The house and garden have superb views of the hills around and the valley below. The house is warm and cosy and was recently refurbished. It has a full central heating system as well as a wood burning stove in the sitting room. The kitchen is well appointed with dishwasher, microwave and electric oven and hob. There is a downstairs shower room and an upstairs bathroom. Bedlinen and towels are provided. The house also has the benefit of satellite broadband.The house is an excellent base from which to walk – around Angle Tarn, on to the High Street ridge, or over to Fairfield and St Sunday Crag. The garden is on a hillside and therefore steep in places. Very young children need to be supervised. A farm track leads up to the house. Please take care when driving a low vehicle.The nearest shop

Location description from owner

The England region

The Lake District is one of the most spectacular places for hillwalking in England. Each valley has its own identity and the geological features, farms, landscapes and local people bring a rich diversity of interests and beauty to the area.

Patterdale

The coast to coast walk passes along the nearby footpaths. Glenridding Sailing Centre is a great base from which you can hire sailing boats and windsurfers on Ullswater. Amazing walks are on the doorstep - High Street, Hellvellyn, Place Fell, St Sunday Crag, Fairfield.

“Fantastic location & views, very cosy and comfortable cottage”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2013

We have been on holidays to the Lake District every year for the past 12 - 13 years, staying in different cottages in various parts of the Lake District. High Bield exceeded our expectations in every way. In a quiet location and off the beaten track, High Bield has all mod cons , yet retains it's unique traditional cottage features. During our stay we had really heavy snowfall which stopped us using the track up to the cottage. The snow drifts in places on the track were between 2 - 3 feet deep. This was too deep even for most 4 x 4's including ours! Even the entrance to the village was cut off due to the 5 feet snow drifts! The locals in the village were very friendly and gave us permission to park in their parking area down in the village. We did manage to hike to the Post Office in Patterdale for supplies to keep us going. It was an adventure and hard work through knee deep snow. The cottage with the log burner was very cosy with the blizzard outside. It was very picturesque and our first experience of snow in the Lakes. High Bield is a beautiful place to stay and we would recommend it. We will definitely be returning in the future.

“Beautiful cottage with spectacular views”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2013

Two families stayed at this beautiful cottage four adults and four children from 7 years to 14 years. The veiw from the cottage is very dramatic and you can start your walks friom the door. We saw badgers and deer wondering around when the sun went down. The local pubs are great. We had a great night in the Brotherswater inn on New years eve. The cottage has a lovely old feel about it but with all the mod cons, clean, spacious, warm and plenty of hot water. Wonderful.

“The best place to stay in the lakes”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2011

High Bield is a well equipped property set in a stunning location. It's off the beaten track but not too isolated. The house is well maintained and furnished to a high standard. The views are amazing and we absolutely love staying here.

“A fabulous week in a lovely house”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2011

High Bield is a beautiful house in a dramatic setting. It has been fitted out to a very high standard and wants for nothing. We return year after year and love it. There are numerous interesting walks from the front door and the views have to be seen to be believed..

“Best ever self-catering property we have stayed in”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2011

The best holiday cottage ever, extremely well equipped with everything we needed, absolutely fantastic, brilliant position with fabulous views - wish we could have stayed a few more weeks. Did hill walking every day from the cottage. We will definitely be coming back. Brian, Carol and Family
