The
Experience

Tucked into the hillside off a narrow lane, this 1750s smallholding is surrounded by fells, so is perfect for walkers. Absolute privacy for friends or family with your own entrance to a beamed, stone-flagged sitting room with a wood-burning stove, and cheery floral curtains. Warm bedrooms have original paintings, good beds, hot water bottles, bathrobes and a sparkling bathroom with a loo with a remarkable view. Malcolm and Marjorie are totally committed to organic food – you get a welcoming pot of tea and cake on arrival and a fabulous breakfast. They’ll give you good advice about the local area too. Fell walking is not compulsory!

Reviews

We loved this place. The accommodation was very comfortable and relaxing and our hosts Marjorie and Malcolm were delightful people with a lovely sense of humour, making their company very easy. They made sure our needs were met above and beyond and helped us map out our activities during our stay. We walked around Ullswater which was one of the most delightful and scenic walks in the whole UK. We highly recommend this place to stay. We wish we had stayed longer. Thank you for having us.

Isobel

Not just a heaven for walkers, a wonderful place to stay for anyone. Truly lovely and comfortable accommodation, warm welcome and brilliant breakfasts. We hope to be back yet again next year

Karen

Tucked away in beautiful Matterdale yet readily accessible to all major routes, a visit to Greenah is well recommended. Marjorie and Malcolm are the most welcoming and hospitable of hosts and have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and extra special. Excellent accommodation, excellent quality breakfasts and even before we have left, we are looking forward to returning. Thank you from us both.
