High Gateside

The Wilsons (another Wilson family!) have been the custodians of this 160 acre dairy farm, which runs along Croftside down towards the centre of Cartmel, for over 80 years.

Burns Farm

This 130 acre farm is home to sheep and cattle, farmed by Charlie Long and Boo Knipe. In the past 4 years, the Estate, Charlie and Boo have invested heavily in this farm, erecting new fencing, carrying out much needed work to drainage and tackling the rushes on the Farm. In addition, significant improvements have been made to the infrastructure. The Farm continues to be a work in progress, but in partnership with Charlie and Boo we are confident it will be an excellent example of a working Cumbrian Farm.

Burns Farm is also the home of Burns Farm Lodge and Caravan Site and there are ongoing plans to significantly develop the site in the future, whilst being sympathetic to the surrounding landscape.

Wall Nook

A second sheep and beef farm is occupied by Steve Thompson, who has farmed the land for nearly 20 years. The 80 acres is also home to a large agricultural building, originally built by George Philip Wilson, which is now occupied by Grange Drama Society and was, until recently, also occupied by canoe builders.

Tewitt Moss

Tewitt Moss is tenanted by Mike and Amy Bigland, they live in Allithwaite the next village along from Cartmel. Mike is self-employed, owning his own pest control company and Amy is a Midwife at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay. They breed and show pedigree Zwartbles sheep and pedigree Dorper sheep. They choose these breeds as Zwartbles are renowned for being friendly and good mothers and the Dorpers are new to this country and have a unique look. They own the only pedigree flock in Cartmel Cumbria. Zwartbles originate from Holland and originally were a milk sheep. One of their Zwartbles won breed champion at Cartmel agricultural show 2019 and they will be taking both breeds to Cartmel agricultural show in 2022. The Dorpers are a new enterprise and originate from South Africa, they will be shown for the first time this year at Cartmel Agricultural show as well as all the other agricultural shows including the Great Yorkshire Show. One of their Dorpers won Breed champion at Westmorland County show 2021 too. Mainly they breed their sheep for showing and selling at pedigree sales but they do also sell stock privately and some stock for meat too as both breeds are a very lean meat.
