“A great treat”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We stayed for 2 nights with evening meal. This was a lovely treat, given by our 2 daughters and their families to celebrate their father 65 birthday.
The location just outside Keswick is idea for the visiting the lakes, shopping, walking and the coast.
Tea and scones on arrival started the stay off well.
The accommodation was so comfortable. The bedrooms were, comfortable and spotlessly clean.
The lounge with a log fire and furniture that just swallowed you up in comfort.
The food was tasty, well cooked and presented. The evening meal was so delicious and a real treat.
Hazel's care and attention made our stay special.

My second stay here with my partner and again absolutely no complaints. Stayed here 2 nights b&b this time in Low Fell room in the main house complete with slipper bath and lovely views. Cream tea on arrival in adjoining tea rooms, complete with wood burning stove. All v cosy. Spent late eve in hot tub in gardens enjoying a glass or two of Prosecco after a lovely walk in cockermouth in afternoon followed by tea at nearby wheatsheaf pub. V enjoyable full cooked breakfast both mornings in breakfast room. Lots to do in the area with cockermouth and Keswick all in easy reach. Had a quick walk round New house farms gardens, said hello to the horses before having to leave for home. Hazel is the most natural charming down to earth person you could meet who you immediately feel you have known for ages. Nothing seems too much trouble. We will definitely be back to try out one of the other rooms.

Room Tip: Take your pick - all rooms are superior quality.

Myself and my partner stayed at this guest house over the weekend and had a lovely and relaxing stay. The house has loads of character and is set within an old 17th century barn. The furnishings and fittings are of a very high standard and I really liked the attention to detail with lovely handmade soaps and white dressing gowns. The four poster bed was huge and very comfortable and we had a lovely spacious bathroom with rolltop bath. The owner is very friendly and staff went out of their way to accommodate us. We had a nice soak in the outdoor hottub, which is surrounded by beautiful hills and scenery. There are also several walks nearby but since I was just over 7 months pregnant and with a broken toe I was unable to attempt this, but just being there was enough. I look forward to going back and doing some hiking after the baby is born.

Enjoyed our first visit - beautiful home and such a genuine warm welcome. Tea and scones on arrival in front of a lovely roaring wood fire in a very cosy lounge which was so nicely decorated. Just perfect.
Would not hesitate to recommend to all our friends and family. Thank you Hazel !

We stayed 2 nights at New House Farm and had a wonderful time. A very warm welcome from Hazel. Cream tea on arrival beside a huge open log fire. Our room was beautiful with such a comfortable bed and a bathroom with a double air-bath. The lounge was very homely and it was wonderful having no TV's around, Bliss! We used the hot tub, relaxing while looking at the delightful scenery. A truley memorable stay. Hazel was the perfect host and will be booking again. I didnt get chance to use the tea room which was part of the farm, but I will on my return. Thanks Hazel for an awesome 2 days of being waited on in such warm and welcoming environment.

Stayed on a Living Social deal so this was a very good value trip. We got a very warm welcome with scones and tea in front of the fire in the lounge. Our room, Swinside was large and clean with an enormous comfy bed and a very impressive shower. The high point for me was sitting in the hot tub with a glass of wine looking at the fantastic scenery. Breakfast was lovely and eaten in the beautiful environment of the dining room with its open fire and pretty silver ware. This is like the home you want but can't be bothered with. Access to a TV somewhere on the property would be nice (we had to wait until we got home to watch the final episode of Broadchurch) but otherwise the peaceful environment was a very welcome change to city life.

Room Tip: I am sure all rooms are lovely but the ones we saw all had slightly different facilities re type of...

Picturesque drive to the farm,there is plenty of parking space on gravel, warm welcome from Hazel with a blazing fire and delicious home made scones and tea .We stayed in the Old Dairy which is totally private and peaceful. The bedroom was spacious and had a queen size four poster bed with a very comfy mattress, there was large separate room for the wardrobe and the bathroom was enormous with a double Victorian roll top bath...heaven! Everywhere was spotlessly clean but what set it apart was the attention to detail...handmade soaps and lotions(even bubblebath for bathtime)bottled water, fresh fruit and delicious homemade biscuits. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful in a pretty and unpretentious room and the table settings were lovely. Hazel helped us choose where to eat our evening meals.We found the food in the nearby pub the Kirkstile Inn really tasty and a selection of good reals ales pleased my mister! The grounds to Newhouse Farm are beautiful and the scenery and backdrop truly breathtaking, We didn't have time to use the hot tub but certainly will next time. The surrounding area of Lorton Valley is stunning and totally unspoilt yet so accessible to the other larger lakes.
I found Newhouse Farm on KGB Deals and after looking at all the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor booked it as a two night treat for my fiancé,as he has been a rock to me. Seldom do places live up to expectations but Newhouse Farm exceeded them in a big way. It is a perfect retreat for a romantic getaway and we would both love to return....in fact we didn't want to leave!Suzanne and Tim

Room Tip: The Old Dairy was spacious and private but the other rooms look lovely, some with Jacuzzi baths or p...
