Accommodation for Key Workers

Matson Ground Offers Accommodations to Key Workers

At Matson Ground, we want to do our bit to help tackle Coronavirus, so we have recently answered Cumbria Tourism’s plea to provide cottages for key frontline workers, such as those working for the NHS.

Matson Ground Lodge, Helm Mint, Helm Kent, Helm Eden and Helm Lune, all of which are situated a stone’s throw from Windermere, have been made available for key workers.

We felt that with our holiday cottages closed to visitors during this difficult time, rather than seeing them sit empty and unloved, we wanted to share them with the people who are keeping this country on its feet.

Obviously, we are all hoping that this crisis shows signs of improving at the earliest possible date but, in the meantime, we wanted to say a huge thank you from everybody at the Matson Ground Estate Company.

We have been in touch with Morecambe Bay Hospital Trust, providing them with details of the accommodation. However, we are keen to spread the word that we have these properties available, so if you know of any key workers who may require accommodation, please do ask them to contact us.

Elm How and Cruck Barn heating improvements

We have recently installed a water source heat pump, giving much improved central heating and hot water to both the Elm How and Cruck Barn houses.  The pumps are installed in a new building adjacent to Cruck Barn, and use water from the river nearby.
