    The house was everything we all needed and we enjoyed trying out the games. Would love to go again and so would our family.

  • "Excellent property."

    Very comfortable for 8 people, including 3 teens and 5 adults. Very well equipped. Perfect location for the lakes and enjoyed the local walk to the coast. Hosts very good at communicating and available at anytime if needed.

  • "Perfect accommodation for our needs."

    Owners were friendly and helpful. The house smelt clean and fresh when we arrived and it was a good size. Large rooms and plenty of space for all of us. Having a dishwasher was useful because there was ample crockery so it could be filled for use. The house was generally very well equipped and nothing was too much trouble for Steve and Sarah. Excellent property for our dog too!

  • "We had a great stay at Greenhills Farm."

    Steve and Sarah couldn't have been more helpful. The house was very well equipped, particularly the kitchen, with plenty of crockery and good sized pots, pans and serving dishes. The beds were very comfortable and the towels fantastic!

  • "We had a lovely family Christmas in this house."

    I must say, I don’t think the photographs of the interior do it justice. All of the interiors were lovely and much bigger than they look online, with great quality bedding and towels. A great location with a fantastic walk to the ‘coast’ and good centrality to drive to other places of interest. Would definitely stay here again.

    The hosts were lovely and the area beautiful. Cannot fault anything. I know farmers are up early and cleaning has to be done but 10am check out was a bit if a rush for 8 over 70’s. This is not a Criticism just an observation It would not put us off going again. Fabulous xx

  • "Green Hills Farm is a wonderful location, tucked away but within driving distance of Ulverston and so close to everything you want to see and so in the south Lakes."

    The hosts are superb and made us so welcome and were very accommodating. All the beds were extremely comfortable and all the linens were spotlessly clean and the lovely white towels were "hotel fluffy" which was a treat! The rooms were spacious and well provided for with decent high quality furniture and plenty of wardrobe space, and the two showers were both good, well served with hot water. The white goods, the dishwasher, washer and tumble dryer, were all in perfect order and much appreciated. Big TV and free Wifi and Netflix all appreciated. Having a separate dining room really was brilliant and there was more than enough good crockery and cutlery for all, as well as good array of cooking utensils. Having a private garden and places to sit at the front and back all meant we had a variety of spaces in which to relax. Overall, we all really loved our stay: it was a great place for relaxation and unwinding. Small but important matters to note: a sign on the A590 main road and again at the turns in the lane would be very useful. There is no signage that can be seen and near neighbours/locals had never heard of the address or the host family - finding Green Hills in the dark would be impossible, it was a challenge in daylight. Also, though there's nothing the hosts can do about the lane, guests should be aware that low-axle cars may struggle due to the several-inches-deep potholes on the approach from the main road to the farm's own (well maintained) lane. Given the cottage can host up to eight guests, a larger fridge or a separate small fridge would have proven very useful. Also, while this is very well publicised as a working farm (a quiet one at that, there is no disturbance at all), guests should come forewarned about the flies. On our last day we killed 42 in the kitchen alone while preparing dinner, having spent a small fortune on fly sprays and fly papers over our stay. Not a problem per se, but some guests may be more squeamish! Finally, grab handles for when using the lovely big bath could help guests use the facility with confidence (it is quite a high sided bath).

  • "Our stay at Green Hills was just what we needed after lockdown."

    The view out of every window was amazing, even when it rained. The house is massive and so are the beds. My grandson loved seeing the cows, horses and sheep in the fields outside the window. A lovely welcome surprise from our hosts Sara and Steve of a bottle of wine and a cake was very much appreciated. The beds are so comfortable, there is plenty to do in the house lots of games and Netflix on the tv as we were home early with having a 2 year old. There is also a barbecue for our use, nothing was missed. Although there is a permanent gate on the bottom of the stairs there isn’t one at the top so someone had to stay with my grandson till he was asleep as he thought it was a great adventure being able to get out of bed and run from room to room, so we would take a gate for his room next time. Lots of local shops and pubs, plenty of parking. The house is situated on a working farm, but it didn’t smell like I thought it might, nor was there any flies. We had to drive down a narrow track to and from the house, but every time we came across another vehicle they always gave us priority and I wasn’t sure if that was because we were guest, it did make us feel special though. On the day we were due to leave the traffic was at a standstill and Sara told us to wait it out at the house while she cleaned upstairs which we are grateful for as it didn’t move for an hour and a half. Very accommodating hosts.

    I know it’s a farm but there were hundreds. The cottage was clean and tidy but the flies were uncontrollable and it did put a dampener on our experience. Hopefully easily rectified for the next holiday maker. Otherwise a lovely cottage with a great owner.
