Please find below a selection of farm holiday cottages in Cumbria.
Cumbria is a heavenly blend of the Lakes, Pennines, Dales,
Hadrian's Wall and a stunning coastline. And nestling at the
heart of the countryside are some fabulous Cumbrian farm cottages.
The whole area is geared up to farming, especially sheep
farming, with hardy breeds such as Herdwicks roaming the Dales and
fells. Famous for its dry stone walling, the landscape is like a
huge patchwork quilt.
Time your holiday right and experience the lambing season.
There's nothing cuter than a newborn lamb wagging his tiny tail
and the children will absolutely love it. There may be cattle too,
as well as pigs, hens and ducks. Expect all kinds of new noises and
smells - and tons of fun!
Our farm cottages in Cumbria vary in size and style, though all
make the perfect home-from-home. And once your daily chores are
done, there's so much to see and do - highlights include a
sunset cruise on Windermere; a visit to Wordsworth's home, Dove
Cottage; discovering the world of Beatrix Potter; or exploring
ancient sites along Hadrian's Wall.
And your Cumbrian farm cottage is bound to be close to some
fantastic walks, whether you're keen to scale the heights of
the region's highest peaks, or take a leisurely stroll around a
