The farms cover some 500 acres in the Cartmel valley, including woods, park and fell land, dotted with charming Victorian follies - and you are welcome, as our guests here, to open your door, and explore wherever you wish...

The tiny river Eea meanders past dry-stone walls to the paddock behind the house,
and on through the meadows with small hump-back bridges and slate-flag crossings
to take you on your way.

Little Heaning, our private wood - up the lane behind the cottage is a peaceful
haven of flowers, birds and wildlife... go spotting deer and badgers or admire
a mist of bluebells among the primroses in the Spring.

Further along, past the old Victorian summer house, Hampsfell rises gently to
800 feet, surmounted by the "Hospice of Hampsfell" - a cut limestone tower with
a wonderful all-round vista over Morecambe Bay, the Pennines and Lake District fells.

As this peninsula has a considerably milder climate than more northerly parts of the Lake District, it is particularly suitable for visits out of season.
