The cottage was very well equipped, beautifully renovated and still looked fresh 6 years on. Lots of little extras to make you feel welcome.

The Byre was formerly used for keeping cattle on the ground floor, with hay stored on the first floor i.e in the hay loft. The Byre has been converted to a very high standard with oak wood used throughout, retaining the original beams.

There is solid oak flooring, with scatter rugs, apart from bedrooms which have pure Herdwick-wool fitted carpets made locally in Kendal. The Byre has 2 bedrooms on the ground floor along with a bathroom which has a bath with shower over. There is also a shower room with toilet and basin on the first floor

The first floor is open plan with a kitchen at one end, dining area in the middle and lounge area with Smart TV, wood burning stove and two leather sofas at the end with the large opening which was the barn doors.

The Kitchen has dish washer, washing machine, microwave, fridge freezer, double electric oven and separate electric hob.

The whole place is very comfortable and kept warm by an Eco Friendly Biomass wood boiler. This also provides hot water 24/7. All windows and doors are double glazed and the walls and roof have been insulated for really cosy comfort even in the middle of winter.

The views are phenomenal looking up Deepdale towards Fairfield, onto Aiken Crag at the back of the property and across to Place Fell and High street the old Roman road at the front.

Bed linen, towels, central heating and logs for the wood burner are provided.

A private secluded outdoor area is provided at the back of the property for al fresco eating.

All water at the property is provided by a mountain spring which filters down through the rocks over many years. It is then filtered and treated with UV light and is tested annually by the local authority.

The area around the Byre on the farm is very bio diverse in wildlife, as part of a 25 year Environmental plan.

B&B available in main farm house.
