Beware of 45% Year on Year Price Increase
Reviewed 16 november, 2021
Peaceful farm location overlooking Lake Bassenthwaite and the surrounding Northern Fells. However , the accommodation could be best described as BASIC with dated furniture and fixtures & fittings and soft well worn mattresses in the bedrooms. A standard basic full english breakfast is served , but dont expect a choice of how your eggs are cooked , its either fried eggs or nothing. A welcoming roaring log fire accompanies the guests at breakfast along with homemade cake by the fireside in the evening . There are no TV's to be seen anywhere in the accomodation , nor a radio of any kind , to compound this lack of communication the wifi reception is very unstable . Its the kind of place that most guests appreciate with the silence and tranquility and various species of birdlife and wildlife can be seen in the garden area. However , its the 45% year on year increase that I find disappointing. 2019 prices were £30 per person per night for 2 people in a double or twin room or £35 for single occupancy in a double room. For 2021 this has increased to £50 per person , or £100 per room for a couple . This represents a massive 45% year on year increase !! The proprietor , Mrs. Keren Lockwood maintains that prices are going up . Agreed , prices are indeed increasing , inflation is currently running at about 4% , Mrs. Lockwood , not 45% !!! I would suggest that your sons , Nimrod , Hawthorne and Cameron had some input into this massive price hike , but for £100 per night there is a surplus of superior accommodation available in the Northern Lakes , should customers feel they want an upgrade to what Mrs . Lockwood can offer for the same price.

Off the beaten track, step back in time for some honest, warm and welcoming comfort. Everything about the stay says Charm. Beautiful roaring log fire after 4pm with homemade cake and tea in china cups and saucers, lovely. Very knowledgable, interesting, helpful and welcoming hostess , was such a pleasure to chat with her. The gardens and grounds are fantastic for wildlife including woodpecker, nuthatch, blue tits, goldfinch and more. Cant wait to return, was a wonderful stay.

Sadly only stayed for one night on our way up to Scotland. We received a warm welcome on arrival by the owner and her two lovely dogs. The location is quiet and has stunning views towards the lake. The fruit cake and brownies were a welcome treat after a busy day in Keswick which is only a 10 minute drive away. Our room was large and spotlessly clean with everything you could need provided and had amazing views into the gardens and towards lake Bassenthwaite. Breakfast was fantastic with plenty of choice of cereals, toast, homemade bread and jam and of course the full english. Well felt Covid safe as this is being managed very well with a reduced guest capacity, sanitiser as you enter the property and additional sanitiser in your room. There is no tv or wifi which some would see as a negative but we found it a refreshing change to just sit and enjoy the amazing views. We would not hesitate to recommend staying at this property and will hopefully be returning in the near future. Thank you for a very welcoming stay.
The most beautiful place

We were travelling through Keswick and needed a place to stay, and we ended up stumbling upon Powter Howe. When we called to reserve, we found out we would be the only couple staying for the night. When we arrived, I was in completely awe. To be honest I've never stayed in a B&B before.. but this surpassed all of my expectations. The property is absolutely stunning. When we walked in, the hostess had the a beautiful log fire already going and it felt so cozy. We were shown to our room (so cute and what a view!) and had some freshly baked cookies and warm milk waiting downstairs for us. The best part was at night - i highly suggest going outside when it's dark and looking up at the stars .. one of the most incredible things I've ever seen in my life! Safe to say, I would highly recommend this B&B and we will for sure be back!!!
