18th century hill farmhouse with character and superb views stretching from the Vale of Lorton to the Scottish mountains. Wonderful walking at all levels, mountain biking in Whinlatter, dog friendly, good wifi, very peaceful, & there's a hot tub available! Keswick 8 miles. (NB. During lockdown this cottage can only be booked by families who are genuinely homeless - eg escaping domestic violence. Discounts possible, please ask).

Indawo
The Vale of Lorton is definitely one of the Lake District's hidden gems - only 8 miles from Keswick yet so peaceful and off the beaten track. There are superb walks here at all levels - from the high peaks of the Grasmoor and Buttermere fells to beautiful lake shore paths. Meanwhile, the trails in nearby Whinlatter put the 'mountain' back into mountain biking!

The Farmhouse is the largest of the 3 High Swinside holiday cottages. It has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 9 people in 8-9 separate beds (you tell me in advance how you want them made up). Built in 1741, most of its rooms have lovely oak beams and other original features.

From the entrance hall with boot racks and coat hooks you enter the dining room with a pine dresser and long farmhouse table. The kitchen is open plan to the dining room and is well-equipped with cooker, hob, microwave, slow cooker, mixer, washing machine, dish washer & fridge/freezer. (Additional shared laundry facilities include a tumbler drier & there's large chest freezer available if needed).

The sitting room has 3 comfortable 3-seater sofas arranged around a tv/dvd and wood burning stove (big basket of logs provided). From the front-facing window there is a stunning view across the Lorton valley to Low Fell.

One of the twin bedrooms is also on this floor and has access down two steps to the kitchen, and through the kitchen to a shower room with an electric shower.

Upstairs there are three more bedrooms. Two of them are large front-facing bedrooms with beautiful views: a family room with a superking & a single bed (which can also be made up as 3 singles); and double bedroom with a superking bed and an ensuite shower room. The third bedroom on this floor is a pretty twin room with a sloping ceiling and a little cottage window facing towards the fellside behind the house.

All the beds in the Farmhouse have comfortable pocket-sprung mattresses. The family bathroom with its sloping beamed ceiling has a bath with a hand-held shower attachment.

Ukungena kwesivakashi
You will also have access to the lovely shared garden with its benches, picnic table, and 2 discretely located hot tubs for enjoying the superb views. There are also hammocks, a simple tree house, a pond with newts and tadpoles, and a camp fire circle. A wooded area of the garden offers a dog-friendly area where you can let your dog off the lead to explore and run about in safety. There is a also secure bike store available, and plenty of parking space. A footpath runs from the cottages to High Lorton 20 minutes walk away where you will find the Lorton Village Shop. The dog-friendly Wheatsheaf pub is 25-35 minutes walk away in Low Lorton (or 10 minutes by car). Behind the cottages lie the open fells with fabulous walking straight from the door.

You can reserve the hot tub for a minimum of 3 nights (@ £10 a night to cover the cost of heating the water). Please note that there are 3 cottages here but only two hot tubs, so you need to book ahead.

Ezinye izinto okumele ziqashelwe
There are two hot tubs at High Swinside - both with wonderful views and filled with water from the High Swinside spring. Both are wood-fired, and one of them call also be heated by solar panels. I make a charge of £10 a night for a minimum 3 nights (payable in cash when you're here). Please let me know when you book the cottage if you would also like to reserve one of the hot tubs for all or part of your stay. (Robes are supplied).

There will be a big basket of logs by your fireplace when you arrive, with coal, paper, kindling, and firelighters all included in your booking. More logs are available at a cost of £3 per basketful (please leave money in the honesty-box provided).

Everything else you might need - from washing up liquid, tea towels & kitchen foil to soap, shampoo, and toilet rolls - are all provided. The exception is bath towels which can be hired for £2 each.

High Lorton, i-United Kingdom

Lorton is a serene and unspoilt Lakeland valley that has remained largely off the beaten track despite its charm and proximity to Keswick and Cockermouth. The walking is excellent - with open fell access on the high Grasmoor fells behind the house, and beautiful walks at all levels throughout the Vale. See the captions under the photos for more idea of how much there is to do and see here, or if you search: high swinside diana you can see more walking and activities information on my site.

I've done many things in my life (joiner, homeopath, walking guide, smallholder...) I've built wardrobes, run walking holidays, milked goats, made cheese - but always my heart has been in the Lake District, and now I have the good fortune to live in one of its most tranquil valleys. The Vale of Lorton is truly a Lakeland hidden gem! You'll find I live just across from the cottages with my hens - in case you need any help, advice, or free range eggs! (Some of the reviews below are from when I ran an airbnb cottage at my former organic smallholding in Shropshire).

Phakathi nokuhlala kwakho
I live just across the way from the cottages and will be here when you arrive to let you in. Please ask if there is anything you need or if you would like suggestions for walks or places to visit during your stay. Delicious free-range eggs also available. NB my cat Raffa lives with me and not in the Farmhouse!
