If you are looking to come on holiday with your dog and have some training lessons with Derek and access to sheep whilst in a great setting...then look no further!
We have a lovely 18th century farm cottage where you can stay on a self catering basis. Stonehouse is a characterful and homely cottage set in 10 acres of peaceful farm land. It is located 2 miles from the city of Carlisle and only a short distance from the beach! It is also close to the border of the beautiful Lake District National Park.
There is a spacious garden and several fields at Stonehouse where you can excercise the dogs and relax. The training is done at Raise Lodge which is a 15 minute drive from Stonehouse. We have Kennels for the dogs or they can stay in your car as there is a secure parking area.
Stonehouse has 3 bedrooms, 2 Double rooms, and a room with 2 double beds. They are clean, comfy and homely so you can feel comfortable and relaxed during your stay. Lee ( Derek's son) and Shelley will be on site most of the time and are great hosts so if you need anything at all during your stay they are there to help!
There is a Kitchen/living area with all the mod cons you will need.
Electric cooker/Grill/Kettle/Toaster/Cutlery/ Fridge/Television/ Centeral heating /WiFi is available too.
It is £35 per person per night.
You will need to provide: Your own food - Lee has a Smokery at Stonehouse, he rears his own free range pigs so if you want Bacon/Sausages/ Black pudding you can buy them from him...trust us..it is worth it! YUM.
