The 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.

Discover Beatrix Potter's Lakeland or walk along the Lake shores or hire a rowing boat and relive the adventures of Swallows and Amazons.

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. Lazing by the lake in Summer or walking amongst the fells, the beautiful Autumnal colours and then hopefully an Indian Summer. Winter with 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 and beer and fantastic activities that make a holiday here live long in the memory.


If you are seeking a rural escape with glorious views and a peaceful environment, then look no further than High Brow. Situated a mile from the nearest civilisation (and the nearest pub) on a dead end road, High Brow is blessed with inspiring views in all directions.

The shores of Ullswater are just ten minutes drive from High Brow, one of Lakeland's longest and most majestic lakes. Lake steamers operate between Pooley Bridge, Howtown and Glenridding - idea for a linear walk perhaps or a leisurely sail across the magnificent Ullswater (there is a bar on board!). You can also hire boats from Pooley Bridge and Glenridding. Ullswater is perfect for watersports of all descriptions and there are plenty of coves and beaches for picnics or fishing.

Helvellyn is the major attraction to most visitors to Ullswater and its villages of Glenridding and Patterdale. There are routes from Glenridding and Patterdale but strong walkers can make the long (but quiet) ascent from High Brow itself.
