We had a wonderful stay at High Rigg. The place is lovely and very peaceful with lovely views from the Balcony all the way across to the lakes. The hosts were excellent nothing being too much trouble without being intrusive. We had a 7 month old baby with us and Brenda was keen to ensure we wanted for nothing. Thanks Brenda for being so nice and fun to be around. we will certainly look to return in the future.

We booked the High Rigg Garden Cottage after searching many places, we were celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary and the first time more than 1 night away from our daughter so we were hoping the stay would be special and it did not let us down. For us this was an expensive short break but because of the occasion we went for it, if there are 2 couples staying then obv the price would be a lot less but even so it was well worth the money. The living room has been updated since the photos and it very cosy and all the furniture is of high quality. Clean and beautiful throughout the cottage overlooks a lovely garden and lake and is soo peaceful. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The Hot Tub got full use and the bath in the master bedroom too. Total relaxation and escape from day to day life. One the way up we stopped off at Lowther Castle and I can recommend this for families as a great place to visit. There is a Co-Op a few miles or so away, I suggest popping there on the way so you can get general food items. We went to Weatheral ( 1 1/2mile away) for a meal at the Wheatsheaf Inn which again was a lovely homely Inn serving lovely well priced quality food. Would love to return one day and did not want to leave.
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The pictures do not lie, this place is immaculate. A gorgeous cosy cottage with wonderful views of the countryside.
The cottage is equipped with everything you would need for a break away.
The hot tub and log fire really add to the feel of the property.
The hosts were lovely, and make sure your stay there is complete.
High recommended and would love to return.
Another lovely stay at High Rigg Cottage, we first visited last September with our teenage son who insisted on a hot tub and we were not disappointed. Being a slightly different group this May the hot tub was not needed but the lovely décor and views of the garden, pond and surrounding scenery did not disappoint. Our new party member was not keen on cats but the owners ensured they were mainly kept away from us and we were able to sit out on the top terrace, which the bed rooms lead out to, and enjoy the sun and views. Barbara and David greeted us as friends and ensured we had a warm welcome and provided a really delicious and appreciated high tea. We used the cottage as a base to visit Hadrian's Wall , Carlisle and the Abbey, on the one bad day of rain we stayed in kept the log fire going and chilled. We hope to visit again in the not too distant future and send thanks to our hosts.
We stayed at High Rigg cottage for 10 days in September and fell in love with the place. From the moment we turned up the drive our expectations were exceeded. We felt very lucky to have chosen such a beautiful place to stay.
The house had everything we needed - lovely comfy sofas to snuggle on at the end of the day with a footstool to rest weary feet, a barbecue and outdoor seating area overlooking the gardens and pond to make the most of the last rays of sunshine, a cosy bed and of course - the hot tub.
We soon fell into a routine of breakfasting on the balcony before setting out to explore the Cumbrian countryside, returning for a relaxing hot tub and a glass of wine.
Brenda and David were brilliant hosts. We were provided with prosecco, delicious muesli bread and milk on arrival. They were never intrusive and gave us some helpful tips on the local area - don't miss the Sunday lunch at the Pheasant Inn in Cumwhitton which you can walk to in 15-20 minutes and the amazing deep fill steak pies from the butcher in Corby Hill - they even offered to lend us bikes.
I wish we could have stayed longer as we had such a lovely time. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage.
