Nestled within the North Lakes, wake up to views of one of the most iconic Lake District mountains, Blencathra. Explore life on the farm, and surround yourself with the Sheep, Alpacas & Donkeys.

Stay On The Farm

“This was our 2nd stay at the Garth and won’t be our last, it will always be our first choice when staying in the Lake District, it has everything that you need and more it is just perfect in every way and to top it off the Mill inn is just up the road. Judith has thought of everything possible and the scones and jam are gorgeous, especially after a long journey. Cannot wait to return soon.”

Our Animals

Our second visit to The Garth . It is an exceptional cottage to stay in from all perspectives – great location with a wonderful panorama . Beautifully warm, clean and comfortable with amazing attention to detail when it comes to decor and the practicalities of a self catering holiday – even for the dog ! Have already booked for next year . The red squirrel in the garden is an extra treat.”

Surrounding Area

Our time at the Garth was particularly good for me because I am disabled. The house is very good with respect to access , I could get my powered wheelchair in the porch easily. We stayed entirely on the ground floor which was very spacious it had a bedroom with an en-suite. The owners were really nice and helped me out when I needed it. Also gave me scones on arrival ! From the door were some easy paths into the countryside. We very much enjoyed our stay.
