About Katie

High Thorn Farm is a small family run enterprise, occupying an enviable position nestled between the beautiful Lake District National Park and the sweeping Howgills.

We began rearing cattle and sheep on the farm twenty five years ago, renovating the abandoned farm house and traditional stone built barns. Our prime motivation has always been our love of the landscape, stewardship over the natural enviroment and the respect & nurturing of the indigenous wildlife we are so proud to be surrounded by.

A Perfect Get Away !

  • 5 of 5

This is a Beautiful Cottage ,everything you need for a home from home get away.

The views are stunning and the area is so peaceful our visitors during our stay were Rabbits, ducks , Peacocks and each evening at dusk we were given a brilliant display from the local bats amazing ...for those of us that wildlife lovers this was a treat indeed.. There are lots of walks in the area beautiful hedgerows...jaw dropping views from the hill tops and including the walks around the fishing lakes at High Thorn Farm...This is one beautiful area to visit topped off by staying at "The Den" High Thorn Farm....

.My only complaint was our stay just wasn't long each which only means we will have to make a second visit in the not too distant future..

Would recommend to any one who wants to get away from it all and just chill out..

A cosy little bolt hole for exploring the Lake District

  • 4 of 5

The Den is the perfect bolt hole for two, set in lovely countryside. You can literally step out of the front door and explore the surrounding countryside on foot. The cottage is ideally located in the rural setting of Selside but close to the slightly more bustling town of Kendal. It is a beautiful location and was perfect for our short trip to the Lakes for lots of walking and exploring. It was really handy having the cottage as our base and being able to prepare our own food rather than eating out all the time. The Den has everything you would need and suited us perfectly.

Stunning views and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, in a great location close to Kendal and Windermere. Adjacent to 2 x 2 bed cottages but still private. Stunning views and nature at your door with the visit from the peacock, peahen and ducks. Would highly recommend this cottage.

Eindeloos uitzicht

  • 4 of 5

The Den van High Thorn Farm is prachtig gelegen met een eindeloos uitzicht, heerlijk rustig en met goede uitvalsmogelijkheden naar het Lake District en de Yorkshire Dales. Het vriendelijke nabijgelegen Kendal heeft alle voorzieningen. De cottage is netjes, goed uitgerust maar erg klein.

We are in a lovely rural quiet location, with rolling countryside and beautiful views all around, yet we are just a 5-10 minute drive into the busy market town of Kendal, with many amenities including supermarkets, restaurants and bars, shops, hospital etc. The Lake District town of Windermere is just a 20 minute drive.
