About Freddy Markham

Hello. I'm Freddy Markham, and have lived in Morland, near Penrith for nearly 40 years, and my family have lived here for generations before that. I spent most of my working life running a travel clothing business I founded called Travelling Light, specialising in direct marketing. We had a mail order catalogue, nine shops around the country, and a factory in Workington where we made most of the clothes. I have four grown up children, three boys and a girl, and am now the grandfather of four small boys.

Freddy Markham purchased this house in 1877

Why Freddy Markham chose Penrith

My family bought Greengill Farm with 40 acres in 1877. It was a tenanted farm until about 1990. In 1995 we converted the main barn into a warehouse for our Travelling Light business. I came to live here in 2005, modernising the house and building an extension already called the Bower House, based on the original 16/17th century farmhouse, to take advantage of the great view to the Pennines. In 2009 I opened a small campsite in the small field, in 2012 converted the old byre into Jubilee Cottage, and in 2013 upgraded the barn to Greengill Bunk Barn. Greengill Holidays is now complete and open to visitors of all ages. Morland is well placed in Cumbria, not far from the M6 and with easy access to the Lakes, Pennines, Dales and Borders. It is a quiet refuge, and a base for adventures.

What makes this house unique

You can choose from five different properties, a house, two cottages, a bunk barn and a campsite. So you can find something suitable for each generation. Greengill is a place for the extended family, club or group. The main room in the barn is a wonderful place for a gathering and a party, and excellent value for money. Combine the bunks in the barn with tents or caravans on the campsite, and four star accommodation in the cottages. It is this flexibility that makes Greengill unique. The properties can also be combined with Morland House, the main Markham house in the village centre which sleeps up to 18 in 9 bedrooms with 6 bathrooms. See www.morlandhouse.net. Morland House is ideal on its own for family gatherings.
