Idyllic 5* Lakeland Farmhouse with wonderful views

Beautiful lounge with original oak beams, oak floor with Persian rugs, very comfortable Duresta two seater sofa, three seater sofa and armchair, open fire for coal and logs, 42" smart TV, dvd, video, lamps, wall lights, oak bookcase, piano, desk, handwritten information guide, local maps, magazines, books, chess set and games. The dining area has a magnificent 16th century oak refectory table and eight carved oak chairs.

The conservatory with stunning views of the mountains and surrounding countryside; a unique and very special place, utterly peaceful and private with glorious views, lovely relaxing atmosphere and very comfortable sofas.

For eating outside there is a terrace with table and chairs and wonderful mountain views. The newly fitted kitchen is fully equipped with granite worktop, oak cupboards, Neff electric double oven and gas hob. Miele dishwasher, fridge, excellent cookware and pretty china, small table and chairs, inglenook fireplace with cast iron stove, terracotta tiled floor, oak beams, bookcase and spice cupboard. A utility room houses a microwave, large freezer, additional full-size fridge (ideal for drinks and extra food storage) and Bosch washing machine.

The old oak staircase leads up to the three bedrooms, all with sumptuously comfortable beds (Vi-Spring, etc.) to ensure a blissful night’s sleep; twin room (can be made into a 6’ double on request), double room with 5’ carved oak bed, and master bedroom (5’ bed) with lovely views; this room has a good size en suite shower room. The family bathroom has bath and shower.

The scenery around the farmhouse is stunningly beautiful; a lovely Westmorland valley where little has changed over the centuries, with high fells, woodland, meadows and rushing river. Wild flowers flourish and wildlife abounds; deer, otters, peregrine falcons, and many other rare birds.

Wonderful walks, far from the crowds, start straight from the door - some gentle, some challenging - and upon which you will rarely meet anyone else. A handwritten guidebook, describes these walks and equally beautiful ones nearby.

One of the greatest delights of staying at Goodies Farmhouse is being able to lace up your walking boots and explore the glorious river which flows through this enchanting valley. Perfect for lazing away an idyllic afternoon, with rocky pools and shady glens, being gently lulled by the sound of tumbling water and glimpsing the flash of turquoise on the Kingfisher’s wing. In all weathers this is a lovely walk; lazy and soporific in the summer; exhilarating and brisk in the winter, gentle if you stay by the river, challenging if you make a day of it and walk up into the high fells.

The quaint nearby village of Sedbergh has several antique shops, a good pub and homemade bakery. Dent is a pretty village with cobbled streets and interesting art galleries, and Kirkby Lonsdale is just lovely; touristy but unspoilt, this beautiful, tiny market town has interesting shops, great places for lunch, cafe bars with pretty gardens, good restaurants, an attractive ancient church and riverside walks.

Windermere is 30 minutes away with all the activities of the Lake District to discover; lake sailing on Ullswater, rowing on Grasmere, easy climbing up Cat Bells by Derwentwater, GoApe Tree Top Adventure in Grisedale Forest, visiting Beatrice Potter's House, Wordsworth's Grasmere, coffee at Miller Howe (wonderful!), lunch at The Mason's Arms at Strawberry Bank (after an easy walk up Gummer's Howe overlooking Windermere) and also suggestions for some of the best walks in the Lake District, often with a country pub along the way; or a boat trip across Ullswater to Howtown with a wonderful walk back along the lake edge to Glenridding.

Quaint, pretty villages, the best of the country pubs, amazing Lakeland scenery, local farm visits and some 'off the beaten track' suggestions too; and always returning to the timeless tranquillity surrounding Goodies Farmhouse.

Restoring Goodies Farmhouse has been immense pleasure and fun. Now, as a trained landscape designer, I am gradually working on the acre of garden.
