Cragg House Farm is a traditional Lakeland Fell farm which runs a flock of approximately 350 Herdwick, 140 Swaledale and 100 Cheviot sheep.
The farm itself lies in the relatively untouched village of Buttermere combining many interesting points of archaeology, geography and wildlife – not to mention stunning views.
The farm tenants, John and Vicki Temple, have a keen interest in nature and the environment which is reflected in the business. They are also keen to promote Fair Trade, supplying a welcome pack of Fair Trade goods in the Holiday Cottage.
The farmhouse is a traditional property dating from the 17th and 18th century. It is a grade II listed building and therefore retains many of its original features.
