About the Location

Stable Barn is one of seven self-catering cottages that make up Near Howe Cottages. It occupies a stunning elevated tree-lined position, giving it glorious views out over arguably some of the most delightful countryside in the Lake District National Park. Originally built as a farmstead about 180 years ago, Near Howe remained the farmhouse to the surrounding farmland until the end of the 1960s when it was converted to a guest house.

More-recently, the farmhouse, barns and stable block have been lovingly converted into seven uniquely appointed holiday cottages and apartments, retaining much of their original charm and character. Set in four acres of carefully landscaped grounds, with many seating areas for visitors to relax in, it is a setting that defines peace and tranquillity.

Guests will benefit from being within very easy reach of the A66, midway between the lovely Cumbrian market town of Penrith and Keswick. Equally close at hand is Ullswater, topped and tailed by 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 famous huntsman John Peel.

The surrounding area can provide 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 our lovely Lakeland.
