We've just stayed for four night and really appreciated the warm welcome, stunning surroundings and beautiful farmhouse. It would have been hard to ask for more. Lisa is a wonderful host. Nothing is too much trouble. Proper, full English breakfast (although I highly recommend baked eggs as an alternative!) and the option of a very decent evening meal too. You... More

Everything about our stay was perfect. You couldn't ask for better hospitality, views, food or location. I would visit again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend. Beautiful farmhouse and grounds, waking distance to grizedale forest and we were well looked after when we came back soaking wet. Lisa out on a log fire, dried out clothes and provided sherry...

Four of us stayed at Howe Farm in early June and it turned out to be a very good find. The hosts couldn't have been more hospitable. The rooms were clean and comfortable, there was always fresh water in the rooms and in the fridge downstairs. Lisa cooked us some delicious evening meals and worked around our food sensitivities cheerfully.... More

We travelled up to the Lake District from Birmingham for a one-night stay in the Ambleside area and were so pleased to have found this little gem. As we were late arrivals we asked for a platter to be arranged and were completely amazed at the lovely food which was ready for us when we arrived - all served in... More

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
