Howgill Accommodation

Occupying a spectacular location in the Howgill Hills, close to Sedbergh and Kendal is the tiny hamlet of Howgill. Dating back to Roman times, this sheep farming settlement sits along the old Roman road between Sedbergh and Tebay. There are still remnants of an original Roman encampment near Tebay, which is of great interest to historians. Remains of an old disused woollen mill are still visible in Howgill as evidence of the one industry which once thrived there and employed over a hundred workers, up until the 1800’s. The village is made up of a church, a school and a cluster of stone cottages with a village green, and has maintained its traditional and very friendly community atmosphere, still inhabited by generations of the original families who lived there. Many of the buildings have unique and quaint features dating back to the days when there was no electricity or gas, including fixtures and fittings used in the preservation of foodstuffs and even for slavery purposes. Walkers and wildlife lovers can take advantage of the many footpaths and trails that lead through and around the village, taking in some of the most breathtaking sights and spotting some of the wonderful wildlife and flora that fills the countryside. The hills above the village are perfect for fell racing, walking and climbing as well as mountain biking for the more adventurous. There is plenty of accommodation available in the nearby towns and villages, and with easy access to the rest of the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District it is an ideal area from which to base a short break or a family holiday.
