Welcome to our family run farm.

About the farm

Sharing the countryside, fishing and farmwith our guests

High Thorn Farm is a small family run enterprise, occupying an enviable position nestled between the beautiful Lake District National Park and the sweeping Howgills. We are situated in one of the UK's most breathtaking places. Come and visit us for your fix of clean air, jaw-dropping scenery and amazing wildlife.

Our prime motivation has always been our love of the landscape, stewardship over the natural enviroment and the respect & nurturing of the indigenous wildlife we are so proud to be surrounded by.

We hope you enjoy our ponds, fields, meadows & uninterupted views of the peaceful countryside.

Over the years we have diversified into other areas. Alongside the farm we now offer luxury accommodation, high quality coarse fishing and stabling so you can bring your horse on holiday with you.
We welcome you to come and share the unique homestead that is High Thorn Farm.
