2 bedroom 2 bathroom cottage on the edge of the Lake District
We began rearing cattle and sheep on the farm twenty five years ago, renovating the abandoned farm house and traditional stone built barns. Our prime motivation has always been our love of the landscape, stewardship over the natural enviroment and the respect & nurturing of the indigenous wildlife we are so proud to be surrounded by.
Why Katie chose Kendal
High Thorn Farm is a small family run enterprise, occupying an enviable position nestled between the beautiful Lake District National Park and the sweeping Howgills.

What a great cottage and surroundings, we had a really great stay and it’s a great location to explore the lakes. Will definitely return
A great place
This is a great little hideaway but not far from main town at all. If you just want to relax and sit by log burner with a few drinks then this is the place. Would recommend this place to anyone.
They say a picture says a thousand words
To say it was love at first sight is an understatement. We booked based on the pictures and the fact that we are 20 minutes away from Lake Windermere. I must say we have fallen head over heels in love with not only the cottage, but the Lake District in its entirety. Coming from just outside London, there is a certain disconnect from the true beauty of nature, but waking up looking out of the bedrooms/family room onto the rolling hills/mountains has been nothing short of spectacular. We will return to this beautifully appointed homie from home. Absolutely fantastic! Thank you Katie, the Walsh family
Wonderful cottage, beautiful views, fun to see all the animals, great owner. Loved it!
The cottage was clean, beds comfortable, kitchen very functional, and there was a nice collection of kitchen equipment. Loved the look of the cottage with the natural wood counters and trims, the pretty rural-themed art, and the pretty color-scheme. Very attractive and comfortable. One of my favorite things was the set of Royal Doulton Elegy china...perfect for enjoying a special meal, or a cup of hot tea.
Katie was very quick to respond, and had everything beautifully prepared for our arrival. Such a lovely person! Thank you, Katie, for all the special treats and the sweet vase of flowers for the dining table!
One reason we chose this location was because it was almost a straight shot from Manchester International. No time wasted winding into the more inward towns of the Lake District after a long international flight from America. We found it very convenient to branch out to all points in the Lake District, western Scotland, and all points east, as well. After visiting the busy tourist areas, it was peaceful to come back to the quiet farm cottage.
We had a great time at The Granary cottage! Such a beautiful area...awesome and inspiring!
Fantastic property set in amazing scenery, looking forward to planning a return visit.
Fantastic location and great property
The property had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable, lots of crockery and stunning views. Lovely wine and biscuits waiting when we arrived. Will definitely return. Thank you to Katie.
We are in a lovely rural quiet location, with rolling countryside and beautiful views all around, yet we are just a 5-10 minute drive into the busy market town of Kendal, with many amenities including supermarkets, restaurants and bars, shops, hospital etc. The Lake District town of Windermere is just a 20 minute drive.
