Within the curtilage of 17th century Castlehowe Scar, The Cow-House has been renovated and converted to the highest standards of modern comfort and luxury whilst retaining the character and cosiness of a traditional stone farm building.


Westmorland slate roof supported by five Cumbrian round pillars set within the walls which are in places three feet thick.


Three ancient ventilators atop the roof – “cupolas” as the Americans would call them.


Small, walled garden, decking with glorious views to Cross Fell and the high Pennines for BBQ or sitting in the morning sun for breakfast.


A secure lock-up has been provided for bikes as well as a  hose pipe for cleaning same.


Private off-road parking.
