High Swinside Farmhouse was built in 1741 and has many original features. It was once home to the Jennings Brothers who had their first brewery here. There are superb 180 degree views from the garden. Here looking south you see the Dodd on the left and Melbreak overlooking Crummock Water ahead.

Our stay at High Swinside was a great way to end our trip in the UK. It truly is out in the countryside of Lake District with no one else around. The views are incredible and it is so peaceful and relaxing there. There are many trails for some countryside walking. It is also a…

Great time at Diana's place. Location is breathtaking and she is always on hand to offer advice. The house is run off spring water so is very clean & fresh. The hot tubs are just great and give it an added touch. Would definitely come back. Thanks

Lorton is a serene and unspoilt Lakeland valley that has remained largely off the beaten track despite its charm and proximity to Keswick and Cockermouth. The walking is excellent - with open fell acc…

Getting around

If coming by car you will probably approach this part of the Lake District from the M6 (Junction 40) via Keswick and over modest Whinlatter pass into the Lorton valley. Or if you're coming from Scotla…
