Everything was perfect including the weather. We were made very welcome from the moment we got there and didn’t want to leave. The cottage was well equipped and the location was ideal. Plenty to see from caves, waterfalls, castles and Hadrian’s wall not too far. We saw a tawny owl in the nearby woods which made my grandsons day and the night sky was amazing with no light pollution.
Would highly recommend this area and especially Howlugill Barn. Thank you.
Magical area.Stunning countryside studded with dry stone walling field boundaries.Beautiful hillside views.Sheep, lambs,cows,rabbits,red squirrel,grey squirrel,deer,pheasants,curlews, all spotted whilst out and about(and most of these from the windows of Howlugill barn).The property was all that I hoped it would be(spacious, well furnished,very well equipped,clean,peaceful and quiet.)The owners, Jackie and David made us very welcome.
We really didn't want to leave this wonderful place this morning. Spent the perfect week there. Beautifully furnished. Best weeks sleep on the most comfortable beds. Will miss the call of the curlew, the house martins flitting in and out of their nests feeding their young and the lapwings in the field . It is incredibly quiet with wonderful views.
A truly perfect place to stay..a magical setting. Mrs Seddon made us very welcome and Howlugill Barn has left us with some precious memories.
