About Fieldgate Farmstead

Fieldgate Farmstead is a large holiday home just outside the village of Bampton near Penrith in the Lake District National Park. The owners took two years to lovingly restore and renovate the farmhouse and barn to provide welcoming and comfortable self-catering accommodation for up to 38 people in 15 bedrooms plus four sofa beds. The size of the house, combined with the spectacular views and location within easy reach of the M6 and less than four miles to the village of Shap, makes it perfect for a group holiday with your extended family and friends, whether they're coming from England, Scotland, Wales, or even overseas via Manchester Airport. It's a great choice if you're looking for a suitable property for a reunion, accommodating wedding parties or out-of-town guests for a special event, or as the setting for a milestone birthday or an anniversary.

Bampton is in the Lowther Valley near the east Lakeland fells. It's close to the slow-flowing River Lowther (a favourite with dry fly anglers), four miles from Shap, ten miles south of Penrith and 30 miles south of Cumbria. There is a local village shop and cafe in Bampton, a Coop, cafe and pubs in nearby Shap and a variety of pubs, cafes, restaurants and big supermarkets in Penrith. Morrisons and Sainsbury's supermarkets deliver to the cottage. This region feels unlike any other part of the Lake District due to the wealth of natural limestone that has shaped the landscape and the lives of people who have lived here. There's a beautiful mix of architecture as seen in Fieldgate Farmstead - the barn's rustic exterior dates from the end of the 1600s while the Grade-II listed farmhouse has typical late-Georgian symmetry and features.

Things to do during your stay include walking a stretch of the Coast to Coast Walk that passes through nearby Shap, sailing or swimming in Ullswater. Haweswater Reservoir is a lovely spot within walking or cycling distance of the house, offering spectacular views and, when the water is low, a glimpse of the buildings of Measand and Mardale Green that were flooded to make way for the dam. You're only a few miles from the North Yorkshire Moors and less than an hour's drive from Keswick, Windermere, and Scafell Pike's base.

Fieldgate Farmstead is two properties - a farmhouse sleeping 16 people in eight bedrooms and a converted barn sleeping 14 people in seven bedrooms. You can book the properties separately for smaller groups. Please see the owner's website for more information.

Location (The Lake District)

Accommodation Comprises:

Fieldgate Farmstead comprises a Grade-II listed Georgian farmhouse with a modern extension and an older barn. The properties can either be rented out together or separately.

Fieldgate House:


  • A typical Georgian entrance is given a modern twist with a glossy hot pink door opening into the spacious and welcoming entrance hall.
  • The three-metre long island in the kitchen acts as a magnet for guests who will find themselves gravitating here for good food and great company. The kitchen is in the new part of the house, with high-quality appliances, tiled floors with underfloor heating, a seating area with huge sofas, and enormous windows framing the incredible view.
  • Contrasting with the contemporary kitchen, the dining room is in the original part of the house and features large sash windows, a built-in dresser, seating for 16 people, and a door that opens into the rear garden.
  • Two reception rooms allow flexibility if some people want to chat, play snooker, or listen to music, while others would instead light the fire and settle down to read or nap. A separate basement TV room is perfect for keeping the kids happy.
  • One of the eight bedrooms is in the original farmhouse on the ground floor, featuring underfloor heating, fantastic views, and two single beds.
  • Bathe or shower in the contemporary tiled bathroom with a deep designer bath, walk-in shower, WC and a handbasin.


  • Four further bedrooms are on the first floor of the original house. There are three doubles, one with a superking (6ft-wide bed), one king, and one double. All are beautifully furnished to suit the property's age, with beds made up for the arrival of guests. A fourth bedroom has bunk beds for children or teenagers.
  • The extension houses three more bedrooms, one king and two double. Each has an ensuite with a shower, WC and a handbasin.

Fieldgate Barn:

Accommodation is over two floors and includes:

  • Original stones peeking through modern plaster, an open plan living space with a vaulted ceiling, oak beams, and a log burner. The ground floor has underfloor heating to keep you cosy during Cumbrian winters.
  • A country kitchen with modern appliances includes a five-burner stove, double oven, dishwasher, and big fridge/freezer.
  • Two ensuite bedrooms, a second living room with a big screen TV and a smaller kitchen. This suite of rooms has external access and can be separate if you have staff or grandparents who need a private space.
  • Spacious king-sized bedroom with external access and an ensuite with a shower, bath, WC and a handbasin.
  • Quad/family room with a double bed, sofa bed, and an ensuite shower room.
  • Two more double ensuite rooms, one with a shower and the other with a bath.

Outside: Fieldgate Farmstead has a large patio with a dining table and chairs, a lawn with mature trees, a seating area with a fire pit, and ample parking.

Additional Information: WiFi, utilities and bed linen are included when you hire Fieldgate. A highchair and a travel cot are available, though guests will need to provide cot bedding. Well-behaved dogs are welcome by arrangement. Smoking is not permitted.
