  • "Beautifully appointed cottage in a fantastic location for touring the Lakes."

    The beds were sumptuous and the baths and showers luxurious. Our dogs both loved the lovely large garden that was full of birds. The highlight of the week was the little red squirrel that visited us everyday for hazel nuts very kindly supplied by the owners. Thank you for a lovely holiday experience.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. It’s so nice to hear you had such a lovely time at Home Farm. Even better that you saw the squirrels, as not everyone does, but it helped you kept feeding them hazlenuts! Kind regards, Kate. Property Owner

  • "The property was just about perfect!"

    The only two things we would suggest to improve it were: a) a roasting tin to cook in the oven b) some small hooks in the bathrooms to hang up clothes, shower hat etc.

    Hello! Thank you for your lovely review and constructive feedback. Home Farm did have roasting tins, not sure what happened to them, but they have now been replaced. Thank you for making us aware. We like you idea of some hooks for the bathroom. If you do stay again, just get in touch during your stay and we will try and help then and there. We just live up the road. All the best, Kate. Property Owner

  • "We had a couple of issues at the time of year we went."

    The first was that bringing the sheep down close to the house meant the house was full of flies. I mean, so many flies :( This can be avoided by not going in the height of summer I guess!) Secondly, the garden is NOT dog-proof. If you have a dog who likes to escape then there are a ton of holes (evidenced by waking up to sheep in the garden!). This meant we had an anxious week worrying our dog would escape into the sheep field and cause issues. In the end, we kept him on a lead all week, but still, not good and much of a worry to my mum. The beds were wonderful, the house itself was lovely, and the location was perfect. I just can't in all conscience give the place a 5 given the flies but most importantly the fact that we booked this place as a dog-friendly venue. I would recommend maybe a non-summer stay... maybe when there are no sheep, and maybe without bringing the dog.

    Thank you for your feedback. Our guests often bring dogs as the garden is a lovely spot for them to run around and generally don’t have a problem. We can’t guarantee your dog won’t get out, no garden is completely dog-proof of course, but we did fix the fence as soon as we knew there was a problem. We live just up the road and always leave guests our contact details so they can get in touch during their, if they would like to. Unfortunately we can’t ask the farmer not to put sheep in the fields near to the house. We did provide you with fly spray and fly papers, but it’s part of being in the countryside that there will be animals. Property Owner

    Kate was so easy to communicate with. The place was just as lovely as the photographs on the listing and each of us loved our bedrooms. The garden was so beautiful as were the fields surrounding it. The place was so clean and had everything we could want. We definitely hope to return for another wonderful stay.

  • "Amazing stay at home farm house."

    Such a beautiful location and house. The garden was big and clean and perfect for the kids and dog! (Lots of Easter egg hunts!) the house was really clean, great size, comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen! We loved it. Brilliant location for seeing all of the Lakes. Easy access to everywhere. Really quiet peaceful road only the sound of sheep and birds - bliss. Thank you so much. Only note that doesn’t need publishing- could have done with tea bags/ coffee/ milk for when we first arrived- was a long journey! And more dishwasher tablets and bin bags.

  • "Home Farm House was perfect!"

    The location enabled the family to visit the north lakes with ease and then escape back to rest and tranquility! We were all impressed with the attention to detail; all rooms were presented with care and colours but it still felt homely. The dogs enjoyed the enclosed garden space but I think they also kept the red squirrels at a distance. Hoping to book another stay next year, highly recommended. Thank you Kate, it was a pleasure to meet you.

The property

A homely house in the spectacular North in a small hamlet called Hutton John!

An extraordinary find in the fabulous farming country of North Lakeland, Home Farm House combines an idyllic location and the rustic charms of an authentic picture-book period residence with luxurious modernisation, finished to the most exacting standards, and with charming flourish!

Explore the stunning landscapes around Ullswater and revel in the comforts of one of our finest holiday homes. A true Lakeland farmhouse built in the warm-looking red stone common to this part of our region, your hospitable homestead dates from the 19th Century and has been lovingly restored to produce a first-class retreat for discerning Lakelovers.

A judicious eye has informed the style here, melding original features with fresh décor and thoroughly modern comforts.

A sumptuous sitting-room boasts a toasty wood-burning stove to warm your evening gatherings, and a separate 'snug' gives you cosiness and a little alone-time.

The rather fabulous kitchen and incorporated dining area, with its substantial farmhouse table, is sure to become central to your stay, a great place to enjoy those all important social mealtimes, while the bedrooms and bathing facilities are pure class- you'll be in heaven reclining in the feature free-standing tub in the first-floor bathroom! Your spacious yet cosy property is complemented by an equally hospitable garden.

This encircles the house and is pleasingly private, being bordered by mature trees and hedgerows.

The extensive lawn makes a fantastic area for family games or eating outside, and, of course, for just lying back and soaking in the sun! The sweeping farmlands surrounding Home Farm House soon rise to the romantic slopes of the Lakeland fells, and all manner of adventure awaits you here.

Keswick, with its bustling nightlife and endless attractions, lies not far away, and with it the Northern Fells, inviting you to conquer Skiddaw or the dramatic 'Saddleback', Blencathra, or wander the undulating ridges of Cat Bells above serene Derwentwater.

You'll find plenty of water-based action there, too, and that is equally so at beautiful Ullswater, just a few minutes drive to your south, where rowboats and canoes are abundant and the gorgeous steamer boats glide between some of the finest hill scenery in the country. For larger groups, the owner of Home Farm Cottage also offers two other high-end escapes nearby – Lacet Cottage (sleeps 4) and Highgate (sleeps 8). Home Farm House is a superb host for you to enjoy the best of the Lakes with good friends or family, and will ensure you do so in the lap of Lakelovers luxury!
