We stayed in the beautiful Saddleback Barn for a week as part of a family holiday combined with our friends getting married in Glenridding and it was absolutely perfect for our stay in the Lakes with our 1 year old daughter and all four of her grandparents as well as ourselves (7 adults plus baby in total). Firstly, the accommodation... More

Thanks for such a lovely review. It was a real pleasure to welcome so many guests for Paul and Katie's wedding, and you couldn't have asked for a better day. I'm sure Wordsworth would have loved it too with the daffodils in full bloom! We look forward to welcoming you back! More

We stayed in 'Sharp Edge' - a one bedroom self catering apartment which forms part of the complex of holiday cottages at Near Howe. As veteran Lake District holidaymakers, we would recommend both Sharp Edge, and the cottages as a whole, unreservedly. We were met by Gill (and a very friendly dog Tia) on arrival, and shown to our immaculately... More

So glad you enjoyed the peace and tranquility on offer here at Near Howe. Sharp Edge is always a hit with couples, lying in the bath with a view of Blencathra is a real bonus! Looking forward to welcoming you back again soon. More

We stayed firstly in howe end which was a two bedroom small cottage. We were in the lakes for a wedding at Glenridding and we stayed in Howe end with our 11 month old daughter and our friends and their baby of the same age. The cottage had everything we needed, one bathroom and a small kitchen/living room area. We... More

just got back from a short break here and we were both impressed. Steve and Jill welcomed us and were very friendly. The cottage we stayed in was sharp edge and it was really good. It was done to a high standard and it had everything you need. The views were fantastic and the location was perfect as it's not... More

We have just spent a weekend at Near Howe staying in the one bedroom apartment Sharp Edge. Everything is in the apartment that you require for a weekend away, the kitchen is very well stocked. The bed is so comfortable with nice curtains certainly stopping the morning sun from disturbing your sleep. They are very clean with no trace of... More

Repeat visitors make up a high percentage of our guests, and we always enjoy making their stay special.

Very late in booking and we were taking a dog so the options were very small, otherwise it would have been vey low on our list. The accommodation was ok but nothing exceptional. Too far away from anything, ie pubs and shops. Our first day we did walk to the next village but definitely would not do it in the... More

We four adults stayed in Grisdale View self catering cottages for a short stay in June. The accommodations are adequate but not fancy. It was very comfortable, but the things that made our stay seem so fantastic were the great views in the area and the extremely gracious hostess. We were guided to very pleasant pubs to eat.

We stayed at Bannerdale in July 2014 for a short break. Near Howe is a great spot for reaching lots of areas in the Lakes. Blencathra is right on the doorstep. Ullswater and Derwent water are easy to get to and we took our canoe on both. It's really easy to get to Patterdale and Borrowdale. The apartment is really... More
