My wife and I stayed at Sharp Edge for two weeks in July and loved every minute of it. A warm and friendly welcome on our arrival made us feel at home straight away and the standard of the flat was excellent, very comfortable. There was superb hill walking and views only minutes away from this quiet and peaceful location... More

When we travel we always stay in self catering apartments. We shop and cook as if we were at home. Therefore a fully equipped kitchen is of prime importance. The only item that my husband would have liked would be a four cup drip coffee maker. To be fair we found this in only one of the seven accommodations we... More

Whilst respecting your point of view, I would have appreciated you mentioning the smell of oil whilst staying with us, thus giving us the opportunity to rectify the problem. For your information I have arranged for our heating engineer to look into the problem. With reference to towels, it’s clearly set out in all our correspondence that towels are available... More

We stayed in the Sharp Edge property for the second time having stayed at Near Howe on several other occasions. Sharp Edge offers spacious accommodation on the upper floor whilst the stairs are not too steep. The quality of the property is very high and the views superb. The location of Near Howe is so peaceful and the scenery stunning... More

Highly recommend. Visited with two daughters and dog and we all had a great time. Ordered an online sainsbury's shop which actually arrived albeit we were in the middle of nowhere! Will be back. The dog settled down immediately and loved the field for running in. It was an effortless break and much appreciated.

I stayed at Grisdale View with my family and our dog and had a fantastic stay. The cottage is very well equipped with anything you might need and it is well decorated. The location is fantastic as it is close to Keswick and Penrith but it is in a quiet isolated spot which it is very relaxing. It was perfect... More

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
