The traditional farm house is set within the Rowley Estates farmland.

Located in: Melmerby
The rolling landscape and bubbling brooks of the Eden Valley create one of the most beautiful landscapes in Northern England, and a stay at Todd Hills Hall Farmhouse puts you right at the heart of this magical region. The traditional farm house is set within the Rowley Estates farmland, so there are fields and superb views on every side. There are walks right from the front door, and views from this comfortable and superbly appointed sandstone farmhouse stretch in all directions.

The owners have furnished the farm house to an extremely high standard, with six en-suite bedrooms, two wood burning stoves and an Aga as well as a side-by-side fridge in the kitchen. The dining room table even converts to a half size snooker table, so you can all enjoy an evening or two polishing up your potting skills. The chances are though you’ll end up in the kitchen, with the cosy Aga, granite topped island and wood burning stove as the perfect backdrop to sit and chat.

The closest village is Melmerby, which has a welcoming pub, a village shop and a tea room. There’s even an indoor pool in the village, so you don’t need to go far for your exercise. Further beyond Melmerby is the beautiful and sinuous Ullswater Lake with its historic steamer boats, glorious walks and of course, swathes of the daffodils that inspired the poet William Wordsworth. This is an outdoor lover’s paradise, and there’s plenty of opportunity to enjoy everything from sailing to pony trekking during your stay.

Adjoining Todd Hills Hall Farmhouse is The Stables at Todd Hills (sleeping 6 guests) and Muriel's Retreat (sleeping 2 guests). These properties will be available to book through Rural Retreats in 2019.

Attractions and nearby amenities
Long Meg is a famous local inhabitant you should meet while you’re here. She’s twelve feet tall and a dark grey colour. Yes, she’s a stone, standing proud with another 69 of her ‘daughters’ in a stone circle just outside Little Salkeld. Apparently, it’s impossible to count the same number of stones twice. See if you can.
The evocative and dramatic ruins of Lowther Castle are a unique day out. The castle originally had one room for every day of the year, but in 1957, its interiors were brought crashing down, leaving an intriguing and eerie skeleton. The gardens are well worth exploring, and there’s an excellent adventure playground here too.
The Cumbrian writer Hunter Davies said that Ullswater was more like a river than a lake, stretching for miles along the eastern edge of the Lake District. See if you agree with him by taking a Steamer cruise from one end to the other. You can embark at Pooley Bridge at the top of the lake.
You’re in border country here in the Eden Valley, and Brougham Castle is evidence of the disputes and battles that have taken place here. This picturesque ruin still has plenty of long corridors and spiral staircases to explore, with splendid views from the battlements.
Just a couple of miles away from Brougham is the border town of Penrith, where you can visit another ruined castle as well as potter about the local shops. If you’re lucky enough to be here at the right time, one truly unique event is Penrith Goes Orange, when the whole town er… goes orange. You have to be there really.
Stretching 73 miles, Hadrian’s Wall marked the northern frontier of the Roman empire. Now, 2,000 years later, it’s still a fascinating day out. You can explore ruined forts, learn about Roman life in the museums or simply stroll along the path next to the wall. One of the best places to see the remains of the wall is Birdoswald, to the north of Todd Hills Hall.
