Goodcroft is a remote farmhouse situated on the coast to coast path at the confluence of the Swindale Beck with the Lowther River among the Fairy Crags. You will have the downstairs of the east barn for your stay: A bedroom with an adjacent bathroom which has a large shower, toilet and sink; A kitchen with a washing machine, fridge and baby belling type stove with a small oven - we can place larger items in the oven next door if you fancy a roast. The living room has a TV with many DVDs.


Goodcroft is an old farm steading that was built in the 1700's among the Fairy Crags. We have converted it using recycled materials where possible, including old scaffolding boards, sheep fleece insulation and insulating recycled glass aggregate instead of sub-base below the underfloor heating.
The farmhouse is remote and accessed by a 400 metre long stone track. This means it is situated in a beautiful, secluded and peaceful spot near the pilgrims' bridge over the Swindale Beck, leading to Shap Abbey which is 20 minutes walk over the river.
Walking from the door up Selside or into Mosedale is a delight - why not take a refreshing swim in the beck? A life affirming experience any day of the year!
You can meet Magic, our pet sheep and her friends, plus the hens, dogs and cats and assorted amazing wildlife and Fell Ponies that live around Goodcroft.

Dostupno gostima

You will have dedicated use of the downstairs of the east barn including bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen. You have your own access from the the north side of Goodcroft. There are family bedrooms in the upstairs of the barn. A staircase leads from your space to the upstairs where these rooms are but this staircase is not used at all by the family. You may hear some movement upstairs - the floorboards creak quite a lot but we will endeavor to keep this to a minimum and respect your right to well earned lie - in!

Interakcija s gostima

Rich and I live with our five children in the farmhouse and the upstairs of the east barn. We will be around for any queries, advice or help needed.

Ostale napomene

Access could be tricky if you have a very low profile car (that you weren't happy to leave at the lane end and walk up) or if you or any of your party are not confident on your feet, since the track can be quite rough and uneven. The ground is steep in places and there is cattle grid to cross. The site is exposed and the weather can occasionally be a little extreme!

Goodcroft is a nice quiet place at countryside. It is easily access by car. Very close to two lakes, Haweswater and Ullswater. Nicole is great host with lovely place to share with you. She is happy to share information about a surrounding area and give you some tips about places to discover. House is cozy and very clean! Highly recommend, if you want to slow down from city life.

I booked Goodcroft for my wedding photographer to stay in for the weekend of my wedding at the Haweswater Hotel. Nicola was really accommodating to let me book it for the weekend and for my photographer to stay there. I can not be more positive about Nicola and all her impeccable communication with me. And my photographer loved Goodcroft too - a perfect hideaway in the far eastern fells.

This place is amazing. We loved it. Stayed for 4 nights and could happily have stayed longer. Super cosy but also lovely and spacious for 2. Beautifully designed. Hope to return!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Goodcroft for 2x nights after an active, busy stay at a YHA in the Western Lakes. The barn is warm, very spacious for 2 adults and offers great facilities for cooking, relaxing and Goodcroft is a brilliant base from which to explore the Eastern fells. We really enjoyed the remote setting and clear distance from motorised sounds. Also, The Crown and Mitre in Bampton Grange (5mins drive) serves excellent food and decent-sized portions, plus tasty local ales. We ran directly from the barn along the North-Western shores of Haweswater, up Gategarth pass, and returned via the summits of Branstree and Selside before descending down the Old Corpse Road, and back along Swindale. Amazing scenery on the cusp of Autumn. Walkers could easily do similar maybe over a shorter route. The revitalising shower was a luxury worth returning to. And we will DEFINITELY return for another stay and would recommend Goodcroft to anyone, particularly those who enjoy the charms of quiet, rural life.

Nicolas place is a hidden gem. It is a beautifully refurnished old barn, bringing together the perfect mix of modern and old. I was positively surprised of the space we were offered. The kitchen has basic appliances needed to make food, the TV room is stacked with DVDs and the bed is really comfortable. It was like having your own apartment. There are hiking possibilities from the house, however you would have to expect to drive a little to find the majorities of hikes. Haweswater is about a 30-40 min drive, Ullswater/Patterdale around 60 min.

Perfect place to stop walking the coast to coast path. Nicola was extremely helpful and welcoming! Couldn't have asked for more.

The converted barn we stayed in at Nicola's home was amazing! The accommodation was cosy, secluded, comfortable and provided everything we could of asked for. Nicola was a very welcoming host with good knowledge of the area and suggestions of both walks and places to eat.
