Had a fabulous time with very friendly people - Judy, ED and Yvette couldn't do enough to help when we had a bit of equine drama... Beautiful setting, fabulous hacking, and some good pubs within a shortish walk.....

We stayed in the caravan for a week in May. Fabulous location and very friendly hosts. Great setting and the kids loved the swing in the garden. We walked every day from the farm and barely used the car all week. The sun shone all week which was clearly a coincidence rather than anything The Iretons had control over but... More

Very idyllic location near Ambleside. Set on a working farm, with horses and sheep sharing the environs. Beautiful views over to the mountains from the driveway. Hosts were very friendly, and gave us a lift to the Drunken Duck restaurant (about 25mins walk otherwise). Nice communal area for guests where we enjoyed tea in front of a wood-burning stove in...

This is a lovely bed and breakfast with comfortable rooms and all amenities. The situation is beautiful and we were made to feel very welcome. The rooms were spotlessly clean, nicely decorated with beautiful bed linen. A home cooked farmhouse breakfast made to order finished a perfect stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend break in such a lovely and peaceful setting. The farm is only a few miles from Ambleside so it is a central location to visit places in the Lakes but It feels like quite a remote setting. There are lovely views from the farmhouse and lots of interesting wildlife about. We saw rabbits, foxes, deer... More

Beautiful old farmhouse on hills above Skelwith Fold surrounded by lovely trees. Friendly helpful people. Fresh milk available to brew up. Good breakfast. Clean, comfy rooms. Excellent value. Nothing not to like.
