The Garden:
In which ever direction you look at Higher Lee, your eyes are met with the breathtaking beauty - the exquisite 17th-century façade, the beautifully maintained formal gardens, the willow maze, the gently bubbling stream.

For children, the 2 acre garden enclosed by dry stone walls offers a self-contained paradise to explore (younger guests should be supervised at the stream). Beyond the garden, the majestic beauty of the Trough of Bowland lies waiting to be discovered. And if that isn't enough, Lake Windermere is less than an hour's drive away.

An amazing, traditional country home with gardens and scenery to take your breath away. If you are a fan of charm and character this property will be right up your street - if you want minimal clean lines and technology, it's probably not for you! We had an amazing few days in Abbeystead - 3 adults and four children. The house was great for the kids with a 2 acre garden to explore - not to mention a games room and attic playroom. The house has a bamboo maze which we all loved and Petes pool which we splashed in. We got great weather when we were there and hardly left the garden. Highly recommended.

Beautiful location and house, our host made us feel very welcome. The house itself was very well stocked with a diverse range of kitchen equipment, toys and books which was a lovely surprise. The location was very peaceful but also only 15 minute's away from an amazing pub and town. It was a great Base to explore the forest and local areas, morecambe and the lakes.
