Read More

Near Edge Farm is located in the beautiful hamlet of Branthwaite, and is ideally located between the coast and the Lake District.

We have three properties available, all unique in what they offer.

Near Edge Hut - set in its own corner across the fields, the Shepherd's Hut offers 360o views of the surrounding countryside and nearby fells. The hut is an experience not to be missed. Sunrises, sunsets, and brilliant stars (weather cannot be guaranteed!) it gives a truly outdoorsy feel, whilst being comfortable and quaint. Full sized comfy double bed, with soft, warm bedding, wood burner for cosy nights in. Fully equipped for camp style cooking, facilities just a 2 minute walk across the fields, the hut is a favourite with our guests and their pooches, with many returning for more stays. Quiet and peaceful, the perfect get away.

Currently Unavailable - Near Edge Cottage is a two bedroomed, self catering, self contained cottage at the centre of the farm. It can comfortably accommodate 4 people, and there is an option to increase this to 6 by using the sofa and chair bed in the living room. Fully equipped kitchen, lovely walk in shower, large garden and patio area, all of this has resulted in many happy guests.

Currently Unavailable - Near Edge Pod - our small and cute little pod is well equipped, warm and cosy, and comfortable. To be viewed more as a wooden tent, but with the luxuries of electric sockets, kettle, toaster, single hob, and little electric fire, small double bed (4ft) and bedding provided. Set in a lovely little area near the cottage, but feels very private when there. The pod is our latest addition and has already had many guests who have thoroughly enjoyed it. Facilities just around the corner.

Stayed in the shepherds hut on more than one occasion with my two dogs. The hut is well equipped, lovely wood burning stove, stunning views and great hosts! What more can you ask for?!
