Eskdale, Lake District, Cumbria, England
High Ground Cottage is a magical place. High on the fell, with breathtaking mountain views from every window, there are wonderful walks from the door (including one to a waterfall and one to a mountain lake) and only skylarks and sheep to listen to, far from traffic. Yet there are loads of great things to see and do nearby, from the little steam train that puffs its way to the coast to an owl sanctuary and the Cumbria Heavy Horses Centre. This is a less crowded part of the Lakes, but Lake District favourites like Beatrix Potter's Hilltop Farm are within easy reach. You're not far from beautiful sandy beaches either. The cottage itself is spacious, warm and stylish, with a big farmhouse kitchen at its heart and an open fire in one of two sitting rooms. Very well equipped, with Sky TV and wifi, the kids will be just as happy as you.... Read more

There are great food shops in nearby Broughton-in-Furness, a little post office and stores 3 miles away, and Tesco deliver to the cottage.

Very calm and large cottage in the middle of the Lake District with everything you need inside and amazing views around. We stayed there with 2 families and kids and everyone loved it.

A wonderful place to stay, slightly off the beaten track, but well worth it. Communication and booking with Candy couldn't have been better or easier. Everything in the house was great and the views are fantastic. Lovely walks all around, an ideal place to take...More
