Good Hotel Guide Review

‘People go to the Lakes for beauty, peace and solitude. New House Farm has all of this in abundance.’ Close to Wordsworth’s birthplace, Hazel Thompson’s ‘beautifully restored’ Grade II listed 17th-century farmhouse marries the romance of tradition with the comfort of modern amenities. While the vast, fells-flanked setting is expansive, the house is warm and cosseting, with oak beams, flagged floors, an open stone fireplace. Check in to bedrooms individually decorated with rich red fabrics and dark wood furniture. The Stable Room has a king-size four-poster bed and uninterrupted views towards Fellbarrow and Low Fell; the Old Dairy has quirky tapestries, a Victorian bathroom with a slipper bath. Book the hot tub in the ‘wonderful’ gardens with views of the fells. At dinner, the hostess cooks traditional English dishes, perhaps local poached salmon, pesto sauce; ginger pudding, butterscotch sauce. Start the day with croissants ‘straight from the Aga’. A reliable Cumbrian base: stop in the market town of Cockermouth on your way to St Bees, where the Coast to Coast Walk begins. More reports, please.

Guest comments

'Stayed here five years running, best B&B in the Lakes, peaceful, quiet, wonderful hot tub in grounds, wonderful host in Hazel Thompson, everything about it is five star, rooms, breakfast, roaring log fire, wish we were still there. ' - John Thompson - January, 2017
'Got married at New House Farm. The house is beautifully decorated and clean, stone floors, beam ceilings and open fires with wonderful gardens surrounded by Lake District fells are just some of it's qualities. Although some of the larger towns in the Lake District are lovely, lots of people go to the lakes for beauty, peace and solitude, New House Farm has all of this in abundance. ' - Donna Parker - June, 2013
