    “What a magical place to spend Christmas!”

    The cottage was so cosy and well equipped. Kate and Rich were lovely hosts- made us feel truly welcomed. ...

    The cottage was so cosy and well equipped. Kate and Rich were lovely hosts- made us feel truly welcomed. This was a fantastic dog friendly place that provided bowls and towels to wash and dry dirty paws as well as dog food bowls and doggy treats. Safe enclosed area and fabulous walks from the cottage gate-Murphy loved it!!! It was in a stunning area- secluded but only a few minutes walk from the little village and a short drive from shops and the Lakes. Fantastic to walk round festive Keswick and Ambleside. Drove to Haweswater and managed a wee hike up the pass on Christmas Eve- absolutely awesome views! Definitely recommend Howes Beck Cottage for a proper dog friendly break.

The property

A unique barn conversion resting in the fells above the cosy village of Bampton within the Lake District National Park, ideally placed for taking in all that the destination has to offer.

Suited for couples, friends and families Howes Beck Cottage is a delightful retreat, your peaceful escape from the demands of daily life.

Situated across the ground floor, you will discover a collection of rooms, commencing with a lovely kitchen/diner with comfortable seating for four people, and a stylish colour scheme.

Views over the fells add to the charming overtone.

Next door, the sitting room is modern and attractive, including leather sofas, exposed beams and original features, all tied together with a wood burning stove.

There is a recently modernised family bathroom benefiting from a bath with a separate shower, and two bedrooms presented in a quality fashion.

To the outside is an enclosed space with access to secure storage for bikes or other equipment and a seating area which encapsulates stunning views across the valley to Knipe Scar where you can relax after the days exploring with the only sound being from the birds and the nearby beck that cascades to the village below.

The Cottage is immediately surrounded by 6,890 acres of common land, the home of a variety of wildlife, with sheep, fell ponies and red squirrels visiting the cottage almost daily.

There are wonderful walks and cycle routes right from the door, including on the surrounding fells leading over to Haweswater and Ullswater, with excellent high level walking for the more adventurous, many of the Lake District's walks have their starting point from around Ullswater, including the renowned trek to Helvellyn's summit via Striding Edge, and more gentle footpaths, bridleways and quiet scenic roads for those just looking for more light activities in beautiful countryside.

The attractive hamlet of Bampton situated in the Lowther Valley is a traditional Lakeland village away from the hustle and bustle of the busier central Lake District towns and villages, but with all the popular and much-loved tourist destinations close at hand.

This is a tranquil, unspoiled and beautiful area of the Lake District: perfect for getting away from it all and for seeing wildlife.

However, the location is still also convenient for accessing not only other parts of the Lake District, but also the Yorkshire Dales, Pennines and Hadrian’s Wall.

Bampton has a village store/Post Office with tea room, children’s playground and a pub a gentle stroll away in the neighboring hamlet of Bampton Grange.

For those who want to venture further afield by car, Askham and Pooley Bridge are only a short drive away with a traditional village inns, cafes and shops.

Sharrow Bay Hotel is also a short drive away for the ultimate in dining and is renowned the world over; or a trip over Kirkstone Pass brings you into Ambleside where there is an abundance of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Howes Beck Cottage is an ideal base for a cottage holiday stay in the stunning Lake District.

Keswick 17 miles; Carlisle 20 miles.

The bustling market town of Penrith, once the capital of Cumbria, enjoys a central position between the Lake District and North Pennines and is ideally placed for taking in all that the region has to offer. Renowned for its wealth of specialist shops, the sandstone buildings of Penrith hide intriguing yards, lanes and alleyways, with a myriad of attractive cottages, gardens and little shops. With a wide choice of excellent pubs, hotels, restaurants and entertainment, Penrith also offers a museum, and Millennium Trails round the historic city streets. Within easy reach of the town is Rheged – an innovative visitor centre with shops, restaurants, exhibitions and a giant cinema screen showing educational and informative films.
