  • "Perfect cottage and exactly what we needed for a relaxing break in the Lakes."

    The cottage was cosy and well equipped with everything we needed. It was a joy to look out at the river view from the living area and watch the variety of birds, sheep and goats that came to visit! The traffic noise never bothered us and being on a train line was a plus point for our train enthusiast son. The children's play area was also a bonus and my daughter enjoyed it. The location is great for walks on your doorstep and also easy to visit other areas of the Lakes by car. Would recommend to anyone and hope one day we can stay again.

  • "Great little cottage in an amazing location however the motorway and railway is unfortunately loud."

    This is however clearly listed. The beds weren't very comfy and the kitchen utensils were lacking with some in poor condition. Otherwise it was a great stay, surrounded by wildlife, great hosts and a lovely cosy cottage.

  • "We needed a post-lockdown change of scene and this cottage was perfect for us."

    The view of the river is even better than in the photos! Comfy cottage with lovely walks right on the doorstep, and just a short distance from Lakeland walks and towns. Close to the M6 and railway, but you scarcely hear those from indoors.

    Most areas of interest are about 30-45 mins away So you have to be prepared to drive but it's so worth it because the farm has beautiful views a river running by the cottages beautiful little play area. With sheep running free and little goats you can go and see. There's a device station about 2 miles down the road that do lovely food. Highly recommended and will use the cottage again

  • "What a wonderful cottage set in the most picture perfect position!"

    The cottage was fully equipped, very roomy, very well insulated and offered amazing views from every window. It offered privacy, seclusion and convenience as it is located on a farm close to all the facilities one could want: shops 5 and 15mins drive away, walking routes on the door step or very close by, and views of the Howgill Fells. We loved our stay and wished it had been for longer. Thank you for the chance to stay.

    It was a shame that we had to leave so suddenly because my mother had a stroke. So we had to go back 4 days earlier. But as i wrote we had a great time and the people were very helpful.

  • "River View cottage is lovely, warm & cosy."

    1 mile along a farm drive. Although the west coast railway line and the M6 motorway are close, we weren't disturbed by them at all. It was great to be able to sit and watch the river and wildlife from the living room window. We got snowed in for 3 days and were very comfortable. Kevin the owner was extremely helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. He even went and got us some shopping from the village shop in his 4x4. Once the track was passable with care, he followed us to make sure we made it safely.

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.
