    • “We have stayed at all the cottages at Wydon Farm over the years. We chose Poppy for my birthday being in June you get your own private garden. The lounge is comfortable light and airy with views to the garden and sheep graze the fellside . The kitchen looks out into the garden which has bird feeders with numerous birds visiting. Its very well equipped with all you need . The bedroom is spacious and the bed is new and lovely and comfortable and the window looks out to Blencathra . Fabulous to watch the sunset. There are two fabulous pubs within a short walk both do great food . The owers of the cottages are friendly and helpful nothing is ever to much trouble but at the same time should you wish to hide away you can do just that . Milk wine and biscuits on arrival is a lovely touch. There are magazines to read and plenty of information about the area. The laundry room also has maps and books to borrow and has a large freezer . Parking is in the yard by the cottages which has lighting and there are outside lights on the cottage. The roads leading into the lake's are quick and easy to get to . We had a fantastic holiday cosy and warm despite the lake's weather conditions being wet . Will definitely recommend and return ☺”

    • “Had a fantastic week, (last week in August), everything about our stay was superb. David & Moira have put so much into making it special for their guests, including a bottle of wine and milk on arrival. Food can be bought at the local farm shop which is excellent, and there is everything in the cottage for cooking. There are also a couple of pubs nearby. The bed was very comfortable. We found it a great place for exploring the lakes, as its just off the A66. I would highly recommend !”

The cottage is ideally located just off the A66 and is handy for Penrith, Keswick and Ullswater. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend and will definitely be back.”

    • “David and Moira were so friendly and helpful and very informative in regards to amenities etc. Poppy Cottage itself is fantastic, a real cosy home from home that we didnt want to leave so we will certainly return. The cottage is close to Keswick but there are pubs and farm shop close by and you are in good range of Fells for some lovely walks. We loved our stay there and will return next year, a very cosy couple cottage with a nice woodburner and features, you will not go wrong staying here.”

    • “The cottage itself was beautiful and the grounds surrounding the farm were immaculate, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The phrase "tranquil North Lakes location" is rather inaccurate due to the A66 being 50yds away from the property. It was not a major issue for us at this time of year, but constant road noise in the summer months when visitors use the out door facilities and have cottage windows open would be an annoyance.”

    Mrs Halfpenny, Leek, December 2018

    • “From the first phone call I was blown away as they are very welcoming and helpful, The cottage is amazing very peaceful and we loved the little extras ( tea coffee sugar milk wine etc) they included for when you arrive, The cottage was very clean and well maintained and very comfortable, It was a perfect place to be and we will return and highly recommend the cottage to anyone and they also have bigger ones for family’s, which are also just as wonderful!”

    Miss Boggeln, Maidstone, June 2018

    • “The cottage was easy to find. it was perfect for 2 people. The owners were really helpful and friendly. It was also really central for reaching anywhere in the Lake district and you supplied perfect weather all the week. Thank you”
