Reasons for trip


We had a splendid holiday at this farm; self catering in one of their 4 mobile homes. We'd never stayed in such accommodation before and with there only being 4 all with views over the fells, at the back of the farmhouse, so well away from the road, we decided it wouldn't be like other mobile home sites. In fact it was wonderful; very reasonable indeed and spacious for us 2 though it would have slept 4 in the double room and the other with 2 single beds. The lounge area had plenty of seating, an effective gas fire (all power costs were included). The TV had good reception, the bed comfortable and the constant hot water ideal, and it was very clean and tidy and the welcome was really friendly. Best of all were the large picture windows with views onto the fields where the sheep (and a few cattle) grazed. The sheep were literally a couple of yards from the window. The hens were everywhere and despite best endeavours weren't always rounded up every night and we had one broody one just next to our door. Also there were free-range guinea-pigs, under the caravans and in fact all over the place! The farm is situated on the main road from Windermere to Keswick, with a bus stop just there. The walks are so amazing in this part of the Lake Distict. Directly from the farm, across the road, the path goes up to St John in the Vale church and if the path is followed to the right, it skirts the hillside down towards Thirlmere. Actually on the path is a tea-room where we had the most enormous jug of hot chocolate to share. Within a mile or so of the farm is Castlerigg stone circle; on a knoll; pretty atmospheric, particularly at sunset. We had walks around Derwent Water; in Keswick; up Cat Bells; to Watendlath from Stonethwaite village (very, very steep, but exciting);Langdale Pikes area; around Grasmere (tasty gingerbread from the special tiny shop there); and our favourite walk, from Buttermere, up Haystacks then round Buttermere. We would definitely return to this caravan and have recommended the farm to friends.
