Come and stay on a working hill farm in the heart of the English Lake District, so beautiful that the valley was chosen

for the opening scenes of the Beatrix Potter Film "Miss Potter", staring Renée Zellweger and Ewan McGregor.

Askill is a working sheep and beef farm with plenty going on at any time of year.

Bumper quads for this mum !

The static caravan, situated just above the farm house, is 28" long and will sleep 6 people. 

Accommodation consists of :-


• double bedroom, bunk room and dining area which makes a double bed.

• bathroom with toilet, shower and hand basin

• well equipped kitchen with electric cooker, microwave, fridge and kettle, pots, pans and cutlery

• lounge area with electric heater, with views from the window of the fells surrounding Loweswater Lake.

Blankets, duvets and pillows provided. Linen can be provided for a small extra charge.


As this is a working farm, but dogs are welcome by prior arrangement,

We ask that they are not left in the caravan unattended.

Should you wish to travel, the market town of Cockermouth is 8 miles, Keswick or the famous Honister mines are just 10 miles away.

If your interests are more Roman orientated try Maryport, steeped in Roman history, Carlisle or Hadrian's Wall which are all within a day's travel.
