Howgill is a fantastic spot - all on one level, it's 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.
