My girlfriend and I stayed here last week as a quick overnight escape to the country: what a find! The building, surroundings, and most importantly the people are all top notch. Our bedroom was beautifully decorated to a very high standard (the shower cubicle was HUGE) with everything we could possibly need for our stay. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner, shown to our room, and invited downstairs to the small dining room for a cup of tea; when we arrived there we found a lovely big pot of tea, another of (very good) coffee, and a selection of freshly home-baked cake slices.
Up in the bedroom, tea and coffee making facilities are provided alongside - again, freshly home-baked - a jar of cookies. The bed was seriously comfortable; it was an effort to drag ourselves out of it the next morning. But it was worth the effort for the breakfast that awaited us downstairs: fresh fruit, cereals, cooked Cumbrian breakfast, tea, coffee, yoghurt, toast, juices. Naturally, I tried the lot and it was delicious.
The only downside to our stay was the fact that we were only there for a single night. I recommend Sandhills Farm whole-heartedly.
