High Lowscales Farm is a traditional, Cumbrian hill farm situated in the south-western Lakes, between the beautiful countryside of the Whicham and Duddon Valleys. This detached, Georgian farmhouse is set in 17 acres, with spectacular views down to the Irish Sea and the Duddon Estuary and is the perfect holiday location. Public footpaths cross the farmland, and next door lies Millom Park, perfect for woodland walks. The farm’s driveway is also a bridleway, ideal for mountain biking in the Whicham Valley and up the 600m high Black Combe. The beaches at Haverigg and Silecroft, Port Haverigg Watersports and the Hodbarrow RSPB reserve are a 10-minute drive, whilst the cute market town of Broughton-in-Furness is 15 minutes away. Within a half hour drive you will also find Coniston Water, the South Lakes Wild Animal Park at Dalton-in-Furness, Muncaster Castle and ’La’al Ratty’ miniature steam railway at Ravenglass, which all make for wonderful family days out. The Aquarium of the Lakes and steam boat cruises on Windermere are a 40-minute drive. You can enjoy wonderful views from your very own spa hot tub, complete with massage jets, built-in sound system and feature lighting. In order to make guests’ stays as relaxing as possible, shopping, ‘drop off suppers’ and massage and beauty treatments (at the cottage) can be preordered (separate charges apply). Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
