From the owner

In the heart of the Eden Valley between the villages of Melmerby and Gamblesby, Todd Hills Hall Farm is a walkers’ luxury base, a retreat for writers and artists in need of calm inspiration, or a welcoming celebratory space for family and friends get-togethers near the Lake District. There’ll be no arguments over who gets the room with a view – they all have them. The space is versatile, comforting and impeccably finished. Throughout are oak ledged and braced doors and oak flooring warmed by a ground source heat pump. The large breakfasting kitchen is equipped with Aga, gas hob, electric oven and a fridge freezer with a wine chiller. You’ll find it’s a meeting space too with the large handmade oak table in the kitchen or the dining room table converted for billiards as magnets for impromptu gatherings. The light airy day room has stunning views west to the Lake District fells and east to the Pennines, and if the Cumbrian mists kick in, you can settle in around its double-sided woodburning stove.
