High Bield in Cumbria, a cottage in The Lakes, Cumbria and Lancashire: High Bield exterior

5-bed cottage high on fell above Hartsop near Patterdale.

High Bield is a detached house sleeping 8, which sits high above the beautiful village of Hartsop at the foot of the Kirkstone Pass. Built in the 1920s by the 'Glasgow Girl' Ann Macbeth, the house and garden have superb views of Brotherswater and Ullswater. The warm and cosy house was recently refurbished to a very high standard. The house has wifi.

The house is entered via the newly built sun porch - perfect for drying all your outdoor gear. A glazed door leads to the dining area, which take in the spectacular view over Brotherswater, and the newly fitted kitchen. There is a walk-in utility room with laundry facilities. The attractive sitting room with log burner has fine views. There are two good double bedrooms on the ground floor, one with a king-sized bed and one with a double bed, and a new bathroom with large shower, basin and wc. Upstairs you will find three further bedrooms - two generous singles, and an interestingly shaped twin which was formerly the artist studio. Upstairs is also a second bathroom with bath, basin and wc. Good views from all the main windows. The house is comfortable, newly decorated and equipped throughout with solid wood floors and rugs. Period features, like original fireplaces, have been retained throughout.

Outside there is a lovely rocky hillside garden with wild flowers and mature trees which children will love as a hide-out. It is steep in places and very young children will need to be supervised. There is parking for two or three cars in the drive or garage. The approach to the house is up a track which can be an adventure in winter. Please take care if bringing a vehicle with little clearance. To see pictures of the track click on the link to our website on this page.

The house is an excellent base from which to walk, around Angle Tarn, on to the High Street ridge, or over to Fairfield and St Sunday Crag. Also don't miss a cruise on beautiful Ullswater where you can take a steamer ride to Howtown with a walk back along the east side of the lake, or spend a full day sailing up to Pooley Bridge for lunch in one of the many local pubs or cafés. Glenridding and Patterdale make good bases with shops for daily supplies, outdoor equipment and several pubs and eating places. The nearest shops can be found in Patterdale - it has an excellent post office that sells firewood, newspapers and home made bread amongst other things.
