We wanted a B&B near Grizedale for a Saturday night but most accommodation providers in the area require a minimum of two nights at the weekend. Howe Farm is in an idyllic setting, very quiet but lovely and friendly with owners who cannot do enough for their guests. This is a hidden gem tucked away just outside Hawkshead but within... More

We stayed in Shepherds Cottage for the week and loved it! The place was spotless and all the lovely personal touches showed how much the owners care. Very friendly people who make you feel relaxed and comfortable. The walk into Hawkshead is short and very manageable. The only thing I struggled with was how soft the double bed was -... More

I so enjoyed my stay at Howe Farm Bed and Breakfast. The house is so lovely and set on a real working farm just outside of Hawkshead. The room I had was so comfortable with a big warm comforter and crisp clean sheets and thick pillows on a great bed. At the end of the bed was a window that... More

Stayed here for 1 night and from the moment we parked up until we left we felt ultra relaxed. Greeted warmly and served fresh coffee we took advantage of the wonderful location and enjoyed the view from the front door. Comfy beds, soft pillows, huge fluffy towels, lots of hot water, well equipped rooms and delicious food meant that every... More

We had a fantastic stay at Shepards Cottage for our first family holiday with our 6 month old baby. The cottage was nicely decorated, well equipped and very clean. The location was great for touring the South Lakes and views from the cottage were outstanding. We loved the addition of the hot tub which was a great way to wind... More

We visited Shepherds Cottage Howe Farm from 5th September - 12th September 2015, and had a delightful week their. There is plenty to do in the surrounding areas & the hosts were very welcoming. Being on a working farm all adds to the enjoyment of the cottage with the hot tub being a relaxing retreat at the end of a... More

It has been 6 years since we last visited Shepherd's Cottage. Some things have changed, but the important things haven't. The warmth of the welcome from Lisa & Mike, the cosiness of the cottage and the charming, ever-changing views across Esthwaite Water. The neighbours - cattle in one field and sheep to the front - still provide a daily story... More

I stayed in a lot of Bed and Breakfasts on my recent trip to the UK but this was my favourite place. Lisa is an excellent host and we felt instantly at home: the farm exudes a welcoming air and the rooms are super comfortable. The breakfasts are terrific and there is a traffic-free path into Hawkshead itself which makes... More

We stayed here for one night but wish it could have been more. The location was amazing in the heart of the Lake District away from the tourist areas. The views were incredible. The property is also located in easy walking distance to hawkshead which is a stunning village. We were greeted with tea and cake which we had in... More
