We are a small business based on our 5 acre small holding which is home to our Shetland ponies and dog. This is a very quiet location with only two holiday homes. but only a mile and a half from the bustling town of Cockermouth which is on the western side of the Lake District.
Cockermouth is a perfect base for visiting the West Lakes and fells, which have the advantage of being quieter than the Central Lakes, but are every bit as beautiful. Having said that, the Lake District is small enough to tour all of it from Cockermouth. It is also only about eight miles to the Solway Coast with long stretches of sandy beach and wonderful sunsets. This is a superb place to walk dogs as, unlike some places, the beaches are not restricted.
The city of Carlisle is a drive of about twenty five miles and is well worth a visit. It boasts a fine old Castle, a delightful old Cathedral and an excellent Museum. The centre of the city has been virtually re-built but was tastefully done in the original design. Hadrians Wall, the old Roman wall starts just north of Carlisle and runs up through the Border Country.
Cockermouth has a great number of good Restaurants, Takeaways and Pubs that serve bar meals. There are supermarkets that stay open late, all within one mile from Simonscales Mill. The nearest train station is at Workington (8 miles) and Cockermouth is on the long haul bus route from Whitehaven to London.
