Howtown house

4 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“A great house” It's hard not to love this house. Brilliant attention to detail: from the fires begin laid when we arrived, the hamper of essentials left for us, the suggestion of walks (a visit to the caves and stone circle being a highlight), the pub recommended for sunday lunch (Fetherston Arms with great food and real ales - wish we hadn't taken the kids we could have stayed there all afternoon), the toasty duvets…..I could go on but I think I'd bore you. A very lovely management team who were very helpful in the run up to our stay and very low key during our stay…there was a welcome lack of 'do this' or 'don't do this' signs in the house which made it feel more like home. I don't usually write reviews so that should be a testament to the great stay we had. Hope to find an excuse to go back soon.

Home Hall Farm

Howtown house

5 bedrooms / 5 bathrooms / sleeps 10

“A lovely house in a sublime setting” We loved this farmhouse, which has been intelligently restored and very nicely decorated. Our family was gathered for a wedding - held in another of the Rowley Estates properties - and the house accommodated eight of us very easily, particularly as each of the extremely comfortable bedrooms has its own bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed using the Aga, although there is a conventional oven and a microwave there too. The situation of the house is spectacular, looking out over the fells beside Ullswater, and the outside space has been designed to take full advantage of the setting: there is a terrace and a grassy garden which were hard to leave behind, even in the soft rain. The large, good quality, TV went down very well with the younger members of the family and the dog enjoyed gazing wistfully at the Herdwick lamb, which, curious, squeezed through the gate most mornings before being shooed back into its field. There is little that we didn't like: some of the terrace furniture is a bit rickety and the internet slowed down to a stop when we were all using it at the same time. There really is NO mobile phone reception, but there is a landline, which was a real advantage. The nearest food shop is quite a long way down the mountain and this should be borne in mind; we anticipated this somewhat and had a Tesco delivery (heroic, to get his van up those hairpin bends), but didn't order quite enough and ended up begging a 'mountain rescue' of eggs and potatoes from the extremely kind ladies of the Howtown Inn, just down the road. Next time, we'll stock up with provisions at the wonderful Tebay farm shop on the M6 just before/after Penrith. Dealing with Christine and Jilly over the booking and logistics was a pleasure. We felt very well looked after by them both and much look forward to returning to the house one day soon.

Wythburn Cottage

Howtown house

3 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Breath taking views - and that was just inside the cottage!” Our stay was with family, and I had not advised them of our accommodation, so to see their joy at the grandeur of the cottage was a fantastic feeling and a brilliant way to start our holiday. The master bedroom was like something out of a fairy-tale and the other 2 twin rooms were just as masterful in their appearance. The evenings spent in the dining hall chatting about our day’s excursions over dinner was an event in itself, and such a wonderful way to plan the next day’s itinerary – even if it did take several hours and few bottles of wine! It was a memorable say and fantastic value for money that I don’t think can be surpassed. I will and have recommended this to friends, family & work colleagues, they won’t be disappointed. Five Star accommodation, five star booking service and the information received by the management team & Christine prior to our stay was invaluable. A truly amazing experiance that you must try yourself.

Hause Hall Farm and Cruik Barn

Howtown house

“Heaven on Earth” Our stay at Hause Hall Farm and Kruik Barn was out of this world. Everything about the property was of the very highest standard. It was a haven of peace and tranquility and the perfect base for a large group of friends. The owner, Christine Rowley was very helpful and a great source of information about local resources and amenities.

Blencowe Hall

Howtown house

12 bedrooms / 11 bathrooms / sleeps 24

“Wedding of our dreams!!!” There are no words to describe how amazing this property is. We stayed here in May 2015, for 3 days, with 18 relatives to celebrate our wedding. The typical British weather managed to hold off long enough for us to get married in the idyllic setting on the lawn underneath two magnificent trees. Jilly and her girls made sure that our stay was faultless with nothing being too much trouble. All of our guests were mesmerized by the venue each room lovingly restored with great thought and impeccable taste. The photos in each room to illustrate the scale of the restoration was a nice touch. A week to the day since we arrived, my only wish is that we could go back and do it all over again. Thank you to Jilly and Blencowe hall for making my wedding dreams come true.

Melmerby Hall

Howtown house

9 bedrooms / 9 bathrooms / sleeps 18

“Everything we hoped for.........and a lot more!” We rented the property for our daughter's enormous and extended wedding after deciding that it offered everything we required-space, beautiful grounds, stunning ground floor rooms and spacious attractive bedrooms with ensuites. The wedding was a complicated occasion which required considerable organising, but throughout the whole process the entire team involved with Melmerby Hall were helpful and answered queries and requests extremely promptly. Special thanks should go to all the housekeeping staff who keep the Hall in an exemplary manner, the groundsman Gavin, Helen who observed the registry part of the marriage in an unobtrusive manner, Charles and Christine, who dealt with our many questions and lastly Gilly who has been incredibly helpful and a fantastic advisor throughout the wedding planning and actual wedding. Melmerby Hall was described by one wedding guest as a magical kingdom, it certainly was for our special occasion.

Cazenovia Hall

Howtown house

4 bedrooms / 4 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Absolutely perfect stay in idyllic country home.” We booked the three adjoining properties of Cazenovia Hall, Riverain and Wythburn cottage to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday with family and friends. We had viewed the properties on the website and were expecting a very high standard, but they even surpassed all our expectations. Cazenovia Hall had all the facilities of a 5* hotel, with beautifully furnished and decorated ensuite bedrooms, an outstanding galleried kitchen and dining area and wonderfully comfortable sitting room, which led out onto a huge private patio. We had enough room to entertain the whole party comfortably for the whole weekend. The kitchen area was incredibly well laid out and had exceptional facilities for cooking and preparing dinner. I loved the aga, which heated the entire room and made it so convivial. It was so well equipped that we had no need for anything. On arrival, we found it spotlessly clean, all the rooms were absolutely immaculate and we were delighted with the generous hamper and provisions that had been provided for our stay. All the little things had been considered, such as nightlights, candles, matches, charcoal and firelighters for the barbecues, which made it into a home from home. We really had the most wonderful time and have so many happy memories of our stay. The outdoors were as impressive as the interior, with beautifully tended gardens, flowering shrubs and trees and the wonderful trickling stream. We could not have asked for a more perfect stay and would stay again at the drop of a hat. Thank you to the Rowleys and all the staff who must work so hard to keep this property at such an exceptional standard. We hope to visit your other properties and feel assured that the standard of all would be absolutely comparative.

“Definately a 5* property with all the trimmings” Thank you Christine and Jilly we had a great time at Riverain, everything was 5 star including the welcome hamper. The position 10 minutes from Penrith was perfect for us all, 3 travelled by train from Glasgow, 1 by car from Harrogate and myself from Cheshire all taking 2 hour door to door. We all take turns of booking a 6 monthly girls away trip and have been as far afield as Dubai and last year had 2 trips to lodges at Gleneagles, Riverain was given top marks by us all.Everything we needed was there and ithe kitchen was so well equipped, including nice sharp knives which is usually a problem in holiday homes. We loved the wood burner and how great to have a constant supply of really nice dry logs,. We all agree a great venue and great property we will be back.

Elk Cottage

Howtown house

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 4

“The Ritz-Carlton of vacation rentals” Superb. Everyone in my family was impressed as soon as we entered the property, a place we would have been proud to call our own home. The photos in the Rowley Estates website capture the ambiance to some degree, but the reality is even better. Attention to details distinguishes it from other rental properties. Just to note a few examples: - spotlessly clean - furnished and decorated tastefully, and as you would a real home - generous welcome basket (bottle of wine, bread, cheese, juice, milk, cereal, variety of fruits, etc) - bbq grill, _and_ a bag of charcoals and new-looking bbq toolset - umbrellas - laundry detergent - variety of glasses for different types of wine: red, white, champagne - Hand blender - some toys for the kids We are very much looking forward to more opportunities to stay at Elk cottage and other properties managed by the Rowley Estates.

Hesket Newmarket cottage

3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Quick visit for mountain biking and beer” Although only a short stay it was a delightful one. The principal reason for the trip was to get out on a good mountain bike ride. Our ride was an all day epic starting from the front door and out over the fells, finishing in the pub in Hesket Newmarket just down the road. It was great to explore fells I've never visited before and a special mention should go to the Old Crown Pub in Hesket Newmarket for its great ale. The accommodation was clean and bright and surprisingly spacious. The cottage is approached up a drive that keeps you nicely away from the road and leads to a paved area which looks like a good spot to eat outside, although we didn't on this stay, preferring to walk back to the pub instead. Living room has a lovely view across the paved area to the trees on the valley side opposite. The cottage had a good sized modern kitchen and bathrooms which looked to have been recently refurbished, comfy bed and nice garden. I intend to visit again with family later this year.

Cazenovia Hall
Exceeded Expectations!

Cazenovia Hall was the perfect vacation home! It has been renovated to a very high standard but still maintains the charm of an ancient building. We really enjoyed using the Aga but there is a modern stove as well. The views out all of the windows were beautiful. The layout of the house is very convenient and each bedroom has its own bathroom. The location was great and we had fun exploring Greystoke and Hutton in the Forest nearby.see more
Melmerby Hall
Beautiful

We hosted our wedding at the beautiful Melmerby Hall, what an amazing place to create new memories with all our friends and family. Everyone enjoyed using the House and Stag Cottage next door, the atmosphere was relaxed and the sun shone, I realise that our booking did not include guaranteed sunshine but it did add to the fun, we were able to use the garden all afternoon and even got some beautiful pictures within the wooded grounds. thank you to the Rowley Estates for thinking of everything, a lovely welcome hamper and well equipped kitchen meant we were able to make and serve a wonderful buffet. we actually live across the road in Melmerby but staying in the luxurious yet homey Hall made us feel like we were all on holiday. The last night we stayed we had a mass game of hide and seek, adults and children all loved this game which gave us lots of laughs and wonderful memories to take away with us.see more

Excellent Accommodation and superb family holiday

The accommodation is truly first class and everything a family of 5 could wish for (and more) was provided. Eight adults could easily be accommodated in this property. The Hall was of a very high standard and everything had been carefully considered right down to the welcome basket. My children's favourite trips out were to Honister Slate Mine http://www.honister.com where we did the mini tour and Urban adventure, next to Carlisle castle http://www.urban-adventure.co.uk/home.asp We all had a super holiday exploring the beautiful sites of Cumbria during the day and then returning to luxury accommodation at night with the lovely countryside views. We would all thoroughly recommend the property and the owners are a sheer delight to deal with.see more
