Little Crake Howe description

Holiday home
Little Crake House is a delightful, ground floor cottage set on the owner's working farm, 4.5 miles from Kendal. With one king-size double and one twin bedroom, the property can sleep four people. There's also a bathroom with separate shower and a sociable open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburner and French doors. Outside, there is off road parking and a shared, large rear lawned garden and private patio with furniture. Set on the owner's working farm, on the edge of the Lake District, Little Crake House offers friends and families an authentic rural getaway.

A historic Lakeland town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th Century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. With other attractions such as Kendal Museum, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park, this is a superb base for a relaxing break.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Oil underfloor heating with woodburning stove. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, Smart TV with Freeview, WiFi, selection of books and games. Fuel, power and starter pack for stove inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels included. Cot and highchair. Off road parking for 4 cars. Large shared rear lawned garden and private patio with furniture.

Note: Property set on a working farm, children to be supervised and there may be some occasional noise experienced from farm machinery. Note: Property shares driveway access with the farm and small neighbouring static caravan site. The lawned garden is occasionally used by people staying on the small caravan site.

A lovely home away from home. The whole accommodation was even better than we expected. It is a great place to stay if you have children, we loved the large enclosed garden. We'd definitely stay here again.

This is a fantastic cottage, in a truly beautiful location, surrounded by hills and dales. The owners are very good hosts, a great deal of thought had gone into the outlay of the cottage. The facilities were fantastic; including electronic blind and window openings for the bedrooms, yet still retaining a comfy cottage feel. Highly recommend.

This cottage is beautiful in a great location with stunning scenery. It was spotless on arrival and was equipped with everything you could possibly need. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Its location is perfect for exploring both the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales. We can't fault it!

The cottage was beautifully decorated to a very high standard. It was great it rained so much as we had an excuse to stay in rather than go out! Cannot praise the cottage enough.

We had a fantastic family holiday at Little Crake Howe. The cottage is very well equipped and of a very high standard, a home from home. Our children loved the garden where they could play football and bounce on the trampoline. There is lots to do in the area for all the family, we can't wait to return sometime!

The cottage was pristine with all mod cons and no expense spared on furnishings. A washing machine was also provided in the utility room which was an added bonus. I cannot fault the property and will definitely recommend it to others and look forward to our next visit.
Mr Bassett

This is excellent property, which is decorated and equipped to a very high standard. We really could not fault it at all. As an added bonus, the cottage is located on a working farm and it was lovely to see the livestock and wildlife nearby. The views of the countryside and hills, were a daily reminder of the great location of the cottage.

Little Crake Howe is perfect! The location, the quality the welcome all of them outdo your expectations! The website does not do justice! From the moment you arrive you feel at home, this cottage is a paradise for relaxation but is just the right distance from nearby Kendal for entertainment! We ate in, we ate out it was great! I will be going back as soon as possible!!!!!

We have just returned from a week's stay at Little Crake House, what a shame we could not have stayed for longer, we were all sad to leave. The cottage is beautiful, it is well furnished with quality items right through, the bed's are so comfortable we would have liked to have brought them home, the photo's really do not do it justice, go & stay & you will know what I mean. The views are outstanding, there is plenty of parking & a lovely garden. It is well placed to visit the Lakes & also the Yorkshire Dales. John & Hazel are very friendly & there were some lovely goodies to welcome us when we arrived. Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful cottage, we will be back.

A real gem which more than matches the description in the web site. The location is ideal set in beautiful countryside which you access by walking out of the front door. Yet you are 20 minutes drive to the heart of the Lakes .However it is the quality of the facilities and the service of the owners which makes this cottage stand out.
Mr Rose
June 2015
The cottage was beautiful and in a superb location. The owners were very helpful and friendly, the cottage was very clean and tidy, the bed was very comfortable and the main bathroom shower was excellent. The cottage was ideally situated for touring the Lake District. Everything was in the cottage that you require while on holiday, and it had a lovely seating area, would definitely recommend to friends and family and will definitely be booking again.

Beautiful cottage in an excellent location. Everything we could have asked for and more. We did not want to come home! John and Hazel were lovely and made us feel very welcome! Would recommend this cottage if you are visiting the lakes.
