Loved everything about this B&B. Great location, good base for exploring the lakes and also not too far from Hawkshead and Ambleside. Really nice steady walk to Hawkshead (about 30-35 mins) if you wanted to go out and have a drink with your evening meal. Ambleside is about 10 mins away in the car with some really nice places to...

We had a very friendly welcome from Sheila who came out to greet us as we arrived. Then it was into the large and cosy lounge where you are free to make yourself at home in front of a woodburning stove, even have a tabby cat to keep you company. The bedrooms are individually designed, in stunning colours and beautiful...

We stayed in February and had a great stay at High Wray Farm. It's a great place to come back to after a long walk in the rain. Cosy fire, welcoming owners (and cat) and home made cake. The breakfasts were very good (recommend the full english). Couldn't have asked for better!

We have been coming here for years - it's a real home from home! Shelia and Chris make you feel very welcome every visit, even leaving a pint of milk and a cake for your arrival! The cottage has two bedrooms, one twin room and one master, both with ensuite bathrooms (with underfloor heating). The master bedroom is great for...

Another beautiful, relaxing, memorable stay with Sheila at Highwray Farm. Despite it being 6 years since we last stayed there the farmhouse as usual is full of character and spotlessly clean, making it both a privilege and a delight to have yet another opportunity to stay there. Sheila is an exceptional host and always goes above and beyond to make...

Stable Cottage is very warm and cosy and beautifully finished and appointed. The level access and wheel-in shower were ideal for me as a wheelchair user. The views are to die for no matter what the weather!

We have just returned from two nights stay with our charming host Sheila. The farmhouse, not far from Hawkshead and Ambleside is a charming and restful place to unwind with wonderful views. Breakfast was excellent, the sitting room with wood burner was warm and comfortable and our bedroom nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. we look forward to staying there again!
