Click here for a 30 second video clip Welcome to Fornside, our family farm near Keswick in the Lake District. We have four lovely self catering cottages converted from stone barns, equipped, furnished and maintained to a high standard (awarded 4 stars by Visit Britain).
We farm 75 acres of beautiful countryside with spectacular views. We keep sheep, ducks, free range hens and a pony. Visitors are welcome to meet and feed our animals, and depending on the time of year can even help around the farm. April is the best time for this as you can visit the lambing shed anytime and see the newborn lambs!
The cottages are peacefully located and yet we are within easy reach of Keswick, Grasmere, Ambleside and all the other attractions of the Lake District National Park.
We are on hand to offer advice on activities and places to eat, but are just as happy to leave you to enjoy a relaxing holiday here.
Please explore our website for more details. If you want any further information, please telephone or email.
