About Helen Price

I am a mother of 2 children, and live with my husband in a converted barn next door to the holiday cottage.

I grew up at Hagg End, and moved back to live here in 2005. We converted the barn in 2007-8 and moved in, in 2008. We now holiday let the old farm house where I lived as a child. One of the reasons we moved back was to give our children the life style that I had as a child, the sense of freedom and openness which you don't get in a town or city. Surrounded by countryside, we are very lucky to see lots of wild animals as well as the farm animals you would expect. We have a family of deer who are never far away, and see very regularly, daily at certain times of the year. A barn owl who lives at the next property and all the birds who like to wake us with a chorus of happy sounds, including our resident Woodpecker.

Helen Price purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Helen Price chose England

It was the home of my childhood. It was built around 1699, (we have deeds to go back this far, but she could be a few years older), and has retained most of its original character.

The setting is ideal for raising children, surrounded by farmland, and footpaths in all directions. There is no shortage of places to go and see. We have the most beautiful skies at night when there are no clouds. The stars are amazing to see, and one of the reasons I love the place so much.

Although peaceful and having a sense of remoteness, we are only 30 mins from the M6 and 10 mins from Lake Windermere, so ideal for exploring the Lakes. A great location to live or work or holiday.

We also welcome pets, and allow up to 3 dogs as standard, if you wish to bring more, just ask, we try to accommodate our guests when we can.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage comes fully equipped, with everything you can think of. If there is something you need just let us know and we will do our best to get it for you.

The large kitchen diner is a big hit with our guests, and it is true, especially here, that the kitchen is the heart of the home. The lounge with its wood burner is cosy and welcoming especially after a long walk, and everyone can relax together, watching the fire, or if that isn't enough the TV too.

Hagg End can be a place for parties (no one to hear the noise so be a loud as you like), or to just sit and unwind, and enjoy the peace and quiet.

A great location if you have children or pets. There are lots of walks with no cars to worry about, and the views are spectacular on the walk to Lake Windermere just 2.5 miles away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

1. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time at Hagg End and would return in a heart beat. This was exactly the kind of place we were hoping for. Thank you Helen and Petros for sharing your world with us! The McMillens and Co

2. Plenty of room for 10 of us plus baby. Brilliant to have dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier and such a big fridge. We never ran out of mugs and teaspoons, unlike at home. The trampoline was a great hit with all ages. Weather was perfect -warm, calm, dry and often sunny. The peace and quite was just what we needed even if we were rowdy! The Herbert Family

3. We’ve had a fantastic weekend in a superbly equipped cottage. There’s masses of room for all of us and our mess, including 2 guitars and a mandocello! and 2 dogs! Great location, plenty of good walks, some rowing, steamboats and a brilliant visit to Zeferellis Cinema with dinner. Lots of sheep, some small cows, a deer and a red squirrel. Thank you for a lovely week. The Harrison Family

Incredible cottage, extremely welcoming hosts. Overall a fantastic stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Helen's cottage for my father in laws 70th birthday! Our party was 8 adults, 1 child and 4 dogs so we needed somewhere large, with lots of bathrooms and space to relax and dine. This cottage certainly did not disappoint.nit had everything you could need. Extremely well equipped, beautifully decorated and a real home away from home! The dining kitchen is perfect for long nights chatting and eating and the location was perfect for 4 excited pooches! Helen and her husband made us extremely welcome and could not do enough! Thanks for making it such a wonderful stay! We would love to come back!

Excellent - home from home

  • 5 of 5

We visited Lakeland Cottage in November for my dads 60th birthday. There was 10 of us altogether. We had such a great time and the walk from the cottage to Windermere was lovely.

The cottage was really homely and lovely and warm. There was plenty of room for all of us. The overall property was clean and tidy and well maintained.

Helen and family were really welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

I would love to visit again and would recommend to others.

Lovely house with cottage feel.

  • 5 of 5

Helen was on hand to help us arrive and leave so we knew where everything was and what to do.

The large reception and kitchen are ideal for a big group. The property was clean, tidy and still felt very homely. I would recommend this to other groups of 10 and we'll consider it when we return in future years.

Holiday with family and dogs

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is at the end of a narrow track and remote from the normal world. The lounge and kitchen were excellent, while the bedroom arrangement, while useful for families wishing to sleep together, weren't totally to our liking. The field at the back of the property was loved by the dogs and very useful to let them run.

A common Lake District issue was the unreliable wifi but that comes with the location and not what what you visit for.

Overall a very enjoyable stay.
