Good Hotel Guide Review

A ‘wonderful hot tub in the grounds’ is one of the unexpected delights of Hazel Thompson’s B&B in the Vale of Lorton, close to Loweswater, Buttermere and Crummock Water. The ‘new’ house and adjoining barn are Grade II listed, 18th-century, surrounded by open fields, woods and streams, against a theatrical backdrop of the Lakeland fells. All bedrooms are highly individual and well appointed. Both the Old Dairy and the Stable have a solid-oak four-poster – Old Dairy also sports a Victorian-style bathroom and double-ended freestanding slipper bath. Three spacious main-house rooms have similar character, including Swinside with a double power shower and body jets. On cold days, a huge open fire burns in the tearoom with tables in the old cow byres, where light lunches, cakes and ice creams are served from spring to autumn. It closes for weddings and events, so phone ahead instead of swinging by for tea – or Cumberland ham, Solway shrimps, or Whitby scampi and chips. There’s a beamed residents’ lounge with deep fireside sofas, substantial cooked breakfasts, while Wordsworth’s birthplace, Cockermouth, with restaurants and Jennings brewery, is just six miles away.

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
