Highgate is an imposing farmhouse that dates back to the 19th Century and has been beautifully refurbished to create a fantastic holiday cottage for a larger group.

With five spacious bedrooms (one on the ground floor) and five smart luxury bathrooms, relax in the well-furnished sitting room, dine in the elegant dining room, enjoy the family day room to retreat with a book, or let the children play.The farmhouse kitchen is of course, the heart of the home: cosy and welcoming and well equipped with quality fittings and everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay.A generous utility room houses the large fridge freezer and is also equipped with washing machine and tumble drier.Adjacent to the back door is the boot room, for all your outdoor gear and can fit bikes too.Outside, at the rear of the property the courtyard offers parking for four cars and there is a raised private patio ideal for BBQs and a place to enjoy a drink in the evening.Hutton John is a small hamlet close to Watermillock and the popular village of Pooley Bridge at the northernmost tip of Ullswater, with lots of selection pubs, cafes and shops to enjoy, and is popular all year round.There?s a huge selection of footpaths and bridleways and there are walks and cycle routes for all.Travelling from the central Lakes over the stunning Kirkstone Pass, drop down into the beautiful glacial carved landscapes surrounding the Lake itself, with villages along its shoreline.At the southern end of the Lake you will find Glenridding, a popular little village and a starting point for Helvellyn and Striding Edge.A gentler walk is Aira Force, probably the most famous of the Lake District waterfalls.The main force falls some 70ft below a stone footbridge - so don't forget your camera.The A591 winds its way from Ambleside to Grasmere and Keswick, branching off to Coniston and such delights as the Langdale Valley and Hawkshead.Ullswater is thought by many to be the most beautiful of all the lakes in the northern Lake District, being a serpentine body of water snaking a nine-mile course close to magnificent fells, woodland and mountain.Much of the lake, its shore and surrounding fells are accessible to explore, and the newly completed Ullswater Way takes you all the way round.If you?re wanting to get on the water, there are steam cruises from Glenridding and Howtown.Further afield and a 20-minute drive is Keswick the main town of the north lakes, a bustling market town set between the peaks of Skiddaw and the gentle beauty of Derwentwater.Here you?ll find good shops, a host of restaurants and cafes, along with museums, a theatre, cinema and leisure centre.Take a boat trip or hire one for yourself and explore the shoreline and little bays.The market towns of Penrith and Alston lie to the North West on the edge of the Eden Valley and are well worth a visit.Grasmere & Ambleside lie to the south.
