THE AREA Highside Farm is set within the North West region of the Lake District World Heritage Site which is England's largest National Park. Amidst famous fells which have been documented by the likes of Wainwright, the scenery is second to none and arguably the most beautiful place in England.

Albeit a rural haven, the strong road network system provides easy access not only to the neighbouring towns of Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith which have a wealth of day to day facilities, but also the larger business centres of Newcastle, Glasgow and Manchester, which are all reached in little more than two hours and enjoy both domestic and international travel options by rail and air.
