Had a lovely stay here with family. Used it as a base to visit a number of locations e.g. the Lake District and the seaside. The fact that it is on a working farm was great and our grandson loved watching the goats at the front of the house and seeing the cows in the cow shed from his bedroom. The owners went out of their way to provide everything Read moreneeded. Would definitely book this again. Hide

This was perfect for our family requirements with a wide range of ages and needs. The location on the farm is lovely and it was very special for us to witness a calf being born. A quiet lane leads down to the farm and is adjacent to the canal so some very relaxing walks.
