Hi Victoria, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your break despite some less than perfect weather. It's such a shame you missed out on all the lovely warm sunshine just the week before! I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon, fingers crossed for better weather next time!

Lovely Caravan with fantastic views of the surrounding mountains and valley. Total peace and quiet. Really enjoyed staying on a working farm.
Emily from the farm was really helpful and gave us loads of good advice and has good knowledge of the whole area.
The whole Lakes area experienced some wild and stormy weather while we were there. There were several trees blown down. Emily gave us her mobile number to contact if we had any problems getting back to the farm due to the weather. Luckily we didn't need it but it was re-assuring to know that she was there to offer help if we had needed it.
We have been to the Lake District a lot over the past few years and the Newlands Valley has to be one of our favourite parts. Ideal for walking the nearby mountains with some walks straight from the door.

Hi Steve, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you had a great holiday. It's the perfect place to get away from it all for a while isn't it? The Newlands Valley is simply stunning, you couldn't have chosen a better area for getting out on the fells. I'm glad Storm Ali didn't interfere with your holiday too much. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

Fantastic location. The caravan is a bit tired. The shower pole is totally rusty and broken but apart from that everything works really well. The cleaning needs attention, there was food from the previous occupants left in the cupboard, the bath had lots of mud in it and everything was dusty also the double bed had had been changed but the cover had been put on inside out. It just needs more attention to detail. The views from the caravan are outstanding, and our children loved that we were on a working farm and the sheep and cows were in the field next to us. The owners were friendly, weren’t there to greet us but we were able to get in to the caravan. The next day they did come to see us and gave us some local information and had a lovely chat. Really nice lady. Half way through the week we lost water, my husband went to talk to the owners and they said they were sorting it, they had lost water too, and they did. After a few hours the water came back on but we never had a visit from the owner to check if we were ok, or to apologise for the inconvenience this caused. We have a 6 month old baby who needed bottles made up. Which we couldn’t do. So I feel a knock from the owners to talk to us would have been the right thing to do.all in all We did have a lovely week in the lakes and would go back to the caravan. the location and the price point are fantastic.

Hi Laurie. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Newlands. The caravan is in an amazing location, definitely! I'm sorry you had a few problems and I'll certainly be passing on your comments to the owners. I hope you can come back before too long and enjoy another lakeland farm holiday!
