Stayed for a long weekend at this cottage, what a beautiful place and Location. The cottage is situated adjacent to the owners home in large grounds with a large pond/lake to look out to. Brenda the owner was very helpful nothing was a problem if you needed Anything at all and didn’t feel invasive, she also baked for us for our arrival. The cottage itself is beautifully furnished with high quality furnishings everything is tasteful lots of lovely lights and candles. The bedrooms are the same one with a roll top bath both with balcony doors leading to a outdoor balcony with hot tub. The views are stunning looking out to the edge of the Lake District. The front of the cottage again has seating candles etc will be lovely In the summer sat out on the veranda, even in January we were sat outside admiring the views and peace and tranquility.
Everything you need has been thought of here, already booked to return.
As a family of four (two children under 8) we have recently enjoyed a fabulous weeks holiday at High Rigg. The holiday cottage is nothing short of 5 stars and we fully agree with all of the previous reviews. The cottage is decorated to an exceptionally high standard and is located with picturesque grounds with wonderful views of the local area. Brenda and David, the cottage owners, made us feel really welcome; the gifts of cake and buns were well received by us all! Brenda also put up a lovely tee pee and play tent along with other toys for the children. We all really enjoyed using the hot tub, the patio and balcony area, the bbq and the cosy log fire.
The photos of the cottage reflect High Rigg exactly as it is and the feel of the space is genuinely a home away from home. We all feel throughly relaxed after a truly wonderful holiday and we all can’t wait to come back again!
Thank you Brenda and David
This is an absolutely fantastic place to stay. The family that own it couldn’t have been more accommodating, offering toys for our wee boy and helping us with things in the area.
The hot tub is a great addition to the house and the gardens are beautiful.
We could not fault it and the owner even sold us a super bouquet of flowers for a great deal on our way out.
I only wish I had written this review a year ago when I promised the owner I would.
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.
