservoirs expanded the population. We have been allowed to develop these to provide holiday accommodation with lovely views and we replaced two existing static caravans with two larger modern lodges.

These have more comfort and space for up to four guests, more privercy but with open unrestricted views of fells & fields.

A great lodge on a quiet secluded farm with the best views!

  • 4 of 5

This lodge was fantastic. Beautifully furnished and maintained, very clean and well equipped. Gillian was very welcoming and friendly and made sure we had everything we would need including milk and butter. A surprisingly well stocked lodge! With plenty of windows to enjoy the stunning views and a playing field with a swing and ball games we were all just as happy to stay in as to go out. Although it's location meant lots of fantastic walks were not far away and the information at the lodge made choosing activities very easy. A great place ...we will definatly be back.

A perfect place.

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge was perfect in every way and plenty of space for a family of 4. The location was idyllic, perfect for nature lovers and anyone wanting a break enjoying peace and breathtaking views. The two dogs were a hit with the boys and there is a recreational area on the farm. Gill was very welcoming and we enjoyed the eggs. Would thoroughly recommend.
