We are situated on a farm in North Cumbria approximately 8 miles from the nearest town. We are surrounded by organic farmland, have a small woodland and access to Forestry Commission pine forest with at least 7 kilometres of walking or cycling paths. The property uses clean energy from our small turbine making it a zero-carbon heated accommodation. We have a electric car charging point for EV owners. We are near the Debatable Lands, Hadrian's Wall, Gretna and Carlisle.

The space
The property is on a farm and there are some farm animals so we ask that should there be any animals in the field directly along the track, please drive to the forest entrance rather than walking through the field. We have a small woodland that you can explore. Some guests have taken family photos in the woodland and should you want to take a picnic or light a small fire for toasting marshmallows, please do ask. There are several tree stumps to sit on whilst you soak up the clean air and quiet. :-)

Where you’ll be

Carlisle, England, United Kingdom

It is very quiet with no passing traffic. The access road is private and not used by anyone else. Occasionally there is a farm hand who will pass on a quad bike, but this is rare. There are plenty of hare about and many pheasant who like wandering around. Please drive slowly at dusk and dawn as the deer tend to wander across the fields at these times. They will jump over the fences to enter the forest. We have many beautiful night skies and would encourage you to have a look on a clear night.

I love travelling and enjoy meeting people from around the world. As a family we are trying to steer towards a carbon neutral existence and hope that our guests embrace our ethos too.

During your stay

We are happy for you to knock on our door should you need anything. We think we are nice friendly people but will leave you alone to enjoy the clean air and peace and tranquillity. We have two small dogs who are quite energetic so please let us know if you are wary of dogs or perhaps have small children who are scared of dogs.
