Garthfolds Farmhouse

Lazonby, Cumbria

A peaceful countryside escape in the glorious Eden Valley for families & friends. The views are dreamy, Penrith and Keswick are close


6 bedrooms


Sleeps 10


Along narrow lanes through woods and farmland, set on a quiet rural estate, is your traditional 18th-century farmhouse. Filled with family antiques, it is instantly welcoming and perfect for groups of family or friends, with tons of space to spread out, as well as games and a piano to keep everyone entertained. The two sitting rooms have colourful rugs, art on the walls, comfy sofas; and wood-burners make for cosy evenings. The well-stocked kitchen is a convivial space to prepare group feasts before gathering round the big oak table. Up a steep staircase are five bedrooms (with another single downstairs), all painted in soft colours and eclectically furnished. None have en-suites, but the shower rooms (one up, one down) and family bathroom more than suffice. It’s such a homey place you may not want to leave, but there’s heaps to do in the area: walk to Lacey’s Caves, take a ride on the Settle to Carlisle railway, visit nearby Penrith and Keswick or head to the glorious North Lakes. Head home to lap up stunning views of the Pennines as you barbecue on the patio and the kids run wild in the garden.

Local points of interest from Colette Winter

  • Take a stroll along the public footpaths of the glorious River Eden and try to spot all of the Eden Benchmarks. A series of ten contemporary stone sculptures located at intervals along the length of the River Eden
  • Why not visit one of the finest and the second biggest stone circles in the Country - Long Meg & her Daughters. Dating from approx. 1500BC, local legend is that a witch called Long Meg and her daughters were turned to stone as a punishment.
  • Meander down to Lacey's Caves - A series of five chambers in the red sandstone cliff of River Eden, they are named after Lieutenant-Colonel Samuel Lacy of Salkeld Hall.
  • The Kirkoswald Beer, Cider & Music Festival is a annual festival held in the neighbouring village over one weekend in July. It boasts live music & entertainment across all genres. With stalls selling locally produced food & drink. A real crowd pleaser!
  • Potter around gardens enclosed by 17th Century walls at Acorn Bank. With the largest collection of culinary and medicinal herbs in any National Trust garden and fantastic fruit orchards. Spend some time enjoying the 'silent space'.
  • Host to over 15,000 varieties of plants, Larch Cottage has supplied Kew Gardens, Botanic Gardens Durham. On site the La Casa Verde Restaurant is a ‘hidden gem’ located right the heart of the beautiful gardens, with a Mediterranean lunch & dinner menu.
