Detatched, Cosy Cottage With Fabulous Mountain Views

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Dec-2016
House in Hartsop, Patterdale, Ullswater, Cumbria, England - Peaceful Location, Superb Fell Walking from the Door

Built in the 1920s by the artist and embroiderer Ann Macbeth, High Bield is a remarkable house which was completely refurbished a few years ago. It was built high on the fell and takes in views of Brotherswater and Ullswater and offers walking from the door to High St, Helvellyn, St Sunday Crag, Fairfield and many other popular spots. Almost every room has a spectacular view, especially the twin room which was originally an artist's studio. The house oozes charm and is very comfortable and warm, with a woodburner in the sitting room.

A fantastic lakes adventure

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Highbield for a week with 2 toddlers, 2 babies and 4 adults in search of a mountain break. It was fantastic; the house is very welcoming and the location is spectacular. We will miss having our meals with such a backdrop! For kids, they do need supervision, but there are endless adventures. For adults many walks from the doorstep.

The house facilities are great/ the kitchen is very well stocked. We would highly recommended the house.

Superb Location and views

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully equipped cottage with magnificent views all around. The approach track is an adventure in itself but well worth it upon arrival.

Well maintained with modern equipment throughout and convenient to explore the area around Ullswater and beyond. A variety of walks available direct from the door and the cottage is surrounded by interesting wildlife.

Very thorough information received from the helpful owner.

High Bield

Great house, fantastic location with the most amazing views all around. Access could be tricky in icy or snowy weather but well worth it.

Location

From the Owner

High Bield is in one of the most amazing locations in the Lake District. It sits above the beautiful village of Hartsop which nestles at the foot of the Kirkstone pass. There are many hugely enjoyable walks from the door. But I have spent many a happy wet Sunday with a cup of tea and the papers, watching the weather move over the valley and the hills around. An artist who lived locally built the house in the 1920s and designed it with the views in mind. Even when the rest of the Lake District is heaving with crowds, there's little chance you'll be bothered by anyone when you're staying at High Bield. Just leave the car in the garage and walk, paint or just light the fire and look at the view.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

High Bield is a rural property up on the fell above the village of Hartsop in the heart of the Lake District. Footpaths pass by the house so it's easy to spend a week walking without even taking the car.
