About our home

Our home is a large, traditional farmhouse, 300 yrs old, at the centre of our dairy and sheep farm in the south lakes. It is surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful coast line. We are only 1 mile out of the village, where there are some good pubs, cafes, post office and shops.

Directly behind the house is a ruined peel Tower, which gives the farm its name.

The house has 6 good size bedrooms and can sleep at least 12 people, but could accommodate 16 - 17 including children. Downstairs, it has a large kitchen with an electric aga, a large pantry and welly/dog room, sitting room and a conservatory. There is an enclosed garden to the front and rear of the house, with a lawn and a child's playhouse.

We run a small tea room from the farm on weekends and school holidays.

The farm and house are beautiful - but it is a working farm. Our cows walk past the house at 6am on their way to the milking parlour, and there will be some machinery (tractor, and parlour) starting up about 6 30am each morning. We have farm dogs, which sleep in runs outside. We have friendly farm cats which are only meant to have access to the 'back kitchen' but may venture indoors if allowed. We have two friendly horses which generally run with the cows. As well as the general farm noises, there can also be mud in the yard (winter) and flies in the house (summer)! All of which we take as normal!

The house is unusually warm for a farmhouse as it is heated by our wood boiler. This is filled twice daily by our farm staff when we are away.
