Take a walk on the Highside


Welcome to Highside Farm where you will be assured of a first class and comfortable stay at the home of the Mawson family. Relaxed and luxurious Bed & Breakfast accommodation overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake, situated in the outstanding English Lake District between the renowned market town of Keswick and Cockermouth.

Highside Farm

Highside Farm is a traditional Lake District working sheep and beef farm. It has been farmed by the Mawson family for over 50 years. In 2003 the farmhouse was renovated over a period of months and put back together with love, focusing on attention to detail highlighting the authenticity of a working farm of the 1600’s.

The Lake District

The Lake District, also commonly known as The Lakes or Lakeland, is a mountainous region in North West England. A popular holiday destination, it is famous not only for its lakes, forests, and mountains (or fells), but also for its associations with the early nineteenth-century poetry and writings of William Wordsworth and the other Lake Poets.

New for 2017!

We have two fabulous new rooms being created for the coming season. Converted from what was the old grainery the new rooms will be located in the same building, one on the ground floor, one on the first. Each will be perfect to stay in on their own but, as they are the only two rooms in the old grainery, they could easily be reserved as a pair for friends and family wanting to be close together.

Bookings are already being taken for the new rooms and pictures should be available sometime in June this year.
