    • “What a wonderful place to stay”

    • “Just got back from a family holiday in the Lake District, we stayed at keskadale farm in the newlands valley. We went for a week but could have stayed longer, the views were un forgettable. The two bedroom apartment was perfect with its own little garden the apartment was clean and homely. We didn't want for anything, if we needed anything the owners told us to let them know, but we never needed to, the kitchen had everything we could ever need, there was a selection of teapots and coffee pots, loads of utensils and a full dinner set. The beds were really comfy and the bathroom was clean and welcoming. The apartment is part of a working farm so if you don't like the smell of animals or a little inconvenience here and there then it's not the place for you. We will be staying here again with out a doubt. There is no wifi, and no phone signal, but a little drive up the road and signal returns. Friendly affordable and fully relaxing I can't say enough about this place.”

    • “If you want stunning views, peace and quiet and you love walking this is the place for you. We had a wonderful week. The owner is very friendly and chatty. The apartment is warm, cosy and compact with everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. On arrival a bunch of fresh flowers had been placed in a vase for us and there were biscuits and chocolates along with the tea and coffee. The kitchen is well fitted with lots of equipment. The dishwasher is quick and quiet - washer tablets were provided. There were lots of maps and leaflets to help plan walks and visits during the stay. The bed was very comfortable. We chose the smaller bedroom, but if you wanted lots of space the second bedroom was enormous! There is an outside seating area with views from Catbells to Robinson. The night skies were amazing. we didn't want to leave and would certainly go back again. It was excellent value. We got a wifi connection and an O2 signal but no EE reception.”

    • “This farmhouse was of a high standard for the price. We had a fantastic time, the location was perfect for many of the great Lakes walks. It was in the middle of the valley and in the middle of nowhere, this was exactly what we wanted. The owners were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The cottage had everything we needed and the facilities were of a high standard with very comfy beds, we intend to return.”

About the location


Keswick 3 miles.

Between the magnificent northern lakes of Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite, lies the village of Braithwaite. Still retaining much of its traditional appeal, the Coledale Beck runs through the village with whitewashed Lakeland cottages, two village shops and two real ale Inns each brimming with character! Between Braithwaite and Buttermere is the beautiful Newlands Valley, while picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake is well worth a visit. From a gentle countryside ramble to a challenging hike up Skiddaw, there really is something for everyone. Visit Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the lake with an open-air theatre, or take a trip around the lake. Trotters Farm, Dodd Wood, Derwentwater, and Keswick with its wide range of attractions, are also within easy reach.
