The Farmhouse, High Lorton, Cockermouth, Cumbria, Lake District National Park

The Farmhouse built in 1741 and that date is burnt into the beam above the main front door has fabulous views down the Lorton valley and forms part of 3 beautiful self catering holiday cottages which reside in an idyllic hillside setting and boast panoramic views of Lorton Valley. The Farmhouse makes an excellent base for wonderful walks and is located just 20 minutes walk from the peaceful Cumbrian village of High Lorton which is only 4 miles away from Cockermouth.

The Farmhouse is a stunning 4 bedroom character property that sleeps up to 9 and retains many of its original features with oak beamed ceilings and some even with their original meat hooks still intact! 

Upon entrance to the property, there is a large dining area and open plan to the kitchen that boasts a long farmhouse table comfortably seating up to nine guests. The kitchen is well equipped for a comfortable family to stay with electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge & freezer and there are further laundry facilities in the basement including a tumble drier, and a large chest freezer that guests can also use.

Outside is a shared garden that has picnic tables and benches where guests can sit back and relax and enjoy the stunning 180 degree views. There is also an enclosed area where dogs are free to roam safely and there is gated access which opens onto the fells with lots of wonderful walks right on your doorstep.

The area surrounding the cottage is ideal for walking. There is a wide range of walks straight from the doorstep including 3 lakes. Whinlatter Forest Park offers extensive trails close by for all levels of mountain bikers. Cockermouth town is a short distance away and has beautiful Georgian architecture, places to eat and independent shops.
