Had a fantastic stay at Howe Farm despite it being a very wet week in February! A lovely house full of charming features and stunning views (even with the storm clouds!). Very comfy beds, cosy lounge with wood burner and a big dining table ideal for board games meant we had all we needed for a relaxing winter break. But also a great base for exploring the South Lakes, loads to do in easy reach and just a short drive into Kendal which has all you need. Sally’s cottages were very accessible and helpful when we needed to be in contact, thanks for a great stay.

Hi Amelia, I am so delighted to hear that you had such a fantastic stay at Howe Farm. It really is a stunning location, isn't it? And those views truly are stunning whatever the weather! Come back and see us again soon!

A brilliant Farmhouse in a wonderfully peaceful location, somewhere to get away from it all. It was a place that felt like home. We had a great few days, a good location for walking, there are some fantastic views of the whole range of the fells if you walk up through the woods behind Howe Farm and out on to the tops. Also not too far to drive in to the central Lake District.

Hello Mark, Thank you for your lovely feedback. It's a real home from home isn't it? You picked the perfect location to escape the hustle and bustle for a while and to get out and about on some great walks. I'm thrilled you had a really great stay and I hope you will plan a return visit to the Lakes very soon!

Had the best week at Howe Farm and would love to visit again, cottage is beautiful, completely out of the way from all the hussle and bustle, oodles of character, really comfy beds but was let down massively by the cleanliness of the cottage. Floors hadn’t been swept, kitchen sides weren’t properly wiped down, bath had to be rinsed out before using, sofas are in bad need of updating etc. Have made Sally’s cottages aware who have assured me they are looking into it... The lanes up to the cottage are extremely narrow, we do have quite a wide car but they are not for the faint hearted. Added to the magic of the cottage though. Will 100% be staying again just hope Sally’s do take note of the cleanliness issues as otherwise this cottage would be a 10/10.
