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.

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... A FlipKey verified reviewer 2013-11-06
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. Niko 2013-10-24

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. Lynda Wright 2013-07-04
