    • “A perfect 'get away from it all' place. Total peace and tranquility, even with a husband, two children and a dog in tow!! We have had such an enjoyable weekend. The gardens are beautiful with stunning views and plenty of places to just sit and soak it all in. The lovely town of Keswick is just a short drive away and there's a great farm shop five mins down the road. Howe End has everything you need for a stress free and relaxing break. It is well equipped, spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. We will definitely return.”

An idyllic location that will help you unwind and relax and enjoy the countryside on offer, a true Oasis of peace and tranquillity.
