This charming cottage is in Whinfell, on the edge of the Lake District and can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Crook Howe Cottage is a property located within two acres of private grounds adjacent to Whinfell Tarn on the edge of the Lake District. The home sleeps four in its two bedrooms, one double and one twin, sharing a family bathroom. Set all on one level, the living accommodation is in the form of an open plan area combining a sitting area with real wood burner, a dining set area and a fully equipped kitchen.

Outside, garden furniture allows you to enjoy the privacy of the grounds, with ample parking space available and walks through the surrounding gardens taking you to the tarn from where you can take part in some fishing. Located only three miles away from the famous market town of Kendal, Crook Howe Cottage is perfectly located for a family to base a holiday to the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.


A peaceful retreat
Slightly hard to find - could probably do with a pdf map, etc (Sat Nav utterly useless - sent us down farm tracks) - but otherwise very nice, marvellously quiet and in lovely condition. Lovely retreat for half term for the kids and us, I was working locally part of the week but lots of easy access to Lakes, Hadrian's Wall, etc. If only they could do something about the weather...

We had great time
We were looking for a cottage in the lake district for one week. The good reviews brought us to the decision to choose Crook Howe. And we didn't regret it. The cottage is very clean well equiped. It's quite small but absolutely ok for a 4 persons family. It feels as if you are in the middle of nowhere, sutrended by sheep and cattle. But supermarkets are only 10 car minutes away. Great nature is all around and nice places like Keswick and Windermere can be reached in about half an hour. It's absolutely worth visiting the cottage. The nature around allows a lot outdoor activity. The owners of the cottage live in the house next door and are very helpful. We got a lot of tips for going out to eat, activities etc. We felt as we could always get back to them with questions around the cottage or activity planning.

Amazing veiws
Well what can I say it was amazing the veiws were to die for and it was so quite and peaceful so you could relax, the cottage was clean and well looked after and the owners were great nothing was to much for them very helpful and polite it was warm and cosy and big enough for us and it also had everything we needed to enjoy our week stay there and we are already planning on coming back next year as even though it was in the middle if no where we got to loads of places within 10 to 40mins by car and its also a great place to cycle around and see the amazing views, there was so much to do that a week was not long enough for us and they also have great tea rooms in Kendal x a must holiday if you like exploring and seeing amazing sites and a boat cruise is a must as you see so much x

Peaceful retreat
The owners were welcoming on our arrival and ready to help if we had any questions or needed anything. The cottage is a modern purpose built holiday cottage - quite small with the kitchen, dining and sitting areas all in one - but had everything we needed. The main room was light and sunny with a large picture window and lovely view. The cottage, although only being about 5 miles out of Kendal and therefore near to all amenities, was located almost at the end of a single track road, so was very quiet with only farms nearby - we loved it to retreat to after a day in the very busy Lakes. The closest lake was Windermere and very easily accessible, as the rest of the South Lakes. What we liked best was the peace and quiet of the cottage, spoiled marginally by being next door to the owners' B&B; which slightly affected the privacy. But all in all we thought a very good choice for two people.
