Our resident beasties...and your visiting ones

We have a dog, who spends his days around the yard and his nights in kennel; a cat; and one or two ponies who live in the fields by day and in the stables by night. They are pets. All of them are friendly and we are happy to welcome your own well behaved pets who come here with you and your family.

Please remember though that Daw Bank, like the rest of Greenholme, is working farmland, not an urban park, a petting zoo or a themed play area. You are welcome to enjoy our fields if you also accept that the farm livestock take priority. There are sheep in our fields and cattle in our neighbours' fields, and sheep and cattle are not pets. Please keep your dog leashed when going for walks, especially where there are sheep or horses. (If you go among cattle anywhere, be prepared to let the dog go if they become inquisitive or aggressive.)

In reply to some queries we have had:  There is no enclosed space outside Daw Bank Cottage where you can leave dogs or toddlers unsupervised. There are no dog parks nearby to let a dog run free.

Please don't feed any of the animals here unless you're with one of us.

Our landline broadband was very slow (usually under 2mbps) so we cancelled it. It caused too much frustration.

However, your SMARTPHONE should get good mobile internet 4G reception indoors from Vodafone, O2-UK, EE and Three. Check here for up to date information and for any other providers we haven't detected: Mobile coverage and https://www.signalchecker.co.uk/ - use the postcode CA10 3TA and the address, Daw Bank Cottage.

Westmorland Services (1 mile up the hill, see Local Attractions) has free wifi for customers.
