High House has a large open common room, great for relaxing in front of the nice warm stove.  The coke for the stove is included in the nightly rate.  Its also a good room for a group communal meal.  The room also includes the club’s library which is available for all to use as a reference library (ie without removing any books).  The Library is  great for looking up everything from a walking route up Scafell, locating the classic Corvus climbing route in the next valley, or helping to identify the numerous birds that can be seen from the building.  

High House is a converted 16/17 century farmhouse providing bunkhouse accommodation for groups at the head of  Borrowdale in the Lake District. Surrounded by the beauty of nature, it is the perfect getaway destination.   The Lake District is England’s largest National Park;  home to Scafell Pike – its highest mountain, Wastwater – its deepest lake and thriving communities like Keswick and Bowness-on-Windermere.  You can walk, cycle and splash about here as much as you would like.   With 12 of the largest lakes in England and 3,105 kilometres of rights of way,  the Lakes is the perfect place to let all your worries disappear.
