Red Hall Cottages Amenities

At Red Hall Farm in Cumbria, Martin and Joanne Baird, with their two children, are carrying on a family farming tradition which stretches back more than 200 years but they’re also bang up to date with the concept of smart, sustainable farming in the 21st century. The renovation of an old bothy and grain store into a pair of beautifully contemporary holiday cottages is one key part of this, where families can experience life on a working farm and get closer to nature, whilst staying in the lap of luxury.

Besides taking immense pride in their dairy herd of Holstein Fresians, whose milk goes off to make the award-winning Lake District Cheese, the Bairds have won a stack of awards for their ‘farming for wildlife’ ethos, based on the conservation and creation of habitats as well as running the farm to be genuinely eco friendly. With its own wind turbine, water bore hall and energy efficient electricals, the Farm is virtually energy self sufficient and then the Bairds turned their attention to conservation, planting woodland and creating ponds to attract all kinds of wildlife and birds. Up to 86 species of birds have been spotted so far at Red Hall so remember to pack the binos and get little ones twitching! Martin and Joanne can also take families on a nature walk around their 200 acres and children can help feed their baby calves.

To add the two holiday cottages to Red Hall Farm, the Bairds lovingly converted a 200-year old barn, retaining original features, such as exposed brickwork and oak beams, but also giving them the boutique interior treatment. The spacious living rooms have big comfy sofas to snuggle down by a wood burner and watch the Freesat TV or DVD’s, and all the bedrooms have a TV as well, which helps mum and dad have a few hours peace. A modern version of farmhouse dining kitchens are well equipped for family self catering and ideal for leisurely mealtimes and lingering with a coffee, or families can spill outside to the table and chairs on a paved patio. Beyond the patio children can play in a shared grassy area, with a slide, football goals and ride-on toys, or go on a mini beast hunt in the log piles.

Accommodation overview
