Location

Toddles Barn is tucked away in the corner of the traditional farming village of Skelton nestling in the Cumbrian countryside. Close to the Lake District and ideal for Ullswater only 15 mins away and the market town of Penrith 10 mins away with easy access for the M6 motorway means that you can soon be relaxing in this wonderful hidden gem.

The occasional cow from our neighbouring farm may break the silence and if you are lucky they will sometimes walk right past your bedroom window on the way to the fields to graze in summer. The church bell will ring on Sunday at 11 am and sometimes on a Thursday at 8 am to start the day.

Westoe Cottage is less than 5 minutes walk away from Toddles Barn, in the same village. The two cottages are close enough together for a group to book both cottages at the same time - and use the larger cottage, Toddles Barn, as the base for socialising or for meals.
