Harebeck Cottage

2 Bedrooms | Sleeps 6

A traditional Cumbrian farmhouse located on a working farm, surrounded by open countryside, and with far-reaching views of the western fells including Scafell Pike, the Screes and Great Gable. The cottage in parts dates back to the 1700s and is full of character including the original slate floor in the living room, the warmth from the Aga stove, through to the feature fireplace. The cottage is accessed by a single track lonning and is attached to the owner’s home.

Our Working Farm

Thornbank is a traditional working farm, owned and managed by Brian and Cathryn, Cumbrians born and bred (true Cumberland folk). have an affinity with the fells and surrounding area. They have knowledge of smugglers coves and hidden beaches with folk lore passed down through the generations. Like all local people they are proud, friendly, resilient and optimistic leading a quieter life with placid cows, cosy cats and curious tenacious sheep.

Don’t forget to bring your wellies and ask for a tour around the farm, to be arranged direct with Cathyrn.
