Littletown Farms was a real find! Our daughter found it on the net and we weren't dissapointed. Everything that has been said about the hosts, Rob and Sarah is true. Wonderful hospitality.

The quiet atmosphere and the fabulous views are amazing. The breakfasts were amazing too. A full English breakfast with sausages, bacon, eggs and so on goes a very long way. There was a good selections of cereals and fruit and all in all it was the perfect start to the day. Evening tea with scones added to the calories! We had dinner one evening - a beef dish. Delicious and well cooked.

The rooms were small but immaculate and the towels and sheets were crisp and fresh. This is a wonderful place that we would love to come back too.

I'll keep this short to avoid repeating what all the other reviewers have said- Littletown Farm was easily the best experience we had during our three week tour of England. Everything from the location, the people (THANK YOU Sarah and Rob), the food, and the farm was absolutely incredible...if you're looking to relax and truly have an experience you'll remember for the rest of your life, do yourself a favor and take a taxi or car out here for a few days, you won't be disappointed!

Sarah, Rob and their 3 children are the third generation to run this charming farm and B & B at the very end of the access road. Nestled at the foot of the Catbells, there are walking and hiking opportunities galore! The setting is breath-taking! It's a real working farm and the accomadations are modest but comfortable and spotlessly clean with a brand new bathroom en suite. Sarah and Rob have worked hard over the last 2 summers to make some great improvements to the further comfort of their guests. They were warm, gracious and accomodating. The breakfast room is straight out of a Rosamund Pilcher novel and food to match. We would love to go back to the Lake District and stay with them for a week!

Littletown is the perfect fairytale hideaway and a magical place to discover. Perfect location: ridiculously peaceful and you can walk straight into the hills from the front door. Rob and Sarah are the perfect hosts, always on hand with advice and help with what to do in the area, and the home-cooking is fantastic and worth travelling to Littletown for in itself. We were made to feel very much at home, and we really, really didn't want to leave.

Great place to stay in remote location although all Lake District accessible. Great walking country - walks to suit all from gentle to hard.
The hosts are great and the food is very tasty.
It is a working farm so you have to be prepared for cockerels and the like, but the friendly atmosphere more than makes up for that. Great for families.
Bed was especially comfortable and breakfast very tasty indeed. I am a vegetarian but was well looked after.
Looking forward to going again next year.

What a beautfil B&B! From the welcome (Rob served us some tea/coffee and home made scones) to the lovely and clean room to the most perfect breakfast (porridge, scrambled eggs with salmon or a choice of full English) we had the best stay and would not hesitate to come back.
Rob & Sarah were very friendly and gave us lots of useful information about the area and also a nice bar in Edinburgh (thanks, nice one ;)).
Looking forward to see you both in Berlin one day.
Thanks again for everything, Katja & Olaf

This has got to be the best B & B in the Lakes! Fantastic hospitality from Rob and Sarah, with all the comforts you'd like your home to have! Lovely bedrooms, bathrooms and comfy bed, but above all - the best breakfast ever! The evening meal we had was smashing too, with a nice choice of gins to go with your G & T before supper.
Go there - you wont regret it, and I'll bet you go more than once - we certainly will!
