Amazing stay!! It was our first time staying in the western lakes and it was great. So quiet and relaxed, we enjoyed every second. We couldnt recommend The swift enough. The owners of the farm were so welcoming, nothing was a bother! Our dog Axel thoroughly enjoyed the company of the two farm dogs (one who was Axels actual twin) Bonus was only a 1Read more0 min walk to two lovely pubs, great food and atmosphere! 10/10 will be back! Thanks for having us Hide

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay - very comfortable lodge in beautiful surroundings. Really easy to get around to different sites and walks. Hosts were lovely and had a lot of local knowledge which was appreciated. If you have a reactive dog and need an enclosed garden, this isn't the place for you. While the farm is enclosed, the fields/farm land are eaRead moresy for dogs off lead to explore. Lovely place and would recommend/book again. Hide

Fantastic property, loved our stay! Location was stunning, out of the way of everything & still had 2 lovely country pubs within a 10 minute walk. Owners were very welcoming/hospitality was fantastic. Our dog was allowed free roam & made 2 new friends with Luna & Jip the farm dogs (think he enjoyed the stay more than us). Considering how out of theRead more way the property is, there was loads to do with walks round the lake, country pubs, shopping trips to cockermouth/keswick, St Bees beach. 100% recomm Hide
