Bed and Breakfast Description


Dating back to 1698 Howe farm is a traditional stone built Lakeland farmhouse, tastefully decorated with many original features, including oak paneling, staircase, doors, beams and log fires. Howe Farm offers traditional bed and breakfast holiday accommodation in the Lake District.

Your hosts Lisa and Michael invite you to stay at Howe Farm, Hawkshead at the heart of the English Lake District for the most complete Lakeland Experience.

There truly is something for everyone based at Howe Farm. As you rise in the morning you are greeted by the sights and sounds of a genuine livestock farm.

Delightful views are evident across open farm fields towards Esthwaite Water from their beautifully appointed family and double bedrooms, where tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryer and towels are apparent.

Allow Lisa to conjure a tantilising breakfast using home grown and local produce and serve in your private dining room amid Oak beams and original features, to really set you up for the day.


Hawkshead Attractions

To slip into the pace of life over this traditionally peaceful side of Lake Windermere, take a five-minute stroll into the picturesque village of Hawkshead where Wordsworth spent his schooldays. Perhaps walk two miles further to Near Sawrey, home of 'Hill Top' where Beatrix Potter wrote her children's stories.

In the other direction towards Newby Bridge, twenty minutes walk from Howe farm is a trout farm on the banks of Esthwaite water and Grizedale forest has many comfortable woodland and low lying fell walks as well as an excellent children's playground.

Try a touch of Edwardian elegance with a cruise on Coniston water just four miles from the farm, aboard the steam yacht 'Gondola'.

For the energetic, Mountain bikes can be hired in the forest and well marked routes can be followed from the visitor center. Ambleside, five miles north at the head of Lake Windermere is a center of excellence for climbing, fell walking and water sports at Waterhead and Low Wood.

To carry on from Near Sawrey to Far Sawrey puts you in touch with Bowness on Windermere the Lakes liveliest resort. However its comforting to know just three miles away via the ferry. Howe Farm awaits for your return to peace and tranquility.

To eat out in this part of England is an absolute joy. In recent years chefs from fashionable city restaurants throughout Europe have complimented the local produce with there unique talents producing a truly irresistible combination at the keenest price.
