A large 18th century farmhouse with outstanding views, and lots of original features and character. Hillside location overlooking the Vale of Lorton - walk out the back onto the open fells, or down a footpath to the village shop & pub in 20-30 mins. Wonderful varied walking near - from beautiful lake shore paths right through to the majestic Grasmoor & Buttermere fells. Excellent mountain biking trails in Whinlatter 3 miles ride away (secure bike store available). And a hot tub with a view that you can reserve to enjoy at the end of the day!
(There is a hot tub charge of £10 a night to cover the cost of heating the water).
High Swinside Farmhouse is one of three adjacent cottages at High Swinside. It has a well-equipped kitchen/diningroom, a comfy lounge with sofas, tv/dvd, and an open fire. There are 4 bedrooms sleeping 9 in 7-9 beds (depending on how you want them made up: 2 twins, 1 ensuite double/twin, 1 family room with double & single or can be 3 singles). One of the bedrooms and the shower room are on the ground floor. The family bathroom is upstairs, and the double bedroom has an ensuite shower room. See photos for more details. (An adjacent cottage can be booked - linked to the Farmhouse by lockable connecting door if you need to sleep 2 more).
The 3 High Swinside cottages share the lovely garden with superb views, quiet spaces, benches, picnic table, hammock, and wood-fired hot tub! Free range hens supply delicious eggs. Well-behaved dogs are welcome - and there is a small enclosed wooded area where dogs can run off their leads in safety.
