High Lickbarrow Farm, Windermere

Exclusive access to one family’s Lakeland way of life.

Available for a limited time only, High Lickbarrow Farm is like no National Trust place you have ever experienced before. With the place exclusively yours, we invite you to make yourselves at home and become immersed in a traditional family’s Lakeland way of life. 

Set just above the hustle and bustle of Windermere village, High Lickbarrow is hidden away in the countryside with footpaths and Lakeland gems on the doorstep. Occupied by the Bottomley family since 1947, High Lickbarrow was farmed by the late Elizabeth Bottomley for over 50 years. 

The farmhouse and land was bequeathed to the National Trust by Michael Bottomley following his death in 2015. 

We have now taken all of our bookings for visits to High Lickbarrow. We look forward to welcoming those of you who have bookings with us this year.
