    Property description
    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.
    Brown Howe was once part of the Duke of Buccleuch’s summer estate set on the banks of Coniston Water. The cottage is set in a courtyard with private patio and is surrounded by mature woodland with a wealth of wildlife.

    The cottage is 8 km from Coniston, a small but busy typical Lakeland town and just 2 km from Torver, where there are 2 pubs. Popular tourist centres such as Ambleside, Grasmere and Hawkshead are about half an hour away by car. The house and ground...

Firstly I should state that the family thoroughly enjoyed their holiday,including their stay in the cottage.There were a few points it's worth raising for future users of the property however. The main point is around the fridges.At first glance two large fridgefreezers was more than we expected.The largest however does not work,resulting in quite a large amount of food having... more

Management response:

Guests did not say food had been ruined but eaten quicker than expected as one of freezers was not cooling sufficiently. It has now been removed and a brand new Siemens fridge freezer installed. Never had any problems with cleaning reported before... more
