Very well appointed lodge with beautiful views. Very comfortable and cosy. We could not find the walk across the fields to Hawkshead so it can be a bit of a precarious walk when its dark, we didnt find torch till last day.

Nice spacious cottage. Clean and well looked after. Bed not too soft so always had a good nights sleep. Area is quiet even if other properties are noisy you dont hear them. Veranda with gate on is good for the safety of any kids or animals staying so they dont fall/escape down the few stairs. Its a 10/15min walk to village but we always took car asRead more felt safer as some people used the local roads as an F1 race track. Plus the weather was a bit off on a few occasions. Hide

A superb lodge with all modern and comfortable furnishings. Sat on the balcony in utter peace enjoying the superb scenery was amazing. Close to Esthwaite where we saw the Ospreys and one one occasion 3 unattached or last year's young flew past while we were fishing. Also very close to Windermere. An amazing stay and certainly destressed.

We have just completed a wonderful week at Sunny Howe. Even the weather was kind to us. The cabin is everything you could ask for from a holiday let. It was very comfortable and spacious, clean and very well equipped. Its position is excellent too - close to footpaths and places of interest. I recommend the Armitt Museum in Ambleside and the RuskinRead more Museum in Coniston but dont forget to buy gingerbread in Grasmere! Hide
