About High Hallgarth

A characterful detached cottage in the heart of the Lakes with exposed beams and slate floors.

This timeless Lakeland cottage sits alone in the landscape with views over Little Langdale Tarn and up the valley. The white-washed stone cottage dates back to the 17th-century and although it’s since been renovated, much of its original character remains. Exposed beams, slate floors and an open fire in the old range add to its historic charm. You’ll even discover a few quirkier features such as the tin bath and the earth closet in an outbuilding.

You’ll be in the heart of the Lake District with many of its highlights close by. A good place to start is Blea Tarn (Tarn is the Cumbrian word for a small mountain lake). It’s a photographers dream with its pretty Alpine flowers and views over some of the most famous fells in the Lakes, including The Langdale Pikes and Pike of Blisco.

For longer walks try low level walks around Tilberthwaite or take to the high fells of Coniston or Langdale Valley. The remote setting and lack of light pollution make it the ideal spot for star gazing.

Notes for guests

Access: The accessibility guide is for guidance only. For up to date photos, please see the images on the webpage.

Heating: Electric wall heating included.

Parking: Cars must be parked at Low Hallgarth and visitors must walk 100 yds uphill along the stone/slate track to the cottage. It is not possible to drive to the cottage at all.

Garden: There is a small grassed area by the cottage, plus an area with a slate fire pit that can be used for barbecuing (fuel is not provided).

Access: The approach to the cottage is along a narrow and very uneven track. Low slung vehicles may have difficulty in travelling along this track, especially after rain fall. Responsibility for the upkeep of this track falls with the local council and not the National Trust.

Utilities: The Hallgarth cottages' water supply comes from the fell and may be in short supply at certain times of the year. Although the water is regularly checked to meet required standards you may wish to boil the water before use.

Television/Reception: There is no television as reception is poor in the area.

Please note: There is no bathroom. A tin bath can be found in the shed for use in the cottage where there is plenty of hot water. The lavatory is an earth closet outside the cottage.

Logs: We endeavour to provide wood at the property. This is done on an ad hoc basis by our local forestry team. Due to the location of the property and time demands of the forestry team we cannot guarantee that there will be enough wood for the full period of a booking. There is a log supply for a vast majority of bookings but this should not be relied upon. As we cannot guarantee the supply, any logs you do have are supplied free of charge.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
