The handmade Farrow & Ball painted kitchen will have you fighting to cook up a treat. Everything you need is here, including a Champagne welcome hamper, full of nice things from local producers and some of Debbie’s home-made specialities.

First Floor Description

Upstairs you’ll find the 3 bedrooms carpeted with 100% Cumbrian Herdwick wool carpets, each with their own unique en-suite. You’ll have to draw straws over the Master Bedroom, with it’s handmade super kingsize 4 poster bed. Richard has created this from the old cow stalls which were found in the barn before renovation started. The other two are slightly smaller, both have kingsize beds and one of them can be made into twin beds when needed.

Windows Views Description

Stunning views of fields, stone walls, Lake District mountains and Yorkshire Dales fells, which go on for miles. 360 degree views that has something different out of every window.
