A very warm welcome to Winder Green, a spacious and comfortable holiday home for up to 6 people at High Winder. Boasting four well-appointed ground-floor bedrooms, stunning views from its first floor living area and gorgeous socialising space, it offers fantastic holiday accommodation for a larger family or small group to explore this tranquil area. Winder Green is one of four individual properties that make up High Winder Cottages situated in peaceful seclusion in the grounds of the owner's 17th century home. Handily placed between Pooley Bridge and the beautiful Eden and Lowther Valleys which makes for glorious panoramic views of the Pennines and the valley floor below.
High Winder Cottages sit in a privileged position perched high above the Lowther Valley just over the fell from picturesque Ullswater. There's a world of fabulous walking nearby ranging from Lakeland's mightiest fell tops to gentle riverside ambles. Why not head up on to the fell path behind the cottages where a short walk will reward you with a stunning view of Ullswater? You might even encounter some of the area's wild ponies on your jaunt! Alternatively head down to Askham and along the River Lowther taking in views of the majestic ruins of Lowther Castle along the way. The surrounding villages offer some excellent options for eating out with good village pubs on offer in Askham, Tirril and Pooley Bridge as well as highly regarded fine dining at Sharrow Bay. From Pooley Bridge you can catch one of the stately Ullswater Steamers, which wind their way around the Lake opening up linear walks along this most picturesque of valleys.
Only slightly further afield there's so much to do. A 15-minute drive takes you to the charming market town of Penrith where you'll find a great choice of shops and eateries while a 30-minute drive will deliver you to the Lake District's adventure capital, Keswick. Why not get well prepared and scale one of the Lake District's giants such as Helvellyn or Skiddaw? Alternatively explore the rich history of the area at Dalemain or Brougham Castle, both less than five miles from the door. After a day's exploration come back to High Winder and enjoy the spectacle of visiting wildlife ranging from deer, badgers and a fabulous range of birdlife. Not forgetting some amazingly tame and photogenic red squirrels who call the place home. Whether you choose to spend your visit exploring the unparalleled natural heritage of the area or delighting in its history, you'll be sure to want to visit High Winder time and time again.
The cottages at High Winder can also be let together if you are looking to accommodate a larger group.
