High Moss

 

Come and de-stress in Wordsworth’s favourite valley, in a landscape virtually unchanged since his time.   High Moss is an 18th century farmhouse, with 2 foot thick stone walls, exposed beams and original doors. It lies within Turner Hall Farm, below the Seathwaite and Coniston Fells, beside the ancient Walna Scar track.  Listen to the silence,  broken only by birdsong.  Wander beside the rivers and streams, or climb a peak and then reward yourselves with a meal at the Newfield Inn, (the hikers’ portions are legendary), just under a mile from the cottage. 

Children love the cute Herdwick lambs and the baby rabbits in all sorts of colours. They can play in the little waterfalls nearby, and practise rock climbing on the smooth boulders set in the field above High Moss. 

Check out some of the places to visit locally and local residents you might encounter.

On lazy days you can curl up beside the open fire, (there are books to suit all tastes and ages), or relax in bed and look at the view down the valley . If you can prise yourselves out, there are lots of interesting things to see and do in the south and west of Cumbria.  (See www.duddonvalley.co.uk, and for some great views, look here)   Broughton-in-Furness (and here) at the foot of the valley is an attractive and interesting small market town where you can buy local produce and crafts, and  eat out.
