Description

Near Howe Cottages occupy a stunning elevated position on a tree lined knoll, giving glorious views over some of the most delightful countryside in the Lake District National Park. Originally built as a farmstead about 180 years ago, Near Howe Cottages remained the farmhouse to the surrounding farmland until the end of the 1960s 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 seven spacious and uniquely appointed self-catering holiday cottages, each retaining much of their original charm and character.
Howe End has been thoughtfully designed with stunning views down to Mungrisdale and Caldbeck Fells. It is beautifully converted from an old stable block and has been furnished to a very good standard.
Set amid carefully landscaped gardens and grounds, there is ample 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 easy reach of the A66, between the lovely Cumbrian market towns of Penrith and Keswick. Equally close at hand is Ullswater, with 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 the famous huntsman John Peel.
The surrounding area provides 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 lovely Lakeland. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
Howe End (ref UK1165) can be booked together with Howe Top (ref UK1164), Grisedale View (ref UK1163), Bannerdale (ref UK1162), Stable Barn (ref UK1161), Saddleback Barn (ref UK1160) and Sharp Edge (ref UK1166) to accommodate up to 30 guests.

About the local area

Ullswater is the Lake District's second largest lake at nine miles long. Located in the eastern side of Cumbria, it bends and twists its way through dramatic mountain scenery on one side and a gently curving shoreline of green fields and woodland on the other.

Boating centres and marinas nestle unobtrusively on the lake edge, perfect for the water sports enthusiasts, or visitors can relax and enjoy the scenery from one of the steamers that have sailed the lake since 1855.

Many of the Lake District's many walks have their starting point from around Ullswater, including the renowned trek to Helvellyn's summit via Striding Edge. Or for the less energetic there are many low-level walks through beautiful countryside.

Of note is Glenridding which sits on the south western shore and is surrounded by the fells with wonderful scenic views. Pooley Bridge on the northern shore, with its 16th Century Bridge, Lakeland greystone houses and quaint teashops and Patterdale just to the south of Ullswater, cradled by mountains.
