Blue & Green holiday cottages: High Lowscales Farm, Whicham Valley


High Lowscales Farm is a traditional Cumbrian hill farm situated in the south-western lakes in Cumbria and is available to book now through cottages4you.

The detached, Georgian farmhouse is set in 17 acres and has spectacular views down to the Irish Sea and the Duddon Estuary. Public footpaths across the farmland, and nearby Millom Park provide excellent woodland walks for guests. The farm’s driveway is also a bridleway, making it 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 just 15-minutes away. Within half an hour drive visitors can also find Coniston Water, the South Lakes Wild Animal Park at Dalton-in Furness and Muncaster Castle, all of which make excellent family days out. The Aquarium of the Lakes and steamboat cruises on Windermere are a 40-minute drive.

When at the property,  guests can enjoy the wonderful views of the Whicham countryside and Duddon valley from a spa hot tub, complete with built in-sound system and feature lighting. Guests can also pre-order shopping, ‘drop of suppers’ and beauty treatments at the cottage, for an additional cost, to ensure their stay is as relaxing as possible.

Features:  On the ground floor is a living room/kitchen, snug, dining room and utility room. The first floor consists of one double bedroom, with en-suite bathroom, and two twin bedrooms, one of which has an additional bunk and pull out single bed. The remaining bedroom is located on the second floor and also has an en-suite bathroom.
