  • "The property was clean, well equipped and had a great view from the picture window."

    It is centrally located for the lakes. It was quite cold inside in the evening despite being summer but the heating was switched off. However, a plug in heater was provided which was really appreciated. The only problem we encountered was the location in respect of exactly how steep the walk up from Dove Cottage to the property was. Unless you are really fit and able bodied, it makes walking to and from Grasmere village prohibitive. I feel the property description does not highlight this fact enough. It's not suitable for the less fit or elderly. Perfect for the fit and active and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay but would not return due to the property positioning.

    Thank you for your detailed feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the views! We take all comments on board. Thank you The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Silver Howe, welcomed with a scrumptious treat and tea and coffee supplies, thank you."

    The place was very comfortable and well equipped. The only things we did have a little grumble about was the lack of control with the heating. The radiators seemed to be controlled by an ap, which we didn’t have access to, although a panal heater was supplied. We only used this once or twice as the weather warmed up a bit. And we weren’t really able to use the smart TV as the internet signal was not strong enough to maintain streaming or even use tablets at times. Apart from these two minor things we enjoyed a fabulous holiday and would definitely return here. Many thanks xx

  • "We really enjoyed our first holiday in Silver Howe."

    The accommodation is superb and the view of Grasmere Lake and beyond interrupted our reading time after time. The kitchen is very well equipped and we would have taken the bed and shower home with us if we could! The location is perfect for exploring the local area and beyond. Our bus passes were used time after time as we visited Windermere, Hawkshead and Keswick. Our walk around Grasmere Lake was a highlight. Quite beautiful. Thank you Anne - we hope you will allow us a return visit before too long.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments, I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay and would be delighted to welcome you back very soon. Anne Property Owner

    Really well equipped and comfortable. Great location and view of Grasmere. No need to use the car if you like walking. Walked from the door up Fairfield via Alcock Tarn on a perfect sunny day. Also on the route of my favourite run along the lakes and back along the coffin route. Lesser spotted woodpecker seen in the garden. We hope to return!

  • "An excellent property, warm, cosy and well equipped with private parking space."

    The walk from Grasmere Village is uphill so guests should be prepared for that especially if you’ve just done a long hike on the fells. The Coffin Route walk accessed from the gate in the garden located to the right above the terrace is a lovely walk and Rydal Hall at the Ambleside end has cafe with the best Hot Chocolate. Just a couple of things: the lights over the table don’t work and the shower head holder is loose, (not holding the head up).

    I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay. I appreciate and thank you for flagging up re the dimmer switch and shower head holder. They have now both been rectified. Hope to be able to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

    It is furnished and finished to an incredible high standard, but at the same time still feels comfortable and homely. There is lots of great walking from the door. The only negative for me was the rambling 10 steps from the parking to the apartment as I have mobility problems.

    Extremely comfortable with quality fixtures and fittings. Fantastic view from the main living room window. Excellent location with walks from the door and walk into Grasmere.

    Also it was quite chilly in the mornings and as the heating was operated by Wi fi, we did not know how to put it on. Otherwise lovely apartment with wonderful view and able to watch the birds and red squirrels from the window.

    Such a nice location, a beautiful decorated flat and very clean. We will definitely be booking again. The only slight small feedback I would give on this occasion would be, if it is possible, having an electric fan available in the flat would be amazing (we stayed on a very very warm weather week). All round a wonderful stay.

Offering picturesque views over Grasmere Lake, Silver Howe provides a stylish accommodation for couples to enjoy, yet only being a short walk away from all the amenities of Grasmere.

The apartment is accessed up a path and steps from the car park to the entrance, where you are welcomed into a hallway with room to store boots and coats.

To the right is a fitted kitchen with underfloor heating, complete to a high standard with all the necessary appliances needed to whip up a sumptuous feast, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even a dishwasher so you won’t have to a lift a finger when washing up!

Many of the Lake District’s wonderful attractions may rest within easy reach from the property; a visit packed with excitement and adventure is promised at Bowness-on-Windermere, with its range of excellent activities on offer.

Alternatively, take some time to wander around the delightful streets of Ambleside and Keswick, offering their own Lakeland charm at every corner.

About the location


Ambleside 5 miles; Windermere 9 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

Situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park is the lovely village of Grasmere, probably best known as the home of William Wordsworth, a place he once described as "The most loveliest spot that man hath found". Any visit to Grasmere needs to include The Grasmere Gingerbread shop, where the Wilson family has been making gingerbread for over 60 years. Also in the village are a number of shops, pubs, a church which dates back to the 13th century, and Grasmere Lake. Grasmere Sports takes place every August, where you can watch participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland wrestling. Just five miles away is the town of Ambleside and Lake Winderemere where you will find shops, pubs, restaurants and the 17th century Bridge House, which is one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District. Cruises, boat trips and watersports can all be enjoyed on Lake Windermere, and the towns of Windermere and Keswick are also within driving distance. Grasmere is a wonderful base for your Lake District retreat.
