Just arrived home after our second stay at The Howbeck, where nothing is too much for the fantastic hard working welcoming staff. Breakfast is always exceptional with a wide variety to suit all. We will definitely be back soon and would as always highly recommend The Howbeck to anyone who wishes to stay somewhere with class. Thank you to you... More

We have stayed at the Howbeck fives times now and can't recommend it enough. The staff are always helpful and friendly, food is excellent, rooms are luxurious... More

We booked the retreat for 1 night as a birthday treat and we weren't disappointed. We like to book hotels that have spa baths which this room does. It has a separate entrance and you get to have breakfast in your room at a time of your choice. The room, bathroom and bed were huge and very comfortable. The breakfast... More

Nothing was to much for the staff, they were friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was clean and well presented and the bath was awesome. The meals we had were excellent, very filling, great for larger appetites, fabulous value for your money. The location was really good as you were about 15mins walk away from Lake Windermere.
