About our venues:

Hare Hill is a small traditional Lakeland hill farm which can be traced back to the early 18th Century. Although the house has earlier origins, it was rebuilt in 1907. The farmbuildings date from the late 19th Century, since when they have remained unchanged.

Hare Hill is currently run as a sheepholding for approximately 140 Swaledale ewes, and has 30 acres of wildflower meadows cut in the summer for hay, and supporting a large population of skylarks. In the Second World War Hare Hill was used as a training farm for the Womens’ Land Army.

In 2006, Julian and Vanda Lambton bought the farm and have since embarked on a series of environmental projects, supported by a Higher Level Stewardship Scheme, including woodland planting, creation of orchards and a pond, wall and hedgerow restoration. The land is managed with minimal intervention to promote biodiversity. A happy bi-product of these projects is that we have a new population of hares breeding successfully on the farm, some of which are regularly seen around the barns.

However, if you prefer to learn online at your own pace, we also have a Beginners Spinning Workshop online. Click here to see it
