New for the 2020 Season
Budget cabin – Ideal for 1-night stays
Due to popular demand for one night stays we are bringing in an additional cabin called the “Stable pod” – not en-suite. Quirky in design, cosy and comfortable; highly insulated with a panel heater. Sleeping a maximum of two adults; this could be the perfect solution for short stay restrictions in your plans possibly due to walking the Cumbria Way, cycling Lands’ End to John O’Groats or a midway overnight stop en-route North or South. The cost per night for 2 persons is £50 with 10% discount for single occupants. The cabin will not benefit from the beautiful views of the main site as it is located to the left of our stable-garage-utility area and behind our bungalow. The toilet and shower facilities are only a short walk away along the path in the rear of the utility room. It is preferred that you provide you own bedding – sleeping bags but if you are travelling light then you can add this on for £15.
The accommodation briefly comprises of:
- Caravan style bed set up where you close up the gap in the seating area to make your bed.
- Kitchenette area with 2 hob rings, sink, combination microwave-grill, fridge, kettle, toaster and all crockery and cutlery and pans required for two persons.
New Utility / Shower Room
We are well on our way with the creation of our new utility room which will be a fantastic addition to our onsite facilities. Providing all our guest with additional fridge and freezer storage space, washing machine and tumble dryer facilities and also a sink for washing off the muddy boots. To the rear of the utility room we will have a large shower room which is predominantly for those staying in the stable pod but also for the occasional tent camper.
Electric Vehicle Charging Points
We are installing (Initially two charging points) in the car park area; therefore, you don’t need to worry about heading to a rural area and not being able to find appropriate charging facilities.
Note: We hope to have these new facilities in place for some time after Easter. Please keep following us on facebook for updates or drop us an email for further information.

Dogs - Important Information!
As dog lovers ourselves we welcome well behaved dogs. (A maximum of 2 dogs per cabin) However, it is crucial that ALL dogs are kept off the bed and bed settee. We are experiencing an increasing number of incidents where we are having to deal with laundry that cannot be cleaned (muddy stains cannot be removed by the laundry) incurring a high replacement cost to us. Sadly if this persists then we may have no alternative but to reduce the number of cabins that accept our four legged friends. Your dog is provided with a water bowl, tie out rope and a towel to dry them. Should they need to be hosed down due to excess mud you can use the hose pipe next to the hot tubs.
The basic rules are as follows; if you cannot abide by them then please do not bring your dog!
- Dogs must be kept off the furniture (please bring a couple of large throws if you are concerned)
- All dogs must be kept on a lead and under control at all times when on site for the safety of other site users and due to the fact we have free range poultry on site too!
- No dogs to be left unattended in the cabins at any time.
- Poop scoops are provided for dog waste. It is disposed of in the green wheelie bins.
