High Winder Cottages offer high quality self-catering accommodation, in peaceful seclusion above the northern reaches of Ullswater. Located near Pooley Bridge, Winder Barn is within the grounds of the owners' 17th century house, surrounded by woods and fields, making the location especially tranquil.

The peaceful grounds of High Winder Cottages provide direct access to the open fells, and attract a wealth of wildlife including resident red squirrels, visiting deer and badgers and numerous birds.
There are exceptional panoramic views over the Lowther, Eamont and Eden Valleys towards the distant Pennine hills, whilst a few minutes walk offers a superb view over Ullswater.
Pooley Bridge, Tirril and Askham all have good village pubs. The market town of Penrith 15 minutes away provides excellent shopping facilities, pubs and restaurants, whilst Keswick, considered to be the adventure capital of the Lake District, is a 30-minute drive away.
