High Ground Cottage is a magical place. High on the fell, with breathtaking mountain views from every window, there are wonderful walks from the door (including one to a waterfall and one to a mountain lake) and only skylarks and sheep to listen to, far from traffic. Yet there are loads of great things to see and do nearby, from the little steam train that puffs its way to the coast to an owl sanctuary and the Cumbria Heavy Horses Centre. This is a less crowded part of the Lakes, but Lake District favourites like Beatrix Potter's Hilltop Farm are within easy reach. You're not far from beautiful sandy beaches either. The cottage itself is spacious, warm and stylish, with a big farmhouse kitchen at its heart and an open fire in one of two sitting rooms. Very well equipped, with Sky TV and wi...High Ground Cottage is a magical place.

Interaction with guests
You're completely private and the owners do not live on site. However we have a wonderful chap who lives a few miles away who looks after the cottage for us and who is always available to take your calls if you need help or information. There are great food shops in nearby Broughton-in-Furness, a little post office and stores 3 miles away, and Tesco deliver to the cottage.

A wonderful place to stay, slightly off the beaten track, but well worth it. Communication and booking with Candy couldn't have been better or easier. Everything in the house was great and the views are fantastic. Lovely walks all around, an ideal place to take...More

The location of this cottage is idyllic. Every room has magnificent views of the mountains, with just the chirping of bird song and the odd bleat of sheep, a complete contrast to stressful life in Surrey! The cottage itself is very well equipped and has...More
