Offering fabulous accommodation for ten guests, this stunning farmhouse has been beautifully renovated and tastefully decorated, making it a superb base for discovering the north-east Lake District.

Treat your group to a fabulous break in the Cumbrian countryside and choose this special property as the base for your adventures. Elegant, chic and boasting lavish home comforts, this impressive abode sleeps eight and has a real sense of breezy countryside living. Each room has been individually styled with heaps of personality, whether you are crafting delicious meals from local ingredients in the kitchen or preparing to unwind with a glass of wine in the main lounge. On balmy evenings, the garden awaits for al fresco meals, and there is a fire pit for rustic evenings appreciating the mountain air.

Step inside to find a vibrant entrance hall and set your sights on the marvellous kitchen/diner, stowing away muddy boots in the utility room. You’ll have everything you need to rustle up something scrumptious, and whilst you are waiting for your meal to cook you can perch at the central island or on the window seat. There’s a spacious table for sociable feasts, or why not head outside and dine alfresco? The ground floor is also home to the cosy snug and the first of the bedrooms that also boasts an en-suite shower room. Making the most of the views, the lounge is on the first floor and is a sanctuary for family films and evening games. There are three further bedrooms on this level, two of which have en-suites, and there is a superb family bathroom with a sunken bath for an added splash of luxury. Outside and across the courtyard, you’ll discover a separate annexe that can be booked for an additional cost. Inside, there is a ground-floor sitting area and a first-floor bedroom complete with low-sloped ceilings and an en-suite shower room. The large garden is perfect for two hounds to play in until dusk, then it’s time to light the fire pit and toast marshmallows under the stars.

What a house! Absolutely stunning house in beautiful surroundings. We had a great stay at Howgate Foot. Waking up to beautiful views of the countryside and visits from the cows and sheep. The house is well equipped and thought out. Everything in it is of a high quality. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a great stay.

We had a fabulous holiday at Howgate and would definitely return. We wanted peace and quiet and not to be overlooked. The owners should be commended on the design, comfort, attention to detail. Which was all excellent. Everything was just to our taste. All kinds of shopping available at Penrith and milk and petrol at nearby shap. We certainly had hRead moreouse envy! So much so we googled every house for sale in the area. Howgate came up the the old sale history. Wow what a fabulous transformation. Hide
