We have just returned from a weeks stay at Near Howe. This was our second stay and our second in Sharp Edge. We were met with a friendly welcome from Jill and Tia (the family dog) on arrival and swiftly shown to Sharp Edge, our home from home for the week it is fair to say. We first stayed here two years ago for a short break, and it had not changed a bit, which is no bad thing! Sharp Edge is furnished and decorated to a high standard and was nipping clean on arrival. The Kitchen is equipped with everything that you may need during your stay, and the bed is just divine! The views are spectacular, and the weather was fair enough to be able to sit out on one of the many seating areas to enjoy all the more.
Information on Near Howe, activities in the area and suggested places to eat out is readily available in the unit along with a nice bottle of wine which was a lovely surprise. It is hard to find a fault with Near Howe or the hospitality of Steve and Jill who own it. We will definitely be returning for a third stay, hopefully sooner rather than later.
