High House Farm is situated in Watermillock, 1 mile above Ullswater, an idyllic situation surrounded by open fields and with lovely views from the grounds. No longer a working farm, the owner has converted some of the traditional stone buildings into five superb quality self catering cottages. Each cottage is private, not overlooking each other and all provide ground floor accommodation, oozing quality and character, with original features in the structure, beautiful furnishings and excellent en-suite facilities. They are perfect for a romantic break or an activity holiday, with lockable storage for canoes, bikes, windsurfs etc and livery for horses (for an additional fee). Situated in 10 acres of grounds and only 1 mile from the lake, with walks from the doorstep, including Aira Force where you can enjoy stunning views to Ullswater along the way. There is a shop at a neighbouring camp site, a pub within 1 mile and more amenities in Pooley Bridge, 3 miles. Only a 10-minute drive from the M6 makes High House Farm accessible for short breaks as well as full week holidays. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
The Byre can be booked together with Stable Yard (CC118216), The Bothy (CC118217), The Hoggest (CC118233) and Heft (UK1320) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    The only downside was that the nearest pub was not safely accessed by foot - it was along a busy main road with no pavements. We like to stroll to the pub and back occasionally (especially on holiday ) but could nt here

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comment.The Lake road can become quite busy particularly in the summer and during bank holidays. There is an alternative route along the back roads from the cottage which is a similar distance and much quieter. Although it also doesn’t have pavements, country roads in the Lake District generally don’t.

    The cottage was clean and comfortable and I would not hesitate to recommend this place to friends and look forward to staying here again.
