Here at Swarthbeck Farm we offer a choice of five very different properties in a stunning situation above Ullswater. All are traditional indigenous buildings, no new-builds or barn conversions.

Very suitable for large family groups, one sleeps 14, two 8 and one 6. However smaller parties are equally welcome and all are dog-friendly. We are situated under 3 miles from the village of Pooley Bridge and just 8 miles from Penrith and the M6 motorway.
