Stay in a converted Barn on a working farm. Enjoy local produce, tranquility, adventure, it's up to you! A stunning and timeless setting for you to explore. Lake District, Eden Valley and outstanding local attractions on your doorstep.
Voted in The Guardian as ‘one of the 10 ten best back-to-nature stays in England', 2016.
Stay in a beautifully restored Barn at the heart of our farm. Widewath Barn is Grade II Iisted and has been sympathetically restored to retain original features including open stone walls and wooden beams.
Widewath Barn is a small sole occupancy self catering unit sleeping 2 - 4 people. The bedroom has bunk beds and a double bed. The restored stable stall provides a privacy screen in the bedroom. Relax around the large pine farmhouse table in the living/dining room. Retire into a secluded space, the 'snug,' to pour over maps and plan routes for the following day's activity.
There is a fully equipped kitchen with electric oven, microwave, kettle, toaster and a shower room with a spacious shower cubicle with powerful shower and a great vintage armitage shanks sink!
A wood pellet boiler provides hot water and underfloor heating, keeping the Barn toasty warm.
A traditional stable block opposite provides plenty of space for dirty boots/wet jackets, a spot of bike maintenance or even a game of table tennis!
There is secure cycle storage for 6 bikes.
Catch the sun in the quiet orchard.
We give tours of the farm but for safety reasons, please do not enter the farmyard without us. We want to keep you safe.
We're happy to answer all your questions about the Farm and the area!
As the Barn is on a working farm we do not take dogs.
This is a non-smoking property.
We live in the farmhouse adjoining the Barn. We enjoy company and a chat and will respect your space and hope that you'll respect ours too!
I live at Widewath Farm with my husband and 2 sons. We enjoy everything outdoors!! The Farm, family and my part-time job as a Farm Conservation Adviser take up much of my time. In my spare time (!) I enjoy cycling, horse riding and walking with family and friends.
We enjoy having people to stay and are keen to help them make the most of this amazing part of the Lake District. Never a dull moment here!!
