What an incredible property. Set in very peaceful surroundings with fabulous 360 degree views. Wonderful comfortable beds, plenty of hot water and lots of space. The property is well located for Keswick and the local pub is just a 1 mile stroll where the food is delicious and dogs are allowed too. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are... More

My friends and I recently stayed at Howe Top. The stay was incredible and is definitely one that I will be recommending to anyone planning on a holiday in that area. The location was perfect, very close to Penrith and Keswick but also far enough away to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and beautiful scenery. We were given a lot of... More

I visited Near Howe in the first week in June for the first time. Unfortunately, Steve & Jill were in Majorca but they left Lynn responsible for overseeing the farm and she couldn't have been more helpful. Howe End cottage was spotless when I arrived and very comfortable. The layout was ideal with a kitchen/diner & lounge. I travelled with... More

My family and I stayed here on 03.06.2016 for two nights. The accommodation, surroundings, other facilities and Steve and Jill were awesome. Kids played with Steve's dog while we chilled. On our way there we would be caught up in traffic so Steve came to collect us via back routes from the M6, what a gent. Thank you.

We (3 adults) stayed in Grisdale View for 3nights. The accommodation was ideal for our needs; 2 bedrooms, kitchen / living area and bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped enabling us to be self sufficient; enough comfy seating in the lounge area ~ essential following a days walking! The cottage and external areas were spotlessly clean and well maintained by... More

We stayed for two nights and had a great time. The cottage was perfect, the views were great and the location is ideal for getting out into the hills. The cottage was so cosy however that we struggled to tear ourselves away! Highly recommended!

Excellent location with superb views. Our cottage was simple, spotlessly clean and dog friendly. A good choice of local pubs for food with plenty of information available in the cottage. Would have given it 5 star except that when we arrived after 5.00pm in February, no heating had been put on which left us on the cold side until the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Near Howe offers superb farmhouse bed and breakfast accommodation, together with five high-quality self-catering cottages, providing the ideal away-from-it-all break. The perfect place to escape to! The farmhouse and cottages stand amid 380 acres of classic Lakeland scenery, in an elevated position close to the small village of Mungrisdale, giving us glorious views out over some of the most impressive countryside in the Cumbrian fells. ... more   less
