Just returned from Howbeck Lodge. We have had a brilliant time despite the mixed weather. Farmer John is an outstanding host, nothing was too much trouble and we were treated to a trip on the quad bike to see a new born calf. Our daughters loved spending time with the rabbits and we are planning to return with friends in... More

This was a special surprise treat for our hardworking and dedicated childcare team, none of who are campers and panic at the thought of no hot water or electricity. However on arrival it was clear our twenty fussy ladies were captivated by the beauty of the tents and the animals that live on the farm. The event was truly amazing,... More

We stopped at Howbeck Lodge for a tour of the farm and lunch. We were taken to each and every paddock , told the information about the animals and the roll in the working farm. The area for the farm stays looked great fun for a family holiday. Our lunch was amazing, we were served at the table with a... More

Wow, what an amazing holiday we had at Howbeck Lodge, it really is just perfect. Jon & Christine are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them. It really is children heaven, from the cupboard bed which kept my 2 girls snug as a bug at night to all the animals that the children can interact with. The... More

We had a week here in early August and had a great time. The tents and accommodation are top notch, with really comfortable beds, great kitchen facilities, and an excellent living area. The hosts are super welcoming, hosting a pizza night cooked in a wood fire pizza oven. I thoroughly recommend taking advantage of their home cooking for which they... More

Fabulous location for us city dwellers - total relaxation on a wonderful farm with so much to do - you felt so relaxed the minute you parked the car and picked up your wheel barrow to transport your belongings to the tent. tent...

We'd been looking forward to this since we read some of these reviews and booked and weren't disappointed in the slightest. Farmer John, as James (3 yrs) called him, gave us a tour and we got straight to unwinding and exploring the Farm. From collecting eggs in the morning, saying hello to the moo cows and chatting to the llamas... More

We had a fantastic long weekend at Howbeck Lodge. The smile on our 2 1/2 year old throughout the weekend was enough to ensure that we will be back again to this fantastic place in the future. He loved his cupboard bed and his peeking out of the holes to watch us kept us entertained :) The stream at the... More

This was our 4th visit in 3 years to the Farm. John and Christine are so welcoming and you feel relaxed from the minute you park the car and stroll down to the tent. Our 2 boys (aged 8 and 6) love this place. They explore and feed the animals for hours on end. The environment is safe for children... More
