The Wild Hart

The Wild Hart consists of three beautifully appointed and individually designed self-catering properties in the heart of the glorious Lake District landscape. With views to die for, interiors to inspire and a level of comfort and service that seduces you into “slow”….your luxury Lakeland holiday starts here.

All of the cottages are joint creations. As a local architect (see Richard is the driving force behind all the design and re-modelling of the properties….and undertakes much of the building work too. Helen, formerly a marketing professional in London, provides the interior flare (and a few headaches for Richard) and is always on the look out for new artists and designers who can contribute something to the properties. Commissions have ranged from a single glass tile to create a feature in a kitchen splashback to the fabrication of a bespoke chandelier. Both are passionate about the details, and therefore also clean, maintain and manage the properties to exemplary standards.

Richard and Helen are based in Hartsop, where the wild red deer are frequently seen on the fell sides around the village. The Wild Hart captures both the romance of this wild Lakeland location plus the passion of the owners to create beautiful properties for guests to fall in love with. Both are keen fell walkers, have bagged all the “Wainwright’s” and are happy to help plan walking routes with you.

Every booking you make directly with The Wild Hart results in a donation to Nuture Lakeland, a conservation charity committed to caring for the natural environment of Cumbria.
