Located at Troutbeck, between Ullswater and Keswick, Highgate Close has been a firm favourite since it joined Sally's Cottages last year. It's beautiful throughout with a kitchen that you've always dreamed about having (well I have, anyway), a dining table fit for a banquet, two living areas and stunning views of the surrounding Lakeland fells.
Sleeps 8, two pets welcome

Named Wainwright's Loft in honour of local legend Alfred Wainwright who wrote pictorial guides to walks in the Lakeland Fells - people from all over set themselves the challenge of ticking all the "Wainwrights", many taking a whole lifetime to achieve it.
And Wainwright's Loft? Well it's a wonderful apartment with parking, a quiet roof terrace and beautiful furnishings. After a day on the fells, curl up in front of the wood burner and enjoy the moment!
Sleeps 2, 0 dogs
