- Would 100% recommend High Brow. We usually stay in a town in the Lake District, our first experience of staying somewhere more remote, loved it. Incredible views, even from the bath. We were really lucky with the weather and were able to spend time outdoors, enjoying the walks directly from the house and/or sitting in the garden - until the midges arrived. Just need to be more prepared for those if we revisited in Summer. Only one of us was up early enough to see a red squirrel, but we so enjoyed the birds that we saw/heard from the garden. The kitchen had everything we needed, we did cook at the house more than we normally would on a holiday. Supermarkets deliver to the property. The lounge was comfortable to relax in. Took a while to get the tv working, possibly the people before had moved some of the cables. Heating easy enough to change/control. Firewood left for our use, was still a bit damp, and would have been nice to have had more left for us to use. The only cleanliness issue was the smell of dogs, when we first arrived, also removed the throw on the sofa because of this. Could have easily stayed for another week, more walks to complete and more wild swimming in Ullswater - next time!

Hi Patricia, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, it's the perfect place to kick back and relax isn't it? The location is stunning, just perfect for heading out exploring on the fells and enjoying some wild swimming! It would be rude not to seeing as the weather was so good.
I hope you can plan a return visit soon, you can be sure of a warm welcome.
