Beautiful location and stunning views, although quite tricky to get up the drive, especially in a large vehicle! Cottage is a good size, easily accommodating 8 people. Note that if you stay in the annex you do need to go outside to get to the shower room/toilet. It is covered so not too bad in dry summer weather, but possibly a challenge in the midRead moredle of the night in winter! The outside veranda is lovely and enabled us to sit outside, even when it was raining. Hide

Broad Howe has the finest view in the Lake District - Esthwaite Water surrounded by fields in the foregound, mountains from Coniston Old Man to the Langdale Pikes distant. It is flexible, sleeping 6 in the house and two in the Summer House with access to its own shower/wc. There are many walks starting from the house and swimming in Moss Eccles TarRead moren or the lake. It is accessed by a lane leading to the fells, has its own garden and wood - no near neighbours, bungalow built about1904 modernised. Hide

We were very happy staying in this lovely house. The view is breathtaking! The beds were comfortable, there was plenty of kitchen equipment and we had everything we needed.

We still love the character of this property and were pleased to see all the photo albums and visitor books were back. We never tire of the lovely view and enjoy the local walks on the door step. We have been returning every year for approximately 10 years and it feels like our own holiday home as we know it so well.

Broad Howe was an amazing place the stay, the property itself was quite quirky and perhaps need a bit of modernising but the location and especially the view far outweighs any negatives - we would certainly go back again given the opportunity.

What a lovely cottage. We loved it. Everything you need for a break away. Garden not totally enclosed, but our dogs were fine. Loved the peace and the views are spectacular. The weather wasn't great, but we kept cosy in the cottage. .Great to have a utility room where we could store dogs things and other items out of the way. We didnt use the gardeRead moren house, but would be ideal for older children to have their own space. WiFi good and we took chrome stick so we could get Netflix etc on the tv. Hide
