We live reasonably locally and were looking for somewhere where we could stay to accommodate our family and our friends and their two children who where visiting from Sussex as we don' t have the space at home.

We got a lovely warm welcome from the owner, Helen. She had gone to the trouble to supply a welcome pack with all the essentials including bread and milk and even coffee, tea and biscuits. Helen really had thought of everything including packs of toiletries and emergency sewing kit!

We were blessed with lovely weather and stepped out of our door onto a path which led up to Ashstead Fell. As it was February it was cold but the views were amazing!

We cooked at the house and the kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans which is always nice as I have stayed in some places that sleep 8 and only have pans big enough to cook for two! We spent our evenings eating around the big dining table, playing card games then put the kids to bed in the bunk room which sleeps 4 comfortably then sat around the real fire drinking wine and talking rubbish - perfect after a day walking in the fresh air.

I loved staying on a working hill farm. I've never fully understand what was involved in running a farm and Helen and her family were happy to explain. I wish we had been there to see the lambs.

We will definintely be going again. We have more friends coming in August so plan to stay for a week this time. We will be taking our mountain bikes with us as the brideway to Borrowdale in Westmorland runs right past the house. May make a day of it and stop for a pub lunch in Tebay.

This is a farmhouse for people who love rustic charm and cosy family atmosphere not for those looking for contemporary interiors. Happy holidays!

Liked best: The house itself. It was just what we needed. Would buy it if I could afford it!
Liked least: Farm dogs barking when we first arrived but soon got used to it
