We had an excellent stay. Judith made us so welcome into her home and provided an excellent breakfast, including home made sausages. Our bedroom was well equipped and views from bedroom windows stunning. We shared many laughs on our continuing to get lost in Ambleside, our satnav did not help either to find the farm. Thanks again for such a...

Lovely caravan and farmhouse, set in beautiful gardens in the peace and quiet. Not far from Ambleside and Windermere for daytime activities. Two swings for children, which our son loved, especially the tyre. Lots of pubs nearby and Skelwith Bridge with café and waterfall, just down the road. Would definitely recommend!

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...

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...
