The Watches

The Watches – Brand new for July 2018

We are pleased to now offer our third holiday home in amongst this most wonderful Lake District farm setting. A purpose-built wooden holiday lodge, The Watches, sits at the top of the meadow and has plenty of space inside and outside whether you’re a couple or a family with children.

The Watches sleeps four with a double room with en-suite shower and toilet plus a twin room with single beds. Outside there is a large decked area for dining or relaxing (though please note on this first picture the decking is incomplete).

Holiday Homes

We have two lovely static holiday homes, Skiddaw and Ullock Pike, both with a great layout, all necessary conveniences and a wrap around veranda with outside dining area. Surrounding the holiday homes there is a large enclosed grassed area with fantastic views of Skiddaw and Ullock Pike.

Much as we love animals, we are a working farm, so can only allow one well-behaved dog in Skiddaw only.

Living Area

The well equipped kitchen area includes gas oven with gas hob, fridge, freezer, microwave and the usual utilities you would expect in a modern kitchen.

The lounge is warm, cosy and a great place to relax in the evening with flat screen tv, dvd player and a selection of dvds.

A door opens onto the wrap around veranda with a table and chairs providing the perfect opportunity to enjoy the views!

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Both homes have two bedrooms the larger of which has a double bed (king size in Ullock) with quality mattress and bedding, wardrobe and small bedside tables. There is also an en-suite w.c.

The second bedroom has two single beds again with quality mattresses and bedding.

In Ullock Pike, on request, one of the beds can be removed and replaced with a travel cot and high chair. Please bring own cot linen .

The bathroom has an electric shower, WC, basin and towel rail.

Linen & towels: all linen and towels are included in the price.


Step out of the door and straight on to the decking complete with chairs and table; a great place to enjoy the views or watch the animals!

Adjacent to both homes there is ample parking.
