Situated at the heart of the Estate yet only a stone's throw from the bustling town of Bowness-on-Windermere, Helm Farm is accessed by private road at the top of a rural lane. There is ample parking in the carpark adjacent to the property. 

With numerous public footpaths leading straight from your door, this property is ideally situated for a welcome break in the Lake District. The unit has an L-shaped configuration with double bed sleeping area and two comfortable tub chairs. Cots and highchairs are available on request. A wall mounted TV with DVD player and CD player are positioned in this area. There is a dining table and two chairs next to a small kitchenette which has many of the conveniences of a full-sized kitchen including slimline dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave and electric cooker and hob. The modern bathroom has corner shower, basin and WC. There is a sheltered seating area outside with small table and chairs and a communal grass area. There is also a secluded orchard available for all Helm Farm guests. 

Helm Mint does not take pets. Matson Ground Holidays has two pet-friendly cottages - Elm How and Matson Ground Lodge.

Helm Farm also consists of three other self-catering properties: Helm Lune (sleeps five), Helm Eden (sleeps four) and Helm Kent (sleeps four).
