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.

A luxurious and comfortable farm retreat with each of the rooms having been individually and carefully designed with you in mind.
The farmhouse dates back to 1668 and still retains many of the original and traditional features such as oak beams and an inglenook fireplace. The array of antique furniture adds to the authentic look and combines an old feel with the comforts of modern day living.

The farm is over 400 acres, nestled at the foot of Ullock Pike and spreads almost from the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake to the summit of the mighty Skiddaw. Breathtaking and idyllic views.

Depending on the time of year you can experience the real farm life, witnessing the birth of a new lamb or calf, almost from the comfort of your own bedroom window! Amazing…

We look forward to welcoming you to our home.
