The space

Our personally made beautiful roundhouse (NB new roof November 2016) is set in an idyllic location in the south west corner of the Lake District National Park on a working farm. The combination of soft wood and circular shape creates a very relaxing place - with the wood burning stove and dimmed lights it can be both practical (it has full electric and water) and very romantic. It has a lovely big bed for two, but can accommodate up to 4 - 5 people. The kitchen is fully kitted out with an induction hob, toaster, kettle microwave and fridge and sink with hot water. The showers and toilets are outside the Roundhouse only 20m away and immaculately clean. Enjoy!

Guest access

The Roundhouse is situated on our campsite on a raised terrace with easy access to toilets and showers as well as washing facilities with hot water in addition to that in the roundhouse. It is on a working farm with cows sheep and horses so for health and safety reasons it's not possible to access other areas of the farm but there are some lovely walks directly from the site up onto Black and White Combe. Our nearest beach is only 3 miles away (5 minute drive) with glorious miles of largely unoccupied sand. We are currently developing some areas of the site but would hope that this is not creating any inconvenience to our visitors.

Interaction with guests

We are always about to chat but do bear in mind we spend our lives at the moment living to work as we try and get everything on the farm to a better standard and improved. If there is anything we can do to make your stay the best possible, please let us know in advance - if we can, we will!

We sell onsite our own home produced meat (burgers, sausages) please just ask if you which to purchase some. If you would like local information or recommendations ask or check out the helpful folder in the roundhouse for ideas. We look forward to showing you our farm with its cats dogs sheep and heavy horses!
