With its beautiful setting, magnificent views and well appointed rooms, High Fold is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. High Fold Guest House is set in its own grounds, with ample parking and is less than 3 miles from Windermere and Ambleside.
The design of the house has enabled all the guest bedrooms and the dining room to have excellent views* and all the bedrooms are named after local landmarks. All bedrooms are en/suite and fitted with modern MIRA showers - ensuring ample delivery of hot water.
* Star Crag has views of the fells to the West and East via Velux roof windows.
Tea and coffee making facilities and complementary toiletries are provided for guests' convenience. Bedrooms also include clock radios, hairdryers and colour TVs.
High Fold is completely centrally heated - with all bedrooms having controllable radiators.
High Fold Guest House provides a central base to explore Troutbeck, Ambleside, Windermere and the Lake District. Its rural location makes it particularly popular with walkers and cyclists - or those who simply wish to 'get away from it all' and sample peace and tranquillity in beautiful surroundings.
Troutbeck remains unspoilt and has inspired artists, poets and romantics throughout the ages. It remains one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District.
Troutbeck provides a quiet retreat from the hustle & bustle of nearby Windermere and Ambleside. However guests not wishing to drive to enjoy evening and lunchtime meals will find good food, fine wines and ales at two excellent Inn/restaurants, both within walking distance of High Fold Guest House.
High Fold is surrounded by typical Lake District scenery of lush green valleys, becks (streams), hills and mountain peaks. The house overlooks the Troutbeck valley and Applethwaite to the East. The fells around Troutbeck Park, the Tongue, and the peaks of Yoke, Ill Bell and Froswick lie to the North East. To the North lie the fells of Park Fell, Kirkstone Pass, the High Street range and the route of a Roman road. To the North West of High Fold is Wansfell Pike, from which Ambleside and Lake Windermere can be viewed.
Whatever your reason for visiting you are guaranteed the best care and attention throughout your stay with us here at High Fold Guest House and a warm welcome awaits you.
We look forward to welcoming you to our home,
Les & Susan Bradley
