WHERE EXACTLY ARE WE?

Hidden from the world we're down a secluded lane between Lorton and Cockermouth at the top of the Lake District. If you're trying to find us, pop Low Hall The Lakes into Google Maps rather than the postcode as that often takes you to a local farm instead. If in doubt, give us a call!
