High House Farm Cottages



Where it all began…

The Byre is the first cottage at High House Farm.

Still with its original barn features, this characterful cottage is full of soul and ideal for a cosy getaway for two in the Lakes.

Guestbook Reviews:

A lovely relaxing break for our first time in the Lake District. We ve enjoyed great food and amazing walks. Highly recommend visiting the Aira Force waterfalls and eating at Granny Dowerberkins in Pooley Bridge. The cottage so cosy and weve loved the attention from the black and white cat and Timmy the pony! Thank you for a lovely stay. The fudge was so yummy. Im sure we will be back x

Autumn 2023

The most gorgeous peaceful farm in a stunning and easily accessible location for quick access to anywhere in the Lakes! Winding down here on an evening has been wonderful, but nothing in comparison to waking up to the birds at the feeder every morning – including a lovely little nuthatch! Thank you so much to Lesley, family and animals who have all been lovely,friendly and super helpful.

A Wonderfully welcoming stay and we hope to come back sometime soon!
