- Highgate accommodates large parties very easily .. we were 8 adults, 3 children and 3 dogs over New Year. The festive decorations were an added bonus. The kitchen was well equipped, but I couldn’t score 10/10 as the washer dryer wasn’t great (they never are anywhere). The living rooms are spacious & comfortable and all the bedrooms are a very good size. The smallest bedroom could do with a bit more storage space, but this is a minor quibble. The underfloor heating was brilliant and we were always cosy and warm. The garden is enclosed and safe for children & dogs. We found a quick route to Keswick and were near Glenridding so although quiet & secluded we never felt cut off. The views of Blencathra & Skiddaw were amazing and we had great weather most of the week .. cold and blustery but sunny which meant some of our party could walk Helvellyan from the house! We would definitely go back to Highgate again.

Hello Gillian, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. How wonderful to spend New Year in the Lakes - there really is no better place to be. It's a fantastic cottage for a big get together, isn't it? The views are exquisite! You couldn't have picked a better location for escaping from the hustle and bustle for a while and getting out and about on some great walks. Thank you also for your feedback - I have made a note of the points you have raised and I will look into this further. I'm thrilled you had a great stay and I hope you will come back and visit us very soon!
