Cottage Review:  

Having sold our property, my husband and I needed somewhere to stay for 5 weeks, whilst 'working from home'. Well it felt like home the minute we arrived, a warm friendly welcome from Joanne & Martin, not forgetting the dogs. Waiting for us was a tray of lovely treats, such as homemade banana loaf, jam, eggs and other goodies.

The cottage has eco-friendly heating, very clean and cosy. It is well equipped with essentials for both adults and children, also a good selection of DVD's & books. There is sufficient parking at the front and back of the cottage.

Joanne provided us with delicious homemade bread (cheese & sundried tomato), banana loaf, eggs and Jam every Friday (for a small cost).

Joanne and Martin were on hand to deal with a couple of small issues, which were addressed immediately. Would recommend for a peaceful break away.

We stayed at The Old Bothy for a long weekend, to use as a base while attending our nieces wedding at Blaithewaite House.

Perfect base very clean accommodation with a few little extras homemade scones supplied on our arrival by our host Joanne, and we also purchased some free range eggs, homemade wholemeal bread and Apple crumble all excellent thankyou. We had a little trip out to siloith on the Sunday well worth a visit lovely weather perfect day, will definitely return and stay again at the old bothy.

Thankyou Joanne

Cottage Review:  

We stayed a week at the cottage and really enjoyed our stay. It's immaculately appointed - really clean, and with everything you could need if you are staying with small children (high chair, cutlery, bed guard, toys, books etc.). It's in a lovely peaceful location, and a great jumping off point for the north Lake District and the Solway coast, as well as having lovely local villages, walks, cafes and pubs to explore.

Joanne was an exceptional host - nothing was too much trouble and she really made us feel welcome on her family farm. She also provided the option of ordering from a small selection of her local produce and homemade food which was wonderful - my 5 year old claimed her cottage pie was the best thing she'd ever eaten!

We'd love to stay again and would definitely recommend it.

We went to stay for a few days with our baby and had a lovely time at The Old Bothy. Joanne was so helpful both before we arrived and whilst we were there. We drive an electric car, and she very helpfully told us where the nearby charging points were (they haven?t installed one yet). They provided lots of toys for the baby, a high chair and a travel cot. There was even some delicious home baking to greet us when we arrived! We?re hoping to be back very soon!

My wife,my 1 year old little man and 3 year old girl and I stayed here for two nights. What a perfect little get away it is. The hosts Joanne and Martin are lovely people and they thought of everything that we could need for our stay with the little ones! Lots of indoor and outdoor toys to play with, DVDs to watch and books to read. Daisy said her favourite part of the whole trip was to help feed the cows, the kids both loved it! Thank you for your friendliness and letting us stay in one of your beautiful cottages. We would love to come back!

Booked a short break here at the last minute to extend our holiday in The Lakes and were not disappointed. Lovely home from home in a beautiful farm setting. The cottage was clean, homely and well equipped. Plenty of games, books and even a football goal for the children. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Cottage Review:  

This cottage is fantastic and exceeded every expectation we had. Ideally located....not too far from town but far enough to make you feel like you are in the middle of no where. The cottage has been converted to an excellent standard, with all the home comforts you would need and the log burner at night was just the ticket. The owners are simply lovely and can not do enough to make sure you have everything you need. There are dogs but they are very friendly and love a doggy treat. It is a working farm and loved being able to help bottlfeed the calf. Try it you won?t be disappointed!

Book early to save any disappointment.

This cottage is superbly equipped and well presented to provide a very comfortable holiday base, along with the very helpful host and set in an ideal location,

it makes the prefect place to stay, for touring Cumbria.

We stayed at The Old Bothy with our children (5 & 8) during the Easter holidays. The standard of the accommodation is exceptional with the little touches really making it special - welcome basket with home baking, stoked log burner, soft toys on the children's beds...Holiday highlight was Martin and Joanne showing us around their farm and our children feeding the calves.

Faultless accommodation - beautifully converted barn with loads of character, space and everything you need for a family break. The owners, who run the attached dairy farm were fantastic and made our stay even better ! Would absolutely recommend it.
