Near Howe occupies a stunning elevated position on a tree lined knoll, giving it glorious views out over arguably some of the most delightful countryside in the Lake District National Park. Originally built as a farmstead about 180 years ago, Near Howe remained the farmhouse to the surrounding farmland until the end of the 1960's when it was converted to a guest house.

Over the ensuing years, the former farm buildings which surrounded the delightful open courtyard, have been skilfully converted to form 7 spacious and uniquely appointed self-catering cottages, which retain much of their original charm and character. Set amid carefully landscaped, yet easily maintained gardens and grounds, there is ample car parking and space for visitors to relax in a setting second to none for its peace and tranquillity.

Near Howe lies at the end of a delightful driveway across rolling Cumbrian farmland, but is within very easy reach of the A66, midway between the lovely Cumbrian market town of Penrith and Keswick-on-Derwentwater, The Queen of the Lakes. Equally close at hand is Ullswater, topped and tailed by Pooley Bridge at the North and Glenridding to the south while in the opposite direction lies the picturesque village of Mungrisdale and further at 'Back o'Skidda' is Caldbeck, the former home of famous huntsman John Peel. All of this delightful countryside helps bring tourists to the area over an ever increasing season.

The surrounding area can provide many activities and pastimes, including golf, fishing, pony trekking, boating and walking, from the gentlest of rambles to the most strenuous of fell walks. For the not so energetic, Near Howe is the ideal base from which to tour the magnificent Cumbrian countryside and enjoy the scenic beauty of our lovely Lakeland.

You will have the run of the large, well-tended garden with a number of different seating areas for guests to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

There is one large laundry, in which you have the use of the washing machine and tumble dryer which are coin operated.

    “Walking and relaxation ”

    I booked Near Howe on the Internet from Australia and Near Howe was everything it stated to be. It was very tranquil, yet the accommodation had all the facilities we needed. The staff were very helpful. We stayed in the stable barn, the beds were comfortable and warm and the kitchen was well equipped, and we had lovely views. We were two couples and there was plenty of space for the four of us. The property is away from the crowds, yet easy driving distance to sights. I would gladly stay at Near Howe again.
