This light and airy cottage, all on one level, is perfect for couples, friends or a small family looking for a getaway surrounded by fantastic scenery.

All on one level, this cottage is filled with natural light from the picture windows that look out onto its namesake, the Howgill fells. It has an open-plan lounge with kitchen and dining area, and two bedrooms. It's on a non-working farm in the Yorkshire Dales National Park with lots of little footpaths to discover and lanes to explore by bike. With it's own private terrace, as well as a large shared garden, it's the perfect place to relax after a day out exploring this beautiful part of the world.

The pretty village of Ravenstonedale is a mile down the road and has the rare distinction of still having two very good pubs. A few miles beyond is the small town of Kirkby Stephen with its pleasant shops and cafes – it prides itself on being a ‘walkers are welcome’ town and has lots of vibrant, small independent shops.

A favourite place to visit is Stenkrith Park, a native woodland that borders the River Eden with a variety of pathways including a beautiful viaduct walk and a great wild swimming spot at the far end of the park.Your nearest lake is Haweswater, around 30 minutes away, with Ullswater just beyond or Windermere a 45-minute drive.

A ramp leads to the entrance which opens into a hallway with the living area to one side and two bedrooms (a double and a twin) to the other side. The shower room is at the far end.

The sofa and armchairs in the lounge are perfectly positioned to make the most of the view and the most of the cosy electric wood burner. There is TV with DVDand plenty of DVDs to borrow. At the far end of the room is the kitchen area with dining. The kitchen is equipped with electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and plenty of storage space.

Outside is a private terrace with views towards the Howgill fells and also over the large shared garden which has lots of little nooks and crannies, as well as a summer house and a fire pit! Parking is beside the cottage.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages.
