  • Perfect for families, groups and friends
  • Fantastic location

South of Coniston is the pretty village of Torver. As you come into the village from the north, you turn right up a single-track lane, which winds its way up the fell side. At the fork you veer left down a dirt road until you come the first gate and the private drive of High Park Cottage. From here you can see the magnificent whitewashed detached cottage, perched on the fell slopes with forests behind, commanding a view across the village and valley beyond. You pass through another 5-bar gate and discover a little green iron gate that leads to a pretty kitchen garden and the backdoor.

Through a washroom with its Belfast sink and tiled floor, excellent for disrobing of outdoor gear, into the modern kitchen. Though it has all mod cons, it also has a real rural feel - cup racks, bread bin etc. From here you can go into the second living room, which would make an ideal bolt hole for family members to escape one another, either children from parents or vice versa, or even grandparents away from everyone! A patio door leads out to a terrace the length of the house, with easterly views across the valley. The garden has manicured lawns and a monkey-puzzle tree stands tall. What a perfect spot to sit and relax, watch the wildlife, like the local woodpeckers and cuckoos (or your little wild ones!) enjoying the garden. From the second living room there are stairs up to double room and en suite, making this part of the house a standalone annex if needed.

A period tiled hallway leads from the glassed front door and takes you either to a spacious dining room or into the main living room - relax in comfort, enjoy the open fire or gaze out the sash windows at the views. Big wide stairs at the end of the hallway lead you up, past a window seat halfway, looking out over the lawns, to a large landing. Here you'll find a massive bathroom, bathed in colour, from light pouring through the stained glass window. An equally massive bath and walk-in shower match the size of the room. Two double rooms look out across the valley and farmlands below, tastefully decorated, with wooden floors and big beds.

High Park is a unique cottage - high levels of comfort and a real home from home feel, all in peaceful and beautiful surroundings. Once visited, never forgotten.
