  • "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.

  • "A fantastic week in a beautiful home."

    Dogs loved the great garden to run around in. All needs catered for in the kitchen. Managed to cook a full Sunday Roast no problem. Granny Dowbekins Tearooms in Pooley Bridge seen us every day. Online Sainsbury’s delivery. Welcome gift much appreciated ( especially fudge). Look forward to a revisit.

  • "Wonderful cottage with perfect facilities for us."

    Comfy beds and pillows and beautiful rooms. Loved the log burner. We saw red squirrels in the garden and more pheasants than we knew possible. Just love the Lakes and scenery. Thank you for everything especially the bubbles for the newly engaged.

  • "We have spent a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage."

    The weather was fairly kind to us during the week… Enjoyed many lovely walks…revisiting one of our exceptional favourites – Castle Cragg and climbing Catbells for the first time we can recommend The Horse and Farrier in Dacre and The Linghom Kitchen, for yummy food. I was lovely returning to the cottage to spend sunny afternoons and evenings in the peaceful garden (Ruby especially loved it. Hopefully we will return!

  • "We have just spent the most amazing two weeks at Home Farm House."

    The owners have restored it to a very high standard and it was immaculate throughout. We also had two weeks of wall to wall sunshine too, which made our holiday complete. We would definitely recommend.

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!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
