“One of the best views from a holiday let we've had”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A well proportioned holiday let in a fantastic location.

We were greeted with a warm welcome, bottle of wine, flowers and milk to a cosy cottages. Big enough for 4 adults (and a baby) but would may be suit a couple with two children better. Good facilities. Collecting your eggs in the morning was a really nice touch as was the outdoor space - with a garden, bbq and childrens play area.

We have stayed at many holiday cottages over the years and this cottage is a very good example of how to get a holiday cottage right. Cosy but not over fussy. The owners where very friendly but not intrusive and gave a very warm welcome and had a lovely balance of professional and friendliness. The wifi was good enough to check emails and general browsing but a little slow - which is to be expected in such a remote location - besides you don't go to one of the most beautiful parts of the world to go onto the internet at every second.

We really didnt have any complaints, with ample facilities and wonderful walks from the door we saw no reason or need to drive for hours to get anywhere else.

You will need to come by car or be relatively fit. My parents are fit old people and managed to walk a lot but found the hills up to the house a challenge. The closest pub/cafe is about 1 mile in Little town but I think it closes at 5pm (in the summer) and buttermere offers the closest choice of pubs, food, cafes etc... There are other pubs a little closer in portinscale, grange etc...

The closest "well known hill" is Cats bells and is easily walkable out of the front door.

Thanks for a lovely holiday and memories....would come again if I wanted to return to the area. We do tend to try different areas for each holiday though

“A warm and cosy New Year”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

I great cottage in a great location. High Snab was clean, warm and very cosy (storage heaters and wood burner in living room). Also very elegantly decorated for Christmas. Fresh eggs for collection each morning. Good parking. WIFI access good. Phone reception limited to front of cottage. Lots of walks straight from the door. Non-intrusive hosts.

“Beautiful location, awesome cottage and helpful and accomodating owners”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The cottage is located next to the working farm with a beautiful back drop of the lake district mountain ranges. On arrival you instantly feel welcomed with fresh flowers and milk already in the fridge, along with a cheerful hello from the owners. The cottage is clean, full of character, along with all what you could possibly need. We travelled with our 4 year old son, and he loved it, especially the collecting of the fresh eggs each morning from the farm chickens. There is a garden to the rear for own use with swings and slide for the little one, as well as a barbeque area for the grown ups.
Would highly recommend this cottage, a great experience.

“Probably the most beautiful holiday cottage in the Lake District”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We have holidayed in the Lake District for many years and this is probably the most beautiful holiday cottage we have stayed in. The location was perfect for us, far enough away from it all for absolute peace and quiet, yet only 10 to 15 minute drive into Keswick. The cottage was beautifully presented, well equipped and absolutely spotlessly clean (you would never know that the cottage allows one dog to stay in the kitchen area). The views from the cottage were amazing from every room, you can lie in bed with a cup of tea in the morning looking out to Catbells and the start of the Newlands Horseshoe. The walks from the door are some of the best in the Lake District, you do not need to get in the car. If you have small children the garden is charming and the most ideal garden to bbq in. You can also go and collect the eggs from the chickens which the children will love (and the mums!). The hosts, Caroline and Tom, are very helpful but not intrusive and the welcome gifts of fresh fruit, and flowers are a lovely touch. Highly recommended. Already booked for a further two holidays!!!!

“Outstanding Accommodation in an Outstanding Location”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A great little cottage in an outstanding location. We loved everything about this place, immaculate accommodation set in the beautiful New lands valley. A kitchen/dinner with everything you might need and a cosy living room with WiFi and Sky tv to keep the kids happy when the weather stops them from playing in the garden.
If you are looking for a base for a walking holiday or just a beautiful relaxing break away from it all High Snab cottage is a must. As a recommendation we booked for next year before we left!
