Introducing ourselves and our village…

Diana is happy to talk ‘food’ and may be persuaded to share one or two of her cooking secrets. Remember to ask about her experience of being a finalist on Britain’s Best Dish.

Vic used to work for the Lake District National Park and is currently involved with ‘Bay Tourism’, promoting the beautiful Morcambe Bay area as a tourist destination. He knows this area very well and is always at hand with suggestions for days out and an itinerary to avoid the crowds. He is also your ‘weather man’, with the latest reports for hill-top walkers and Lakes ramblers. Maybe you simply need to know how many bridges to count along the canal before reaching the village pub.

Across the road from the pub is the village church. It’s always worth pausing at the gates and wrapping your hand around the Pineapple Finial. Pineapples are a sign of hospitality, letting you know you are welcome in this place.

Now we’ve said “Hello”, here’s a little more…

Within 5 minutes of leaving the M6 at Junction 36 you will find the quiet village of Holme, tucked in beside the Lancaster Canal. The view of Farleton Fell, from the motorway, is the landmark that let’s you know you’re almost here.


Alfred Wainwright, in his book Westmorland Heritage, refers to Holme as ‘a wayside village on the old north road’. It is there on North Road that you will find Tythebarn House.


Originally a Westmorland stone barn, this charming B&B has a real cottage atmosphere. With only one guest room, you are sure to be well looked after. Guests say “Vic and Diana welcome you as a guest, and you leave as a friend.”


Guests comment on Diana’s attention to detail – the welcoming cup of tea with home-made scones and the comfort of your guest room, made-up to your requirements as a single, twin or super-king. There are fluffy bath robes to curl up in too.


There’s a choice when it comes to Breakfast

On a warm summer evening our courtyard garden is the perfect place to sit and relax in our amazing Garden Pod. Alternatively, the local pub is only a fifteen minute walk away, along the tranquil Lancaster canal.


A short break for a quiet retreat and a respite from everyday life will leave you rested and relaxed. For a longer stay The Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Arnside & Silverdale AONB and wildlife haven of the Morecambe Bay area are all within easy reach.


Birders love to visit Leighton Moss and Morecambe Bay. Walkers are keen to explore the Limestone Link, Westmorland way and Wainwright’s Way and amblers are surprised to discover the Lancaster Canal, steps from our door.

Last but not least, cyclists welcome a stop off halfway to John O’Groates, for a breather and to top up on porridge.

“We love meeting new people and introducing our guests to the warm hospitality of the people, great food and fabulous scenery in our beautiful corner of Cumbria and look forward to meeting our readers and sharing our home and surroundings.”

We look forward to meeting you and sharing our home and surroundings.
