The Cumbria/Lake District

With its breathtaking mountain scenery, beautiful lakes and picturesque villages, the Lake District is a paradise, not only for outdoor enthusiasts, but for anyone who loves peace and beauty.

The changing seasons bring with them different highlights. Spring is a time of new life with baby lambs, Wordsworth's daffodils and walks through bluebell woods. You can laze by a lake in Summer or walk amongst the surrounding fells. Autumn brings such beautiful colours and hopefully along with it, an Indian Summer. Winter has its cold frosty days and warm snug evenings, sitting in front of an open fire with a large glass of wine.

The beautiful lakes with dramatic fells rising from their shores are just part of a great experience. The Lake District offers excellent local food, beer and fantastic activities that make a holiday here live long in the memory.


From High Winder there are quite exceptional panoramic views over the Lowther, Eamont and Eden valleys towards the distant Pennine hills. The views extend on clear days from the edge of the Yorkshire Dales to the hills of the Scottish Borders to the north whilst a brisk 5 minute walk from the grounds provide a stunning view down the length of Ullswater towards Helvellyn and embracing much of Northern Lakeland.

Although secluded, High Winder is readily accessible and is conveniently situated for visiting much of the Lake District as well as the beautiful Lowther and Eden valleys, in addition to the Scottish Borders and Hadrian's Wall to the north. Pooley Bridge at the foot of Ullswater from where the 'steamers' ply the lake, is just a few minutes drive away, whilst the lovely village of Askham is a little nearer. Both villages have good village shops and pubs, serving good food and a great selection of Lakeland Ales.

The market town of Penrith is 15 minutes away and provides excellent shopping facilities, whilst Keswick, the principal tourist town of Northern Lakeland, is a 30 minute drive. The Southern towns of Windermere and Ambleside are over the Kirkstone Pass, at the far end of Ullswater.

Nearby there is pony trekking and riding, with boating and sailing on Ullswater, and of course hill walking literally from the door.
