Property was cosy and clean with everything we needed or asked for provided.

  • 5 of 5

Property was lovely and the owner Helen and her family went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable.

Helen and her son came to get us on the first night when we arrived and were lost.

The house was decorated in both the dining room and living room for Xmas and Helen had left presents under the tree for all of us which was above and beyond and a lovely touch.

Nothing that we asked for was our problem and Helen was happy to show the children around the farm and explain to our kids what they did at the farm.

Nothing was too much to ask for and we were even given more wood on Christmas Day when we asked as we had run out.

I have nothing but positive things to say about the property and hosts and would recommend to anybody.

Location was also very convenient being only 10 mins drive to Kendal town centre and supermarkets etc. The lakes were a short drive and we were surrounded by amazing countryside, farm shops and walks for the family.

Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

The perfect break

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous house - so spacious yet cozy. Very clean and lovely little touches everywhere. Perfect place to enjoy the Lakes and the Dales from, especially knowing you have a warm, comfortable, quirky home to return to. Kids loved having a top bunk each too. Absolutely loved it!

Great place for a long weekend in the Lake District

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this amazing cottage, perfectly located in the countryside and a short drive to some great walks in the Lake District. It was very clean and had everything we needed, including all the essentials for cooking. We had some great nights by the fire and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

My family of seven spent a few days at the Ashstead Farmhouse. The view was excellent and plenty of room for the entire family. Helen was very quick in returning the security deposit which I really appreciated.
