Near Howe Cottages occupy a stunning elevated position on a tree lined knoll, giving glorious views over some of the most delightful countryside in the Lake District National Park. Originally built as a farmstead about 180 years ago, Near Howe Cottages remained the farmhouse to the surrounding farmland until the end of the 1960s when it was converted to a guest house.
Over the ensuing years, the former farm buildings which surrounded the delightful open courtyard, have been skilfully converted to form seven spacious and uniquely appointed self-catering holiday cottages, each retaining much of their original charm and character.
Sharp Edge is a stunning first floor apartment with stunning views over the surrounding fells from every room. You can even lie in the bath and savour the delights of Sharp Edge on Blencathra. It has been tastefully furnished to a very good standard.
Set amid carefully landscaped gardens and grounds, there is ample parking and space for visitors to relax in a setting second to none for its peace and tranquillity. Near Howe lies at the end of a delightful driveway across rolling Cumbrian farmland, but is within easy reach of the A66, between the lovely Cumbrian market towns of Penrith and Keswick. Equally close at hand is Ullswater, with Pooley Bridge at the north and Glenridding to the south, while in the opposite direction lies the picturesque village of Mungrisdale, and further at ’Back o’Skidda’ is Caldbeck, the former home of the famous huntsman John Peel.
The surrounding area provides many activities and pastimes, including golf, fishing, pony trekking, boating and walking, from the gentlest of rambles to the most strenuous of fell walks. For the not so energetic, Near Howe is the ideal base from which to tour the magnificent Cumbrian countryside and enjoy the scenic beauty of lovely Lakeland. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
Sharp Edge (ref UK1166) can be booked together with Howe End (ref UK1165), Howe Top (ref UK1164), Grisedale View (ref UK1163), Bannerdale (ref UK1162), Stable Barn (ref UK1161) and Saddleback Barn (ref UK1160) to accommodate up to 30 guests.

    Very clean, comfortable, cosy, well appointed and tastefully decorated cottage (upstairs apartment) with everything you could need for a short break included in the accommodation. Quiet location with lovely views. Hosts were lovely too and the ‘cottage’ felt very Covid-secure. There’s a long, steep and rough track up to the cottage though, so our 4x4 vehicle was perfect to cope with this but it might be interesting with a less robust vehicle. We didn’t need anything from local shops etc as we took food with us so just gave that an 8 rating as can’t really comment but Keswick (a few miles away) had a great outdoors market on the Saturday as well as lots of lovely shops so great for anything required. For days out we visited Wordsworth’s home at Dove Cottage in Grasmere, which was excellent. The Lakes Distillery, the nearby Wildlife park and the Coniston Gondola steamer are also highly recommended and we really enjoyed them all as they were very well organised and beautifully kept. Overall a really fantastic and relaxing weekend and we’d definitely like to return to the cottage (or if with friends or family to one of the other larger cottages). All highly recommended, and the weather was pretty good too!
