Booking Again

If you would like to book this cottage or one of our other cottages you can book direct with us for a better price.

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 bin collection in the cottage.

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

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. You need to walk over to Brow Wood and walk along the dry stone wall until you get to a gate in the wall. Go though the gate in to the wood and then there’s a stile on your left. Go over the stile and drop down on to the footpath to Dacre.

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.


There are cloths, tea towels, soap and oven gloves.

3. Wood

You can buy wood from the Rheged petrol station on the A66 or from WCF in Penrith, next to Booths.

Septic tank

As we don’t have mains sewerage please can I ask you to not put sanitary products, cotton wool or nappies down the loo. Anything bulky will clog the septic tank and stop it working.


You can alter the heating by turning the room thermostats, on the radiators, up or down.
