What our guests say:

“What a fantastic cottage. So cosy and comfortable and in a gloriously peaceful and beautiful setting! Pheasants, deer and red squirrels…. and that was day one!! We will be back!”

- Mark, Michelle, Grace, Harry and Esme the Spaniel

“ Absoutely loved our stay. We truly felt at home, the property is so cosy, warming and it is clear to see a lot of love, hard-work and effort has been put into the renovation of the cottage. We will definitely be staying here again”

- Felicity H.

“We’ve had a wonderful holiday here. It’s very cosy and well-equipped – spotted the red squirrel and plenty of birds. Great location for northern Lakes and especially Ullswater. Looking forward to booking again for next year”

- Mike, Cathie, Sophie and Matt

Highgate was built in 1870 by Andrew “the Counsellor” Hudleston. It was quite a large and grand size for a farmhouse in the 19th century and makes for a very spacious house, now fully modernised. The large house stands on the edge of a small working farm so is perfect to feel fully absorbed into Cumbrian life.

There is a large family kitchen and dining room perfect for big friends and family get togethers. If you prefer to eat al fresco, there is a courtyard to the rear of the property with plenty of space to BBQ and dine.

The house is fully equipped for all ages with a large family room come playroom; not just for children, there is a smart TV and DVD player plus games and books if you prefer. The large sitting room can accommodate all the guests so everyone can relax in front of the log burning stove after a full day exploring the Lakes. There are five bedrooms including one on the ground floor. Each bedroom has either a shower or a bathroom, four of which are ensuite.
