Location, comfort, warmth, atmosphere, practicality, space, all without parallel.
We walked in and felt immediately relaxed and at home.
Broad How is one of the most spacious houses I have ever stayed in. We instantly
felt at home. The kitchen was fitted out beautifully and actually had sufficient
fridge/freezer space for 2 families
We have been taking similar extended family holidays for 25 years, and the quality
and quantity of kitchen equipment, and children’s toys, were the best we have encountered
What a brilliant house in a fantastic setting. So well equipped. Magnificent kitchen.
Thank you. We would thoroughly recommend to others
Love the house – would love to come back. An extremely comfortable, warm house to
come back to after a day on the fells. Thank you.
Great place for family gatherings - there were 12 of us from various parts of the
UK - but with plenty of space to get away from one another when needed! Plenty of
good hill walks straight from the front door
Having searched widely to find a property that could accommodate our size of party
with pets we were exceedingly pleased with our choice. We are currently unable to
find another that matches it and seem likely to return next year!
The property and situation were both stunning. It is difficult to describe accurately
the magical situation in which the atmospheric period house stood. We were all completely
taken aback by the stunning scenery - chilly walks, a drink at the local pub and

to the local pub and is a splendid base for walking
The house was beautiful, and very well equipped. Could not have asked for a more

The location of the property is fantastic - both scenery and access to extensive
walking. The property is perfect for our needs with lots of space, facilities and
Thanks for the opportunity to enjoy this lovely house. Kitchen table big enough to
solve any family problems in safety! Fascinating library of books. Constant accompaniment
of birdsong in the gardens. Views from every window
The house lends itself to socialising, and the pages of the Visitors' Book are full
of the fun of family get-togethers, friends' reunions and celebrations. We have had
40th, 50th & 70th birthdays, ruby and golden wedding anniversaries, a proposal and
even a wedding here. But the house is big enough to allow one to escape the merriment
sometimes, and people also write appreciatively about: the space; the peace and calm;
rest, relaxation and recharging.
Over the years Broad How has housed walkers (of course), study groups, writers,
team-building groups, theatre groups and musicians rehearsing. . . . . .Each different
group writes about how well the house suits their needs:
