Howe Foot Holiday Cottages, Lowick, Cumbria

Enchanting Self-catering properties 'Just for Two' near Coniston Water, Lake District, established 2007

Cross the small bridge over the beck and you arrive at the enchanting spot of Howe Foot in Lowick near Coniston Water where two perfect little self-catering properties - Garden Cottage and Otley Beck Cottage - stand in one acre of grounds. Beyond lies peaceful, idyllic countryside; inside all is cosiness and lovely craftsmanship.

Garden Cottage, the first of our two properties, was once a workshop for the making of oak swill baskets, a Lake District craft for hundreds of years. The cottage has been fully renovated and makes for a delightful holiday home, with its oak beams, slate floors and rugs and wood-burning stove. There's a kitchen with a gorgeous Rayburn cooker, sitting room, bedroom and shower room, all on one floor.

Otley Beck Cottage is our newest holiday cottage, with chunky oak beams and curves, nooks and crannies to delight everyone who stays here. Downstairs, there's a kitchen with a beautiful aqua coloured Aga cooker, a sitting room with wood-burning stove, a shower room and a second bedroom for when two friends are sharing. The kitchen overlooks the beck while upstairs, a gallery bedroom has lovely views out over the fields. All in all we think it makes an irresistible Lakeland retreat!
