Our roundhouse is on a working farm with Swaledale and Blackfaced sheep and heavy horses (which you can book to ride!) in a beautiful valley in south west Cumbria. It has amazing views, a stream running nearby, is peaceful with good interior facilities. Close to us are a variety of good pub/restaurants (would recommend having a car though). You’ll love our roundhouse, it is unique, cosy, romantic, has a stunning location, and is good for couples, friends, outdoor folk, and we take dogs.
Our personally made beautiful roundhouse (NB new roof November 2016!) is set in an idyllic location in the south west corner of the Lake District National Park on a working farm. The combination of soft wood and circular shape creates a very relaxing place - with the wood burning stove and dined lights it can be both practical (it has full electric and water) and very romantic! It has a lovely big bed for two, if more can sleep 4/5; the kitchen is fully appointed (induction hob, toaster, kettle microwave and fridge!) and sink with hot water. The showers and toilets are outside the Roundhouse only 20m away and immaculately clean. Enjoy!
Accès des voyageurs
The Roundhouse is situated on our campsite on a raised terrace with easy access to toilets and showers as well as washing facilities with hot water in addition to that in the roundhouse. It is on a working farm with cows sheep and horses so for health and safety reasons it's not possible to access other areas of the farm but there are some lovely walks directly from the site up onto Black and White Combe. The beach - glorious miles of largely unoccupied sand- is only 3 miles away, 5 minutes drive. Currently we are developing some areas of the site but would hope that this is not creating any inconvenience to our visitors.

CJ and I run Baystone Bank Farm, our lovely Fell Farm in the Whicham Valley in the south west of the Lake District National Park. CJ originally comes from Devon, Annie from Cambridge. Annie is horse mad - Cumbrian Heavy Horses is her business and passion - whilst farming is in CJ's blood! We are both lucky to be able to do something we love in such a stunning place. CJ built the roundhouse himself, he's a talented fabricator and engineer, he also rides, and between us we also manage the sheep; Annie runs the equine side of things! We bought this farm in Feb 2015 so still have loads to do to get the farm how we want it!
We both currently live to work, but hope that as the various aspects of the farm consolidate we can relax a little. Annie is a keen scuba diver (favourite destination Thailand!) whilst CJ is planning to develop farming with Galloway cattle. We both enjoy the cameraderie of Steam Fairs (see us at Great Dorset Steam Show every year!) and for relaxation a glass or two of wine or a decent real ale or proper cider, along with good company or a good film night is hard to beat! We both love a good curry in fact we enjoy cooking although working as hard as we do at the moment time to cook properly - ie with wine!- is a rarity
