High Wray was even better than we had expected. Sheila and Chris were welcoming and helpful, with delicious cake and tea every afternoon and top-notch breakfasts. The location is terrific, with none of the Lake District crowds while only 5 minutes from either Ambleside or Hawkshead. As a secluded farm between Latterbarrow and Lake Windemere, there are several excellent walks literally leaving from the front door (Latterbarrow above, the Tarn below). Hawkshead has several decent pubs - the Queens Head in particular - so there is no shortage of places to eat. All of which was enhanced by Pippin the house cat ... Such a great break!
