“Lovely B&B”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

We stayed at Highside for three nights over the last May bank holiday. We were greeted upon arrival and shown to our room (which was an upgrade to the superior room). Everything was extremely clean, well appointed and we enjoyed our stay immensely. Breakfasts were delicious, and kept us going well beyond lunchtime. The owners were very welcoming, helpful and chatty. We will definately be returning (hopefully next year!).

We had a lovely, comfortable stay at Highside Farm, the only downside was that we only stayed one night. Our Room was beautifully furnished, with fabulous views over The Lakes and breakfast was delicious. Would definitely stay again, highly recommended!

Stayed at Highside Farm B&B once again and as always it was perfect, from the warm welcome to the comfortable beds, lovely décor and a breakfast to keep you going for the day I highly recommend a stay at the farmhouse.

Room Tip: For those unable to climb stairs book the downstairs bedroom

Great BnB, room was faultless with nice en suite. Good breakfast and staff were very accommodating despite me mess the booking up. It is a little far out from keswick (5 miles) cost around £10 in a taxi. Overall, a great place to stay

My family and I stayed here for a weekend in the family room (Ullock Pike), the place was brilliant, clean and friendly. We had a great time and will definitely be going back. The local pub in Bassenthwaite village was excellent for a couple (or more) of local beers.
The owners were attentive and couldn't of done more to assist or help out, we felt very at home here.
Would highly recommend for all.

Room Tip: We stayed in Ullock Pike overlooking the lake with the most comfortable bed ever, but all rooms look...

Really enjoyed our one night stay. Very friendly and pleasant hosts, lovely room with great views. Breakfast was excellent, just what you would want from a farmhouse B&B. Guest sitting room also a very pleasant feature. Would definitely stay again and recommend Highside Farm B&B.

Room Tip: Family room had great views over open fields to Bassenthwaite Lake and peaks in the distance.

We chose this Bed and Breakfast after reading the very good reviews on Tripadvisor - we were not at all disappointed. In fact it exceeded expectations.
- It wasn't just the breakfasts which were just as good as others have said.
- It wasn't just the location which is spot on for the quieter northern part of the Lakes.
- It wasn't just the accommodation which was comfortable and comprehensive.
- It wasn't just the facilities on offer.
It was something more important than that but rather more indefinable - it was the attitudes of all that work there. I was left with the impression that, within reason, nothing was too much trouble, and that your enjoyment of the house and the area was at the forefront of all that they do here.
If the opportunity arose again I would have no hesitation in going back.
It is a great location for walkers, climbers and those wishing to tour around.

Room Tip: Although the rooms on the roadside can pick up road noise this is no real problem and they both have...
