General Description

Nestled in the peaceful rural hamlet of Knipe, just 3 miles from the picturesque Lowther Estate village of Askham, sits Howgate Foot. If you're looking for a beautiful place to get together with family and friends then this wonderful Lakeland farmhouse could be just what you're looking for. Sleeping up to 10 people in total, Howgate Foot is also happy to welcome 2 well behaved dogs but we do ask that they are kept downstairs.

The bright spacious entrance hall leads through to the stunning dining kitchen, the real heart of this home from home. The fabulous kitchen is bright, airy and well equipped with everything you could need for a self catering holiday. In here you'll find a large Smeg fridge-freezer, mimcrowave, range cooker with unduction hob, dishwasher and a beautiful dining table which seats 10 in comfort. A useful utility room off the kitchen houses the washing machine and tumble dryer, should you need to make use of these during your stay. It's also the ideal place to leave wet coats and boots muddy from all your adventures.

A cosy and stylish snug is the perfect place to snuggle up and relax. Unwind with a good book, compare notes on the day's events or sit back and watch some television, there is a smart TV with Netflix available (remember your own log ins). On the ground floor you'll also find a charming twin bedroom (which can be made up as a super-kind on request), complete with its own en-suite shower room (WC, washbasin and shower cubicle). There's also a handy extra WC downstairs too.

Up on the first floor are 3 beautiful bedrooms. First up is a king size bedroom, decorated in calming blues and with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. This bedroom has its own en-suite shower room with a WC, wasbasin and shower cubicle. A second king size bedroom is decorated in delightful green tones. Again, there are beautiful views so why not indulge in a long lie in and enjoy your morning cuppa from the bed, you are on holiday after all. This bedroom has a fabulous en-suite bathroom complete with WC, washbasin, separate shower and luxurious roll top bath, also with countryside views! Last but by no means least is the delightful twin room. Another fantastic bedroom, this room can also be made up as a superking upon request.

At the end of the landing you'll find the fabulous first floor living room. Calm and luxurious, with a vaulted ceiling and wonderful views over the garden and surrounding countryside, it really is a beautiful space to relax in. There's a TV for entertainment, or simply enjoy a peaceful moment in beautiful surroundings.

Also on the first floor is the wonderful family bathroom. As well as the expected WC and washbasin, there's a separate shower enclosure and feature sunken bath - perfect whether you prefer an invigorating shower or a relaxing soak in the tub.

Outside is just as delightful as inside this wonderful farmhouse.

Across the courtyard from the main farmhouse is The Annex; once a barn, it’s now where you’ll find the 5th bedroom. On the ground floor of The Annex is a charming sitting area, prefect for catching up with a good book. Upstairs on the first floor of The Annex is a cosy king size bedroom with its own en-suite shower room. As you might imagine from a former barn, the accommodation in here is quirky and full of character with a sloping ceiling upstairs - tall members of the group will need to watch their heads. (Please note, there is an additional charge to book The Annex.)

The large enclosed garden wraps around the sides and rear of the property, meaning there’s plenty of space for everyone to make the most of their time out here. Children will love running around out here and off the kitchen is a generous patio area; with garden furniture, a firepit and delightful views over the surrounding countryside, it’s the perfect place for dining al fresco with a beautiful backdrop.

Within the 5-bar gates, there’s ample parking for 3 or 4 cars in the courtyard in front of the farmhouse. If you do need more space, you can also park a car outside of the gates but please be careful not to block access for other vehicles including farm traffic. There's also plenty of space to store bikes under the car port (please remember your own bike locks) if you prefer getting out and about and exploring on 2 wheels.

With all this on offer, Howgate Foot is certainly not one to be missed.
