John and Tina Brown have lived in Andrew House in the Eden district of Cumbria, just outside the Lake District National Park, since 1995.
“We refurbished part of the main house as the Cottage in 1997,” explains Tina, “and it’s proved popular with couples of all ages, especially anyone seeking a peaceful spot away from the honeypots of the Lake District but still only a short distance from the fells. We created the Barn in 2014 as family-sized self-catering accommodation and it also backs on to our very own hay meadow.”
- The Cottage sleeps 2 in one double bedroom.
- The Barn sleeps 4 in two bedrooms, one a double and one a twin.
- Both properties have great views and overlook beautiful gardens.
- Plenty of parking as well as storage for bikes and canoes.
- Quiet and secluded, Andrew House is just one field away from the Lake District National Park.
- Easy access to the M6 and A66 mean that Stainton is an easy drive to all of northern and western Cumbria, including Carlisle and Hadrian’s Wall, and into the Lake District.
We love where we live – our home, the gardens, the village of Stainton and the surrounding landscape. And we enjoy helping our visitors to make the most of the area and to find their own perfect holiday.
Lovely welcome and little extras‘Lovely welcome and little extras. Gorgeous garden added to our enjoyment as we explored the North Eastern Fells. So peaceful here and so relaxing especially as we enjoyed the sunshine of the final two days. We hope to come back to such lovely friendly people and wonderful setting.’
A great base from which to explore the Lake District‘The hosts are friendly and respected our privacy, and were always on hand to make sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible (they even made sure the bird feeders were filled up in the garden – loved watching the woodpeckers and all of the other different birds that visited!) The best bit for us was probably sitting in the garden in the evening, overlooking the meadow watching the sun go down each night! If you’re a walker or climber you’ll love the vast array of books and maps in the bookcase! We will definitely stay here again as it’s ideal for anyone who wants a bit of peace and quiet and a great base from which to explore the Lake District.’
