    “Very good”

    Wi-fi didn't work for half the week. Accommodation was perfectly adequate although lacked a certain homeliness for our taste. No books in evidence, for example. Also we had to replenish the toilet rolls during the course of the week!

    I'm sorry about the wifi we had a router break down and fixed it as quickly as we could. We did apologise at the time and I'm sorry if it spoilt things for you. There are lots of information leaflets and some novels in the cupboard I'm sorry if you didn't find them. We provide a new toilet roll at the start of your stay in all bathrooms. It is self catering so we would normally expect this to be part of your provision but we are happy to provide extra rolls if visitors get caught short! We would like all our visitors to discuss these things at the time as if they are causing problems they can almost always be fixed while you're here. We hope we might see you again at Fornside as it looks as if you did enjoy your stay.

    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.
