Diana was a fabulous host, very welcoming and helpful. The hot tub was to die for especially with a glass of fizz on the go! Local pubs both did great food, the cottage was spacious and had everything we needed. The views are INCREDIBLE and well worth watching the sunset - even better from the tub. Will definitely be back! Thankyou
Amazing host and a very comfortable stay. Location and view feom thw property was much better than expected. Hot tubs are a great addition. Had lot of fun
We spent a few days here relaxing and especially enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and enjoying the beautiful views. Would recommend if you want to spend a few days away from it all but also happy to drive about and enjoy the wonders of this gorgeous corner of the country
I booked this property mainly because of the location and view, but when we arrived we could not believe just how spectaculat the 360 degree view was, no photograph could do it justice, it has to be seen, to be believed! The location feels remote, the peace and quiet are idyllic, and yet only a short drive from towns, lakes, and waterfalls! The property is typical country farmhouse, very cosy and comfortable, especially the bed!! Dianne the owner lives on site, and is so warm, welcoming and extremely helpful, nothing is too much trouble.
I have been to many different countries, and have never been interested in going to the same place twice, but now I have found this property, I will definetly be returning asap, the lure of spending yet more nights in the hot tub, watching the sun go down, in what feels like the middle of nowhere, with a glass of wine or two, hearing nothing but the sound of sheep cows owls etc, is my idea of heaven
Thank you Dianne, for a wonderful holiday, see you soon

The Lorton Valley is stunningly beautiful and you have full advantage to take it in from High Swinside. By day the views from the gardens can be enjoyed from the lawn or ample seating positioned around the gardens - benches, dining tables and chairs and also hammocks. By evening you can watch the sun set over the hills and Solway firth from the fantastic wood-fired hot tub.
The Farmhouse is very well equipped for a family or larger group; facilities for dining, relaxing and sleeping are versatile and of a good standard. We were a 3-generation family group of 8 all staying together in The Farmhouse property, ages 2-73 and we enjoyed it immensely. While being in quite a secluded spot, we enjoyed the peace and quiet of the valley though were able to easily access other more lively locations, such as Maryport, Whinfell, Keswick and Allonby beach.
The icing on the cake was our host, Diana. She delivers faultless hospitality, enthusiasm and a real passion the Lake District. In such a short time on the High Swinside site she has accomplished a great standard of accommodation, matched with real care for our enjoyment. Nothing was too much trouble and we were thrilled to have met her.
