The views from the farmhouse are beautiful; across the valley, which is wooded, to the high fells of the Howgills.
Goodies is very private and is surrounded by open fields, woods and mountains. The garden areas are fenced and safe for young children to play in. There are many quaint little villages nearby with good restaurants and several country pubs, which serve excellent meals.
Wonderful walks, far from the crowds, start straight from the door yet within 35 minutes' drive are all the amenities of the central Lake District.
