The Shed has been custom built, in the paddock, near my small barn conversion. It has a homely atmosphere, with vintage furnishings and up-cycled items. Where possible I’ve tried to be eco friendly. This is a quiet, tranquil place with beautiful views of the Scottish hills beyond the Solway Firth. It’s part of a small hamlet and my former family farm. Animals are often kept in the fields next to The Shed. You’ll experience stunning sunsets and starry skies.

The space
The main living area has two sofas and one sofa bed (small double), TV, DVD player and a selection of films to watch and books/games. The kitchenette has a kettle, toaster, George Forman grill, two ring plug in hob, microwave, small slow cooker and fridge with small freezer compartment and plenty of crocks for 4 people. The bedroom also has a small TV.

Guest access
There is a private seating area for guests to enjoy with pews and garden furniture. Guests are also able to use the grassy area in front of The Shed and the leafy lane behind the property. The lane continues (at your own risk, as it’s overgrown) until you reach a gate which is my boundary.
Dogs have access to the sitting room and outside area but must be ON A LEAD and NO ACCESS IN THE BEDROOM.

Other things to note
Well behaved dogs are allowed in the sitting room ONLY and must be on leads, when outside the property.
There is an extra £5, one off, cleaning charge if you are bringing a dog. This will be added after you have booked, in the form of a ‘change reservation’. All you need to do is accept it. More details are in the house rules.

It’s a 10 minute drive to the Lake District National Park and the pretty village of Caldbeck. Keswick is a 25 minute drive. It’s 20 minutes to the Solway Firth for bird watching and the start of Hadrian’s Wall at Bowness-on-Solway, 20 minutes to historic Carlisle and another 10 minutes beyond to Scotland. There is a pub, The Sun Inn, within walking distance.

I enjoy hosting get togethers for family and friends. I love getting out into the Lakes on my days off.
