Howe Foot Holiday Cottages

Guestbook and Guest comments

Garden Cottage

The Garden Cottage at Howe Foot is the perfect little retreat for your stay in whilst exploring the Lake District. Living in a traditional English cottage, with a roaring fireplace, sheep outside your window, and a big cosy bed, can't be beaten.

Everywhere you look is like a postcard, you can enjoy the views from your own little terrace that is right next to your cottage which contains chairs and a cool slate table. Running through the bottom of the land is a relaxing stream that is surrounded by perfectly manicured plants!

Jill & Richard - West Yorkshire

This was just as perfect as the first time we stayed. Had rain, wind and sun. Did several walks from the Bill Birkett, Low Fells book. Howe Foot is my idea of paradise. I cannot praise the cottage enough.

Otley Beck Cottage

We have loved staying in your gorgeous holiday home. All the small touches have made it so special - thank you! It is a little place of beauty and we will definitely be back one day! Thank you for having us and letting us share your piece of heaven xx

Janene and Paul

You know how much you love a place when you simply don't want to leave. This little slice of heaven is a home from home and an escape that we both desperately needed. We can't thank you enough for sharing your hard work with us. It's been such an enjoyable and peaceful trip, we'll certainly be returning to Howe Foot again!

We have had the privilege of being the first paying guests in this beautifully restored cottage [Otley Beck Cottage]. Sue and Martin have done a wonderful job of creating a very relaxing place in which to stay, so much so that it is difficult to tear yourself away from all the wildlife and the tranquil setting! Sue and Martin are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Simply a fantastic place to unwind and explore the surrounding area. We have also experienced a brilliant week of hot weather and enjoyed bird-watching on many of the estuaries and nature reserves - it really is a special area for so many birds. Watch out for dippers in the beck. We just can't wait to return. Thank you Sue and Martin for an exceptional experience.

Peter & Susan - Wiltshire

We really appreciate your charming and beautifully maintained cottage - and applaud all the talent, attention to detail and TLC that went/goes in to creating it. Well done and thank you!

Marie-Louise & Laurent - London

Brian & Glenys - Billingham

Another amazing stay at Howe Foot - everything is perfect, as usual! We will definitely be back - can't wait already. Thank you, Sue and Martin.

Katie & Steve Underwood, Nottingham

Otley Beck epitomises the William Morris quote: "Have nothing in your homes you do not know to be useful and believe to be beautiful" So many little touches which combine to give the best holiday-from-home. Despite Storm Doris which did its best to dampen our spirits we were more than happy to stay in, light the stove and listen to the rain on the roof. A happy holiday indeed!

Malcolm and Helen

Thank you for a perfect stay in Otley Beck, the cottage and location are truly stunning. We have enjoyed the amazing walks around these parts and coming back to cook on the Aga and light the fire. Hope to visit again next year xxx
