What a beautiful place. High swinside is located in a remote and quiet location, with stunning views over the valley. The hot tub is a great touch and is located perfectly for the views, we sat out in it under the stars one night too!
The cottage itself is cosy and small, has everything you need, including wood burning stove for a cosy evening in.
Some lovely walks to do all starting a short drive from the cottage.
The owner, Diana, was very eager to help and gave us any information we needed. The perfect host!
We also were charmed by the free range chickens pottering about! We even bought some of their eggs!
We had a wonderful time at the super cottage in this under-visited but lovely part of the Lake District. The cottage has super views over the delightful Lorton Valley. Despite its quiet location it is close to some fabulous and well know walking areas. Diana, the owner, has a huge knowledge of walking in the Lakes and can give excellent advice. Her hens also produce great tasting eggs for breakfast. If you are not afraid of some narrow roads this is the place!!
