Crosslands Farm is a typical 17th century Lakeland farmhouse set in the unspoilt Rusland Valley between Coniston Water and Windermere. Close to Grizedale Forest and Hawkshead within the lake district and the furness penninsula
Anne and Dave Robinson have restored the house to modern standards of comfort and have taken great care to preserve the character and calm of the building with, its slate flag floors, beams and other timbers. It is tastefully decorated and furnished. You can be assured of a good traditional breakfast cooked on the farmhouse kitchen Rayburn. Breakfast is served in the dining room which has been converted from the orginal farm dairy. There is still the old cooling slab, ham hooks on the beams and slate flag floors. There is a seperate lounge for you to relax after a good day out. Here there is an ingle nook fire place, original flag floors & lovely view over the garden and across the valley.
Rusland valley is an ideal place for country lovers. There are plenty of space to park your car , at Crosslands and a secure area for your mountain bikes. From here you don't need to use your car. There are many walks for you to enjoy. David is keen on conservation and has developed a new wood with a permissive footpath through it. Here you can enjoy rare flowers, small shrubs and wildlife. Deer are regularly seen along with badgers, moorhens, curlews, barn owls and woodpeckers.
