Hidden Gems in the Heart of the lakes

Vale Cows

Easily accessible but a world away.

Hang up your worries at the farm gate and step into our luxurious bespoke retreats, where locally sourced materials have been handcrafted into boutique accommodation nestled beneath Blencathra.

Our shepherd’s hut and cabins give you space to relax and enjoy a little bit of calm. A green paradise where you can watch the sunrise and the sunset. They are the perfect antidote to a hectic life.

View Our Stays

Our space is your place

The drive up from the south lakes is said to be the most scenic in Britain, but no matter which way you arrive, we’re easily accessible. Once you’re here, you’ll be surprised at how the rest of the world melts away.

Our farm Birkett Mire enjoys panoramic views down St John’s in the Vale and is watched over by Blencathra and Helvellyn.

From your deck, you can enjoy the roar of a fire as the sun rises or sets. Soak away the hustle and bustle of life in our hot tubs, warmed by homegrown wood, and enjoy panoramic views of the Lakeland mountains.

Hot Tub

You'll find us where two rivers meet

Our farm has direct access to the Threlkeld to Keswick old railway line – a popular three-mile-long footpath and cycleway. You can head for Threlkeld village or Keswick under your own steam – just like the trains did 50 years ago.

We’re at the place where two rivers meet, so if you fancy a paddle by foot or by canoe, you can step out of your accommodation and into the clear river water. St Johns Beck and the Glenderamackin meet on our land before meandering to join the Greta as it flows west towards the sea.
