- We've stayed at How Cottage before, as it's ideal for our walking - low and high-level walks from the door, and beautiful scenery. The quiet suits us, although the village's proximity to the river makes it a weekend draw for many, and hence parking can present difficulties, and for ourselves, too, at the cottage if we have more than one car. The two cafes offer ideal and good value walkers' food. We had a down-side this year in that the cottage's cleanliness - mainly in the kitchen - left a lot to be desired, but although that was initially disappointing, the glory of Borrowdale (in heatwave and in rain) more than made up for it!

Hi Andrea, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at How Cottage. Borrowdale is beautiful isn't it? Absolutely stunning! I'm so sorry to hear that the cleaning wasn't up to scratch. If ever it happens again, please let me know so we can arrange for a cleaner to come out and take care of it for you (obviously it shouldn't be like that in the first place but occasionally things do get missed). I've let the owner know too. I'm so pleased it didn't spoil your holiday and I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes very soon.
