We have just returned from a week's stay at Little Crake House, what a shame we could not have stayed for longer, we were all sad to leave. The cottage is beautiful, it is well furnished with quality items right through, the bed's are so comfortable we would have liked to have brought them home, the photo's really do not do it justice, go & stay & you will know what I mean. The views are outstanding, there is plenty of parking & a lovely garden. It is well placed to visit the Lakes & also the Yorkshire Dales. John & Hazel are very friendly & there were some lovely goodies to welcome us when we arrived. Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful cottage, we will be back.

Little Crake Howe is the GREATEST
Little Crake Howe is perfect! The location, the quality the welcome all of them outdo your expectations! The website does not do justice! From the moment you arrive you feel at home, this cottage is a paradise for relaxation but is just the right distance from nearby Kendal for entertainment! We ate in, we ate out it was great! I will be going back as soon as possible!!!!!

A lovely home away from home. The whole accommodation was even better than we expected. It is a great place to stay if you have children, we loved the large enclosed garden. We'd definitely stay here again.
Mr Elder

This cottage is beautiful in a great location with stunning scenery. It was spotless on arrival and was equipped with everything you could possibly need. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Its location is perfect for exploring both the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales. We can't fault it!
Mr Penfold

The cottage was beautifully decorated to a very high standard. It was great it rained so much as we had an excuse to stay in rather than go out! Cannot praise the cottage enough.
