High Kiln Bank Cottage is an excellent, beautiful house located in a quiet and peaceful part of the Lake District. It was the perfect base for exploring the Western Lake District. The owners met us when we arrived and explained how everything works at the house, which was helpful. The kitchen was well stocked and all the appliances were new and user-friendly.

The cottage was fabulous with lots of room and the best view in the world. Just loved our week in the Lake District at High Kiln Bank Farm.

Stunning old farmhouse with amazing views. Very peaceful and situated in an ideal area for walking and cycling. The owners were very friendly. The log fire was very nice. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding was warm and clean. We really hope to return.

Great cottage in a beautiful location. Very handy for some excellent climbing and walking. Very nice lady next door was very helpful and had huge knowledge of local hills and crags.

The location and scenery were second to none. The cottage was very comfortable - a home from home. We could not ask for more and we will definitely return. The whole holiday was superb. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to explore the south lakes.

Comfortable and roomy accommodation with helpful landlord living next door. We liked the remoteness and fantastic countryside which was readily accessible from the property itself.

There are amazing views from picnic table area which was excellent for children / dogs. The lounge was spacious and very comfortable - unusual to get really comfy chairs! It was also peaceful and quiet.

Had a warm welcome and ongoing interaction with the owners throughout the holiday. An excellent location and wonderful walks from the door. The scenery from the cottage was stunning. It was quiet, with birdsong in the morning and the sound of the river below.

The cottage was set in the midst of beautiful unspoilt countryside. It was very quiet and a great retreat from the noise and bustle of the modern world. There was a terrace garden with tables and chairs with lovely views down the Duddon valley. The lounge was large and could easily be used by 7-8 people without feeling cramped. The countryside around is great for walking, so unless you want to walk elsewhere, you could easily spend an enjoyable week exploring the local area.

The location is stunning. To wake up to the beautiful view of the Duddon Valley each morning is a recipe for instant de-stressing. You are in the middle of sparsely populated, dramatic Lakeland fells, moors and fields with many walks, both from the doorstep and slightly further afield.

We had a lovely time for several reasons; the owners were particularly welcoming and the cottage is perfectly located in a very quiet part of the Lakes so we had great walking without too many other visitors. The views from the cottage and the surrounding farm and countryside were wonderful. We will definitely be recommending the cottage to our family and friends and hope to return some time soon.

The location of the property afforded fantastic views of the Duddon Valley and the cottage was a typical farmhouse, with lots of character and masses of room. Beautiful. The welcome from the owner was very warm.

A lovely house in a beautiful location. The owners could not have been more welcoming and friendly, giving lots of advice on the local area and walks.

A great location, with easy access to great walks and cycle rides on and off road direct from the Cottage. Convenient secure store for bikes and a friendly neighbour.

Liked the garden/orchard with a spectacular view and the hospitality of the owner.

A fantastically beautiful and wonderfully quiet part of the Lake District. A bit off the beaten track which made it all the more attractive. But still close enough to everything. A wonderful base for walks on the fells (and swims in the Duddon River). We loved it and only which we had two weeks and not one.
Ms McClen

This cottage is off the beaten track and we found it very relaxing and quiet. We loved the log fire in the living room. The Blacksmiths Arms pub just under 3 miles drive away was a fabulous place for dinner and a drink. This was a great time to be in the Lakes for the lambs and daffodils. We found Broughton a charming place to visit.

We have just returned from a brilliant week here. The cottage itself is lovely; very spacious and in a beautiful setting. The rooms were perfect for our family and beds very comfortable. We loved just going outside and hearing nothing but the occasional bird chirping. The orchard is gorgeous to sit in and just take in the scenery. My daughter loved having the piano in the cottage and also the games and books. It was so nice to spend a week away from wifi and phone signals. The lady next door was so friendly and lovely. She told us of a nice walk to go on near a river. We followed her instructions on how to get there and ended up at a really nice part of the river which the kids ended up playing in most of the day as the weather was roasting. I would love to return here as it was such a relaxing week.

A beautiful farmhouse cottage tucked away from reality, with the most stunning panoramic scenery. A great house for a family reunion or just to get away from a stressful life.

High Kiln Bank cottage is a beautiful, period farmhouse in a remote and rarely-visited part of the Lake District. It is quiet, beautiful, and extremely peaceful. We traveled to the cottage by car, and received good directions which brought us straight to the property. When we arrived, we were met by the owner (even though we were running late) who was extremely helpful and friendly. She showed us how to make everything work - from the hot water heater to locking the upstairs windows for safety. Maybe most impressive and thoughtful is that they knew we were coming with three young children so they had installed a child gate at the top and bottom of the stairs just for us. Very thoughtful. The cottage is very large, with a kitchen and table which seats eight comfortably, lounge, three bedrooms and three baths. The lounge even has space for a grand piano which is tucked away nicely and the owner were happy with my children playing (banging) on the instrument. The showers are great, with lots of hot water and excellent water pressure (not always common in older houses in the UK). The kitchen was well-stocked. There is a very good dishwasher, washer/dryer combo, fridge, freezer, tea kettle, toaster, French press, etc. Plenty of dishes, cutlery, well-made pots and pans, and so on make it easy to cook for a family in the cottage. The views are amazing. The house is perched on a hillside over one of the most picturesque valleys in the Lake District. There are a handful of gardens around the house where you can enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine after dinner. There is a fenced in orchard with a picnic table that is perfect for kids. We brought our dog as well, and often a "pet-friendly" place makes you feel uncomfortable for having brought your dog. That is not the case here, they were very happy with our dog to wander around off the lead. One part of the visit that was very special for our kids is that the owner's 96-year old mother lives in the other half of the holiday rental (think two semi-detached cottages with a door between in the inside that is not used). She has been living there for 70 years and was so sweet to our kids and our dog. She even told us about when the Lake District had no power, no running water, when she was in the RAF during the Second World War. It was a real pleasure to be able to talk with her through the week. Of note, there is no mobile connectivity in this area of the Lake District. There is a land-line phone next door in case of an emergency. Overall, the owners were very kind and accommodating and the cottage is a real gem. It is in a peaceful part of the Western Lake District. We'll go back!

"pass the top of the hill, then over the cattle grids, and turn right after a few yards". This is the end of the connected world, but the beginning of the connection to nature, quietness, a sweet home, and the kindness of its owners. From High Kiln Bank, you will be able to go all around in the Lake district, but then maybe after a few days, you will prefer staying in the sweet Duddon Valley, enjoying your cosy home, the nice views from all windows, and breakfast or tea time in the gardens. The most courageous will run to the top of the hill in the morning, the most gourmets will hike further (motivated by a nearby very nice inn). Just go there !

The cottage is in a beautiful location and there is plenty of room around it for playing with the children or just enjoying the sunshine. There are lots of walks from the cottage and the area is generally quieter than other parts of the Lakes.
