About Howgill Hall
Embrace the great outdoors at Howgill Hall, a Victorian country house in the Yorkshire Dales, at the foot of the Howgill Fells.
The location is a real clincher. The Hall sits peacefully amid rolling fields and stately trees, well placed for outdoor adventures including walking amongst the wild ponies, cycling, wild-swimming and star gazing. With easy access to the Dales, you may not consider venturing further afield, but even Lake Windermere is doable in a day.
Previously an award-winning boutique hotel, Howgill Hall has stylish, relaxed interiors with a distinctly homely feel. Two comfortable sitting rooms feature a log-burning stove and a multi-room sound system. The kitchen is absolutely top drawer, with a range cooker, double Belfast sink, espresso machine and oodles of fridge space. Uncork a bottle or two and make your way into the dining room where the table seats up to 16.
The stand-out bedroom is the Superior Double Plus, with an iron-frame, four-poster king-size bed, wet room shower and a chaise longue.
On summer evenings, dine outside on the south-facing terrace, with barbecue facilities and expansive views over the hills.
Howgill Hall is a standalone property, but larger parties should also consider use of the sister, four-bed house, just 50 metres away.
