A camping barn, self-catering Hayloft, tea garden, woodland/ farm trail and a woodland display form part of the attractions to be found at Low Bridge End. We are situated in the heart of the English Lake District some 6 miles from Keswick. The farm is in an idyllic, peaceful setting overlooking St. John's Beck, with stunning views to Blencathra, Helvellyn and Castle Rock and only 1 mile from Thirlmere lakeshore.
The 50-acre farm is run along traditional and sympathetic lines preserving the outstanding natural beauty and quiet. It has never been intensively farmed, the hens run free, the ducks and geese swim in the beck and the four-legged beasts graze peacefully, even the deer! Mechanical operations are kept to a minimum to preserve the flora, which grows as nature intended without nitrate fertilizers.
The farmhouse is beautifully situated, tucked under a fell with a beck, crossed by our own bridge, in front of it. It has appeared as a typical Lakeland farm in various books. Dippers, kingfishers and herons are among the many birds to be seen in the valley. We have established a lot of woodland, which forms part of the trail much of it is oak and beech as well as Christmas trees and beautiful larch.
