This luxury first floor apartment is one of 7 cottages at Near Howe. The property has stunning views over the surrounding countryside, you can even enjoy 'Sharpe Edge' on Blencathra from the bath!
Located almost mid-way between Penrith and Keswick, a mile off the A66 with easy access both to Keswick and Ullswater both 15 minutes away. An idyllic location that will help you unwind and relax and enjoy the countryside on offer, a true Oasis of peace and tranquillity. Mungrisdale is a small hamlet with a fine local pub by a meandering stream which serves excellent bar meals. During warmer weather the stream is often filled with children paddling whilst the parents enjoy a lazy afternoon with a picnic whilst soaking up the scenery.
We are delighted to offer this superb, self-catering development of 7 properties that sit in a truly idyllic, elevated location with panoramic 360 degree views to nearby Saddleback and the Mungrisdale Valley. The cottages are located in a courtyard development next to the owners home who have used their extensive self-catering experience to cater for your every need and pride themselves on the standard of accommodation that they provide. The cottages are approached by a 1 mile track over the moorland amid 380 acres of classic Lakeland scenery.

A high standard apartment, massive bathroom with bath & separate shower cubicle, bedroom beautiful got a travel cot in there too. Living space a little small (well you can't have it all ;p) would have like a sofa to cuddle on.
Owners very helpful, grounds amazing and views are stunning. Would highly recommend.

We stayed in Sharp Edge which had everything we needed for our stay including the biggest bed ever. The views were fabulous. This is a beautiful place to stay in a beautiful part of the country with superb hosts and great pubs/restaurants close by.

Second time in 6 months that we have stayed for a week in Sharp Edge. Lovely apartment, very spacious for the two of us and our labrador. Contains everything you could possibly need for a week away, and to the very highest of standards. Very luxurious - especially the super king bed.
Steve and Jill, the hosts, are a lovely couple and very helpful.
Great location - everywhere is accessible from here. Lots of pubs in the area serving bar meals at affordable prices - most of which are dog friendly (very important to us).
We'll definitely be back - hopefully in another 6 months.

Sharp Edge is situated within easy reach of the Northern Lakes. The accommodation is fresh and comfortable with great views of the local fells. The service was excellent, plenty of accessible grounds to relax in, games for wet days & walks for fine days. The best thing was enjoying the views of the local countryside whilst luxuriating in the bath!
