  • "We’ve just had a wonderful relaxing holiday at oak tree cottage it’s warm, comfortable and homely with everything you need."

    Yes you can hear passing trains and slight traffic noise but it isn’t intrusive in fact my son thought it was a bonus that he could watch the trains. We wouldn’t hesitate in booking this cottage again.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay."

    It is down a .5 mile track which is wonderful you really feel like you're getting away from it all. We loved seeing the sheep and goats and my son loved the little play area. Reading some other feedback about it being near the trainline and M6 it really isn't that bad. You can only really hear it outside and it really isn't that loud. Everything was very clean. Guides left in place of where things were. Bedrooms are spacious. It was a very cost stay. Kevin came to check everything was okay with our stay he was really nice. Overall a fantastic stay We hope to come again next year

  • "Great location if you don’t mind motorway and train noise."

    Adequate facilities, comfy beds and sofas. Smoke alarm goes off every time you use the toaster! Really wished the kitchen window was a door as no door direct into rear garden just side door with path part through next door. Other 4 properties seemed better maintained than ours. Outside areas poor, grass needed cutting, planters contained dead plants, pile of bird poo from nesting birds which could have been hosed away, whirlygig and pegs manky. If we return it will be to one of the other properties.

    Thank you for your feedback. The motorway and train line are mentioned in Sykes description and in 10 years we have had only a handful of people concerned by them. The detector in kitchen is a heat detector so we will look into what may have happened. No guests have mentioned this to us since their stay. All our properties are maintained equally but the comments about the planters and grass (only oak has grass) are noted and we will speak to the gardener. The bird poo will have been from the swallows that nest in the eves and we will usually clean this up on the changeover day we are not able to clean it up every day. The whirly gig and pegs will be assessed and cleaned or replaced as required. The change to the kitchen window is noted but it would require structural alterations. Property Owner

  • "We travelled a great deal around the area and this was a lovely haven to return to."

    The cottage was very spacious, clean and comfortable. There were warnings about proximity of busy road and rail line and length of bumpy track ...DO NOT BE PUT OFF , the road and rail line are on opposite side of valley, we live in a very quiet village and still found they were still not at all intrusive. The long track is windy and bumpy but is tarmac and we were expecting far, far worse! Great text contact from hosts , all items in house were excellent quality. Folder may need updating perhaps as WiFi is different (but excellent) but on the whole this was a great place to stay..wish we had discovered when children were younger as space, garden and play area would have been a joy! There are other cottages but we did not see a soul, great that recycling is effective and whole area beautifully maintained. It is a farm, there may well be sheep on the lane and you will see lots of wildlife. Views are wonderful, a great setting! It was consequently a good drive to EVERYWHERE but when the scenery is that beautiful nobody minds. Almost wished it was colder so we could try the underfloor heating...Thanks for a great stay.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Oak Tree cottage and it provided easy access to various parts of the Lake District we wanted to explore."

    The cottage is also greatly equipped and the rooms clean and tidy. The only missing item would be a drying rack for washed clothes. There is a fixed drying rack outside, but it rained and snowed during our stay so we could not really dry clothes outside. Our two children (aged 2 and 6) loved the outdoor playing area. The scenery is beautiful and it is a real tranquil area. We would love to be back when we plan a break in that region again.

  • "There were no bath soaps/shower gel/shampoo/conditioner in the bathrooms."

    Consider keeping them. Also consider keeping hand wash in kitchen. No kitchen tissue roll either. It's a hassle to carry these things and certainly no supermarkets around. The cottage costs can certainly cover these little things. Could consider keeping few washing machine tablets. Should have a clothes drier stand inside the house. Someone coming for 1 week stay would definitely need to wash their clothes. With rain, one can't dry clothes outside. Beautiful scenic place midst in the valley, river behind the cottage and mountains in front. Loved it.

Brockholes Farm Cottages

Tebay 2 miles. Situated on a rural lane along the banks of the River Lune, which cascades down the valley, and surrounded by the stunning Howgill Fells, are these five Cumbrian holiday cottages, two miles from Tebay and conveniently close to the M6. Set on a family-run livestock farm, these Tebay cottages sit amongst spectacular surroundings, whether you stay close to home and observe the daily activities of the farm, with its resident hens and sheep, or explore this beautiful valley, with its dramatic, ever-changing scenery. Each of these Cumbrian cottages have been lovingly created from old farm buildings and are furnished and decorated to an excellent standard, retaining character and charm. Both come with private outdoor seating areas, along with shared use of a children’s play area, plus the opportunity for walks across the farmland and even fishing on the river. These exceptional cottages are surrounded by an area rich in wildlife and natural beauty, and located close to the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District National Parks, they’re superbly placed for exploring the rolling Dales and the quaint Yorkshire villages of Hawes and Dent, whilst the beautiful Ullswater, the second longest lake in the Lake District, can be found within 40 minutes’ drive. Nestling on the shores of Ullswater are the pretty villages of Pooley Bridge and Glenridding, surrounded by a skyline dominated by Helvellyn, England's third highest mountain. The Ullswater Steamer also cruises down the lake, stopping off at popular points along the way, so if you fancy a more gentle day, then pack a picnic and watch as the inspiring landscape passes you by. Booked together or separately, this group of cottages near Tebay are ideal for your next Cumbrian cottage getaway.

About the location


Kendal 13 miles; Penrith 17 miles; Windermere 19 miles.

The charming old village of Tebay sits near the eastern fringe of the Lake District National Park. The village itself winds its way along the edge of the main thoroughfare and the traditionally whitewashed Cross Keys Inn has been there for 500 years or more. The inn is reputedly haunted by the ghost of the Tebay Witch, Mary Baynes. Along with its better-known neighbours of Kendal, Sedbergh and Appleby-in-Westmorland, the area is surrounded by lovely rolling countryside and beautiful scenery. Nearby Orton has a local pub serving good food, a Post Office/shop, tea rooms and the famous handmade chocolate shop. A lovely village green surrounded by 17th and 18th century cottages adds to its charm and there is a farmers' market in the village square on the second Saturday of every month. Take a short drive and discover the unspoilt lake of Haweswater, or take advantage of the excellent road links to the Lake District, the Eden Valley and the Yorkshire Dales.
