Another Christmas Stay
Another perfect Christmas stay at this beautiful cottage. Tom & Caroline had made the cottage look perfect and there was a gorgeous Christmas tree and the cottage was decorated so tastefully. We come to stay here for Christmas and it never disappoints us it’s like home to us the views and all the walking right from the back door are amazing. It is a perfect location and so close to Keswick and all the other amazing walks in the surrounding area’s such as Catbells, Robinson and Dale head Buttermere. The hardest thing about staying here is having to leave and we can not wait to return in October 22 Thank you Tom & Caroline

Did not want to come home!!.
My sister and I booked for a week and never imagined exactly how stunning this place is. High Snab is absolutely beautiful, we fell in love with it instantly. The cottage was extremely clean and had everything you needed, including a welcome bowl of fruit, teabags, coffee, biscuits & milk. I like cooking whilst away and found the kitchen had everything I needed which has always been an issues in other places we’ve stayed!!. It is located in the middle of nowhere and is directly at the base of the Newlands horseshoe, starting at Robinsons. We met Tom who was very friendly and helpful but unfortunately didn’t get the chance to meet Caroline as we were out and about walking and exploring everyday!. We had the best views out of every single window, especially out the front overlooking Keswick and Catbells. Highly recommended to anyone that enjoys the fells, peace & quiet and stunning views in an extremely comfortable cottage.

Fantastic views and fantastic cottage
The cottage really has a stunning location in the Newlands valley. Despite being only a few miles from Keswick ,the cottage is in a remote location on the side of a hill up a single lane track. Whichever window you look out of, the view is superb and there are fells and hills all around.and all you hear are the sounds of the countryside all around you. There is a multitude of walks you can do from here or nearby and you hardly need to use your car. The cottage is really well appointed and has everything you might need. It is well decorated and very comfortable to stay in. The hosts Tom and Caroline live in the adjoining farm and are very helpful and friendly with a good knowledge of the local area. We will definitely come again.

Lovely stay
Newlands is lovely and made even better staying at High Snab farm, fantastic views from a well stocked comfortable holiday home. Plenty of walking from the house and Keswick not to far away. Hopefully stay again which shows it must be a good place to stay.

"A Little Gem"
High Snab Farm cottage is a little gem – Caroline and Tom are welcoming and unobtrusive. I loved the sheer beauty of the valley. I loved the wood burning stove and the dishwasher was a big plus! I was greeted on arrival by Caroline. It was a very pleasant surprise to find a vase of pink carnations and a generous bowl of fruit, as well as complimentary ginger biscuits in the kitchen. The fridge was stocked with fresh milk and eggs. Tea, coffee and sugar are also provided. What did I do during my stay? I explored on foot. I visited the Newlands Church. I walked to the reservoir above High Snab and from there up onto Robinson. I shopped in the little shop in Braithwaite and had Sunday lunch in the Royal Oak. I discovered there are a total of 3 pubs in Braithwaite and also a café. I walked from Braithwaite back to the cottage along the Newlands Beck which is a really pretty walk with a pub at Swinside. I walked to Skelgill and through the woods to Lingholm to learn more about Beatrix Potter, Lucie Carr and ‘Mrs Tiggywinkle’ and their connection to the Newlands Valley. I had a lazy day stoking up the wood burning stove, watching DVD’s and the TV, reading and listening to Radio 2. I liked the window seats in the kitchen and lounge; one day whilst watching the changing weather in the valley; a bird of prey flew onto the wall outside the cottage. I enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the location.

Perfect weekend break!
Me and my girlfriend came here for 3 nights. It was perfect! The location was gorgeous with stunning mountain and countryside views. The cottage as so beautiful and spotless. Very friendly owners. Was sad to go back home! We would love to come back in the summer again! Overall, a perfect holiday and can't think anything negative about it! Thank you again for a lovely weekend.

High Snab
What a wonderful place, pictures certainly do not do the place justice. The owners Tom and Caroline were incredibly welcoming, nothing was too much for either of them. They both made sure everything was okay and if we needed anything throughout. Could not recommend this place enough. Will definitely be back in the future :)

Perfect cottage with amazing views
Beautiful cosy cottage for two on a working sheep farm in the picturesque Newlands Valley. The views are amazing and there are plenty of walks from the door. The owners made us feel very welcome with fruit, biscuits and flowers awaiting our arrival. We had a wonderful autumnal break and would definitely like to come back for another visit!

Lovely cottage in lovely peaceful surroundings
Had a lovely relaxing holiday at High Snab Cottage. The cottage was lovely and clean and had everything in it. The cottage was a little secluded but we enjoyed the peace and tranquility. There are amazing walks and scenery right on the doorsteps. Derwent Lake is amazing with beautiful scenery and the kayaking is a must. We will be going back soon!

Hidden gem in a beautiful setting
From start to finish this was a wonderful place to "get away from it all". Caroline & Tom were excellent hosts and their cottage with wonderful views, great location and well appointed beat our expectations. We would definitely recommend this to friends , and have done already!

About the neighborhood
The Newlands Valley is a stunning setting for a base for a Lake District holiday with so much on offer right from the door you may not even need the car once you arrive! The walking on offer is second to none, whether you want a relaxing stroll through the peaceful valley, or an all day mountain hike. Family friendly fells such as Catbells, Causey Pike and Ard Crags are within easy walking distance of the cottage, as are some larger fells such as Robinson, Dale Head and the Coledale group. Newlands Adventure Center is the ideal destination for people looking for something a little more exhilarating. Situated at Stair just a five minute drive from the cottage, they offer a wide range of activities from ghyll scrambling, climbing, mountain biking, archery and much more. Whinlatter Forest which is also close to the cottage offers a tree top climbing experience called 'Go Ape' and an adventure playground for younger children. Newlands is also a superb base for cyclists as the pass offers challenging climbs in both directions. There are two exciting loops that can be ridden straight from the door. Set out west towards Buttermere to take on the notorious Honister pass with a steep dramatic climb out of Butteremere Valley then down into the beautiful Borrowdale Valley where you can cycle through the valley along side the lake and return to Newlands via the village of Portinscale. Alternatively, set out in the opposite direction to take on the Whinlatter Pass which is heavily wooded on the initial uphill before a glorious downhill stretch into the vale of Lorton. This loop takes in Crummock Water before climbing back out of Buttermere Village and over Newlands Pass. Hungry after a long day on the fells? The Swinside Inn is only a 2 mile drive or a 35 minute walk from High Snab Cottage. This traditional lakeland Inn offers a warm welcome with home cooked food, roaring fires and real ales. Braithwaite is the nearest village to High Snab Cottage, just a few miles down the quiet valley road. Here you will find two excellent pubs, The Coledale and The Royal Oak, and two hotels, Ivy House and Middle Ruddings, all serving hearty food and local beers. There is a well stocked village shop selling fresh bread and everyday essentials. Newlands Valley is also well-known for its links with Beatrix Potter; 'The Tale of Mrs Tiggywinkle' uses the Newlands Valley as its backdrop and Catbells, Skelgill and Little Town can all be recognised from her sketches. Keswick is 6 miles from the cottage and is a picturesque town nestled on the shores of Derwent water, the perfect place to spend an afternoon wondering around its array of shops, galleries, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Keswick market is held in the main square every Thursday and Saturday selling a large range of local produce and crafts. The Farmers market is held every Monday selling local meat, cheese, eggs, homemade jams and cakes. It also has two supermarkets, a cinema and award winning theater
