Description

Property code: LLH42

Elegant and spacious single-storey property, close to Near Sawrey, set in a four-acres of gardens, with great views of the surroundings.

The village of Near Sawrey is very close to Hill Top, the former home of Beatrix Potter is now open to visitors and offers a wonderful insight into the author’s life. There is also a pub and restaurant in the village, whilst just down the road, the neighbouring village of Far Sawrey is a must see. Lake Windermere is just 2.5 miles away, as is the ferry terminal, from where regular boats run across to the town of Bowness.

This stunning property offers single-storey accommodation sleeping eight guests and is reached via a quiet track lane. On entering the property, guests will come to the welcoming hall, which offers a lounge area with comfortable seating next to the wood burner-effect electric fire. To the left of this space is the spacious kitchen/diner which offers a well-sized dining table and well-equipped kitchen with oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, whilst the washing machine and tumble dryer are located in the nearby utility room. The property’s main lounge has large floor-to-ceiling windows, which flood the room with light, as well as wood burner, comfortable seating, well-stocked bookcase, TV, and DVD. Three of the property’s bedrooms are located in the main house: a double room, a twin room (which can be made up as a king-size on request) and a bunk bedroom. The main bathroom has a shower over the bath and there is also a separate shower room with WC. The fourth bedroom, another twin room, is in a separate summer house. This room benefits from a wet room with shower and WC.

Outside, the property enjoys a stunning four-acres of gardens, with lawn areas, tucked away corners, benches, and a swing. There is also a covered veranda at the front of the property, from where guests can enjoy the stunning views over Esthwaite Water from the provided seating, table, and benches. There is off-road parking for three cars to the side of the house.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

The accommodation was lovely, location was perfect with amazing views across the lake. The cottage was adequately equipped with great supply of fuel for wood burner. It was great to have utility room a good dog cleaning room. Also a great supply of piping hot water. Beds were really comfortable. Gardens lovely. A lovely comfortable property. Looking forward to our next holiday.

It’s remote, which means a drive to towns, or long walks. It’s a very narrow road leading up to the house an even more narrow and steep driveway. Views are simply stunning and although great for all ages, I’d say probably best for those relaxing, wanting decent walks and to relax on the veranda and get away from the rush of life.

We absolutely loved the house and the stunning views across the lake. We loved our evenings in that cosy room in front of the wood burner The kitchen was a good size and great to have the utility room beyond for the dog and the dirty boots / washing! Also the house was lovely and warm and there was always plenty of hot water.

Broad Howe is a wonderful family home with astounding and unrivalled views over Esthwaite Water. It's half way up a hill with access via a private track. Heated throughout with silent and tastefully selected electric radiators. We managed to extend our stay by a few days as we enjoyed it so much. I have many beautiful photos of the scenery. Even in bad weather the views are lovely, nestled next to the log fire and watching it through the large floor-to-ceiling windows.

Fabulous property. Very comfortable with the most fantastic view. Great location for exploring the southern lakes. Exceptionally well equipped. Very tricky 5 (at a minimum) point turn to get in and out of the drive

Broad Howe is the perfect place for a Lakeland Holiday with beautiful view and walks straight out on the fell, Esthwaite below and many famous peaks in view and easily reached. It happens to have half the rainfall of Ambleside, which has half the rain fall of Buttermere.

We have visited Broad Howe for 30 years. It is very homely and has fantastic views. the heating and addition of bedding and towels has made it even more comfortable.

Great property, fantastic views of the lake and surrounding countryside, only downside the track leading to the property and the five point turn required to turn into the "drive".

Wonderful location with stunning views. Cottage was very comfortable, clean with a good selection of equipment. Absolutely ideal for our family, 6 adults, 2 children and a dog. Will definitely return again. Weather superb, but even if it is not there is still the covered verandas to sit out in the evenings enjoying the scenery.

It is in the most fantastic location. The views were stunning, lots of birds to the feeders including spotted woodpecker and nuthatches. Very comfortable and relaxing. Drive way is a little challenging.

We had the most wonderful holiday at Broad Howe in January but the weather was mild even sunny no snow or ice at all. The house is very comfortable and full of interesting pictures diaries books and very much a loved family home. The views and peace and quiet are amazing in this day and age so unspoiled. The house is well equipped and the studio is a definite bonus.

We stayed at Broad Howe in spring last year and just had to return to this very special place this autumn. It is spacious and has a lovely homely feel (its library, collections of old family photographs and writings from the 1940s etc). It is peaceful and you can walk straight onto the hills, with the Langdales and other peaks in the middle distance. The garden and surroundings are magical. The mist over the valley one morning was special - and too, the early morning sun on the east facing side of the valley. Sunset was gorgeous as we sat with drinks on the sheltered veranda. The private lane to the house is ideal if you want a quick 'constitutional' any time. We were sad to leave Broad Howe, and videoed our last walk up the lane before the trek home. Sigh!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Broad Howe. Fantastic location just up the road from Hill Top and wonderful views making Broad Howe feel unique and in the heart of the countryside. The cottage itself was very well equipped and it was easy to settle in with ease given its lived in environment. We'll definitely be back.

This was our fourth stay at Broad Howe. It has become a bit of a tradition to get together for our annual family holiday at this lovely place. This year we had four generations from nearly 2 to 85 years. The views are utterly sublime. The location is fantastic - walks from the doorstep, lots to do within a short drive, yet peaceful and quiet. It is a great place to relax and recharge your batteries. It is probably fair to say that it may not necessarily suit everyone. It is comfortable, but not super deluxe luxury and getting up the driveway can be a bit of a challenge, but as far was we are concerned it is just about perfect.

I have visited Broad Howe since I was 2 in 1931 when my grandparents lived there. During the war I lived there with my cousins. Then my parents retired there and I was married from there. For ten years I and my brother looked after it. So it is my beloved home when I go back.
