                                                          Fantastic, modern farmhouse

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We had an amazing time, I would highly recommend the farmhouses as a beautiful place to stay. The farmhouses are spacious, modern and comfortable. We booked both Bockram and Keld for my mys 60th. The rooms are all finished to a very high standard. The extras provided like highchair, cotbeds and baby gates really were fantastic not to mention thechild friendly plates, cups and bowls. There were even toys for the children to play with. Harriet was great and help organise balloons and decorations and answered my many emails very quickly. If you looking for timeout in beautiful surroundings these farmhouses are for you! We will be back soon.

                                                          Our party of 14, consisting of young couples and families LOVED our stay at Low Ploughlands. The barns are finished to such a beautiful standard and the views from the barns are breathtaking. My 2 year old son and his best friend really enjoyed their stay too, especially playing in the garden! We've already booked our return stay because we just couldn't fault this fabulous holiday let. Thank you so much to Harriet and her family for making us feel so welcome! We'll see you again soon!

                                                          A relaxing break

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We had a relaxing break at the start of April in this comfortable and well equipped cottage. It had an amazing roll top bath and a solid fuel burner. It was well located between the pennines and the lakes which meant there was plenty of lovely places to explore within half an hours drive, or if that's too far the ice cream in Brough ice cream parlour was lovely! The golden fleece pub opposite was welcoming and had a pool table to keep you entertained in the evenings. Thanks for a lovely stay!
