How Head House Guest Reviews

Simply to say thank you so much for enabling me to fulfill all I wanted to do with my family in celebration of my 70th birthday.  The setting - the fantastic view - and the luxury accommodation just blew me away - made me cry in fact  - when we walked in and saw how fabulous it was.

Our stay at How Head House was great. Wonderful views and not too far to walk into Coniston. Facilities at the cottage were good and everything was very clean and tidy. The shower in the ensuite off the dining room was exceptional - plenty of power and hot water!

The house is a very well decorated, finely presented and adequately equipped house. The views are stunning and makes the stay much more special. We loved the house! The kids enjoyed the stay and loved the fact that there were so many games. The people were friendly and helpful. The house is beautiful and hope it continues giving lots of people great breaks.

This house is beautiful and the scenery is spectacular! Our family have had a wonderful time here and would recommend a holiday here.

Thank you Mike and Rebecca. After spending the preceding week in a VW camper van, this was like living in a luxury tardis! Fanastic!

Thank you so much for letting us share your beautiful way of life here at How Head House. Our sister Deb is a very good host and we have enjoyed her company plus the awesome views!

Our eighth year in the lovely house - we seriously love it.
The Arnold Family

Our second visit to this fantastic house in such a wonderful location.  We range in age from 7 to 81! We had a great time climbing The Old Man of Coniston, the younger members of the family spent time playing hide and seek in the garden and we enjoyed a lovely family meal outside admiring the spectacular views.

Lovely views, lovely weather, perfect house for our combined families.  Games room a big hit with everyone.  We've aways enjoyed our times in the Lakes and this was fabulous.

We had the most wonderful stay here.  Glorious weather meant lots of walks followed by log fires.
The house is lovely with stunning views - the boys adored the games room and spent hours there.
We'll definitely be back.

Dear John and Clare
Having just returned from How Head House we wanted to write to extend our thanks to you.
All our party had a most enjoyable week at the property, which far exceeded our expectations. The cottage was extremely spacious and comfortable and the views are quite spectacular: we were quite happy to sit outside of an evening and just quietly enjoy the silence and panorama in the fading light! I believe we were all in agreement that How Head House is the nicest self-catering property we have ever stayed in.
Our thanks to you and the team and we look forward to exploring your properties again in the near future.
With best wishes

We stayed at this beautiful cottage Christmas 2013, we had a family get together, it was one of the best Christmases we have had, the cottage was clean and tidy, all amenities and the view was magnificent, we would like to thank the Lakeland Cottage Company for an easy process and fantastic stay.
