English Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


There is wonderful walking to be enjoyed as well as beaches at Haverigg and Silecroft, not to mention the Hodbarrow RSPB Nature Reserve.

These four detached holiday properties are located at High Lowscales Farm, a traditional Cumbrian hill farm situated in the south-western Lakes, between the beautiful countryside of the Whicham and Duddon Valleys. High Lowscales Farm is a renovated traditional Cumbrian farmhouse and features its own spa hot tub, complete with massage jets and feature lighting; The Byre is a romantic two-storey barn conversion with feature four poster bed, and guests can enjoy their own spa hot tub; The Stables is a cosy two-storey detached stables conversion with a romantic four-poster bed and a hot tub on the decked area; and The Cottage is a spacious two-storey, two-bedroom detached barn conversion and guests can enjoy their own hot tub on the private decked area. The farm is set in 17 acres and has spectacular views down to the Irish Sea and the Duddon Estuary. Public footpaths cross the farmland, and next door lies Millom Park, perfect for woodland walks. The driveway is also a bridleway, ideal for mountain biking in the Whicham Valley and up the 600-metre high Black Combe. The beaches at Haverigg and Silecroft, and the Hodbarrow RSPB reserve are a 10-minute drive, whilst the market town of Broughton-in-Furness is 15 minutes away. Within a half hour drive you will also find Coniston Water, the Barrow-in-Furness Peninsula (pretty drives, Furness Abbey, The Dock Museum, Walney Island Nature Reserve, Piel Island, Furness Owls, Gleaston Watermill and the Cumbrian Coastal Way), Muncaster Castle and “La’al Ratty” miniature steam railway at Ravenglass which all make for wonderful days out. The Aquarium of the Lakes and steam boat cruises on Windermere are a 40-minute drive away. In order to make guests’ stay as relaxing as possible, drop-off suppers and massage and beauty treatments (at the cottages) can be pre-ordered (separate charges apply). Beach 2½ miles.

    My husband and I had a fantastic weekend in The Cottage. What a light, airy and spacious property in such beautiful surroundings! The hot tub was a great added luxury and everything in the property has been thought about. We were really fortunate with the weather and both ourselves and our dog fell in love with the beach at Haverigg. We have promised to bring our two sons next time - if only for them to take on the task of opening the farm gate! Thank you for such treasured memories.

    A lovely modern cottage with beautiful views. Not a great deal to do in the local area but all the Lake District has to offer is a short drive away.

    Beautiful cottage, warm, clean, welcoming, a great place to relax and wonderful that we could take our dog. Also great to see the owners acting on previous customers feedback, making it even more comfortable for the next people.

    i spent three nights with my adult daughters in this beautiful cottage. the welcome gifts were an added bonus and the accommodation beautiful. the peace and tranquillity was unbelievable. unfortunately it was just too cold to brave the hot tub.

    A lovely cottage, beautifully finished and well equipped! There’s a beach nearby and the hot tub was fab! My girlfriend and the two dogs loved it! We will definitely be looking at returning. Brilliant value for money!

    Holidayed at the Cottage in Dec. 2017 - Jan. 2018. Travelled there in the snow - closed roads made this an experience in itself! The cottage was very cosy and warm when we arrived. Nice welcoming pack and instructions were very clear - the only issue was the incorrect WiFi password which other guests had experienced too and had written the correct one in the guest book. Although the heating and hot water were very good the boiler seemed to continually switch off and on throughout the day and night which was a bit noisy in the bedroom above the kitchen. No complaints and would certainly use again.

    Beautiful cottage in a rural location. Excellent for a relaxing stay away and escaping a busy lifestyle! The bed was extremely comfortable and the hot tub fantastic. The cottage is remote and there isn't much to do in the local area especially out of season. However, we booked knowing this and were quite happy to have a relaxing stay.

    I cannot rave about this place enough! It was immaculate and very modern. The decor was gorgeous as well as the views, we had a great sleep and loved the privacy of the hot tub. The books,games and dvds were a nice touch. Giles and Joan went above and beyond to ensure we were happy with our stay. The location was perfect, far enough out to give you the secluded feel yet minutes away from the local village. Top tip - do an online shop to be delivered the day you arrive. It is so hard to get a modern place, with a hot tub that also accepts dogs. We will return!
