This impressive holiday home is situated on the edge of Whinlatter Forest Park, providing you and your fellow guests with a fabulous selection of walks and bike rides directly from your front door.

Once inside, a warm welcome awaits, thanks to two roaring wood burners and cosy underfloor heating. At the heart of the home is the vast kitchen/diner. This space is ideal for hosting dinner parties, with a chic kitchen, double oven, and large dining table to seat everyone. The kitchen/diner is full of character, with a beamed ceiling and elegant slate flooring. The spacious property boasts two reception rooms; come together to watch a film on the TV in the lounge or get cosy in the snug with your favourite book. This room also has a TV/DVD, so there’s no need to argue over what to watch! An original staircase, with many steps and turns, leads to the four bedrooms, so take care when ascending and descending. The farmhouse has two outdoor areas, meaning you can follow the sun throughout the day. There’s an enclosed lawn to the front of the property, and a large patio to the rear where you can enjoy evening meals under the stars. The property has ample off-road parking.

Hall Garth Farm is perfectly situated for a relaxing holiday and cleanliness was excellent throughout. Unfortunately, one major issue was that the heating was locked and we were unable to adjust the temperature in any of the rooms. We found the kitchen and downstairs rooms to be cold.

We had a fantastic week. It was all go with mountain biking, walking, quad biking and lake swimming all reasonably close-by. The house is lovely and very well-equipped. Great location, very peaceful and lovely views. The only drawback was that some of the low doorways and high steps into/out of rooms caused us more injuries than the mountain-bikingRead more!! It was worth it though. But might be worth taking into consideration if you're elderly, have mobility issues, or are just clumsy! Hide

The best cottage in 18 years! Two small niggles were that there was no plug on the bath and in the second double bedroom ensuite the small showerhead didn't work although Read morethe main rainwater shower was great.
