Details

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.

    Rated as 4 out of 5

    “good/very good”

    - lovely and quiet location, good base to explore the Lake District
    - very clean and well equipped kitchen
    - unfortunately, there were no insect screens at all so if you opened a window you had a good chance to have an awful lot of flies inside (bedroom and living room)
    - it is perfectly okay to have in such a rural area internet access that can't deal with too much demand and is quiete slow, but it might be a good idea to say so in the advertising brochures
    - staff service can't be rated because it was self-catering, we were given the key and that was that. We weren't even sure in which of the cottages we could have found the owners.
