About this listing
Built in 1717 the lodge has a rich history, a typical Lakeland stone barn converted into a family home with two guest rooms. It hosts typical scenery and a warm welcome no matter what time of year you choose to stay with us.
Set on a working farm, The Lodge is set in the heart of the Lake District National Park with views over fields and away from the busy tourist areas, but close enough to gain easy access to all the amenities you would expect from a holiday destination. If you want to relax and enjoy the piece and quiet of the countryside but fancy a trip to town or the local pub then this is the place.
We have two guest bedrooms each with a double bed and sharing a guest bathroom. Each room is well equipped for your stay. You will find complimentary toiletries, wifi access(you will need the code), tea and coffee facilities, hair dryer and TV as well as adequate storage for your needs. In summer you may take your breakfast on the balcony overlooking the garden and apple trees, bring a bottle of wine and watch the stars in the evening.
There is a guest dining area for breakfast with log burning fire for the colder mornings.
While you stay with us you will be guests in our home and we trust you will enjoy what we are able to offer you.
Interaction with guests
The Lodge is our home and our base for running the family farm so we will be around most of the day. If not in the house then in the farm areas. We do like to welcome our guests to the Lodge and like an estimated time for your arrival. If we can help with planning any trips or deciding which sites to see we are more than happy to discuss local attractions with you.
Other things to note
The Lodge is a no smoking house but you may smoke on the balcony or outside, please dispose of your cigarette ends correctly, we can provide an ashtray.
As this is our home too we do expect you to respect this fact while you stay with us. We will do our very best to make your stay a comfortable one.
Please enjoy yourselves but remember other guests may be staying as well and they will want to enjoy their holiday too.
We do allow very well behaved dogs, but not on the beds. We have towels to dry them with if necessary, please ask if you need some. We also have our own dog.
As we are a working farm we have a number of animals in close proximity and all visiting dogs must be kept on a lead.
Please follow the country code and be mindful of the beautiful area we are in.
As we welcome you in to our home we ask that you treat it with respect and enjoy your stay.
We are strictly a non smoking house.
Dogs are welcome by arrangement, but we ask that they do not sleep on the beds and are fully house trained, they must be under control at all times as we are a working farm.
Please note that on the morning of departure breakfast must be taken by 9am and rooms vacated by 10am.

Living on a working farm I appreciate how lucky I am to live in the Cumbrian countryside. I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. My spare time is spent with my horses, I have competed to a reasonably high level and and have bred my current competition horse. I love entertaining with friends and my partner Mark (who is the farmer) and enjoy meals out at some of the many pubs in the area. Mark is very much hands on with the farm and I often lend a hand with day to day tasks.
I enjoy reading, love to travel abroad, although this depends on the farm. I travel all over the UK with the horses when I can
