Description

Benefiting from its delightful surrounding, this bungalow enjoys a central location between Carlisle and the charming market town of Penrith.

The Wheat Shed and The Bothy are two holiday homes situated within the grounds of a working farm just 10 miles from the bustling town of Penrith. The Bothy is a semi-detached bungalow which stands in a delightful garden. The Wheat Shed is a semi-detached barn conversion with four bedrooms, two of which are en-suite. Those with restricted mobility will find the ground floor en-suite wet room and huge benefit. The properties are set on the owner’s working farm with beef, sheep and arable, with a woodland area and an abundance of wildlife including swans, ducks, geese, woodpeckers, deer and much more. Ideal for guests wanting to really explore the local area and beyond, with plenty of attractions within a close radius. Experience the Lake District at its best with every kind of outdoor activity on hand.

    Had a lovely week at the Bothy although the weather was a mix of sunshine, showers and occasional heavy rain. Plenty of places to visit including Carlisle, the northern Lakes and Penrith. Hutton in the Forest is well worth a visit as the house tour is very interesting. The single track lanes round about are not for the faint hearted especially if there is a tractor coming the other way but the peace and quiet of the cottage makes up for the lack of walkable attractions. There was everything in the cottage you could possibly need including a library of books and games. Many thanks to Alison and Richard for their kind welcome.

    Lovely week at the Bothy. Amazing hosts, amazing place and all enjoyed a fabulous week in Cumbria. The accommodation has all you need and more. Kids absolutely loved the zip wire - we will definitely be back. Thanks for such an amazing week.

    We have spent a fantastic wk in the Bothy.Cant fault it.Peaceful,comfy and homely.I was worried about noise from the adjoining cottage before we went as this has been issues at other cottages we have stayed in but we didn't hear a thing!The cottage is well equipped and the owners are friendly and helpful. We have used it as a base to explore much of the cumbrian lakes and will definitely stay there again.
