About Mrs Gillian Stuart

Duncan was born in Threlkeld & Gillian in Newlands. Duncan is a builder by trade and I worked on the family dairy & sheep farm before raising our daughter & son, helping on building projects then running the holiday lets at Bram Cragg from 1993. Duncan, since fell running, is a keen mountain biker a sport that has taken our family all over the UK. Gillian has been taking part in local dog agility events since 2006.

Any spare time and we walk the fell tops we have missed with our dogs & family.

Mrs Gillian Stuart purchased this chalet in 1993

Why Mrs Gillian Stuart chose England

Bram Cragg Farm being owned & loved by Gillians granparents since 1974 and has been in our ownership from 2008. We renovated & developed it until 2014 with Duncan using his 35 years of building expertise & family help to make it the holiday choice of many returning guests. You can;t help but fall in love with the setting of Bram Cragg against the fells in a sceinic valley. The 50 acre of land is now stocked with our neighbourghs quality limousan breeding beef and breeding sheep from April to October and we maintain the land all the year round.

What makes this chalet unique

Bram Cragg Farm looks unchanged with the oldest part dating from 1688. Buildings were added as dairy & sheep farming grew and mining, railways and reservoirs expanded the population. We have been allowed to develop these to provide holiday accommodation with lovely views and we replaced two existing static caravans with two larger modern lodges.

These have more comfort and space for up to four guests, more privercy but with open unrestricted views of fells & fields.

Fabulous accommodation in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully kept accommodation, with great attention to detail, in an amazing setting! Gillian has thought of everything with all the home comforts provided, including a dishwasher and hidden away washer/drier which is always handy. We had a lovely welcome with everything spotless and beautifully laid out with lovely touches like the addition of a delicious plate of shortbread sheep (we nearly asked for seconds) and a pint of milk . Gorgeous sheepdogs Gem and Fly turned up most mornings with a ball for a quick game and you can see sheep and cows in the surrounding fields. It is easy to find from the M6 and well positioned for visiting all the main Lakes. It fact it's so lovely I almost want to keep it a secret! We will definitely be returning, hopefully for longer next time.

Would happily stay again

  • 5 of 5

We have previously stayed at the barn and thoroughly recommend that. On this occasion as we were a smaller party, we stayed in one of the log cabins. The area is stunning, the owners friendly and helpful and the accommodation very clean. It has everything you would need and is very comfortable. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending the property.

Good stay in Lake District

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful fine stay in the cottage. There was something wrong about the heating, so he owners made us a very good offer: we could stay in a nice cottage, also with a wonderful view. We liked it very much, and it was very comfortable.

Owner's Response: We were able to offer these guests our holiday cottage instead of a lodge as the hot water pump needed replacing. We are pleased they liked the Cottage as much as we hoped and had excellent weather for their holiday in the Lake District,
