My place is on a small, Lakeland farm set up on a hillside with wonderful views down to the Duddon estuary. You could be woken by George the cockerel who wanders the yard with his bevy of hens; otherwise, it's a wonderfully quiet, peaceful spot – on a Bank Holiday two or three walkers might pass by! The hens and three cats hang out in the yard, various sheep breeds, four ponies, and a scattering of cows populate the fields, and beyond that a gate opens to the fells.

A friend's enthusiasm sent us looking for Kate's place and we were not disappointed. Just as we'd heard, it was lovely to look at, peaceful and relaxed, off the beaten track in beautiful hill farm surroundings. We were unfortunate with the weather (heavy rain every day for our week!), which kept us on the premises more than we'd planned. Although this was frustrating, Kate and her house made it a good holiday: we enjoyed her company, great breakfasts, log fire, library, chickens, bird-feeder, cats. We really were encouraged to treat the place as home. Views around the property are glorious and we enjoyed walking out when we could. This cat-lover couldn't believe her luck in being entertained by Kate's family of kittens, a happy accident of timing. "A perfect antidote to the angst and paranoia of metropolitan living."- my husband, Pete

Incredible. First time using airbnb and I couldn't be happier. We had an amazing trip made even more amazing by staying at an adorable farm house with a fantastic host. P.S a must for animal lovers!

A beautiful house in a stunning location. Kate is a great host, very friendly and welcoming. It was the perfect place to arrive after a long drive- and felt really cosy with an open fire. Tasty breakfast and lots of interesting things around the house which our 6 month old son loved! Hopefully we can stay again in he future. Thanks.

Best Airbnb ever - my partner and I totally fell in love with Kate's beautiful home! Tucked away up on a hill near Broughton-in-Furness, Kate's farmhouse definitely provided the wonderful rural retreat promised. We stayed for two nights, arriving late at night without any difficult, thanks to Kate's detailed directions. Our stay was very comfortable and both Kate and her son Jesse made us feel at home. Kate offered a delicious breakfast of homemade bread, freshly-laid eggs from Dotty the hen, fruit, yogurt, cereal and an assortment of teas. With 5 very playful kittens and Mum around the kitchen (as well as an occasional wander in by Dotty), our breakfasts were never short of entertainment. For dinners in the village, do book ahead of time as per Kate's suggestion. Would highly recommend!

Kate is a lovely host and the place is really sweet. Quite difficult to get to, but such a comfortable place- the national trust house, and wonderful to go for a quiet walk around the farmhouse. We really enjoyed fresh eggs and also the homemade bread that Kate baked for us :)

I've lived in the Lake District for nearly 30 years, eighteen of those in this wonderful old house. I work for book publishers, and as a photographer, shooting weddings, real estate, documentary work and other things, and in my free time love tending my veggie garden or getting out on personal photographic projects. I'm fortunate to live in a place where simply walking out the door can be a sensuous adventure. I've watched my wonderful family grow up here and move on, and so there is space in my home to share with you, my guests.
