Reviewed 14 June 2014

This is the fifth time we have stayed at High Fold and each visit is just as special as the previous visit. You will not get a better breakfast or view from the dining room, the rooms are of the highest standard together with a very warm welcome from Sue and Les. Their knowledge of the lake district is as good as any printed literature and you leave at the end of your stay knowing that you will return at a future date.

This was our second visit to the Lake District but our first stay at The High Fold and we were not disappointed. The location was breathtaking and so peaceful, with amazing views. Our room, The Kentmere had a four poster bed and was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The breakfast was of the highest quality and plenty of choice, with nothing being too much trouble. Les was very helpful and was very forthcoming with information on things to do and places to visit. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend anybody visiting the Lake District to stay at The High Fold and we cannot wait to stay here again next year.

This is ours second stay in just over a month - we absolutely love it. If I was being selfish I would not tell anyone and keep for ourselves but Les deserves the accolades. From the moment you walk in to tea and biscuits, followed by fab breakfasts each morning. Les has great local knowledge of places to visit and walks to try. Les did us a great pack lunch whilst were on fishing trip and made flasks of coffee - nothing is too much trouble. High Fold is ideally situated for the local pubs The Mortal Man and the Queens Head. If you want further a field the local towns of Ambleside and Gras mere are close by. We will definitely be back.

As the final stage of our round trip we found this awesome place to stay. Very nice welcome from the very helpful owners gave us just a perfect start to find the right places to go to, the right hikes to go for and just have a great pleasent time. The room with a great view was silent, very well maintained and clean. And the very good breakfast was just a perfect fit to the big picture that Susan and Les put together there.

As a repeat visitor it speaks for itself. The welcome on arrival with tea and biscuits ; the extensive fresh fruit platter plus great variety of cooked breakfast ; the wide choice of drink varieties ; the willing provision of fresh milk for our picnics ; the views from the bedroom and breakfast room ; the luxury bedding,willingly adapted for our preference ; changing a wheel when a puncture was incurred . It should be no surprise that we look forward to our next visit . Two pubs within walking distance for evening meals

Room Tip: Book early ! ( but not the room we prefer )

Our first visit to High Fold, hopefully it won.t be our last .Everything was excellent --its position,our room , breakfast, even the weather was wonderful. Les and Susan were very welcoming hosts,nothing was too much trouble for them. There are lots of guides and magazines and other reading matter provided---even photocopied sheets detailing several local walks. Susan and Les have set a very high standard at High Fold.

Room Tip: Applethwaite was large, peaceful and had lovely views.

Our third stay at High Fold and as before everything excellent. A beautiful area, very comfortable accommodation with wonderful views. Excellent breakfast, and watch a wide variety of birds feeding. New born lambs in the fielding next to the property (and rabbits too). If you are unfortunate enough to be walking etc in the rain, outer cloths and boots can be taken away and dried. Nothing too much trouble. Highly recommended. We would certainly recommend the Queens Head for an excellent evening , booking essential. Also a little further afield to Ambleside for a meal and cinema deal and Zefferelli's Italian restaurant also excellent and straight out of the restaurant and in to the cinema. A Beautiful area and excellent food, what more could you ask for!

Room Tip: Occupied two different rooms, both excellent with wonderful views.
