Highgate was built in 1770 by Andrew “the Counsellor” Hudleston. It was sizable and quite grand for a farmhouse in the 18th century and makes for a very spacious house, fully modernised and lovingly restored in 2018. The large house stands on the edge of a small working farm with transport links close by, combining Cumbrian life with easy access to Penrith and Keswick.
The interior is neutral and contemporary with period features throughout and a stone grey colour palette to reflect the native Lake District Herdwick Sheep. The largest of our self-catering cottages, Highgate is designed to accommodate big families and group get-togethers.
With space to sleep ten people and two dogs, the farmhouse has five bedrooms (one of which is ground floor with a shower room), an open-plan kitchen, dining room, a large family room with TV, separate sitting with log burner, a boot room, utility area and a large garden.

Home Farm House was built in 1849 by Andrew Fleming Hudleston as the gatehouse to the Estate and was part of a working farm. Restored and refurbished in 2017, the house sits in its own grounds with plenty of space to sit and take in the wonderful views of Little Mell Fell and beyond. Walk into Hutton and over the little stone bridge and you’ll find some footpaths and bridleways.
Originally built as two cottages, the 19th-century Lacet Cottage has been lovingly restored and refurbished to create spacious, open-plan, living spaces whilst retaining the abiding character of the Lakeland vernacular. The tranquil spot is just minutes from Ullswater by car and has a whole host of walks right from the front door.
Four contemporary cabins, immersed in nature. Where the outdoors meets luxury. Sleeps: 2
