The cottage is in a beautiful location and there is plenty of room around it for playing with the children or just enjoying the sunshine. There are lots of walks from the cottage and the area is generally quieter than other parts of the Lakes. Mrs Winstanley 2016-07-31
Fantastic cottage and beautiful scenery. We have just returned from a brilliant week here. The cottage itself is lovely; very spacious and in a beautiful setting. The rooms were perfect for our family and beds very comfortable. We loved just going outside and hearing nothing but the occasional bird chirping. The orchard is gorgeous to sit in and just take in the scenery. My daughter loved having the piano in the cottage and also the games and books. It was so nice to spend a week away from wifi and phone signals.
The lady next door was so friendly and lovely. She told us of a nice walk to go on near a river. We followed her instructions on how to get there and ended up at a really nice part of the river which the kids ended up playing in most of the day as the weather was roasting.
I would love to return here as it was such a relaxing week. Lucy S 2016-07-25
Perfect peaceful retreat A beautiful farmhouse cottage tucked away from reality, with the most stunning panoramic scenery. A great house for a family reunion or just to get away from a stressful life. Sandi J 2016-06-13
High Kiln Bank Cottage is an excellent, beautiful house located in a quiet and peaceful part of the Lake District. It was the perfect base for exploring the Western Lake District. The owners met us when we arrived and explained how everything works at the house, which was helpful. The kitchen was well stocked and all the appliances were new and user-friendly.

Beautiful, peaceful period cottage in the Duddon Valley High Kiln Bank cottage is a beautiful, period farmhouse in a remote and rarely-visited part of the Lake District. It is quiet, beautiful, and extremely peaceful. We traveled to the cottage by car, and received good directions which brought us straight to the property. When we arrived, we were met by the owner (even though we were running late) who was extremely helpful and friendly. She showed us how to make everything work - from the hot water heater to locking the upstairs windows for safety. Maybe most impressive and thoughtful is that they knew we were coming with three young children so they had installed a child gate at the top and bottom of the stairs just for us. Very thoughtful.
The cottage is very large, with a kitchen and table which seats eight comfortably, lounge, three bedrooms and three baths. The lounge even has space for a grand piano which is tucked away nicely and the owner were happy with my children playing (banging) on the instrument. The showers are great, with lots of hot water and excellent water pressure (not always common in older houses in the UK). The kitchen was well-stocked. There is a very good dishwasher, washer/dryer combo, fridge, freezer, tea kettle, toaster, French press, etc. Plenty of dishes, cutlery, well-made pots and pans, and so on make it easy to cook for a family in the cottage.
The views are amazing. The house is perched on a hillside over one of the most picturesque valleys in the Lake District. There are a handful of gardens around the house where you can enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine after dinner. There is a fenced in orchard with a picnic table that is perfect for kids. We brought our dog as well, and often a "pet-friendly" place makes you feel uncomfortable for having brought your dog. That is not the case here, they were very happy with our dog to wander around off the lead.
One part of the visit that was very special for our kids is that the owner's 96-year old mother lives in the other half of the holiday rental (think two semi-detached cottages with a door between in the inside that is not used). She has been living there for 70 years and was so sweet to our kids and our dog. She even told us about when the Lake District had no power, no running water, when she was in the RAF during the Second World War. It was a real pleasure to be able to talk with her through the week.
Of note, there is no mobile connectivity in this area of the Lake District. There is a land-line phone next door in case of an emergency.
Overall, the owners were very kind and accommodating and the cottage is a real gem. It is in a peaceful part of the Western Lake District. We'll go back! brandonandlinda 2016-06-05
