Fornside Farm,
St Johns-in-the-Vale,
CA12 4TS


Fornside Farm cottages enjoy a stunning location at the foot of the Helvellyn range surrounded by dramatic Lakeland scenery.

We have 4 cottages beautifully converted from stone barns alongside the traditional farmhouse. They provide spacious accommodation of a very high standard retaining many original features. Well equipped, warm and welcoming with full central heating they are comfortable at any time of year.

Fornside Farm is a typical 17thC Lakeland hill farm, set back from the road with direct, private access to the fells. We farm 75 acres of beautiful countryside with spectacular views. We farm sheep and free range hens and also keep a horse, a pony, ducks and various cats and dogs.

We have created a private farm trail to help you enjoy our woods, fields, streams, wildlife and fantastic views.

Please note we do not take group bookings of 3 or more cottages without prior agreement.

    “Beautiful rural location with wonderful staff ”

    Beautifully located in rural area with stunning views all around. Well specified cottages with basic wifi for young adults who then hardly used it as there was always something to watch or interact with on the farm or activities in surrounding area. Fantastic eggs from the farm's hens. Use of washing machine very useful. Very warm which was a nice change for us in a Lake District cottage with good central heating. Only issue was the number of flies but that's what you would expect so close to a farm and good door screen on front door to reduce the number getting in. Overall a delightful setting with very helpful staff who are happy to help with anything from talking about the farm to giving ideas about what to visit. Have already booked next year's visit back!
