An excellent find in Braithwaite village.Views from here absolutely amazing! Very warm and friendly welcome from Linda and Tony. Room very comfortable and lovely furnishings. Owners very helpful, and very high standards. Made us feel at home from the start, and had time to chat to guests the whole visit, very accommodating.

Breakfast room so lovely, views all round such a beautiful spot. No hesitation on planning a return visit later in the year.A very enjoyable stay. Also have two lovely horses, very used to people.

Room Tip: Lovely touches to the room, very clean and comfortable. Also added attraction of the hot tub in the...

We stayed for two nights, 19 & 20 May and from the moment we arrived Linda was friendly and very welcoming. Our room was lovely, clean and comfortable and afforded superb views over Siddow. As did the breakfast room. When we could take our eyes off the view, we enjoyed excellent breakfasts. This is a b&b not to be missed. The standards are very high, and Linda made our stay a superb experience. We will definitely be back when next in the area. It was just too bad that because of the weather we couldn't use the hot tub!

Room Tip: There are two rooms, both with fantastic views.

A solo visit this time as sadly I had to leave my wife in a care home while I enjoyed a well earned respite break. I spent three nights at Howe View during my two week break knowing from a previous visit that I would receive a warm welcome. The elevated position affords views over the wonderful scenery surrounding the property. Situated at one end of the Whinlatter pass and close to the Newland Valley and a short drive from Keswick it is in an ideal position. A short distance along Whinlatter there is an excellent activity centre where you can also hire cycles and enjoy light snacks while watching the many birds on the feeders. Linda once again made me lovely breakfasts setting me up for the day. The local pub provides excellent meals which I could not quite finish because of the size of the proportions.

Our 2 night stay at Howe View had been a wedding present from our friends, and boy was it an amazing present. The house is gorgeous and the room tops any hotel I've stayed in before, roomy, tasteful, cleaner than my house and quiet. The views are amazing, and a wonderful distraction when eating your breakfast. Linda is an amazing cook and both Linda and Tony are very friendly, with great recommendations for trips and places to visit. We felt very at home and comfortable, we will definitely be returning as we have to try the hot tub out in better weather.

Very friendly, homely (in a nice way) B & B. Good amount of space, wonderful views at breakfast and from the room through the skylite... Breakfast was fantastic and we tended to linger to look at the view. Ellie the dog kept us company and Linda and Tony made us feel very welcome. Will definately visit again...

My wife and I chose Howe View for the last 2 days of our holiday in the Keswick area. What an excellent B&B. We had a clean, attractive and comfortable room with views of Skiddaw and the Newlands Valley. We have stayed in many hotels / B&Bs etc, but we have not had a better breakfast anywhere. And the breakfast room has lovely views too. Because we were made to feel so welcome we felt sad leaving, and we hope to return later in the year ( in warmer weather to use the hot tub ). We will recommend Howe View to our friends.
