I can only agree with the recent positive reviews I have just read. The farmhouse has an incredible setting, and things like the uneven floors and latched low height doors just help you to appreciate this as a fully working though very clean and very well-kept farm, complete with Nel one of the farmdogs who masterfully managed to get a good deal of affection out of us. Sue is a wonderful and accomodating host, and the warmth (literally, as Sue had a roaring log fire waiting for us when descended cold and wet from the mountains) and hospitality made our stay very enjoyable. The room was comfortable, warm and very clean, the toilet and bathroom spotless with lashings of hot water. Breakfasts were as tasty as they were enormous, and Eric provided a good insight into the local area as well as his sheep, which we found very interesting. After having met several hundred of his very healthy looking sheep on the fells, and bringing half of one home (a great offer so speak with Sue), this only increased our feeling of coming away enriched as well as happy and relaxed. All this at a very reasonable price, its truely a gem.
