More Information

With magnificent views stretching out over Ambleside towards the Lakeland hills, The Howes is situated just a short, convenient stroll from the centre of Ambleside, a bustling, lively little town. It is however off the beaten track, away from any traffic noise - in a peaceful cul-de-sac. Mike and Gill will make sure you are comfortable and keep you well-informed about any local events as well as places to visit and walks you can take. The Howes is modern and very well appointed. There is private parking, a lovely terraced garden with fine views, with many walks beginning right from the door. Close by is the well-known Stock Ghyll park, a delightful wooded ravine topped by a beautiful waterfall - just right for an early morning stroll. Out over the treetops views extend to the Fairfield Horsehoe and the Langdale Pikes beyond, while Wansfell (1500 ft) rises behind. AT 'THE HOWES' WE SERVE BREAKFAST IN YOUR ROOM AT A TABLE OR EVEN IN BED!!! On sunny mornings you can have breakfast on our sunny garden terrace.
