High Ground Cottage is a magical place. High on the fell, with breathtaking mountain views from every window, there are wonderful walks from the door (including one to a waterfall and one to a mountain lake) and only skylarks and sheep to listen to, far from traffic. Yet there are loads of great things to see and do nearby, from the little steam train that puffs its way to the coast to an owl sanctuary and the Cumbria Heavy Horses Centre. This is a less crowded part of the Lakes, but Lake District favourites like Beatrix Potter's Hilltop Farm are within easy reach. You're not far from beautiful sandy beaches either. The cottage itself is spacious, warm and stylish, with a big farmhouse kitchen at its heart and an open fire in one of two sitting rooms.

Interaction with guests
You're completely private and the owners do not live on site. However we have a wonderful chap who lives a few miles away who looks after the cottage for us and who is always available to take your calls if you need help or information. There are great food shops in nearby Broughton-in-Furness, a little post office and stores 3 miles away, and Tesco deliver to the cottage.
