Checking for availability


Four lovely self catering cottages within the grounds of the owners' 17th century house lying high in the Lakeland hills above the northern end of Ullswater. Approached along a private lane winding upwards through fields of grazing sheep, the cottages overlook the surrounding woods and fields, enjoy direct access onto the fells and afford a degree of peace and tranquillity which is rarely found. Although secluded High Winder is readily accessible and is conveniently situated for visiting much of the Lake District as well as the beautiful Lowther and Eden valleys, in addition to the Scottish Borders and Hadrian's Wall to the north.

The surroundings provide a wealth of wildlife with several resident red squirrels using feeders at the cottages, which are considered by many visitors to be the highlight of their holiday.
