High House is a restored and converted 16th/17th century farmhouse in its own grounds, situated near the hamlet of Seathwaite in 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 by many to be the best in the Lakes. As well as walking and climbing clubs, High House is regularly used by outdoor educational groups, and corporate groups for seminar use.
High House has no postal address, but for satnav purposes the post code of the farm in Seathwaite is CA12 5XJ
Its superb location is one of the many reasons that visiting groups often refer to is as their favourite bunkhouse. Being just off the track to Sty Head and Grains Ghyll, the central fells such as Scafell, Great End, and Great Gable can be ascended without the need to drive the car.

The track to Great Gable and the Scafell range via either Sty Head or Esk Hause can be seen leading off to the right, with the Helvellyn range in the far distance.
