With its beautiful setting, magnificent views and well appointed rooms, High Fold is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.

High Fold Guest House provides a central base to explore Troutbeck, Ambleside, Windermere and the Lake District. Its rural location makes it particularly popular with walkers and cyclists - or those who simply wish to 'get away from it all' and sample peace and tranquillity in beautiful surroundings.
Troutbeck provides a quiet retreat from the hustle & bustle of nearby Windermere and Ambleside. However guests not wishing to drive to enjoy evening and lunchtime meals will find good food, fine wines and ales at two excellent Inn/restaurants, both within walking distance of High Fold Guest House.
The name 'High Fold’ reflects the practice of ‘folding’ the sheep in a protective enclosure. This walled enclosure is still in existence opposite the house. The house is surrounded by typical Lake District scenery of lush green valleys, becks (streams), hills and mountain peaks. The house overlooks the Troutbeck valley and Applethwaite to the East. The fells around Troutbeck Park, the Tongue, and the peaks of Yoke, Ill Bell and Froswick lie to the North East. To the North lie the fells of Park Fell, Kirkstone Pass, the High Street range and the route of a Roman road. To the North West of High Fold is Wansfell Pike, from which Ambleside and Lake Windermere can be viewed.
