High House is a very pretty, well equipped cottage.. We enjoyed our stay, the summer house is a lovely place for a relaxing glass of wine and listen to the many birds. The welcome pack of wine and cake was much appreciated. However, care is needed when exiting the property as it's situated on busy rd, the noise of farm traffic was quite loud at times.

What a beautiful place.. Situated in a central location for the South Lakes. Very comfortable and equipped with everything you would need. Pub 5 minutes and 10 minutes from Cartmel. Upstairs room not suitable for elderly, however perfect for young people and kids. Lovely Garden at the rear We had a fantastic time.

Stayed for 2 nights with our friend who invited us. A little tricky to find initially but fortunately pulled up across the rd and 2 ladies pointed us in the direction. Saw the High House sign but coming from our direction didnt see it as it was on the side by the steps. Very homely/everything you needed. Loved the attic bedroom. Slept well in the King Size bed with stunning views of the hamlet. Wifi available from top floor. Quiet relaxing retreat.

First attempt at taking the dog away with us so were a little apprehensive if she would be ok somewhere strange and new.. No need go worry at all, she settled straight away! Lovely cottage with dog bowls and towels provided. Nice and quiet a little out of the way but also only 10/15 mins drive away from windermere. Lovely welcoming local pub.

High house cottage was by far one of the best cottages we have ever stopped in.. When we arrived the owner had left us a welcome pack of the following, cakes,flowers,wine and treats for the dogs,all most appreciated. All the rooms were nicely decorated and clean. Would definitely come back and would recommend this cottage.

The cottage had all the amenities anyone could wish for and was in a great location for seeing the area.. The contact with the owner was good and they left special touches such as wine and items for the dog. We really enjoyed the accommodation and the break.

Perfect home from home.. This cottage is homely comfortable and well equipped. The beds are very comfortable. Best of all is the views from the garden. I even saw a hot air balloon go over early one morning.....great spot to have a quiet cuppa in the mornings. Very dog friendly cottage , owner thought of everything even leaving us a ball for Ted to play with and the welcome back was.....,well,...very welcome

Our second stay at High House and once again a great break.. The cottage has everything you need and is in a lovely village with a good pub and good road connections to get around the district. I stayed with my 2 sons and dog to do some walking as this cottage makes a great base. Stuart from Kent

Absolutely amazing property.. From the moment we arrived we could relax. Great welcome pack of cakes and wine. Perfect to enjoy on a warm evening in the garden. Doggy friendly also so our pooch settled very quickly. We will definitely be staying again and recommend to anyone who loves the countryside and a peaceful holiday.

A perfect holiday.. The cottage was immaculate and the owner made sure everything you needed was available, well equipped. Enclosed garden, perfect for dogs. Welcome pack a lovely touch and instructions on how to use appliances easy to follow. I would certainly recommend this cottage because it is situated in a tranquil area with easy access to other areas for days out. Thank you for making my break to the lakes comfortable.

Lovely homely cottage described accurately online.. Comfortable clean rooms, small bathroom and not so great if you’re tall however it was perfectly adequate for us. Dogs were welcomed and supplies on arrival were a lovely touch both for us and our four legged friends. Beautiful garden, just a shame we had poor weather as I’m sure it’s a real feature in the warmer, drier months. Overall a lovely cottage with a nice local pub with excellent food. Just one watch out there are some very fast moving vehicles that travel up/down the road as you step out of the cottage!

Really lovely cottage.. We stayed during the cold snap, and although it was freezing outside the cottage was warm and cosy and the log burner was super. Cottage was charmingly furnished, and we especially appreciated the cakes, wine and roses left by the owner on our arrival. Location was spot on - village pub a short walk away and the food was great, beer good too! So much to do just a short drive away. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

The above boxes for 'your holiday cottage' are blank so I wasn't sure if I clicked on the correct box.. All I can put is that I would have ticked on excellent for all of them. This was the first time that we have spent xmas away from home but from this visit, it won't be the last. We both loved this cottage and the little extra that Mrs Bowen left us were heart warming. Lovely stay, lovely area, lovely cottage. Well worth going back to again. Many thanks

A superb cosy cottage with a real fire, enclosed garden and even a summer house. It is in a very convenient location with a good local pub and within an hour of most of the Lake Districts main attractions.

A beautiful place and a lovely cottage. The owner was lovely and helpful. Had a wonderful stay, it was a home from home and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Cartmel is a stunning little village and the walks around are fantastic.

A lovely cottage with beautiful views from the garden. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and there was everything you need and more for cooking your own meals and relaxing inside on the bad weather days. There were lots of walks and things to do near to the cottage and a very friendly village. Everything was exactly as described and was very well presented.
