These two charming holiday properties are set on the owners’ working beef and arable farm, close to the traditional village of Gilcrux on the fringes of the Lake District National Park. Greengill Farm Holiday Cottage (ref UK2768) is a beautiful, semi-detached barn conversion. It has been thoughtfully designed, with each ground floor bedroom having a walk-in shower room, and the living, dining and kitchen area being located on the first floor. The property is beautifully presented and makes a comfortable base to return to after a day exploring the region. There is also the benefit of a private hot tub, which you can sink into with a glass of bubbly! Greengill Farm Shepherd’s Hut (ref UK3632) is ideal for that romantic getaway and is delightfully presented inside. From the comfortable double bed, the hand-made kitchen area and its very own shower room, to the cosy wood burner for those colder nights, the property caters for your every need.
Gilcrux, 1 mile, can be reached along a quiet country lane, and you can take a pleasant evening stroll there in summer for a meal or drink in the village pub or bistro. Ideally located, these properties are well placed for exploring the highlights of both the northern and western Lakes. The traditional market town of Cockermouth, birthplace of William Wordsworth, and the bustling lakeside town of Keswick both have a wide selection of attractions and are within a 20-minute drive of Greengill Farm. Fishing and golf are available locally. Beach 5 miles. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 8 guests.

    Had a lovely stay this week, sorry forgot to write in the guest book before we left. A gorgeous little hut, tastefully decorated. Everything you need for cooking, sleeping and showering ( just need your own toiletries ) The hot tub is very relaxing. A great base to go exploring Cumbria and the Lakes, around 20/30 minutes to Cockermouth, 20 mins to Keswick. We ate in the local pub, Mason Arms a couple of times, good home cooked food with ingredients sourced locally at reasonable prices. Opens from 6 but closed on Wednesdays. There’s another Bistro in the village but we couldn’t use this as it was closed for them having a break away. Both are about a 15 minute walk from the hut along a country road and through the village. Beautiful scenery on your doorstep, very close to Bassenthwaite Lake, nice little spot for a walk. Waking up looking at the highland cattle is a beautiful start to the day. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch, scones were delicious. We had a nice boat trip and walk around Derwentwater, got the boat from Keswick water and off at Lodore where you can find a little waterfall and then walked round the lake through the marsh lands and woods back to starting point which took around 3/4 hours, towards the end of the walk you come across a nice cafe doing some tasty food and drinks. Beautiful place and an excellent base to explore! Will recommend and hopefully stay again.

    Lovely four nights away during April 2019. The location is beautiful and the owners are lovely and couldn't be more helpful. The facilities, including the hot tub are great and we found it a perfect central location to explore surrounding areas/tourist attractions.

    Storm Gareth failed to upset our stay, my birthday surprise was a joy. No hot tub due to Gareth,however we enjoyed every other aspect of the shepherds hut. All you need in a small space. Emma was very accommodating and took us to see the feeding of the family pets the superb highland cattle. We certainly recommend any couple to use this wonderful facility.q
