Traditional Family Friendly Farmhouse cottage - sleeps 8

Overview

Property

Updated: 01-Dec-2016
4 Bedrooms with en-suite, mountain views of Great Gable

With four large double en-suite bedrooms, two wood burning stoves, a classic ‘living’ farm kitchen, separate ‘character’ dining room and a comfortable, light living room, this is a truly special place to base yourself in the Western Lake District.

You enter the house from the courtyard via a porch/boot room with plenty of space for coats, boots and walking paraphernalia. From there you enter the large well equipped traditional farm kitchen featuring wood burning cooker, with fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher, high level grill and oven with separate hob and microwave – and just to complete the picture a family sized kitchen table and chairs.

From there you move into the central stairwell that winds its way through the house, illuminated by an enormous window. The dining room is on the same level as the kitchen and is situated in the old larder and salting room – still containing the original sandstone trough that the farmers used to salt their meat.

On the first floor is the living room, with wood burning stove and deep sofas from which to enjoy the last rays of the setting sun. There is a Freeserve digital TV. This room also leads to a porch with separate access to the rear of the house where the tumble drier is kept.

Across the landing is the first bedroom, with kingsize bed where you can simply lie and watch Wasdale unfold before you. The en-suite full sized bathroom, which was the old family bathroom, has a bath with shower over, toilet and wash hand basin. Guests should be aware this is an old fashioned bathroom but has been retained by the owners as it is deemed part of the character of this old property.

The second floor contains bedrooms two and three. Bedroom two, with kingsize double, has even better views of Wasdale and an en-suite containing bath with shower over, toilet and wash hand basin. Bedroom three features an ‘Austrian Double’ bed – a super kingsize double that can ingeniously be split into 2 separate single beds. The ensuite shower room has a quadrant shower cubicle, toilet and wash hand basin.

Bedroom four occupies the entire attic space converted into a spacious room with two large velux windows bathing it in light and providing – yet again – outstanding views of Wasdale. Another ‘Austrian Double’ provides additional flexibility to the accommodation, there is a futon for occasional use, a small seating area and the en-suite bathroom contains a bath, toilet and wash hand basin.

The Farm House has a pressurised hot water system ensuring powerful showers, and oil fired central heating completes the comfort, yet the house still retains its essential character as an old Cumbrian building as many features have been retained in order not to lose the character of what is essentially a homely, spacious and relaxing house.

External

Outside there is ample off road parking and the Farm House has its own lawned area which is ideal for catching the afternoon sun. Garden furniture is available to make the most of this external space. Chairs are kept in the garden shed.

Hallflat Farm welcomes well-behaved dogs; we charge £10 a stay for each dog. The area also has a wealth of walks suitable for dogs and most of the pubs in the area are dog friendly, including our local, the Bridge Inn

Bookings

The Farm House bookings run from Friday to Friday and there is a no smoking policy. Prices are per week unless otherwise stated and include gas, electricity and bed linen but not towels. We can accommodate long weekends or mid-week breaks.

Walks

There are plenty of walks on public footpaths nearby, indeed a path crosses the garden and the field at the back of the house, this footpath goes to Hall Santon. There are many walking books kept at the house for use by the guests.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind review, we are very glad you enjoyed your stay at the farmhouse. It certainly is a special area being located so near the Scafell Peaks, and with the added bonus of the sea only a few miles away and selection of great traditional pubs. We're glad you found the house relaxing, the old-worlde charm dates back to the old pack horse days of the 19th century. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Regards Tony

Lovely location, bit of a hickledy pickledy house.....

  • 2 of 5

it's a smashing location in a beautiful and unspoilt part of the Lakes but we felt the house left something to be desired given the consistently excellent reviews....it's a bit rough around the edges, unfinished floor surfaces in kitchen, exposed copper heating pipes coming out of the floor in main bedroom, 2x2 timber battening to kitchen units, main en suite bathroom needs upgrading.........on the other hand I'm sure large families with young children ( and dogs) will love it precisely because it's not pristine and 'untouchable'.......so by all means stay there but let's not pretend it's a sophisticated top class farmhouse....

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments about your holiday in September. I agree the farmhouse is set in a strikingly beautiful and tranquil part of the Western Lake District but I’m sorry that the building did not meet your expectations. I should point out though that nowhere has it been described as a sophisticated top class farmhouse. It is clear on the website that the building is a ‘traditional family friendly farmhouse’; indeed it was built in the early part of the 19th century. Certainly it is true that it has not been over modernised or gentrified and the reason for that is to retain its old world charm, and what is essentially a warm, homely, relaxing and spacious building in the most beautiful of locations. I agree with you, the farmhouse is suitable for large families, groups of friends sharing a walking holiday, and their pets too. I take on board your comments and will rectify any areas of wear & tear where needed. Kind Regards Tony (Manager)

Lovely, warm and spacious

My family had a wonderful stay and were blessed with fantastic weather. The house is comfortable and well appointed with some lovely features. We were able to do excellent walks from the house and it is a bonus being able to walk to the local pub! Would thoroughly recommend!

Perfect walking weekend venue

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 6 friends stayed for 3 nights in early Oct. The house is large and very nicely decorated and furnished, a 3 minute walk to the local pub, and perfectly located for walking in the NW Lakes (20 min drive to Wasdale Head).

Brilliant farmhouse in a beautiful and ideal location

  • 4 of 5

The house had everything we needed, all the facilities you would expect and lots of space to eat and socialise together. Fantastic location for coast and western lakes. Would have been 5* except the 'dogs downstairs only' policy was tricky to manage with no door too keep them down there and the kitchen door had no catch. Otherwise highly recommended.

Location

From the Owner

The farmhouse provides comfortable roomy accommodation in the beautiful Wasdale Valley. Only a short walk away is The Bridge Inn, there are views of Great Gable and Scafell Pike and other mountains of the Western Lakes are nearby. The Eskdale Valley is only a short drive away. The beach at Drigg offers beautiful sand dunes and there is a wealth of other attractions such as Muncaster Castle and the Lal Ratty railway. Short breaks are available November to March, excluding Christmas and New Year, and on a last minute basis from April to October. We can also offer 2 or 3 bedroom occupancy at lower rates.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Preston at 80 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Santon Bridge at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Train : Drigg at 8 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : M6 at 80 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Santon Bridge at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Drigg at 8 Kilometres Car: recommended

The Farmhouse has stood at the entrance to the Santon Bridge hollow since the days of the old packhorse trains that used to ply their way between Whitehaven and Kendal over Styhead Pass. This fascinating traditional old building provides homely, relaxing and spacious accommodation for up to eight people – with breathtaking views of Wasdale. The building was constructed in the early part of the 19th century and retains many of its original features. There are many walks nearby, Wastwater and the Scafells are a short drive as is the sea, Muncaster Castle, the L'al Ratty railway and other attractions, but the essential tranquility of the Western Lake District is uncompromised.
