    Fabulous place!



    out of 10

    We stayed at Highside for the second fortnight in May and found ourselves amidst glorious countryside, May blossom and Cuckoos . Highside is in a secluded situation along a lane and yet near the Buttermere Valley for mountains , lakes and the Kirkstile Inn. The house is spacious , luxurious and homely with far reaching views. It was perfect for our extended family.The owner was extremely helpful . Ten out of ten !

    We had an amazing time fabulous house the only criticism is there were no mirrors in the bedrooms and all the girls had problem with drying hair and makeup etc.



    out of 10

    Highside is a great family friendly cottage set in wonderful grounds. We all enjoyed it so much we will be returning again in 2019. Most of our time was spent in the large kitchen and adjoining Dining Room, and relaxing in the large lounge after long hikes and dog walks. We would also recommend dining in the Pheasant Inn which has great food and friendly staff.
