Cowslip Cottage

The self-catering farm cottage is a two bedroom barn conversion dating back to the 17th Century. Before the conversion, the barn was once used to house the farms cattle, the milk produced was bottled up in the old dairy house which sits behind the cottage.

The cottage has fantastic views of the surrounding fells. The lounge looks out onto the pet lamb paddock and the bird feeding area where woodpeckers are regular visitors. To the right of the barn is the cottage garden where you can relax on an evening whilst looking at the beautiful fells that surround the exterior.

On entering the cottage you’ll instantly see the beautiful original stone floor, here you can dump your muddy boots and coats before entering the main cottage. Off to the left of the entrance is a drying room, great for when the famous Lake District rain shows up! Through the entrance hall leads into the cosy kitchen, with everything you need to produce home cooked meals around the farmhouse table. You can even purchase our Herdwick lamb burgers from the farm. A homemade cake greets you on arrival plus a few other welcoming treats, such as our own free range eggs, and milk. The lounge, which comfortably seats four, is a relaxing place to cosy up with one of the books, magazines and games provided.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, a double and a twin, each freshly decorated with Laura Ashely curtains, white linen and original floorboards. Also a contemporary bathroom with Cumbrian made toiletries, fluffy towels, and a large bath to soak in after a day’s walking.

Children and families will all love it here, bring the tent and wild camp in the garden or on the lower fells under the stars for a night, making memories that will last a lifetime, or come on a farm walk to learn about life on the fells or meet and greet with the lambs in April and May. Gather up with old friends at this cosy base for a week’s walking and talking, with nightly walks to the local pub or simply rent it for two and luxuriate in a wonderful romantic escape deep in the Cumbrian fells.
