Barn Court Cottage has 5 bedrooms sleeping 14-15 guests plus cots. Free wifi. Hot tubs available to hire on site set in their own large wooden gazeboo within the barns private garden area.
Guests staying at Barn Court Cottage are given the opportunity to have a one off close-up encounter with our Alpacas, feed them and experience their placid, inquisitive nature (usually 1/2 hour) An experience not to be missed by both young and old, many previous guests have said it was the highlight of their stay and some have even gone as far as to say it was one of the best experiences of their life so far.
We try to be as organic and green friendly as possible on our Alpaca farm and we are proud to say we have one of the rarest upland meadow fields in Cumbria and slowly we are transforming our other adjoining fields in to meadows. Our water is supplied from a natural spring, as good if not better than bottled water, in our opinion anyway, and we have our own wind turbine supplying electricity to Simgill Farm main house.
We have an ever growing herd of 85 Alpacas which graze the 40 acres and can be seen from the self catering cottages.
