We stayed for 3 nights in March at this Farm and had a great time. Our room was Armboth, ensuite with a huge bath and plenty of hot water for a good shower. If you ask for the folding bed as we did, the room is a bit snug for three people. Very clean. Great views and central location, close to Keswick (10 minutes by car).
The family is very friendly, make you feel welcome and are happy to chat. This is a nice touch because at other b&b you sometimes feel like an intruder.
As in other comments, if you have to be away at a certain time its best to ask for an early breakfast as this can take a while.
Breakfast was good, thick bacon and fresh loaf of bread every morning.
Would recommend this place!
