About the property





Set in a peaceful and idyllic location yet within easy access of the amenities of the Lakes and Dales all 3 barns have been awarded 4* Gold by Visit England. Offering spacious accommodation the barns have been finished to provide quality and comfort. Each barn has it's own private enclosed gardens, garage, private parking and free wifi. With easy access from the M6 Simgill makes it suitable for groups to meet up from all parts of the country. Ideal for family and friends the barns are fast becoming celebration places from 1st to 60th wedding anniversaries, , engagements and weddings, girls (hens) get together, university reunions, or just family holidays. The barns can be booked individually or as a group booking. All 3 properties are set within the 40+ acres of Simgill Farm. Country walks are right on the doorstep and the Dales Way is adjacent to the farm. Our large herd of Alpacas can be seen in the fields grazing and with an ever growing herd of over 60 not to forget our ducks makes a visit to the barns something different. When staying at our barns if paying guests wish to see the alpacas and get the chance to feed them we offer a free of charge up close meeting with them, something you don't get to do everyday and an enjoyable experience not to be missed.

About Wendy Price

We moved to this beautiful part of the country 13 years ago to enjoy a better way of life and we haven't been disappointed. Living in wonderful countryside yet within easy reach of Kendal and the motorway network we feel very lucky to have found Simgill. The farm was in a bad state when we acquired it and we set ourselves a major task to renovate the farm and barns. During this time we have kept various animals but by far the easiest and nicest animal to look after is the Alpaca. We have over 60 with an ever increasing herd. We are hands on with our herd and guests have said it has been the highlight of their stay to meet and feed our Alpacas, even going as far as to say it has been one of the best days of their lives so far.

Why Wendy Price chose England

Scenic, peaceful, idyllic yet has easy access to the M6 motorway, Kendal market town and the amenities of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Ideal for friends and families meeting from all parts of the country.

What makes this cottage unique

Conveniently located to the amenities of the Lake District and within easy reach of the M6 whether your travelling from the far north, south or east, Simgill Farm is an ideal meeting point for everyone. 3 large barns all in their own private garden and grounds are finished to a high quality and very spacious for large family or friend groups. Beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, Alpacas close by, walks from the doorstep, this peaceful location is within easy reach of Kendal market town. Simgill Farm is the only accommodation we know who offers guests a chance to see Alpacas up close and hand feed them if they wish.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gill Side Barn - My 30th birthday with 15 friends & was not disappointed in the slightest. Beautiful property, Wendy & Joe are lovely people who couldn't have made us more welcome. The cottage is furnished to a high standard, we couldn't have asked for anything more. For a property of this size, the quality of everything is superb including the beds! Kendal is a 10 minute drive away, there are sufficient taxi firms offering mini buses to get into town for a big group. Good for a night out! Lots to do locally, we did clay pigeon shooting & quad biking whilst we were there. Would definitely return!

Barn Court Cottage - We had a really great weekend - a beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of the country. The cottage is clean & really well appointed but the highlight was getting to meet and feed the alpacas - amazing.

Meadow View - Stayed here with a group of ladies. Couldn't praise the house highly enough. Very spacious and finished to an extremely high standard. Lovely location.
