Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 31, 2012

My wife and I booked this lovely farmhouse having read many of the reviews. I must admit that it was a lovely change to have an old fashioned but beautifully adorned sympathetically restored property. The fact that there are no TV's was a blessing everything was top notch apart from the weather (can't blame anyone for that though). Even so we braved the wind and cold to take a dip in the lovely hot tub. Looking up at where the full moon would have been if the clouds had let it peak through. Our room was lovely very clean very comfortable and with a gorgeous bathroom. We had a great nights sleep and the next morning we had a dip in our lovely big air jet bath before tucking into a lovely cooked breakfast. Even Jed (Hazel's dog) was extremely well behaved though i confess he hypnotised me into sharing some bacon with him! Cant recommend New House Farm highly enough

We spent a night here in October 2012 and couldn't fault the welcoming we both got on our first arrival. The room was beautiful and the views were picturesque. We would highly recommend it to other couples seeking a romantic get away. The rooms were spacious and the bed was highly comfortable making for a good night's sleep.

My husband and I stayed here as a birthday treat, and that`s exactly what it was a treat. The welcome you recieve upon arrival is second to know. Hazel is so bright and bubbly. From the booking to the stay perfection and so so professional.
The room was great, with a fantastic view of Low Fell, and then there was the double jacuzzi. Not to mention the hot tub for your use in the garden. This must be fantastic on a snowy night. You never know we may return to sample.
The room had everything you could wish for even homemade shortbread to go with a cuppa, now that was a real surprise.
Breakfast was delish, and made to order.
The family dogs are really friendly and wander about causing no problem at all.
We ate at the local pub on the evening we were there, and this was great too, the people that live in the area really have it made.
But Cumbria is a special place full of wonderful people, check out New House Farm and you will see for yourself. Thanks again Hazel and do hope to visit again.

Room Tip: Anyone thinking of a wedding just a tad different give Hazel a buzz I`m sure it would be no problem...

If you need a break from the pressures of life, work or just want to get away from it all then this is the place. Greeted by roaring fires and a host who's smile lights up the grayest day it is a haven in a valley. The bedrooms are amazing as are the bathrooms with nice touches like bath robes for the hot tub in the extensive gardens and toiletries which are to say the least unique. A set three course meal of Potted Solway shrimp, a scrumptious lamb casserole with the lightest mash and fresh vegetables with a fluffy crumble to finish all washed down with a nice bottle of Pinot (taken into the lounge to finish off with freshly brewed coffee and mints in front of a roaring fire Ahhhh! I thought I was in heaven. No TV but a radio if you want it Never missed the TV at all The tea rooms are worth a visit as well with fresh cream scones and tea a must. Good walks in the area and if you overdo it the hot tub will refresh those aching muscles. Book early you will not be disappointed

We stayed here for a night in Mid October 2012 and were met by the 2 friendly dogs who are part and parcel of the set up. After that, it was tea and cream scones. The staff couldn't be any more helpful and the setting is magnificent. We enjoyed the hot tub later and the local pub for a meal that night. Overall the stay was excellent and will hope to go back again some time. Lake Buttermere is only a few miles away with some of the best views you will find in the Lake District.

We have recently made a fourth visit to stay at New House Farm. Hazel is a brilliant hostess and always goes that extra mile to make everyone feel welcome. The rooms are excellent, we have stayed in The Old Dairy and The Stable Room so far and are due to go back in 4 weeks time where we are staying in Lowfell, but every room has its own special merits. My husband and I love to go walking with our labrador, and the great thing about New House Farm is that well behaved dogs are welcome in the rooms, and Meg, our labrador has even sat in the lounge with us in front of a wonderful, cosy fire...heaven! Would highly recommend it to anyone. Meryl Z.
