    Rental Home – 
    4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    Brown Howe Cottage is a spacious, well furnished, detached residence set in the heart of Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons country – a fantastic setting and adventure playground for family holidays, get-togethers, walking and sailing/boating, or a beautiful and peaceful location simply for touring and exploring the Lakes.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We have all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and am sad to leave. The house is very comfy and cosy and the wood burner is delightful on colder nights. We have enjoyed every second! more

Never had any problems with cleaning reported before... more
