High House is situated at the head of the popular valley of Borrowdale in the English Lake District, OS Grid Reference NY235119 - see map. It offers a high standard of bunkhouse/hostel self catering accommodation, and is considered to be the best in the Lakes. It is a converted stone built 16/17C farmhouse in its own grounds, with car access and parking. As well as walking and climbing clubs, High House is regularly used by outdoor educational groups, and corporate groups for seminar use.

Early booking is essential due to the popularity of the facility, especially at week-ends. To this end, the booking calendar is open for the current year, plus the following year. The year after that will not be available until the December of the current year. Please note that High House is now a no smoking building.
