Farm animals

We had a great time and the owners were very accommodating and helpful. All equipment was provided for the kids who had a ball and the dogs enjoyed easy access to fields for a run around and the warm doggy shower for afterwards.

Staying on the farm, one of the many benefits is the never ending supply of freshly laid eggs for your breakfast supplied by one of the resident literally thousands of free-range hens that roam in a secure, large enclosed designated area. The surrounding farmland is a tranquil haven for wild-life where you can get up close to nature, the farm even has its own Tarn with a large bird watching hide. Otters and kingfishers have also been sighted regularly.

About the owners

Marion & Johnathan

We live on site, and together with our two sons and Marion’s parents there is always someone on hand to help with any questions or issues. We can be here as much or a little as you like.

Owner recommendations

  • Lake District Wildlife Park is a great day out and only 5 minutes drive.

  • On sunny days you can’t beat Crummock Water for a swim and a picnic.

  • Whinlatter Forest Park is a vast open space to explore – and there is usually a Gruffalo waiting to say hello.

  • Head to Lowther Castle for the biggest and best climbing frame (a replica of the castle itself).

  • Maryport Promenade – take your scooters and a picnic, explore the beach and have fun at the park at the aquarium.
