    “Great holiday ”

    This converted barn was a very comfortable place to stay. The location was excellent with lovely scenery. Would stay there again.

    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. We offer some Friday and some Saturday changeovers, with short breaks also available in the winter and subject to availability - do email or call to discuss your requirements if the website doesn't list the availability you desire.

    Fornside Farm is a typical 17thC Lakeland hill farm, set back from the road with direct, private access to the fells. On our 54 acres you will find sheep, chickens and ducks and we hope to add geese and pigs very soon.

    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.

    Short-term bookings may be available at short notice.
