SELF-CATERING Farm Holidays.
If your required week is full do email us anyway as some guests often have to change dates.
All the autumn calvers have calved so we hope they can stop outside for a few more weeks. One had twins which are very equal in size and the cow has plenty of milk for both which are doing well. The rest are in different fields with their calves. Thank God we have had rain to grow their food but now we could do with a little less rain and some winter sunshine. Stuart’s handful of ‘Dalesbred’ sheep are doing well and regrown their nice thick winter coats. Their lambs did OK this year.
We have enabled wheelchair users, other disabled guests, families and able-bodied people to enjoy a comfortable holiday here at Mitchelland Farm Cumbria for over 26 years. ‘First Light’ cottage now has a simple ceiling-track hoist which seems to help the carer transfer guests with less mobility. A Mobile Hoist is still available.
Guests enjoy watching wildlife, especially birds, from the comfort and tranquility of the self-catering Log-Cottages on this small working farm near Bowness-on-Windermere.
Our two cottages have grass and wild-flower roofs. They are very spacious and sleep four. Both have a house bathroom as well as a large wet-room en-suite to the twin bedroom (one of the single beds is a Hi-Lo adjustable, profile bed) making life easier, independent wheelchair users love the open plan layout in the living area with the kitchen worktops at different heights. Everyone enjoys the luxury of our Electric Riser/Recliner chairs with open views over farmland and fell. Bird lovers inform us the bird variety has increased probably due to extra hedgerows.
Our semi-hardy beef-cows produce us good hardy calves and most of the year live out in the fields and wooded fell area, enjoying some winter sunshine between showers when the youngsters run under the trees for protection, only coming into the cow-shed to calve. The sheep are out all year.
