Safety, Key Code and Check In/Out

Please read the safety notice on arrival so you know what to do in an emergency and you have made a plan of how best to evacuate your party from the property, in the event of a fire. There are new Fire Safety Regulations, as of October 2023. As a result of these Regulations, please do not use candles or charge your electric vehicle at the property. To do so may also invalidate the property’s insurance. Many thanks.

There are EV chargers at Rheged petrol station and Booths supermarket in Penrith,

There are steps up to the sitting room and a step down to the downstairs bedroom, so please be careful, especially anyone with mobility issues.

You can use that email if you need to get in touch with me about anything.



There is a note in the hall about recycling and bins.

Also could I ask that you strip the beds you’ve used before departure.

Please remember to clean up after your four-legged friends and not let them on the beds or sofas

FUSE BOX is in the attic space above the small downstairs sitting room, just off the back door entrance. STOP-TAP is under the kitchen sink.

Many thanks for your help.



If you have brought a four legged friend along you might like to walk your dog in the fields in front of Highgate. Please keep your dog on a lead if there are sheep about.

You can walk to Dacre and the Horse and Farrier. Have a look at the map on the wall in the dining room or the map in the welcome card and follow the footpath to Dacre. You’ll probably need wellies!

You can also walk your dog up to the reservoir building along the track down the side of the A66. You can let your dog off the lead on that section.

Septic tank
