Accessed by a single track, this traditional, Cumbrian farmhouse is surrounded by open countryside, with far-reaching views of the Southern Fells from the front of the property. Attached to the owners home, it is close enough to enjoy the beautiful coastline, and of course all the features of a working farm. The cottage in parts dates back to the 1700’s, and is full of character from the original slate flooring in the living room, authentic warmth from the Aga stove, to the feature fireplace with a glowing wood burner.
Perfectly situated on the West Coast of Cumbria, families can explore nearby Muncaster Castle and the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway and fell walkers have just a short drive to England’s highest peak, Scafell Pike at the far end of the Wasdale Valley. The open stretches of Seascale beach are perfect for young, old and dogs too! Golf, horse riding and numerous excellent restaurants are all nearby, and our owner is happy to arrange for locally sourced meat, dairy and veg hampers to be ready for you on arrival. Don’t forget to bring your wellies and ask for a tour around the farm during your stay too! Beach 3 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    The cottage owners are very welcoming and helpful & Catherine sorted us a local Turkey and vegetables for our Christmas stay. The cottage is listed as having central heating but there is only one radiator upstairs outside bed 2 and controlled by next door, the listings also state that the kitchen has an Aga cooker but it is in the lounge at the bottom of the stairs, cooking is very difficult when the work surfaces, water, fridge and everything else is in the kitchen 20 feet away, also the Aga has been preset at a low temperature and the thermostat disabled so you cannot achieve the correct cooking temperature of 230 in the top oven, this sets the correct temperatures for the hot plates and simmering oven, the top oven was at 150 and cooking anything took a long time. The cottage desperately needs a cooker in the kitchen. The stairs are extremely steep and the warning at the top recommends you come down backwards, upstairs the carpets are thread bare and open gripper bars are ready to rip into your feet in the night (be warned) the beds are comfortable but upstairs is very cold, the bathroom is large but the shower pressure is really poor, the taps are loose and the hot water is extremely hot, we had a bit of fun in bed with our two year old daughter counting cobwebs on the ceiling (torch required). The farm supplies wood for the log burner at a cost but unfortunately you dont get seasoned dry wood its wet fence posts that struggle to burn and the cottage is seperated from the main house with adjoining doors so conversation is clearly heard. We cut our stay short and went home a day early.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We were living in the property next door and could have been approached at any time during our guests stay to put right anything raised. The Aga temperature was adequate to provide hot water and is running at a temperature of 230 degrees when checked using a temperature gauge inside the cooker. Unfortunately due to the layout of the property the AGA is in the living area with pans needing to be moved to the sink to be drained. The property is advertised as having steep stairs and for safety reasons there is a notice at the bottom asking that the handrail is held when ascending and at the top for guests to descend backwards again for safety reasons. The carpet needing to be replaced was for a small landing area, we had been let down by carpet fitters which was explained at the time guests arrived they were due to fit it the day the guests left. It has now been replaced. Upstairs has one oiled filled electric radiator in each bedroom for guests to regulate the temperature themselves. The radiator on the landing can be regulated temperature wise by guests however the timing is controlled from the farmhouse. Water pressure can be variable as we are a working dairy farm with water being needed to cool milk during milking times which are 5.30-8.30am and 3.30-6.30pm. This is explained in the guest information pack. All other concerns have been addressed. We appreciate feedback and have a form in our guest information pack so that we can address concerns as soon as they are raised as well as being willing to help with any problems guests tell us about while they are staying. As far as we were aware our guest left due to work commitments not due to any failing on our behalf.
