Old Farmhouse, full of character c1656 sleeping 6 in centre of village.

  • 5 of 5

The property was warm, clean and well maintained (and all light bulbs worked, most unusual in holiday lets). Cottage full of character with a lovely AGA in the kitchen, a delight to return to after a walk in the rain. Plenty of room to store our walking gear. Very convenient location, being situated only a minute from the village shop, a couple of minutes from the bus stop and within staggering distance of the Royal Oak, who serve excellent meals much needed after a day on the fells. We hardly used the car all week as many fell walks accessed directly from the cottage. A couple of days were so warm we were able to enjoy the secluded outdoors seating area upon our return. We shall hopefully return and would thoroughly recommend,

Gorgeous Property in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the farmhouse with our adult son and my parents, and it was just perfect! The property was immaculate, finished to an exceptionally high standard and the perfect location for a lake district holiday( only 10 mins by car into Keswick).

The kitchen is very welcoming with the warm arga and all the equipment you would have at home. The living room and bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable, and the courtyard garden is the perfect little sun trap (even in October!)

The added bonus of this property is the helpful, friendly owners who are on hand to assist with any questions/queries.

If you stay here book a meal at the Ivy House, definitely worth a visit.

We would definitely stay again, and may also bring other family members to stay in the adjoining properties.

Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the old farmhouse for a long weekend with some friends and Tia the springer!

Excellent accommodation, perfect for a large group.

The cottage was more than we could of hoped for, everything we needed was there,a perfect location for a weekend in the lakes. Just mind your head on the beams!! :-)

The local pubs are not great! watch out for the tumble weed as you walk in!! Also do your food shopping before you arrive unless your going to eat in Keswick every night.

Will definitely return - thank you
