Sitting prominently in the heart of the Duddon Valley, this period cottage has been located on a working farm since 1765, and enjoys beautiful views across to Caw and Stickle Pike. High Hurst is criss-crossed with footpaths and bridleways offering a gateway to the local fells, including Dow Crag and the Coniston mountains. Attached to the owners’ home, High Hurst is part of an original 18th-century farmhouse which has smaller outbuildings, including an original Victorian outhouse. It is surrounded by 20 acres of prime grazing land encompassing a quarter of a mile stretch of the River Duddon, this spate river is crossed by a series of ancient stepping stones along its length. During the lambing season and winter months, Herdwick sheep occupy the associated farmland prior to release onto the upper fells, leaving the owners small flock of Ryeland sheep as permanent residents of the farm, keeping the hens company. Secluded, peaceful and with breathtaking views, High Hurst offers the perfect location for the Lake District visitor looking for inspiration and relaxation.
