Description

High House Farm is situated in Watermillock, one mile above Ullswater, an idyllic situation surrounded by open fields and with lovely views from the grounds. No longer a working farm, the owner has converted some of the traditional stone buildings into four superb quality self catering cottages. Each cottage is private, not overlooking each other and all provide ground floor accommodation, oozing quality and character, with original features in the structure, beautiful furnishings and excellent en suite facilities. They are perfect for a romantic break or an activity holiday, with secure storage for canoes, bikes, windsurfs etc and livery for horses (for additional fee). Situated in 10 acres of grounds and only one mile from the lake, with walks from the door step, including Aira Force where you can enjoy stunning views to Ullswater along the way. There is a shop at a neighbouring camp site, a pub within one mile and more amenities in Pooley Bridge, three miles. Only a 10 minute drive from the M6 makes High House Farm accessible for short breaks as well as full week holidays.

About the local area

Ullswater is the Lake District's second largest lake at nine miles long. Located in the eastern side of Cumbria, it bends and twists its way through dramatic mountain scenery on one side and a gently curving shoreline of green fields and woodland on the other.

Boating centres and marinas nestle unobtrusively on the lake edge, perfect for the water sports enthusiasts, or visitors can relax and enjoy the scenery from one of the steamers that have sailed the lake since 1855.

Many of the Lake District's many walks have their starting point from around Ullswater, including the renowned trek to Helvellyn's summit via Striding Edge. Or for the less energetic there are many low-level walks through beautiful countryside.

Of note is Glenridding which sits on the south western shore and is surrounded by the fells with wonderful scenic views. Pooley Bridge on the northern shore, with its 16th Century Bridge, Lakeland greystone houses and quaint teashops and Patterdale just to the south of Ullswater, cradled by mountains.
