Set in lovely, quiet surroundings in rural South Cumbria. This home is a great place from which to visit both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. I offer one double room and one twin- bedded room and a full English or continental breakfast.

The space

This is my family home with a lovely garden and stunning views in every direction and is quiet and peaceful, ideal for a relaxing retreat.

There is a choice of a double room or twin bedded room. The double room, with far-reaching views, has an en-suite shower and sink, whilst the twin room has exclusive use of a downstairs shower room. Both rooms share a toilet/sink room. Tea and coffee making facilities are in the rooms, toiletries and towels are provided. A small fridge is available for perishable goods. The rooms are £70 a night each. For single occupancy of the twin room the charge is £35 a night.

I can offer a choice of full English or continental breakfast with vegetarian options available. Please let me know your requirements when booking. There is a good range of local pubs and restaurants nearby, serving food all day. Something to suit every taste from fish and chips and Pizza Express to fine dining.

The house and garden are not suitable for babies and toddlers.

Guest access

In the summer months, the conservatory is a delightful space in which to eat and relax, however during the cooler months you might take advantage of the sitting room with its log burner and TV. There is plenty of space to be private should you want that. All of this is negotiable.

Interaction with guests

I am happy to spend time with you if you would like that and I can provide maps, ideas of places to visit or walk, packed lunch or be your guide on a day out if I have no other commitments (There would be a reasonable charge to cover fuel and additional food. I would also need some notice to shop for food for packed lunches)

Other things to note

I have a well-behaved boxer dog, who loves to be everyone’s friend, and for that reason, I would want to do some negotiation before welcoming other pets to my home.

My preference would be to host people who are part of a couple or a group of friends. Single women travellers would also be welcome.
Please tell me a little about your group when you make an enquiry.

Very gracious host and very helpful in accomadating our change in arrival. Excellent full English breakfast. Very beautiful garden and picturesque surroundings. Charming sleeping quarters. While a bit off the beaten path, it is well worth the effort to stay at Heather's place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief visit to Heather's place in Hincaster. Heather (and her super-friendly-and-playful dog, Amber) have a beautiful and spotlessly clean home in the countryside, and we couldn't have asked for a more comfortable space to spend the night. When we woke up in the morning, Heather even offered me the opportunity to take a long walk with Amber along the local footpath before serving us the best breakfast we had in all of England.

Heather was a superb host and her place is just like in the photos. It is in an excellent location with short distances to the attractions like Beatrix Potter's house and Lake Windermere. Heather gave great food recommendations for pubs in the area, and we recommend the Strickland Arms pub which is very near her place. Heather's breakfast provided is just divine, a full English breakfast and we felt very spoilt! Her attention to detail is unparalleled with tea and coffee provided in the room, and a very spotless room. Thanks for a wonderful stay, Heather. If I visit the Lake District again, your place would be top of my list.

We had a great but short stay. Arrived relatively late at night and had to leave early next day, but the peacefulness and views, especially of the breakfast room, were worth it. Heather was very gracious and accommodating and really enjoyed talking to her. She helped us find food late at night and her directions to get there, which can be complicated, were really helpful. Would love to have stayed longer.
