We've been staying at High Houses for 9 years, sometimes 2 or 3 times a year. It is simply the best place in the Lake District. So unusual, so peaceful, so lovely. There is so much character, it is unbelivable.
The location is remote but if that's your thing, High Houses will be too. Stunning views towards Scotland, fantastic sunsets if you are lucky, birds singing, hens clucking, House Martins and Swallows darting around, open fires to warm your heart after a tough days on the Northern Fells.
Jill's cooking - delightful. She is a wonderful character, so warm and welcoming. We'd move in tomorrow if we could. Self catering is the preferred option now - Jill dropped off some wonderful dinners. And the eggs from the hens laid that morning are the tastiest ever!
High Houses is dog friendly and kids will love place. We certainly do.
We enjoy our pre-breakfast walks on the slopes of Binsey to check out the weather for the day - watch the rain in Borrowdale as we basked in sunshine. The walks locally are superb and you may not see another soul.
High Houses is good for the soul. Can't wait to go back soon.
