We arrived on a beautiful evening in the middle of the lambing season. The field under our window was full of new born lambs which was absolutely delightful. WE enjoyed walking from the farm gate moments from some of the most stunning views in Borrowdale. The hospitality was superb. We had the residents lounge with its huge log burner to ourselves and just enjoyed relaxing with our glass of wine - neer for a moment did we consider putting on the TV! Being in the middle of nowhere the WiFi is not terribly fast but perfectly adequate. We were pleasantly surprised to have a good mobile signal too. If you want to get away from it, in great comfort, this is the place!
