"Fabulous getaway.
Loved our stay at High Swinside. Diana is an excellent host, even staying up for us after a mammoth 10 hour journey from the Isle of Wight when the M6 was closed! Excellent location for walking dogs and close to Keswick and Cockermouth by car. Enjoyed our evenings in the hot tub looking out over the wonderful views. Thoroughly recommend a stay here.

"This cosy cottage was a real find and exactly as described. The peaceful and beautiful location was fantastic, the views from the cottage stunning. The bed was comfy and the hot tub great to relax after a long walk. We received a most warm welcome from Diana, our host, who kindly gave us a lot of helpful advice and suggestions for the best walks to suit us and our older dog. Other benefits included the enclosed dog garden and the wonderful fresh eggs from Diana's chickens. We have had a most memorable holiday and will definitely stay here again.

"We had a great couple of days at Diana's cottage. She was incredibly hospitable and had lots of local tips to make the most of our time there. The wood fired hot tubs combined with the wonderful view over the Lorton valley made it a really special place to stay. We look forward to going back there for longer next time."

"Beautiful, cozy, tranquil and breathtaking!! For those wanting to get away from their busy lifestyles and immerse in some beautiful scenery, stunning nature walks and relaxe in an unbelievable hot tub! - this is the holiday for you! Car non-essential, but make sure to grab all supplies nessessary before. The cottage has everything you need; a log fire, patio breakfast room, kitechnette for those who love to cook, friendly chickens roaming the area and the ever so popular hot tub - all to ourselves!!!!!!! The closest pub, Wheatsheaf does gorgeous food (open 6) and the village shop is extremely minimal. If you take a walk down near Crummock Lake, we recommend The Kirkside Inn who offer and tasty lunch or dinner after a long walk and a well deserved pint!!! We can't recommend this enough. Perfect for couples, families and friends who want to be greeted with a gorgeous sunrisenand kissed goodnight by a breathtaking sunset. Dianna is wonderful! So helpful and always around to offer her advice, eggs or candles!!! Well definately be coming back!!"

"We had a fantastic few days at High Lorton. Diana's little cottage is perfect for 2 people, with gorgeous views from the patio room looking out over the fells. Diana is a very caring hostess, making herself available for questions and any help we needed. The location in the Northern Lakes is remote enough to feel like you've escaped the tourists, but still close enough to pubs and shops if you need them. We did 2 fantastic walks, the links on Diana's web site provide some great suggestions for all kinds of rambles. The 2 nearest pubs do good food, the closest, The Wheat sheaf is walkable - 30 mins, including a wobbly bit of path. Alternatively the Kirkstile Inn is a 15 min drive away is does excellent food. Book ahead! We particularly enjoyed the hot tub with the smell of burning wood, the beautiful views and the therapeutic soak for aching muscles. Even better at night in the dark when it's raining and the owls are hooting! My husband is planning a return trip with his road bike and bringing the extended family for walks, rock climbing and paintballing (all are pretty close). A perfect spot for rest & recuperation, or adventure & activity, or even both!"

"Diana's cottages are absolutely fantastic. A home from home in a lovely secluded corner of the Lake District. We totally fell in love with this place and have already booked in for next year! We stayed in the big farmhouse which was spacious and comfortable for our party of 6 adults and 2 children. Particular highlights were the lovely views from the two main bedrooms, the lush super king size bed in the family room, the huge dining table that seats 9 with plenty of elbow room, and the extensive shared garden complete with hot tubs, treehouse, chickens and space for campfires. There's absolutely tons to do in the area with plenty of gentle walks (we enjoyed low fell, rannerdale knots and longthwaite hill), more advanced fells (whiteside, grasmoor), the delights of crummock water and loweswater, climbing at shepherd's in bordowdale and mountain biking etc. In whinlatter Forrest. And of course you can finish every day in the hot tub surrounded by the most beautiful views. Dianna is the perfect host and really helped to make our holiday special. She's a mine of local information and always on hand to offer advice and answer questions. In sum, you won't be disappointed if you book this place for your next holiday. The location is fantastic, the views are to die for and the accommodation itself is luxurious with lots of little extras that help to make a holiday really special and one that you will remember for a long time."
