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.
