Beautiful, comfortable cottage for Summer holidays This was our New Year break. Location stunning, although we found it difficult to negotiate the driveway made worse by the snow and ice on the day we arrived. The owners would have helped us to get up the lane with the Land Rover but we could not contact them because there was no phone signal in the surrounding area. However the cottage when we arrived was comfortable and pets no problem. The owners were welcoming and informed us of how the heating worked ( in 2hr bursts) and of the land line next door for emergencies ( you never know with children and older adults), however the old lady next door was away for the holidays. The owner did leave the adjoining door to the ladies cottage unlocked , but even though this was very trusting of them it is not an ideal solution.
We were a party of 7 plus two dogs, however three of us were over 70 and whilst my husband and I are fit and active and loved the walks , our other family member has difficulty with here mobility and found things very difficult as all the bathrooms are upstairs and the terrain difficult for walking outside.
So in closing a beautiful,peaceful "summer" retreat ideally suited for the fit and active and I feel some mention of this should made in the description of the cottage.
On the whole our family enjoyed the break, so if you like to be "down with the sheep" then this is the place for you. We would return but only in warmer weather and alas not with all of our family members which is a pity. Eileen L 2018-01-08
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.
