“Loved the cottage and the surrounding countryside”
It is always difficult to find wheelchair accessible cottages that also accept dogs. Cobblestone cottage ticked all the right boxes. We thoroughly enjoyed the comfort of the rooms, the farm location and the friendliness of Diane the owner.

Follow this road for another 3 miles, go past Hall Patton farm. When you reach Patton go over bridge into Whinfell, after 100m turn left at sign in wall, Top Thorn farm.
